Subaru is returning its Baja model. This pickup truck lasted for four years only. During this one generation, it was a very popular model thanks to its design and versatility. The 2020 Subaru Baja Pickup Truck is about to return. With crossovers and SUVs getting more popular, Subaru will try to deliver something unique and new.
Ford Ranger is coming back in the United States and Jeep is releasing new Gladiator pickup. On top of that, Ram Dakota is the all-new model. Thanks to that, Baja Pickup Truck will find a tough competition on the American soil.
2020 Subaru Baja Exterior Redesign
Interestingly, the all-new 2020 Subaru Baja Pickup Truck will share a lot of things with Outback SUV. Two models are very similar in numerous categories. Moreover, Ascent model will have a great impact in terms of styling. Similar styling cues and the same design language are visible at first glance. However, the pickup looks very aggressive and mean. Logically, Baja is larger and its sports larger features.
On the other hand, features are very similar if not the same. Baja Pickup is both longer and wider than its smaller SUV sibling. The front grille looks very imposing and modern. The side profile is cleaner, while the rear fascia looks attractive. We are still waiting for full exterior details. Subaru will offer a lot of off-road gear.
The forthcoming 2020 Subaru Baja Pickup Truck will use unibody architecture. The body-on-frame platform was rumored, but that will not happen. In a combination with a flat engine, unibody architecture will deliver sportier ride. Everything was said on the preview of the original concept. The same concept is the only information about the interior.
We haven’t seen a product model, but concept will show us how the cabin looks like. A four-door layout with modern design is what we expect. Comfort is guaranteed and Baja Pickup Truck will include a couple of old-school details. Some reports are suggesting an all-new dashboard that wasn’t in use before.
If the reports are correct, 2020 Subaru Baja Pickup Truck will use a Boxer engine. This four-cylinder flat unit comes with greater stability. Most of the manufacturers are opting for an inline-four engine. What about the cons of the flat-four engine? Well, the biggest con is noise. However, Subaru fans like the sound of the Boxer powertrain.
A 2.5-liter turbo-four that produces 310 horsepower is the most realistic option. A flat-six output that delivers 256 hp is another interesting rumor. A CVT transmission and AWD system will be available only on special or high-performance versions. Subaru will release full specs in the coming weeks.
2020 Subaru Baja Pickup Truck Price and Release Date
The forthcoming 2020 Subaru Baja Pickup Truck will compete in the mid-size segment. It is the most packed segment and is full of established models. Baja will deliver superb handling and great driving ability.
Performances are great, but still far from the best-in-class. The new pickup will cost around $26,000. It will go on sale in the coming months. The most realistic release date is the first quarter of 2020.
