How Much Can the 2021 Subaru Ascent Tow?

The 2021 Subaru Ascent SUV has a max towing capacity of 5000 lbs on selected trim levels when equipped with the available Class III trailer hitch. The Subaru Ascent comes standard with a turbocharged Subaru Boxer engine producing 260 hp and 277 lb-ft of torque and standard Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive to help make towing a smooth and controlled experience.

Subaru Trailer Stability Assist

Additionally, the 2021 Subaru Ascent offers Trailer Stability Assist (TSA) on all trim levels as part of a suite of standard traction and stability features including Active Torque Vectoring, Vehicle Dynamics Control (VDC), and Subaru X-MODE®. The TSA system helps to maintain driver control by sensing unsafe yaw conditions, and then applying automatic braking to the correct wheels.
