Subaru Confirms New 3-Row Crossover for 2018 will be Built in U.S.

Subaru will bring an all-new three-row crossover to market in 2018, and the SUV will be built in Indiana.

The new crossover will replace the discontinued Tribeca, but will be bigger and have full third row capability. The SUV hasn’t been named yet, but it could have a look inspired by the Viziv Concept (pictured above) unveiled recently. We can expect the crossover to have permanent, symmetrical all-wheel drive, obviously, and it will likely boast a full suite of autonomous technology and driver assistance technology. It could even have a hybrid powertrain.

The new crossover will be the largest one in Subaru’s lineup, as the Japanese automaker doesn’t currently have one with three rows. The Tribeca was bigger than the Outback, but neither SUV has a third row.

Subaru has has seven consecutive years of sales records and sales have tripled since 2007. The Indiana production plant also makes the Legacy, Outback and the new Impreza sedan and hatch will be built there as well.

    I hope this pans out- it’s time for Subaru to challenge the mid-full size SUV market.

    I would just be happy if they’d put a 6 in the Forester so it can tow AND have 4 passengers.
