Is The Subaru Outback Capable Of Towing?

The Subaru Outback is the true definition of an SUV, sports utility vehicle, and is ready for anything life throws your way. Flexible cargo room? Check. Commanding performance? Check. Towing abilities? Check.

Like all other Subaru’s the Outback comes standard with a horizontally opposed BOXER engine for spirited and efficient performance. The BOXER engine is a key feature of the Outbacks performance along with the standard Symmetrical All-Wheel-Drive that evenly supplies power to all four wheels evenly and will automatically shift power to maintain optimal traction and control no matter where the road may go. The 2019 Subaru Outback features two BOXER engines; a standard 2.5L four-cylinder with 175 horsepower. Or for more powerful performance the available 3.6L six-cylinder with 256 horsepower. Both BOXER engines are capable of towing up to 2,700 lbs. Which is perfect for a small trailer camper, pop-up camper, a little boat or jet skis.

In addition to standard Symmetrical All-Wheel-Drive the 2019 Outback features a number of other performance standard features that add to safe towing performance. Like Active Torque Vectoring which works in tandem with Vehicle Dynamics Control to apply braking power to the inside front wheel for better handling, sharper turn-in, more neutral steering, and higher cornering limits while turning. X-Mode with Hill Descent Control also is standard on the 2019 Subaru Outback and works by optimizing engine output and transmission ratios to reduce individual wheel spin on slippery surfaces. All of the standard performance features of the Subaru Outback make the Outback one of, if not, the most well-equipped SUVs in its class. The result of all the standard performance features of the Outback is a commanding grip on the road no matter where you may go.

When gearing up for a weekend adventure the Subaru Outback also offers impressive cargo space as well as standard roof rails. The flexible roof cargo carrying system features roof rails with built-in crossbars that fold out when you need them and can tuck away when not in use. So you can easily attach a cargo box, ski rack or bike rack to your Outback for whatever your adventure calls for. Inside the Outback is 35 cubic feet of cargo space with the 60/40 folding seats up. When the seats are laid flat you will have up to 73.3 cubic feet of maximum space to meet your needs.
