Hard to replace a vehicle like these as most of the vehicle's competitors are also running CVT's. What did you replace it with?I am a huge Subaru fan and have owned 6 since the late 80's and travelled extensively in each , below is the last one I had and we clocked up thousands of outback K's ,no mods and no issues. But I am not sold on the CVT and so have moved away from the brand.

I did go to a mid sized truck ( Navara/Frontier for our US mates) for a while, never having had one, capable and had a lot of fun with it. but I realised I am a wagon guy so my current ride is a Toyota Fortuner a mid sized SUV based on the Hilux. sort of our version of the 4runner (again explanation as i don't think the US gets this model). 2.8 diesel with a 6 speed conventional auto. a bit bigger and more truck like than a Subie but after a year of ownership i kinda like it.Hard to replace a vehicle like these as most of the vehicle's competitors are also running CVT's.

Lots of competitors are not using CVTs. Even some who own Jatco the maker of many of the CVTs used today are moving away from them. I am looking at you Nissan. The new pathfinder does NOT have a CVT anymore. Even Nissan knows that its a crap technology for automotive use.Hard to replace a vehicle like these as most of the vehicle's competitors are also running CVT's. What did you replace it with?
There's a few people I've seen that are brave enough to regularly offroad a Porsche Cayenne. Looks amazing! Unfortunately we have been denied the Bronco Sport's in Australia..If you're in a place financially that you would consider a Porsche Cayenne for overlanding, I would say to consider the new Bronco sport. You can get a base model for the price of an almost 10 year old Porsche (about $25,000 per my brief searching) and the top Badlands trim is only a few thousand more, and you get the advantages of it being new. Being a Ford, the parts will be a lot cheaper and there's bound to be a good aftermarket for it within the next couple of years. Also used Porsches aren't known for their reliability. Say what you want about Ford, it almost certainly won't be in the shop as often as an old Porsche and will cost less than half as much when it is.
