  • Subaru to build a three row crossover vehicle soon!

The vehicle will be built at the Subaru plant in Indiana and construction will start by 2018.

Subaru confirmed they will soon start building a new vehicle. The vehicle will be a three row crossover. The vehicle will be built at the Subaru's Lafayette, IN, factory. The news was confirmed by Subaru’s all-wheel-drive specialist.

Production of the three row cross over will begin in 2018. The vehicle will be larger than the three-row Tribeca. It is unclear if the current vehicle will revive the Tribeca. The company Subaru has only admitted the new car will have a name synonymous with outdoor adventure. The name will be consistent with the other successful cross overs by Subaru. 

Tom Easterday is the executive vice president at Subaru of Indiana Automotive. According to Easterday they are delighted to bring even more Subaru manufacturing to the US. The new Subaru model will bring increased investment at SIA, along with several suppliers across the country.

Tom Easterday executive vice president, secretary, and chief legal officer of Subaru of Indiana Automotive said: "We are delighted to be bringing even more Subaru manufacturing to the U.S. The new model will also result in increased investment at SIA and at several of our suppliers across the country."

Currently the Subaru's Lafayette, IN, factory builds the cars Legacy and Outback. By the time construction on the cross over starts manufacturing the Impreza will be finished.

Construction on the new Impreza compact sedan will begin in 2016. The crossover will be the fourth model in the 3 row cross over. The cross over will also be the fourth model to be produced in the US by Subaru. 

Thomas J. Doll, President and COO of Subaru of America said "We have enjoyed record sales for seven consecutive years and the introduction of an all-new, American-made Impreza followed by an all-new larger 3-row crossover will help keep our sales momentum strong."
