The 2019 Subaru Ascent will be unveiled at the 2017 L.A. Auto Show on November 28.

Previewed earlier this year with the Subaru Ascent Concept, the new three-row crossover will be bigger than ever. After its debut, the Ascent will be sold exclusively in North America and serves as a successor to the B9 Tribeca. We will find out more once the vehicle debuts later this month, but Subaru said the Ascent will be powered by an all-new turbocharged boxer engine.

The concept measured 198.8-inches long from bumper to bumper, making it about the same length as the Ford Explorer. It does however, ride on a wheelbase that is four inches longer, giving the Ascent shorter overhangs up front and in the rear.
