  • 2.5L SUBARU BOXER® four-cylinder engine with Dual Active Valve Control System (DAVCS)
  • 182 hp @ 5,800 rpm and 176 lb-ft of torque @ 4,400 rpm

Towing Enhancing Features

With a plethora of performance features available, the new Forester isn't just a strong SUV, but the ride is ultra-smooth. Get a boost in towing and performance with your 2020 Forester standard features, which include:

  • Active Torque Vectoring: Works with VDC to create neutral steering, sharper turns, and increase cornering limits.
  • Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive: This unique AWD system offers a balanced distribution of power between the wheels for a more refined AWD performance. 
  • Traction Control: Uses VDC for an all-wheel, all-speed traction control system. It senses loss of traction and applies braking force to the slipping wheel.
  • Trailer Stability Assist: It senses unsafe conditions and applies the brakes to the necessary wheels to help the driver maintain control.
  • Vehicle Dynamics Control (VDC): The sensors in this system monitor a variety of factors, including wheel speed, brake pressure, and the steering angle. In the event the system detects the vehicle is heading off the driver's intended path, VDC will apply the brakes or reduce torque to correct the vehicle's path. 

Grand Junction drivers can upgrade to higher trim levels and gain additional access to more features for smooth towing, like X-MODE®and Hill Descent Control. X-MODE® works to increase traction and minimize wheel spin across all types of terrain, while Hill Descent Control helps maintain a constant speed while traveling downhill.
