The 2024 Subaru Ascent will arrive at U.S. dealerships this fall with virtually no changes after receiving extensive styling and tech updates for 2023. The Ascent is Subaru’s largest vehicle in North America and has three rows of seats for up to seven or eight adults. It debuted in 2019 and is competing in a highly competitive segment dominated by stalwarts like the Ford Explorer, Honda Passport, and Kia Telluride, to name a few.
But with standard all-wheel drive, turbocharged power, and a moderate sprinkling of advanced safety and infotainment systems, the Ascent remains a solid pick for a capable and versatile family SUV.
The 2024 Subaru Ascent has inherited the changes of the outgoing model, like a new front grille, reshaped LED headlights, and redesigned taillights. The 2023 Ascent was standard with an 11.6-inch infotainment touchscreen; you’ll find this across all trim variants of the 2024 Ascent. Furthermore, all new Ascents with the Harman Kardon QuantumLogic audio system get an available Cabin Connect system that allows the driver to communicate with third-row passengers.
All Subaru Ascents feature a 2.4-liter turbocharged Boxer four-cylinder with 260 horsepower and 277 lb-ft. of torque. The engine mates to a continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT) with eight virtual gears and paddle shifters for manual gear shifting, sending grunt to all four wheels using the brand’s symmetrical all-wheel drivetrain with X-Mode and hill descent control. The powertrain enables the Ascent to tow up to 5,000 lbs.
Meanwhile, the Onyx Edition, Limited, and Touring variants have an optimized X-Mode feature with Snow/Dirt and Deep Snow/Mud settings. And despite its all-weather and rugged capabilities, the Ascent achieves an EPA-rated 21 in the city, 27 on the highway, and 23 combined.
Subaru’s EyeSight is standard for all Ascents, regardless of the trim level. The package includes adaptive cruise control, lane-keeping assist, rear cross-traffic alert, blind-spot monitoring, automatic rear braking, and more.
The 2024 Subaru Ascent has six trim models: Base, Premium, Onyx Edition, Limited, Onyx Edition Limited, and Touring. Below is a breakdown of the standard equipment and pricing of each trim level.
