For Dallas-Area Adventure, 2019 Subaru Outback is the High-Performance Choice

There are many reasons that the Subaru Outback has been a compact SUV of choice for camping enthusiasts, orienteers, and other lovers of the outdoors for more than two decades. "So have a lot of other crossovers," you may say. "But," our experts might reply, "Outback isn't like most other small SUVs." Why? Check out its capabilities here at Randall Noe Subaru, and you'll soon see.

Powerful SUBARU BOXER Engines

Take the Outback 2.5i lineup, for instance. It builds in a 2.5-liter SUBARU BOXER engine, ready to put out 175 horsepower with 174 pound-feet of torque. The bottom line: eager acceleration. Graduate to a model in the 3.6R line, however, and you gain some raw power, in the form of a 3.6-liter engine churning 256 horsepower backed by 247 pound-feet. Each is installed flat with the powertrain, versus in-line, too. That means both are more effective power delivery systems. That result, overall: you can tow up to 2,700 pounds, a rating which puts Outback in range of hauling an ATV, a dirt bike duo, an aluminum boat, or another small trailerful.

Sterling Efficiency Credentials

Pair either engine with the standard Lineartronic continuously variable transmission, and you'll find its use of fuel highly economical. Base models can achieve up to 25 mpg in cities like Mesquite and 32 mpg down highways to spots like Rockwall, TX, according to EPA estimation. 3.6R models aren't far behind. They can get up to 20 mpg in cities like Terrell and 27 mpg across the highway to Rockwall.

Unrivaled Capability

Subaru Symmetrical all-wheel drive comes standard. So does our automaker's exclusive X-MODE.

The former's a permanent AWD system, always on versus "part-time," and proactive with traction versus, like other electronic systems, "slip-then-grip." Plus, it's simpler by design, with fewer moving parts than other brands' systems. The takeaway: Subaru AWD can deliver power evenly to every wheel at once, giving the edge to those with grip. That's not to mention that it requires less and often less expensive upkeep.

The latter, on the other hand, reduces wheel slip. Bring standard Active Torque Vectoring into the mix for cornering precision. The verdict's clear: Outback offers balance other new SUVs can't match, with faster response and more dependable oversteer and understeer compensation, whether you're traversing hilly terrain, tacking through rain or across shallow water, or plowing through snowdrifts.
