The long-anticipated replacement for the largely unloved Subaru Tribeca will begin rolling off the assembly line in 2018, the Japanese maker is confirming.
And given that the U.S. is likely to be the largest market for the new crossover-utility vehicle, it will be assembled at the Subaru of Indiana Automotive plant that was originally set up as part of a joint venture with Isuzu. The new model will become the fourth product line Subaru produces in the U.S.
“We are delighted to be bringing even more Subaru manufacturing to the U.S. The new model will also result in increased investment at SIA and at several of our suppliers across the country,” said Tom Easterday executive vice president, secretary for the facility, also known as SIA.
