According to Automotive News, Subaru is set to release a new, more fuel-efficient version of its boxer four-cylinder engine. The powerplant should be available in both 2.0-liter and 2.5-liter configurations and will be able to offer up a 10-percent boost in fuel economy over its predecessors. The report doesn't detail exactly how the engine goes about gaining its new found efficiency, but it does say the changes are the first significant revision of the company's boxer architecture in two decades.
A Fuji Heavy Industries spokesperson confirmed that the new powerplant is coming, but wouldn't go so far as to say which models would benefit from the new tech. Automotive News reports that other sources claim that the thrifty four-pot will first show up in the Forester both in the U.S. and Japan, paired with a CVT gearbox. The new engine will then begin to crop up in models like the Legacy and Impreza here in the States and the Exiga minivan on Subaru's home turf.

So what does this mean? 2011 WRX's and Forrester's now have the improved power plants?
Personally, I'd rather buy a car with an engine who has been around in development for a few years to work out the kinks. Remember the problem with the 09's?
The more technical it is the less I want to be an early adopter and beta test!

There were rumors a year or two back about them working on a direct injection system. Maybe it will be one of those "upgrades" everyone can make to their older systems. I for one am going to see what they come up with and possibly use the new system when I do my engine build next year.

Subaru makes a Diesel Impreza for the EU market, but it's styled like the Outback is in the North America market.
At best we'll get the Subaru equivalent to the Jetta TDI Cup http://www.autoblog.com/2010/06/15/2...di-cup-review/
If Subaru does produce something like that for the NA market, it's not going to be named WRX or STI.
