2020 Subaru Legacy and Outback pricing announced - Autoblog

Pricing for the 2020 Subaru Legacy sedan and Outback crossover are now available. Both models were completely redesigned for the model year, but base prices have barely gone up. The 2020 Subaru Legacy starts at $23,645, just $215 more than the old model. The 2020 Subaru Outback now starts at $27,655, which is $335 more than the 2019 Outback. Price differences vary depending on trims, but for the 2.5-liter 4-cylinder models, the prices have only gone up a few hundred dollars. You can see the breakdown of Legacy prices below, and the Outback prices below the next paragraph. As for the turbocharged models, the price increase is quite a bit more compared with equivalent 3.6R 6-cylinder examples from 2019. The cheapest turbocharged Legacy is $35,095, which is $2,665 more than its flat-six predecessor. With the Outback, you can technically get a turbo model for less than the cheapest 2019 six-cylinder model. It starts at $35,905, whereas the entry-level 6-cylinder Outback for 2019 started at $35,970. But keeping trims matched up, the same trim turbo model is $38,755, an increase of $2,785. Regardless of Legacy or Outback trim, buyers will get more power and torque. The base 2.5-liter inline-4 makes 182 horsepower and 176 pound-feet of torque, up from 175 and 174, respectively. The turbo engine makes 260 horsepower versus 256 from the old 6-cylinder, and 277 pound-feet of torque instead of 247. Both vehicles are completely redesigned boasting lighter, stiffer chassis and a much nicer interior with a massive center touchscreen available.

Fujifilm GFX100 Medium Format Mirrorless Camera Announced

Several years ago, Fujifilm decided to dive into the medium format camera market by launching the Fujifilm GFX 50S. The company has since released new models and successors since, but this could possibly be the company’s biggest update to yet. Fujifilm has announced a new mirrorless camera in the form of the GFX100.

This will be part of the GFX medium format lineup (although we’re not sure if this will replace the GFX 50 series or it will exist alongside it), but it will be a camera with a whopping 102MP sensor.

To further celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Z sports car, the 2020 Nissan 370Z got a 50th Anniversary Edition model featuring a two-tone color scheme evoking BRE race cars of the early 1970s. It certainly looks stylish, but you'll pay for the looks. Specifically, you'll pay $37,315, an extra $2,600 on top of the 370Z Sport's unchanged base price of $34,715.

Besides the badging and fancy livery, the 50th Anniversary Z doesn't bring much else aside from some Alcantara and faux suede details, contrast stitching, more badging and power heated seats inside. In fact, it actually removes the front and rear spoilers that come standard with the 370Z Sport, so you actually lose some parts. So this package is really for people that are head over heels for the design.
