For the 2008 Outback, Subaru drops the sedan, adds a tilt-and-telescopic steering wheel, upgrades the instrument panel, and updates the front and rear ends. Now the Subaru Outback comes only as a mid-size wagon with increased ground clearance and standard AWD. Subaru offers no less than 7 trims: base, 2.5i, 2.5i LL Bean, 2.5i Limited, 2.5i Limited LL Bean, XT Limited, and 3.0 R LL Bean. The 2.5i trims are powered by a 2.5L 4-cylinder engine with 175 hp and 169 lb-ft of torque. Base and 2.5i trims come with either a 5-speed manual transmission or a 4-speed automatic. 2.5i Limited and LL Bean trims have an automatic transmission only. The Outback XT Limited has a turbo-charged version of the 2.5L engine with 243 hp and 241 lb-ft of torque, available with 5-speed manual or automatic transmission. The luxury 3.0 R LL Bean features a 3.0L 6-cylinder engine with 245 hp and 215 lb-ft of torque.
The 2008 Subaru Legacy Outback is virtually the same vehicle as the Legacy wagon, but with a heavy-duty suspension, higher ground clearance for rough roads and deep snow, plus protective cladding and rugged styling cues. The Outback remains a compelling alternative to most sport-utility vehicles, with a low center of mass for safer handling and better maneuverability, while the interior is quite spacious and flexible to suit a small family.
For 2008, the Subaru Legacy Outback sedan has been dropped from the lineup. Otherwise, the Outback wagons get a modest redesign in front and back, along with some interior appearance and equipment changes.
Subaru's 2008 Outback is offered with three different engines, depending on the model. Base, 2.5 i, and 2.5 i Limited models get a 169-horsepower, 2.5L horizontally opposed four; the sporty 2.5 XT Limited gets a 243-horsepower, 2.5L turbocharged flat-four; and the 3.0 R L.L. Bean gets a smooth, 245-horsepower 3.0L flat-six.
