2023 Subaru Legacy Slaps Some Lipstick On, Sport Trim Gains 2.4L Turbo

Subaru has found the ugly stick and used it to beat the Legacy senseless. That’s the only conclusion we can come up with after gazing our eyes on the facelifted sedan as its “bolder look” certainly isn’t for everyone.

The changes are immediately apparent as the 2023 Legacy eschews a timeless design for something that commands attention. The updates are largely focused on the front end, which receives a massive grille that is flanked by new LED headlights. Further below, there’s a more aggressive bumper with a wide central intake and plasticky fog light surrounds.

Customers who want to stand out, can opt for the revised Sport trim. It’s distinguished by a red grille accent and magnetite gray metallic flourishes on the side mirrors and rear spoiler. The model also comes equipped with 18-inch alloy wheels that feature a gray finish.

  • Land Rover brings the 2023 Range Rover Sport into its third generation.

  • The 2023 Range Rover Sport features either a 3.0-liter I6 mild-hybrid powertrain, a 3.0-liter I6 plug-in hybrid, or a turbocharged 4.4-liter V8.

  • The 2023 Range Rover starts at $84,350.

On the heels of the new Range Rover, Land Rover is showing off its small sibling: the 2023 Range Rover Sport. It joins the Land Rover family as the third installment in the nameplate and replaces a quickly aging second-generation model. As you’d expect, the Range Rover Sport follows the larger Range Rover nearly in lockstep, with a similar design and an updated engine array. While this is generally good news, the updated Range Rover Sport does ax one of its coolest second-generation features.

If you’re wondering what’s missing, it’s under the hood. The 5.0-liter supercharged V8 won’t join the updated Range Rover Sport,

Breaking down Auburn’s Football Power Index ranking since 2005

Over the last two decades, Auburn Tiger fans have seen the ups and downs of their program. The highs were the 2010 BCS National Championship team and the lows were the 3-9 campaign that ended in the dismissal of Gene Chizik.

In the first year of the Gus Malzahn era, the team was battling for another national championship but came up short against the Florida State Seminoles. A new era began in 2021 with the dismissal of Malzahn and the hiring of former Boise State head coach Bryan Harsin.

In recent weeks ESPN published their updated Football Power Index (FPI) that measures team strength, based on 20,000 simulations as explained on their website.

This year the Tigers have the following preseason FPI ratings:

FPI: 13.9

Overall Ranking: No. 10

SEC Ranking: No. 3

Auburn Wire breaks down each final FPI dating back to 2005:

2005: 9-3
