The 2020 Subaru Ascent Proves the Brand's Three-Row SUV is Sticking Around Rutland

When the Ascent made its exciting debut just a year ago, it represented big changes for the new Subaru model lineup. Adding a three-row SUV to the mix showed that Subaru was dedicated to delivering more options for families from Manchester, VT, Lebanon, NH and Glens Falls, NY, and now with the new 2020 Subaru Ascent, things are only getting better. Head on over to our Rutland, VT Subaru dealership and see if the new 2020 Ascent is the right fit for you and your family driving around Middlebury, Bennington and throughout southern Vermont.

2020 Subaru Ascent: What's New in Rutland?

Being only a year old, the 2020 edition of the Ascent didn't really call for a huge redesign, but there are some additions. The rear-seat reminder alert system is a nice upgrade, especially if you regularly drive kids around who forget to shut their doors when you park. Also new is a set of power-folding side mirrors, giving you a little extra room when navigating in tight parking spaces and elsewhere.

Performance and Capabilities

The single engine grade for the 2020 Ascent is a capable turbocharged 2.4-liter four-cylinder, which offers 260 horsepower and 277 pound-feet of torque. Like with other new Subaru models found here in Rutland, the Ascent comes standard with AWD, which is pretty much a necessity when it comes to safely driving around southern Vermont or elsewhere in the northeast.


Safety and Technology


Along with the new upgrades added to the fold, the 2020 Subaru Ascent is loaded with helpful tech. You start off with a three-zone climate control system, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone integration, a rearview camera and more. For driver aids, the standard Subaru EyeSight suite includes lane-departure warning, forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking and more, with other features available in the higher trims.
