Okay, sure. This is a crossover and not something many people consider an overland vehicle. However, more and more people are starting to use Outbacks and Foresters for building out a vehicle capable of getting beyond where the paved road can take them. It makes sense. Subarus are affordable, reliable, and have a great all-wheel-drive system. The Ascent has an all-new Direct-Injection Turbocharged SUBARU BOXER® engine that delivers 260 hp and 277 lb.-ft. of torque. In terms of off-road performance, it has 8.7 inches of ground clearance, X-MODE for getting maximum traction, and Hill Descent Control.
