What engine and drivetrain does the 2022 Ascent use?

The 2022 Subaru Ascent is home to a turbocharged 2.4L H4 Subaru Boxer engine. This kicks out 260 horsepower and 277 lb-ft of torque. Subaru uses flat-four cylinder engines, also known as H4 engines, instead of inline-four-cylinder engines to give the vehicles a lower center of gravity, improving traction. The engine is mated to a Lineartronic Continuously Variable Transmission. For additional driver control, the Ascent offers steering-wheel-mounted paddle shifters with an 8-speed manual function. Of course, the Ascent comes standard with Subaru's symmetrical all-wheel drive with X-MODE. The X-MODE system optimizes and coordinates the hill descent control, all-wheel drive, vehicle dynamics control, throttle, and transmission systems to provide world-class control on slippery road surfaces.
