Its mid- to low-range torque offers power when you need it from a complete stop. You’ll find that it’s responsive around town and satisfying on the highway, thanks to a remarkable 174 lb-ft of torque. Combined with the Lineartronic® CVT, it’s even more fuel-efficient and clean-running, earning it PZEV classification and a spot amongst the most eco-friendly cars on the market. Not only is it the largest, most refined SUBARU BOXER® engine available, but the 3.6-litre engine also offers smooth power delivery, a quiet ride, low emissions and commendable fuel economy. Light, compact and perfectly balanced by design, it features the Dual Active Valve Control System for impressive torque when you need to pass another car or start from a stop at a red light or stop sign. And to help ensure your Outback gets optimal fuel economy at every speed, the 3.6-litre engine has been paired with the smooth and efficient high- torque Lineartronic® CVT.
