Subaru fans, today's your lucky day: the company has announced pricing for two of the stars in its lineup, the 2010 Legacy and the 2010 Outback.

The new Legacy starts at $19,995 and features a fairly broad range of powertrain packages. The base model is the 2.5i, available with both manual and automatic transmissions. Remote keyless entry and a few other perks come standard, but if you want the coveted iPod jack, it'll cost extra. Further up the chart, we find the Legacy 2.5GT Premium and Limited, featuring a Boxer engine with a turbocharger mounted underneath, which Subaru claims generates "30 percent quicker turbocharger response". The highest-end model--the 3.6R Limited--starts at $27,995. A full list of options and specs is available on the press release, which we've also pasted below.

The Outback will start a bit higher than the Legacy, at $22,995, with its own versions of the manual and automatic 2.5i. Standard equipment is, for lack of a better term, pretty standard, with the exception of Subaru's own "updated gauge cluster with 'eco' gauge". (Everybody wants to get into the act.) Of note: the six-cylinder Outback model, the 3.6R, clocks in at $27,995, which, as Subaru points out, is $4k less than last year's six-cylinder, and a nice bonus during These Economic Times.
