Subaru has released pricing on the all-new 2009 Subaru Forester (http://www.autoblog.com/tag/2009SubaruForester/) introduced last mont in Detroit (http://www.autoblog.com/2008/01/13/detroit-2008-09-subaru-forester-shows-its-us-face-in-detroit/) and it's a whopping $1,200 less than the price of the outgoing model. This means you can put a brand-new completely redesigned Forester 2.5X with standard all-wheel drive, curtain airbags and stability control in your driveway for $19,995 (plus destination and delivery, of course). At the other end of the spectrum, a 2.5XT Limited model starts at $28,195.


You have to salute Subaru's move. The new Forester is a very competent package in a competitive crossover SUV segment. Anyone shopping this category has good reason to take it for a spin, and the price drop is just icing on the cake. Check out Subaru's press release after the jump for a full breakdown of pricing by trim level.

That is a much nicer looking version of the forester. However it does tend to take away the uniqueness a little. Not as much as the 08 sti and rexs though.
