Subaru has chosen the upcoming Los Angeles Auto Show to introduce the new 2019 Ascent – its biggest SUV yet. The model was first previewed by a concept at the New York International Auto Show earlier this show, and is touted as the spiritual successor to the poorly-received Tribeca.

The Ascent will arrive as a three-row SUV, and will be built on the Subaru Global Platform. The concept measures 5,050 mm long, 1,989 mm wide, 1,839 mm tall and had 2,972 mm wheelbase, all of which should be closely emulated on the production model when it debuts.

Expect a turbocharged and direct-injected boxer engine to provide propulsion, coupled with the brand’s proprietary all-wheel drive system. The Ascent will be built in Lafayette, Indiana.

The accompanying teaser image doesn’t tell us a lot about the car’s final design, aside from it having an upright tailgate, a black rear bumper, and wraparound taillights featuring a C-shaped motif. There’s also a brushed aluminium boot lip guard and a small Ascent badge visible.
