If you love the idea of an adventure-ready wagon but need the all-weather capability of an SUV, take a close look at the 2006 Subaru Outback 2.5 XT. With Subaru’s highly regarded all-wheel-drive system, ample cargo room, and manual transmission, this Outback can get you and your gear to exciting places on-road or off.
Price does not include $399 dealer handling.
Under the hood lies Subaru’s 2.5-liter turbocharged “boxer” four-cylinder engine, churning out a lively 230 horsepower and 235 lb-ft of torque. The turbo boost gives the Outback excellent acceleration whether merging onto a highway or navigating a tight trail. And the five-speed manual transmission allows you to keep the engine in its optimal power band, essential for confident mountain driving.
Subaru’s symmetrical all-wheel-drive system actively transfers power to the wheels with the most grip, giving the Outback XT tenacious traction on slippery roads. Combined with 8.7 inches of ground clearance, this is one wagon that refuses to get left behind on poorly maintained trails. Yet the comfortable interior and smooth highway manners still make daily commutes a pleasure.
Inside, passengers will appreciate the available heated leather seats and panoramic moonroof creating an airy, upscale cabin environment. Nice touches like dual zone climate control and an in-dash navigation system make everyday use more convenient. And with the 60/40 split folding rear seats dropped flat, the Outback provides a cavernous cargo hold for camping gear, sports equipment, or home improvement projects.
This Outback still has plenty of adventure left thanks to Subaru’s reputation for longevity and the naturally aspirated engine’s durability. Proper care and maintenance will allow this all-wheel-drive wagon to confidently rack up many more miles of memories.
Few vehicles can match the Outback’s optimal blend of cargo capacity, foul weather traction, and leveled-up luxuries. The 2006 Outback 2.5 XT with manual transmission is an inspired choice for those who want SUV capabilities but appreciate a wagon’s dynamic driving feel. If you seek adventure and utility without compromise, this rare find deserves your serious consideration.
