Subaru is ready to bring back its famous pickup truck. The 2020 Subaru Baja Pickup Truck will hit the roads once again, probably by the end of 2019. Baja model will be based on the Ascent model, while most of the styling cues are taken from the Viziv concept model.
Once a four-door model, Baja Pickup Truck will offer four passenger seats, great handling and great versatility as before. Now, the 2020 Baja will arrive with larger dimensions and more attractive appearance than its predecessor. The performance will be great and the all-wheel-drive configuration is in the offer as an option.
2020 Subaru Baja Pickup Truck exterior
The 2020 Subaru Baja Pickup Truck will follow the same path as the Viziv model. Those two will share a lot in between, and moreover, Baja Pickup will be based on the Ascent model. We don’t know what to expect from this project, however, the exterior will look a lot better than the previous Baja model. Unlike its predecessor, the 2020 Baja will arrive with larger dimensions, more modern exterior styling, and more aggressive appearance.
With that in mind, Baja pickup is about 15 inches longer than the Ascent SUV. Furthermore, the front end looks as sporty as Ascent. The headlights are beautiful and the front grille is very attractive. The rear end sports a long bed and the rear design looks clean. We will wait for more specific details as we expect plenty of special features and off-road equipment.
2020 Subaru Baja Pickup Truck interior review
The interior of the forthcoming 2020 Subaru Baja Pickup Truck will look a lot similar to the Subaru Outback SUV model. Plenty of modern and upscale features are included, however, there will be four seats available. The materials inside the cabin are surprisingly good for a pickup and safety rating is great.
The center console is exactly the same as in Outback and the layout of the buttons is very similar. Practicality and versatility all over the cabin and the comfort is great. We don’t know yet if there will be some cool stuff in the offer, such as interior color schemes or latest phone integration systems. What we do know is that the navigation will be standard and the infotainment system will come with the new 6.5-inch touchscreen. Moreover, we expect at least three trim levels, so more luxury could be on the cards.

The upcoming 2020 Subaru Baja Pickup Truck offers a single drivetrain and it is a 2.4-liter four-cylinder unit. This efficient engine can produce up to 300 HP, and the torque numbers are yet to be announced. Moreover, a diesel engine should become available as an optional unit. The base engine offers an all-wheel-drive setup that is optional, just like the optional CVT automatic transmission.
Furthermore, the towing capacity will be around 5,000 pounds, more or less. A hybrid variant could happen in the future, just like the Subaru Outback got its hybrid drivetrain.
