Subaru Reveals 2021 Ascent Pricing

2020 Subaru Ascent, Predecessor to the 2021 Ascent | Beaverton, OR

Subaru took the world by storm when it announced its largest SUV ever — the Ascent — at the 2017 LA Auto Show. Since then, the vehicle has gone on to earn praise from organizations like the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, as well as winning awards from publications like Wards. Now, Subaru pulled the curtain back on how much the hotly-anticipated 2021 Ascent will cost.

According to a press release from the automaker, the 2021 Ascent will see a $300 price increase from the 2020 model year, adding up to $32,295. The minor price bump reflects a series of improvements, including additional safety systems and a highly-capable powertrain.

The most notable upgrade comes in the form of an expanded version of Subaru’s innovative EyeSight® Driver Assist Technology, which now features Adaptive Cruise Control with Lane Centering Technology, Lane Keep Assist, Steering Responsive Headlights with High Beam Assist, and a Second- and Third-Row Seat Belt Reminder.

You can also expect the 2021 Ascent to perform up to Subaru’s standards, as it comes standard with Symmetrical All-Wheel-Drive and X-Mode® with Hill Descent Control. At the end of the day, you’ll be able to tow up to 5,000 pounds.

Even with the $300 price hike, the Ascent still clocks in with a lower starting price — and more standard features — than competitors like the Mazda XC-9 and the Buick Enclave.

If you can’t wait until the launch of the 2021 Subaru Ascent, check out our current inventory of 2020 models at CARR Subaru in Beaverton, Oregon.

Subaru Wins a Silver Halo Award for Reducing Waste at National Parks

2019 Subaru Crosstrek | Beaverton, OR

Subaru has a well-earned reputation as an environmentally focused brand. Recently, those efforts earned the automaker a 2020 Silver Halo Award, which recognizes businesses that promote helpful social and environmental causes.

In collaboration with the National Parks Conservation Association, Subaru of America has furthered its “Don’t Feed the Landfills” initiative by launching recycling and composting programs at three of America’s most beloved parks — Denali, Grand Teton, and Yosemite. Since the pilot program began in 2015, it has diverted over 16 million pounds of waste from local landfills.


“Our national parks represent the very best of the American great outdoors, and we feel a responsibility to keep them clean and free of waste for future generations to enjoy,” remarked Alan Bethke, the Senior Vice President of Marketing for Subaru of America.

Theresa Pierno, President and CEO for the National Parks Conservation Association, says that the automaker’s zero-landfill practices have helped the park system learn more about the best way to implement recycling programs at the parks. She expressed that the NPCA hopes to implement these waste-reduction practices in parks nationwide.

Tips for Spring Cleaning Your Subaru in Beaverton

Tips for Spring Cleaning | Beaverton, OR

Winter weather can do a number of your Subaru, so it’s important to give it a fresh cleaning during the spring. Follow these tips for spring cleaning your vehicle to keep both the exterior and interior in good condition.

Wash and wax

Take your Subaru to a car wash that participates in the WaterSavers® program to clean the exterior without being wasteful with water. If the car wash missed any spots, you can use a clay bar to remove additional dirt or grime. Then, you can apply wax to protect the paint and make your vehicle shine.

Wipe the glass

Be sure to wipe down glass surfaces in and out of your Subaru. When cleaning windows from the outside, wipe horizontally, and then wipe vertically from the interior. By using two different motions, you will be able to more easily tell which side of the glass has any streaks.  

Utilize a vacuum

If you have floor mats in your cabin, remove them and clap them together to get rid of dirt. You can then vacuum the remaining dirt. If your vacuum has a brush tool, you can use that to clean off the dashboard, while you can use a crevice tool to clean the hard to reach places.

We at CARR Subaru have a well-equipped service department that can handle your seasonal maintenance. Stop by when you need repairs, replacements or routine services.

Safety with Subaru AWD

Safety with Subaru AWD

Shopping for a new car can be confusing with all the new available features, trims to choose from, and powertrain options. For those who live in the Portland, Oregon area, it’s important to remember that maintaining traction on your commute to work throughout the winter is a necessity. Front-wheel drive powertrains only deliver power to two wheels at a time, where all-wheel drive systems delivers power from the engine to all four tires simultaneously. If one or two tires slip, your all-wheel drive system will keep you going with the other two tires maintaining traction.

While many brands from Ford to Honda offer their vehicles standard in front-wheel drive with all-wheel drive available at a higher price tag, Subaru offers most of their major models standard in all-wheel drive, from their SUVs such as the Subaru Crosstrek, Ascent, Forester, and Outback, to their sedans such as the Legacy and Impreza. Keep your family safe with the benefits of all-wheel drive.
