Mechanical - Subaru Ascent specs near Detroit

Under the hood of the 2020 Ascent is a 2.4-liter turbocharged flat 4-cylinder engine that produces 260 horsepower and 277 lb-ft of torque. It is tied to a continuously variable transmission, and the vehicle uses an all-wheel drivetrain. With its configuration, the Ascent's fuel economy peaks at 21 mpg in the city and 27 mpg on the highway, and the SUV can tow up to 5,000 lbs. The Ascent is particularly noted for its balanced ride and handling, considering its size. Credit is due to its four-wheel independent raised suspension (MacPherson strut design in the front, double wishbone design in the back) and electric power-assisted steering. The Ascent also has remarkable undercarriage protection due to its 8.7 inches of ground clearance.
