Subaru’s WRX, the best-selling compact sedan in the U.S., will continue to be the only Subaru sedan to get the automaker’s continuously variable transmission, but the automakers new STI will get a new six-speed manual transmission.
(AP Photo/Koji Sasahara, File)The automaker has made the shift from a six-speeds to a six-, seven- and eight-speeder automatic to get a 6.0-liter, twin-turbocharged inline-four out of the WRX and STI.
It will also get a manual transmission for the redesigned 2017 WRX SUV.
The automakers STI, meanwhile, will get an all-new five-speed automatic transmission that will also be available in the redesigned 2019 WRX sedan.
The STI’s 6.2-liter turbocharged inline four-cylinder makes 425 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque.
It also gets a six electric motor to help generate torque and deliver a peak torque of 300 lb-force at 6,200 rpm.
That’s enough torque to lift a 1,500 pound sedan or SUV to a top speed of 174 mph.
The WRX’s 6-speed STI is based on Subaru’s previous six-cylinders, but this time the STI has six turbochargers, one for each cylinder.
It can achieve up to 550 horsepower at 6.3-liter power output.
It produces 365 lb-hp at 6500 rpm and 360 lb-lb-ft at 5,500 rpm.
The new STIs 6.5-liter engine delivers 385 horsepower at 5.8-liter.
The new six turbos will power the car at up to 500 horsepower at 8,500rpm.
Both the STIs are powered by a six cylinder turbocharger that produces 425 horsepower.
The STI also gets the 6.7-liter four cylinder turbo that makes 425 hp at 6200 rpm and 450 lb-wt at 5800 rpm.
It’s a big engine and it’s getting a lot of power, but it’s not the most powerful engine in the car.
