Will There Be a Subaru Pickup Truck?

It has been speculated that Subaru may be bringing a pickup truck to the market, with some sources suggesting that it may arrive as early as 2020. While nothing has been officially confirmed, the rumors have been gaining traction in recent months.

The Subaru pickup truck is said to be based off of the company’s popular Forester SUV. It would likely include a longer bed, with a more powerful engine than the standard Forester. It would also feature all-wheel drive, as expected from Subaru vehicles.

The rumored Subaru pickup truck is expected to be quite capable off-road. It will reportedly offer up to 8.7 inches of ground clearance and have up to 11 inches of wheel articulation for unexpected terrain. Additionally, the vehicle may come with a 2-speed transfer case for improved off-road performance.

Subaru has yet to make any official announcements about their plans for a pickup truck. However, reports suggest that it could debut at the 2019 Tokyo Motor Show or at an event scheduled for later in 2019. If it does come to fruition, it will likely face competition from other midsize pickups such as the Toyota Tacoma and Chevrolet Colorado.


Ultimately, whether or not there will be a Subaru pickup truck remains to be seen. However, if it does come out it could become a popular choice in its class due to its capable off-road features and all-wheel drive system.
