Subaru will build a combined 1,050 50th Anniversary Edition models for the Crosstrek, Forester, Impreza, Legacy and Outback, while the WRX, STI and BRZ will have a further combined total of 1,050 for a total run of 2,100 cars. The vehicles are intended to commemorate the Japanese automaker’s arrival in America back in February of 1968. The first Subaru sold stateside, in case you were wondering, was the Subaru 360 – a tiny, 1,000 lb city car that was at one time one of the most popular vehicles sold in Japan.

Full pricing and production details for the 2018 Subaru 50th Anniversary Edition vehicles can be found below.

    Kudos to Subaru and Happy Birthday. However I have to agree with a lot o people, there needs to be improvements in the power department as well as engine design and refinement. Sure, if something is not broke, it doesn't need fixed; however, when your competition is innovating and you are not, you are falling behind. I too would like to see more colors on both the outside and inside and a wider availability of color combos vs their limited combos now. 50 years is supposed to be something special and other than the badges, how "special" will these trims be when it is just one color. At least they didn't do the Chevy thing and add stripes of a questionable color.
