The Subaru Outback is great on the roads, but it’s even better off the beaten track. Designed to cater to outdoors enthusiasts, the vehicle has a lot to offer to drivers who decide to go off the path well taken. Lousiana’s Bayou country offers numerous options to go on the dirt trail and bring your loved ones along for the ride.
Under the Hood
The Outback for 2015 does have a monster lurking beneath the hood. The 3.6R Limited version of the vehicle contains a 3.6-liter, six-cylinder engine wielding 256 horsepower. You can opt for a more modest 2.5i rig boasting a 2.5-liter four-cylinder packing 175 horses instead – and both versions are attached to continuous variable transmission. As mileage goes, the 3.6R Limited can range 22 miles per gallon in city or highway driving as opposed to the 2.5i’s 28mpg.
Subaru has delivered another winner in the 2015 Outback, as far as driver support is concerned. The EyeSight camera guidance system has been upgraded to better aid the vehicle’s adaptive cruise control. A new Rear Vehicle Detection System reduces the danger of traffic blind spots and also warns the driver against shifting lanes in fast traffic to prevent potential accidents.
If you’re taking some friends or family out for a spin in the woods, an Outback sourced through an established Baton Rouge Subaru dealer will do the trick. It’s the right time to start with something new.
