Japanese car firm Subaru have recently released teaser images of a newly updated Forester Sti model which will officially receive a grand debut later on this month from the Los Angeles motor show. It was ten years ago that the vehicle was first released onto the road and now the company are looking to update the vehicle in hopes of keeping the car as a top contending competitor on the market especially when it comes to taking on some of the competition around from the likes of Nissan and German company Audi.
The Forester has been an addition to Subaru's SUV division and has achieved some great success since 2004. The SUV market now though has vastly expanded and has received many brand new additions which have helped to shape the market as a whole. Subaru are now looking to react to this big change with a few changes of their own. The Forester has offered customers a money saving SUV with great power and performance abilities over the past ten years and now the company are set to do the same with even more features included in order to wet your appetite.
Well considering the power and performance attributes is one of the main areas focused on with the Forester Sti, it is believed that a tweaked version of the turbo charged engine found in the Impreza Sti will be brought into play. A 2.5 litre turbo charged unit was used in the previous model so we would not be surprised to see this tweaked and returned to the car much in the same manner that the Impreza received. A total power deliverance of around 250 brake horse power is also expected to be delivered by the vehicle.
Thanks to the expected engine to come along with the vehicle, you can expect to see the car reach a top speed limitation of somewhere around the 150mph area. A standard manual six speed gearbox and four wheel drive platform is also expected to return with the vehicle.
It has been confirmed that the car will receive its first official debut to the public from the LA motor show on the 25th of this month. A price tag and launch date still remains unconfirmed for the car but it is expected that the vehicle will not go on sale here in the United kingdom much like its predecessor but there is a small chance it may. As soon as more about the Subaru Forester Sti is revealed from LA this month, we will keep you updated with all of the latest news.
