2013 Subaru Outback in Tennessee


What makes the 2013 Outback Subaru's midsize family hauler just right for Middle Tennessee drivers? 


2013 Subaru Outback starts with two powerful engines to choose from. The 2.5 horizontally opposed 4-cylinder Subaru Boxer engine benefits from a 16-valve, double overhead cam with a dual active valve control system. This is standard on the 2.5, 2.5i Premium and 2.5i Limited. These models deliver a generous 173 horsepower and a matching, accelerating 174 lb-ft of torque. That's a lot of zoom. The engine's aluminum alloy composition keeps it lightweight and makes the engine's hp even more powerful.

For those who want even more zoom, there a 3.5 liter Subaru Boxer 6-cylinder. With more liters and more valves, of course, it gets more horsepower. You'll find this engine on 3.6R and 3.6R Limited. Just imagine hitting the highway with 256 horsepower and 247 lb-ft of torque. The Tennessee turnpike just got faster.


Fitted with the 2.5 and the 2.5i Premium the 2013 Subaru Outback offers a fully-synchronized 6-speed manual transmission. If you think you know what it's like to drive a manual, you probably haven't experienced this one. With the Subaru Boxer engine, you'll find this fully-synchronized transmission is smoother and better than any other manual today.

The 3.6R and 3.6R limited models come with Subaru's 5-speed adaptive electronic transmission. This has special downshift rev-matching control. This system is the only one that can match the outstanding horsepower on the 3.6 liter engine.

The 2.5i Limited offers Subaru's exciting Lineartronic transmission. This automatic is a continuously variable model that isn't limited by five or six speeds. It reacts in real time rather than on a pre-set schedule. Still, it has a 6-speed manual mode with paddle shifters. Imagine an automatic and manual in one sweet package.


Every 2013 Outback benefits from sensitive power steering. The steering senses engine speed and adjusts steering tension to match handling needs. Brake assist adds force in an emergency. Stability and traction controls are standard.


Not surprisingly, the Subaru Outback offers extremely generous passenger space for each occupant. The cargo area offers almost 35 cu.ft. Can you say vacation? For even more cargo space, the rear seat can be folded down. This is the perfect vehicle to haul home your latest project from the hardware store or your latest purchase from the big box store. 


The 2013 Subaru Outback features Bluetooth for phone and audio, an MP3 jack, and iPod interface. Some models offer a Harmon Kardon audio system and an integrated navigation system with touchscreen. For comfort, the standard AC is CFC free. A dual zone automatic system with rear duct vents is available on many models. The 2013 Outback is also fitted with  EyeSight driver-assist system.


Get Out There

Of course, the 2013 Subaru Outbackwas designed to help drivers do more outdoors. It can tow up to 2,700 pounds. It has an 8.7 inch ground clearance. Roof rails are standard. These integrated, retractable cross bars can bear up to 150 pounds of weight. Symmetrical All Wheel Drive helps drivers endure the ever-changing Tennessee weather. The available wiper de-icer and heated side mirrors are two more reasons that Tennessee drivers like the Outback.
