I haven't seen other articles posted on here discussing the upcoming 2011 Impreza XV crossover, so I thought I'd post this from the Geneva Motor Show:

http://www.topspeed....xv-ar85802.html

http://www.caradvice...xv-geneva-2010/

I really hope the dual range 5-speed in the 2011 Impreza XV 2.0R model makes its way to the states! I wish the dual range 5-speed would be available with 2.0D Diesel engine, however according to the article above it will only be available with the 2.0R Turbo gas engine model. A 2.0D Impreza XV with a dual range 5-speed would be awesome to lift and turn into an even more capable off-road vehicle!

I doubt we'll get this dual range 5-speed in the US, but it would be cool.

Dual-range 5-speed manual transmission (2.0R MT model)
This transmission further improves the moderate yet brisk and solid shift feeling normally associated with a longitudinal layout while providing improved noise reduction and drive feeling. An auxiliary reduction gear with hi-low selection is a traditional feature of Subaru that preserves driving performance in steep up hills, towing and similar conditions.

I like reading the reply comments on the last link.....

Some bits might look nice on an STI. The rear "wing" for example might become a staple with the US show scene, who knows.

Is this a totally new 5 speed Dual Range?
Or still based on the old gearbox?

Okay, imo they need to take that technology, then put it in the 2004-2006 impreza body and you will have a very nice car. Why with the hatchbacks? Please revert back to sedans subaru!:rolleyes:

Well, at least the Subaru has a boxer-diesel and symmetrical AWD...

I'd LOVE to get that dual-range 5-speed manual in the USA. Hell, while they're at it, shoehorn it into the Forester, Outback, and Tribeca!

You can get dual ranges in a Forester.
What I would love is a bullet proof 6 speed with dual range lol :)

Which absolutely SUCKS!

If Subaru brought back the D/R in the EJ trannies I would probably wet myself.
I can't believe we are actually getting the Diesel.
If those are as easy to swap into the old gens as the EJ gas engines, then SIGN
ME UP!
I would be running on french fry grease and happiness.

In holland are the current:
Impreza: 1.5R, 2.0R, 2.0sport
Forester: 2.0 and 2.0 turbo
Legacy: none
So basically all 5m/t have a dual range and no diesel and no 6 speed.
This always have been like that. So should be able to import a gearbox :grin:
