2019 Crosstrek 2018 XT
Actually it shifts about 5900. And as a practical matter..the more accelerator pedal you give it the more gas. It would be almost impossible to get it to shift at 5600rpm WOT.I can't say I've been looking at the tachometer when I've floored it and gotten up there....
But why would it be awesome in the XT to push it to redline...? If peak hp and torque come in as below ....
... then what's the point of hitting redline...? Power drops off from those peaks so by going above 5600 rpm you gain nothing ..

If you owned one you would admit it is indeed "awesome"..lol
