The Subaru Ascent is a versatile vehicle great for your daily commutes around the Doylestown, Philadelphia, and Warminster areas. However, it can also double as an adventure-ready vehicle, making your escapades even more thrilling. One way it does this is with its towing capability.

To let you know all about the 2019 Subaru Ascent towing capacity, the pros at Fred Beans Subaru wrote this helpful guide. Keep reading to see how it will elevate your travels with its optimal power.

2019 Ascent Towing Capability & Power

The Ascent generates some pretty serious power under its hood. It comes equipped with a 2.4L turbocharged SUBARU BOXER® engine that outputs 260 horsepower and 277 lb-ft of torque, greatly aiding in its towing ability.

Other helpful components are the Lineartronic® CVT (Continuously Variable Transmission) and standard Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive. These features provide amazing control of the vehicle and help equalize the power between the wheels making towing easy and safe.

In the standard trim of this model, you'll be able to tow up to 2,000 pounds with ease. This allows you to pull an ultra-lightweight watercraft, pop-up tent trailer, and even a small boat. However, in the other three trims, the towing capacity jumps to an impressive 5,000 pounds. This equals recreational boats, small RVs, and more to make your getaways the best.

Subaru Ascent Passenger & Cargo Space 

Along with the generous towing capacity, the 2019 Ascent's interior offers plenty of space inside for extra adventuring gear, luggage, and people. In its 153.5 cubic feet of passenger volume and three rows, you can seat up to eight comfortably.

Behind those rows, you'll be met with a cargo space that's perfect for holding smaller items while the seats are full. However, if you fold down the second row of seating, you will still seat five passengers easily and extend the cargo space to 47.5 cubic feet.

When all of the rows are folded down, you'll be met with 86.5 cubic feet of cargo space. This is ideal for transporting larger or longer items while still leaving the driver and front passenger seat available. Additionally, raised roof rails come standard on all trims, so you can pile up even more items outside of your vehicle!

Ascent Storage Options

The ways to pack in the Subaru Ascent are truly endless. From the load your towing behind the vehicle and items secured on the top to cargo space aplenty, you might be asking yourself what else? The Ascent also offers convenient storage options throughout the vehicle. Some of these include a cargo area underfloor storage tray for sensitive items and 18 cup and bottle holders.
