The i-Active Lift System (AVLS) a broad torque curve and response at all engine speeds, also helping to improve efficiency.

Whether teamed to the new 6-speed transmission or the Lineartronic CVT, the 2010 Outback provides acceleration than comparable Outback models. Either helps make the 2010 2.5i models more in everyday driving.

All-New Variable Transmission (CVT)

has adopted a chain-type CVT, the first longitudinally mounted CVT for AWD production vehicles. Unlike a automatic transmission, which fixed gear ratios, a CVT infinite variability between the and highest available ratios no discernable steps or shifts. The CVT and smoothly adapts to performance helping to keep the engine in its efficient operating range for fuel economy and performance.

The is in significantly improved fuel to 24 mpg (EPA combined rating) up last year’s rating of 22 mpg

Because a CVT does not shift the driver enjoys smoother in all driving situations. The selectable mode of the Lineartronic CVT uses six ratios to allow the driver to manually using steering paddle controls.

3.6-liter Engine: Premium Performance Regular-Grade Fuel

The 3.6-liter Boxer engine replaces the 3.0-liter Boxer, yet features external dimensions due primarily to a shortened connecting rod design. As a this larger-displacement, more engine maintains its excellent low of gravity while improving delivery and significantly improving the experience. Active Valve System (AVCS) variable timing on both the intake and valves optimizes power across the engine’s speed while helping to reduce

The 3.6 engine produces 256 horsepower at rpm and 247 lb-ft of peak torque at rpm, compared to 245 hp at 6,600 rpm and 215 of torque at 4,200 rpm for the previous engine. Notably, the 3.6 engine at least 225 lb-ft of torque 2,000 to 6,000 rpm, the Outback 3.6R feel smooth and responsive in everyday

Not only does the 3.6 engine greater performance than the 3.0, but does so using regular-grade fuel compared to recommended in the 3.0. The specially five-speed automatic transmission, with the greater torque of the new engine, helps make the 3.6R more responsive driving in hilly areas by reducing “hunting” between The 5-speed automatic transmission incorporates improved downshift logic, which helps responsiveness.

Symmetrical All-Wheel A Key to Brand Identity

Subaru three different Symmetrical Drive systems in the 2010 line, each one tailored to the of transmission. In Outback 2.5i equipped with the 6-speed transmission, the Continuous AWD system a viscous-coupling locking center to distribute power 50/50 to rear. Slippage at either set of will send more to the opposite set.

Outback models equipped with the CVT use Active Torque Split An electronically managed continuously transfer clutch actively power distribution in response to conditions.

The Outback 3.6R the Variable Torque Distribution AWD system with a 5-speed automatic transmission. A planetary differential works with an controlled continuously variable transfer clutch to manage distribution. The VTD system normally more power to the rear (45:55) to enhance handling and it continuously adjusts power in response to driving and road
