Subaru also gave a 100% match for to $250,000 in online donations to LLS — dollars that will fund medical research, patient advocacy, and other efforts to combat blood cancer.

“At Subaru, we believe all people should have the opportunity to live comfortable and healthy lives, and with our retailers we’re committed to spreading hope to blood cancer patients who are courageously living with cancer,” said Alan Bethke, Subaru of America’s senior vice president of marketing. “We hope our donations and messages offer warmth and hope to these brave patients and their families.”

2023 Subaru Outback Gets Refreshed Looks, New Tech

The Subaru Outback was already incredibly well equipped for adventure — and now it’s getting even better. For 2023, this widely beloved SUV wagon has been ungraded with an impressive list of features and design changes you’re sure to love.

On the outside, every 2023 Outback trim except for the Wilderness (which is already plenty bold) gets a strikingly rugged new front-end design with changes for the fascia, grille, LED headlights and fog lights, and front bumper cover. Meanwhile, the wheel arches boast a tougher look with expanded protective cladding.

To help you as you drive, the Outback’s EyeSight® Driver Assist Technology suite has been improved for the new model year. Updated software and an electric brake booster help this integrated system of safety features respond faster than ever to danger on the road. And on certain models, a new Automatic Emergency Steering feature integrates with the Pre-Collision Braking System to help prevent crashes.

The Outback’s available STARLINK 11.6-inch Multimedia Plus system has been upgraded for 2023 as well, boasting wireless Android Auto™ and Apple CarPlay®, a new Valet Mode feature, and much more.

In other changes, the Outback’s Onyx Edition trim is now available with a more efficient 2.5-liter SUBARU BOXER engine in addition to the more powerful 2.4-liter option that was offered for the previous model year. And at the top of the lineup, the Touring trim gets a new Wide-Angle Mono Camera with a broader field of vision that more effectively detects pedestrians and bicyclists.

The new 2023 Outback will be available soon, and you can learn more about it by contacting our team here at Gallatin Subaru in Bozeman, Montana.


Subaru Share the Love® Brings in $24.9 Million for Charity

2021 Subaru Crosstek | Bozeman,MT

The annual Subaru Share the Love® Event is a huge part of the automaker’s commitment to helping local communities like Bozeman, Montana. This past year’s event was a smashing success, bringing in $24.9 million for charities that do vital work across the United States.

Each year, Subaru Share the Love® raises money for charity in two major ways. First, whenever a new Subaru vehicle is sold or leased, Subaru of America donates $250 to a charity chosen by the customer. Meanwhile, individual retailers can also contribute a donation for each vehicle they sell.

Of the $24.9 million raised, close to $7.5 million went to Subaru national charity partners like the National Park Foundation, Meals on Wheels America, the ASPCA®, and Make-A-Wish®. Another $17.5 million went to nearly 800 local charities around the country.

“Each year, we are humbled by how the Subaru community shows love and care for those in need,” said Thomas J. Doll, Subaru of America’s president and CEO. “We thank our retailers and customers for making this event an incredible success and for helping us donate more than $227 million since 2008 to charities that matter to our community.”
