I don't think there is either. Maybe Subaru just wants to finish up this run of Outbacks with its current configuration and migrate over to a new engine/trans combo with the next model. Maybe the economy of scale metrics don't work out to pay for changes to line production in the US or something.

It's strange that they did it mid-model on the Forester though. Maybe because it is built in Japan?

It is a bit baffling to say the least.
