2014 Subaru Forester goes official [video]

Subaru has officially revealed the 2014 Forester. It will make its public debut at the end of the month in L.A.

Subaru has revealed the 2014 Forester, ahead of the car’s debut at the Los Angeles Auto Show.

After seeing it in a leaked brochure and then in a parking lot, now we have official images and video. This is the fourth generation of the crossover and will be available in the U.S. with a choice of two engines.

The first is a 2.5-liter, 4-cylinder boxer naturally-aspirated unit with 170 hp (127 kW) and 174 lb-ft (236 Nm) of torque, connected to a six-speed manual or a CVT. The second engine is a 2.0-liter, 4-cylinder boxer turbocharged unit with 250 hp (186 kW) and 258 lb-ft (349 Nm) of torque, mated exclusively to a CVT.

Compared to the model it replaces, the new Forester has grown in size as it is 4,595 mm (+35mm) long, 1,695 (+20mm) wide and 1,795mm (+15mm) tall, with a 2,640mm (+25mm) wheelbase. The 2.5-liter version gets 17-inch alloys, while the 2.0-liter turbo model is offered with 18-inch wheels.

More details will be released during the L.A. Auto Show.
