The 2014 Subaru Forester has a starting price of 21,995 USD, without the 825 USD destination fees. Subaru of America, Inc. today announced pricing for the all-new 2014 Forester. The 2014 Forester 2.5i model will be available in base, Premium, Limited and top-line Touring versions. Pricing for the Forester begins at $21,995 for the base model 2.5i with a six-speed manual transmission. The turbocharged Forester 2.0XT will be offered in the Premium and Touring versions, with the Premium trim offered at $27,995. These prices all reflect MSRP before the $825 destination charge.
For this money customers will get the entry-level 2.5i variant fitted with a 6-speed manual gearbox. Under the hood is a 4-cylinder, 2.5-liter engine producing 170 hp (127 kW) and 174 lb-ft (235 Nm) of torque.
Offered as standard with AWD, the new Forester with the 2.5-liter mill can do 24 mpg city / 32 mpg highway with the CVT while the manually-equipped version does 22 mpg city / 29 mpg highway. Clients can get this engine in Premium, Limited and Touring trims.
The beefier 2.0-liter, inline-four turbocharged engine is available only for the Premium and Touring trims. It begins from 27,995 USD (without destination charges) and offers 250 hp (186 kW) and 258 lb-ft (349 Nm) of torque. Available exclusively with the CVT, the Forester 2.0XT does 23 mpg city / 28 mpg highway. The 2014 Forester will lead the segment in all-wheel drive fuel economy, with the 2.5i model achieving manufacturer’s fuel economy estimates of 24 mpg city / 32 mpg highway / 27 mpg combined. Those figures also compare well with competitors that feature front-wheel drive.
The new Subaru Forester will build on the sales success of the previous generation, which helped the Subaru brand to achieve four consecutive annual sales records. The 2014 Forester is expected to sell in even greater numbers than the outgoing model.
