The 2015 Outback will arrive at dealerships this summer. It is redesigned for the new model year.
The top-of-the-line Subaru Outback 3.6R Limited starts at $33,845, including shipping.
All 2015 Outback models come standard with a continuously variable transmission (CVT) with paddle shifters. The base 2014 Outback 2.5i is equipped with a standard six-speed manual transmission. The upgrade to a standard CVT accounts for the price increase. If consumers compare the 2014 Outback with a CVT to the new base model, there is a $525 price differential. The 2014 Outback 2.5i CVT starts at $25,320, including an $825 destination charge.
The addition of the standard CVT helps to boost the Outback's fuel economy, according to the automaker. Subaru said it expects the 2015 Outback to return 25 mpg in city driving and 33 mpg on the highway, compared to 24 mpg in city driving and 30 mpg on the highway in the 2014 model. The EPA has not posted official fuel economy numbers for the 2015 Outback.
Added as standard for 2015 are X-Mode, Hill Descent Control and Hill Start Assist. They augment the standard Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive to help the driver in navigating rough roads, slippery surfaces or steep inclines.
"All trim lines add more standard amenities, conveniences and new infotainment systems for 2015," Subaru said in a statement.
A moonroof and power rear gate option package adds $1,695 to the bottom line.
Edmunds says: The price increases on the redesigned 2015 Outback, but there's a new standard CVT and lots of extra touches.
