Report: Subaru Legacy with something hotter than the 3.6 boxer 6 is coming

Likely due between now and the 2015 Legacy’s mid cycle refresh in three years is a shrunken and revised flat six. Likely to improve on the existing 256 bhp offered in the 3.6 H6, the new engine may use a combination of turbocharging and/or direct injection to accomplish this feat. A source within Subaru has also confirmed that the engine will likely drop down to 3 liters.

Subaru may also be launching a three row B9 Tribeca successor in the next couple years and it would not be shocking if this new powerplant, likely grafted only to a CVT will make its way out at that point too. A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away, Subie offered us the 2.5 liter GT only with a standard transmission; though this option may sound tantalizing in a sharper and more modern form, don’t count on it. The slightly peppier 2 liter four out of the Forester Turbo and current WRX sedan might show its face in the interim period. Between now and then, stay tuned and let us know if you hear anything.
