With 2018 on its way out and 2019 just around the next bend, it’s time to get excited about more and more 2019 Subaru models hitting our lot. Here at O’Brien Subaru of Fort Myers, we’re always excited when we get to learn about new models of our favorite vehicles, and we never want to pass up an opportunity to share what we know.

That brings us to the upcoming 2019 Subaru Forester. When it debuts, it will join other 2019 Subaru models currently available like the 2019 Subaru Ascent, Subaru Crosstrek, and Subaru Legacy.

2019 is looking to be an excellent year for the acclaimed Subaru Forester. With a small price bump but plenty of new standard features, it’s definitely worth a look. Featured standard equipment coming with the 2019 model includes 17-inch steel wheels, the Subaru STARLINK® infotainment system which comes with Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto®, and the Subaru EyeSight® suite of safety aids. Notable driver safety aids include adaptive cruise control, lane-departure warning, and automatic braking.

Also new for the next model year is another trim level known as the 2019 Subaru Forester Sport. This trim adds distinctive styling to the SUV via black exterior accents, black alloy wheels, and a roof spoiler. In addition to the Intelligent and Sport modes, this model adds a Sport Sharp driving mode.

Only one engine option is available on the 2019 Subaru Forester, but we’re confident drivers in the Orlando, FL area won’t have any complaints. The next model features a 2.5-liter flat-four that puts out 182 horsepower and 176 lb-ft of torque.

We’ll keep our Bonita Springs, FL Subaru drivers updated on details of the upcoming 2019 Subaru Forester as we learn more. In the meantime, visit us today for all your Subaru needs like Subaru service.
