The Standard Subaru Crosstrek Can Tow 1,500 Lbs

As previously indicated, the gearbox has been fine-tuned, and the new differential gear ratio further alters the Crosstrek's behavior on 

ground with little grip. But will these two improvements be sufficient to add 2,000 lbs to the towing capacity? The answer is no, of course

The gearbox oil cooler is the primary reason why the Crosstrek Wilderness will perform better

than a standard Crosstrek. Overheating is typically to blame for the bulk of a gearbox's wear

and tear. A vehicle's gearbox is under more strain the more weight it is pulling.
