Almost two weeks ago, Subaru released the first teaser photo of the new WRX, and although it is nothing official yet, rumors about the WRX and WRX STI engine are spreading.
Recent reports from Japan say that the model will be released early next summer, in about 11 months from today and, mechanically, is expected to wear the 2.4-liter boxer turbo engine (FA24) of Ascent and Outback, replacing the FA20F of the WRX and EJ257 of the WRX STI, available in America.
In the case of the WRX, the new engine is said to deliver 287 horsepower, with reports that it wants its STI version to deliver 350 horsepower, not the 400 horsepower previously heard, with torque reaching 497 Nm. The WRX is said to be mated to a CVT transmission, while the WRX STI with a 6-speed manual. Let me remind you, in its atmospheric version, the 2.4-liter boxer engine (FA24) is fitted to the new Subaru BRZ and Toyota GR 86.
