Subaru is reportedly planning to replace the new Liberty’s updated but ageing 3.6 litre six-cylinder engine with a smaller new unit when the range gets its first update.

While the new sixth-generation Liberty was revealed only this month, it is common for carmakers to begin work on update even before a new model has launched.

In the case of Subaru’s midsized family car, the major upgrade is reported to be a new 3.0 litre six-cylinder petrol unit.

According to US website Car & Driver, a “well-placed source” has confirmed the new engine, but details remain murky.

The source is understood to have confirmed higher outputs than the current 190kW/335Nm 3.6 engine, so we could see direct injection or turbo-charging added to the mix.

The report adds that the 2.0 litre turbocharged engine of the new WRX and the Forester XT will also migrate to the Liberty line, although a manual transmission is not expected to accompany it.

Reports elsewhere suggest that Subaru will round out the Liberty range with a new hybrid model, drawing either on the tech of the XV Crosstrek, or the hybridised all-wheel-drive system revealed last year.
