2019 Subaru Pickup Truck Review & Changes – A Subaru pickup? Indeed, a Subaru pickup. That is what our guy Theo Chin has prepared up for us right now. And it is not as nuts as it may appear at first. Subaru appears in the minority amongst well-known, volume-market Japanese automakers that is not going to remain competitive in the massive market for pickup trucks in the United States. Toyota, Nissan, and Honda do. Mazda, Mitsubishi, and Subaru will not, currently. Nevertheless, they each failed to so long back.
As just recently as 2006, Subaru supplied a version of the Outback with a pickup bed furniture referred to as the Baja. Since (in general Chevy conditions) was better in developing to an El Camino than it had been to the Colorado or Silverado. That only is sensible, considering that – regardless of its adopting of all-wheel drive and off-road durability – Subaru has not yet jumped into the SUV market the way its competitors have. The Forester only progressively became into suitable sport-ute measurements over subsequent decades and the Tribeca… nicely, that had been a full flop.
The Viziv-7 concept introduced last full week at the LA Auto Show demonstrates whatever we believe will come up as a more productive successor to the Tribeca. And however improbable, it could possibly probably direct to a pickup version as nicely.
If this performed, it will (like the Hyundai Santa Cruz) most likely arise much closer in kind to the first-generation Honda Ridgeline than to the Nissan Navara on which the designer clearly used the Viziv’s styling cues. But hey there, if Renault and Mercedes can base their pickups on the Nissan, why not Subaru, way too?
