Default New Subaru Forester, Saab "B9 Tribeca" to Debut at New York Auto Show

New Subaru Forester, Saab "B9 Tribeca" to Debut at New York Auto Show

http://www.edmunds.com/insideline/do...ticleId=104994



Quote:
NEW YORK Subaru is planning to introduce its redesigned 2006 Forester wagon at the New York auto show, which opens this month. The vehicle will go on sale in the United States in June or early July, but a company spokesperson told Inside Line in a phone interview that no estimated price or engine specifications are available yet. The spokesperson did confirm the automaker's high-powered Forester Turbo model will continue into this new generation.

Subaru may also allow Saab to produce a version of its forthcoming B9 Tribeca SUV. Saab's new 9-2X wagon is based on the Subaru Impreza. A Saab spokesperson said in a recent phone interview with Inside Line that the company "is seriously studying" building its own version of the B9 Tribeca. At the New York show, Saab will show a version of the Subaru seven-seater called 9-6X.

What this means to you: With each automaker becoming ever more intricately entwined with other automakers, the auto-industry family tree is bearing some interesting fruit.

And maybe the Legacy will get a rear seat entertainment package, too, like this one in Japan:

The leaked document that confirms the 2.5L WRX also seems to deny the possibility of a 3.0 Legacy.

The redesign of the Forester above is said to only be around for a year or two as FHI changes the face of all models over to the B9 look according to Car & Driver.

hmmm ... I thought the SAAB version of the B9 was a sure thing; this article makes it sound very speculative

In the new C&D there is a two page ad for the Saab 97X. at first glance I thought that it looked like the B9 but brushed it off as coincidence. I'm not sure if this is the model that they are talking about but it does resemble the B9.

No, the '06 Forester is based on the '05 Forester. It's just a mild restyle of the front end and some other details. It is still an SG model like the 2003-2005 models which does make it similar under the skin to the GD Imprezas.

Note that there is no 6-cylinder Legacy, and no 2.0 Liter WRX ... unless they're hiding on the next page.

There was a TSB describing the OBD-II capabilities of the MY2006 Subarus. Not exactly a leak.

If you want a leak, try this page describing the 2006 Forester (Canadian-spec, normally aspirated):

It originally appeared at LegacyGT.com

You'd think the Canadian Forester would come standard with a rear LSD...

I'm hoping the engine upgrade in the WRX will be announced there as well.

You'd think that by 2006 the Forester would at least have disc brakes in the rear.

Only the X model has rear drum, the rest of the models are disc the whole way around.

Still though, the Forester X is the ONLY Subaru model to not have 4 wheel disc brakes. Even the base Impreza 2.5 has 4 wheel disc. It just seems rather silly to only have one model without 4 wheel disc brakes, and its not even the cheapest car they make.
