Subaru Crosstrek Towing Capacity

 The new 2020 Subaru Crosstrek provides Vail and Grand Junction drivers with a whole lot to love, including two competent towing capacities. Learn more about what each requires:

  • 1,500-pound Maximum Towing Capacity: This towing capacity is what's provided with the 2.0-liter DOHC four-cylinder SUBARU BOXER® engine with 152 hp and 145 lb-ft of torque. 
  • 1,000-pound Hybrid Towing Capacity: The hybrid 2.0-liter DOHC four-cylinder SUBARU BOXER® engine with 137 hp and 134 lb-ft of torque increases efficiency, but decreases towing-capacity by 500 pounds.

Looking for a way to make your Subaru look lean and clean while also giving it plenty of towing capability? Opt for the available Trailer Hitch and Ball Mount accessories (200 lbs tongue weight), and add on the Trailer Hitch Cap to keeping your towing kit clean and out of the way when you don't need it.

Towing Capacity Enhancing Crosstrek Features

The Subaru Crosstrek has plenty of standard and available features that help it achieve fantastic results when towing heavy loads around Grand Junction. Here are just a few notable ones: 

  • Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive -- From increased traction to increased stability, standard Symmetrical Subaru all-wheel-drive gives the Crosstrek an edge when towing.
  • Brake Assist -- This advanced driver assistance technology applies the brakes automatically when equipped on Crosstrek models when it senses an imminent collision.
  • Vehicle Dynamics Control -- When equipped, this technology used sensors to evaluate and monitor the Crosstrek in relation to other vehicles on the roads of %%target_city_2%% and beyond. If drifting or swaying is detected, braking power and/or torque reduction are applied to keep everyone safe. 
  • High-Strength Steel Body Structure -- This advanced construction technology equips the Crosstrek with reduced vibration and increased structural rigidity, lending to its impressive safety.
  • Available Hill Descent Control -- This feature comes paired with Subaru X-MODE® to help the Crosstrek maintain consistent, safe speeds when traveling down steep slopes.
  • Available X-MODE® -- Subaru X-MODE® helps the Crosstrek engine, transmission, and other mechanical components work together better in slippery or otherwise adverse weather and road conditions.
