subaru to build three row crossover in indiana

The Tribeca having driven into the sunset, Subaru will build its replacement in Lafayette, Ind. beginning in 2018 as its fourth model assembled in the U.S.

The replacement is set to be an as-yet-unnamed three-row crossover with full third-row capability, which will join the Legacy, Outback and Impreza on the assembly line at Subaru of Indiana Automotive. The automaker says the crossover’s name will be in line with the other REI and L.L. Bean crowd favorites, Forester, Crosstrek, and the aforementioned Outback.

SIA itself is set to grow in the meantime, with production expected to hit 228,000 units this year, jumping to 394,000 when the Impreza sedan and five-door hit the line in 2016. Subaru is continuing to bust its own U.S. sales growth records, as well, aiming for over 550,000 by the end of 2015 for a seventh consecutive year of growth.
