Came across this on Reddit and thought people here might be interested. Shows the current timeline for when a model is getting a full model change (FMC) or just a refresh (BMC)...though I can't figure out what BMC stands for. Looks like the Ascent is due in 2022. New STI finally in 2022.

That seems like an oxymoron? Big Model Change, as opposed to Full Model Change.
Here's the text as written

Quote
Subaru builds its "volume models," such as Forester and Outback, on a five year product cycle, which means they predictably introduce an all-new model every five years. In the fourth year of that cycle, they undertake a "BMC," a humorous acronym for Big Minor Change. This refresh usually includes cost-effective changes that keep the vehicle contemporary, such as suspension settings, bumper and taillight redesign, and infotainment upgrades.
