There are plenty of rumors that 2021 Subaru Pickup Truck is arriving and Ascent SUV will inspire it. Some of the renderings are available and we can see that the upcoming model is wearing almost identical design as its sibling SUV.
Generally, the design is robust and recognized, thanks to Subaru’s latest language. That is not all, we also heard that the upcoming pickup truck would borrow the same engine from Ascent. Literary, that means a hybrid system will power it.
2021 Subaru Pickup Truck Design
As we mentioned, renderings of 2021 Subaru Pickup are available and Ascent SUV inspires the upcoming model. That means plenty of elements are the same. However, the brand’s latest pickup truck will ride on a new Global Platform. Thanks to this platform, the Subaru has enough room to implement the battery bellow surface. So, we think a hybrid model is a huge possibility. Design-wise, Subaru’s pickup truck will borrow almost everything from its SUV sibling.
Generally, looking to renderings, pickup truck compared to Ascent SUV is more massive and it hosts a huge bed. From what we heard, the pickup truck will be offered only in one version with four-doors. Most likely that it will come standardly with an all-wheel-drive setup. If that happens, more stability and headling can be expected.
The forthcoming 2021 Subaru Pickup Truck thanks to the new platform should provide roomy and comfortable cabin. We think that the cabin will combine features from the Ascent model and the Viziv concept. Generally, expect a beautiful interior. From what we heard, the Subaru pickup truck will be available in three trims. This includes Premium, Limited, and Sport trim levels. So, depending on trim, the interior will be different.
Expect a lot of new technology and even better safety systems than on many trucks in the class. Unfortunately, this is all details that we know about Subaru’s cabin. More information can be expected later this year.

That means Subaru pickup truck might use a 2.4-liter direct-injection four-cylinder engine that delivers almost 300 horsepower and 280 lb-ft of torque. However, we don’t know anything about transmission at all. From some speculations, this model might come with an eight-speed automatic transmission with optional CVT.
Also, expect a new pickup truck that sits higher than the Ascent SUV. If you can’t remember, Ascent SUV provides 8.7 inches of ground clearance. However, Sport trim offers even higher ground clarence, raised suspension, and an all-wheel-drive system.
