Both of these vehicles are powered by a standard four-cylinder SUBARU BOXER® engine.

However, the available engines in each model are very different. The 2019 Subaru Outback can be outfitted with a six-cylinder SUBARU BOXER® engine that generates an impressive 256 horsepower and 247 pound-feet of torque, giving it plenty of power! The 2019 Subaru Crosstrek, on the other hand, has a limited-availability plug-in Hybrid model available for impressive fuel economy.
