The Ascent is well-built in the U.S.A. for long-lasting quality. With 96% of Subaru vehicles sold in the last 10 years still on the road today, you can count on it being part of your family for all the adventures ahead. That legendary reliability is one reason why Kelley Blue Book awarded Ascent with the lowest 5-Year Cost to Own in its class for 2021 and named Subaru as their Most Trusted Brand for seven years running.
The Ascent offers the most towing capacity of any Subaru vehicle ever, along with an available Class III trailer hitch, 277 lb-ft of torque, and a wide selection of racking accessories so you can bring along all the gear you’ll need for all the places you’ll be able to go.
