A few weeks ago, Subaru made a big announcement that would make most Subaru owners happy.
It announced that it had been awarded the $5.9 billion contract to build the next generation of the Subaru Foresters.
The company had already won that contract before the company got the nod for this new vehicle.
Now, Subaru has revealed the details on the project, and while it doesn’t go into detail about how much it’ll cost, the company says that it’s “trying to bring the best of the past to the future.”
What it does say is that it’ll have a very basic service system in place, so we’re not sure what that means.
What’s more, the Subaru website does not offer much more than a list of things it plans to do to make the Forester “fit” with its brakes.
The most obvious of these is a new brake-mounting bracket that Subaru says will be used for the entire transmission and rear axle.
The idea is that this will make the brake system easier to install on the Foresters because it will allow the installation of all four brakes, and all four of those will be on the same bracket.
The rest of the bracket will be a set of three mounting points for the front brake, the rear brake, and a set for the rear wheel.
But what about the rest of this system?
This is where the whole “future of service” thing gets a bit murky.
Subaru says that the new system will have a “low-level sensor that detects when the front or rear brake is about to fail.”
That means that when the brakes fail, the vehicle will know to put them in reverse.
Subaru won’t say how much the system will cost, but the company did mention that it hopes to have it on the market by 2021.
We’ll be curious to see how it compares to what other automakers are already offering, like Ford and Honda.
Subaru is also offering a new, improved brake controller that is a “system for better braking performance and safety.”
It’s also making the Forestar’s brakes much quieter and has promised that the system can be installed “at home or in the field.”
There are a couple of other things to note about this new system, but that’s about all we can do at this point.
The biggest change will be that the Forests will be equipped with a new front brake that’s a hybrid between a normal-sized brake and a larger one.
Subaru has said that it wants to make this one as close to the OEM’s standard brake as possible.
But that won’t mean much when it comes to performance.
We’re going to have to wait and see how the new controller performs in testing, but at this time, the Foreters will only be able to go from 0-60 in 3.5 seconds.
That’s a bit slower than the new Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution, which is 0-62 in 3 seconds.
The new controller will also use a new electronic brake pedal that will also be a hybrid brake.
This new controller is expected to be the most expensive brake controller to be made and the most complex controller to produce, and Subaru has not yet announced the price.
We’ve reached out to Subaru to get more details on how it plans on pricing the new brake controller, and we’ll update if we hear back.
Subaru’s announcement is one of the first big announcements Subaru has made since announcing the Foreys successor to the WRX.
