Powertrains of the 2017 Subaru Legacy: Take Your Pick

The 2017 Subaru Legacy is one well-equipped and extremely capable midsize sedan. There are five available model options: The 2.5i, 2.5i Premium, 2.5i Sport, 2.5i Limited, and the 3.6R Limited. All five of these come with standard symmetrical All-Wheel Drive, as you would expect from a Subaru. Also included for all models is a Lineartronic Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT), with a 6-speed manual and paddle shifters. For optimal performance and responsive, sharp handling, the new Legacy possesses Vehicle Dynamics Control (VDC) with Active Torque Vectoring; quite an impressive feature to be included standard for all models!

The standard 2017 Subaru Legacy contains a 2.5-liter SUBARU BOXER four-cylinder Engine, that delivers 175 horsepower and 174 pound-feet of torque. This engine uses a double overhead camshaft (DOHC) and a Dual Active Valve Control System (DAVCS). The pistons of the SUBARU BOXER engine are parallel to the ground, rather than vertical or in a ‘V’ shape like most. This results in an improved distribution of weight for better handling and torque. Regarding fuel efficiency, it received an EPA-estimated rating of 25/34 city/hwy MPG.

If you are interested in more power under the hood, you can upgrade to a much more powerful engine with a higher trim. If you do so, your Legacy will have a 3.6-liter SUBARU BOXER six-cylinder Engine, again with DOHC and DAVCS. This aggressive engine can produce up to 256 horsepower and 247 pound-feet of torque! Its EPA-estimated rating is 20/28 city/hwy MPG. With exhilarating power and acceleration, the 2017 Subaru Legacy becomes even more of a blast to drive with this engine!
