Not sure I'd overland in thet ^^^ but they are amazing cars.
We looked at the Outback but saved the money and settled on the Legacy 3.6R.

First heavy winter snowfall. Brand new winter grips. Sunday, 6am. Turn onto main street. 6" of fresh snow.
PIN IT !! Zero wheelspin but suck you into the seat acceleration.
2 short blocks later, look at the speedo.... 80mph.

Amazing drivers cars. It was nothing to drive 1000 miles a day.
I love the colour of yer Outback too.

Very cool name too, not a GT or a TRD but a 3.6 Arrrgh.

My first Subaru was a 2009 Legacy GT Spec_B. It was awesome & a great car, but made for the street. After that I had an 2011 Impreza 5-door, then a 2017 Outback 2.5i & now a 2019 Outback 3.6R.

W/ the 2” lift, 29.5” AT tires, Bilstein Shocks/Struts, RalliTek springs in the front, King springs on the rear, upgraded sway bars, Primitive skid plates, Rally Innovations bull bar & Thule crossbars and roof basket - it makes a pretty beast of a machine for a daily driver/overlander. It has just under 14” of ground clearance. For daily driving, it is the Touring model so it has all the nice bells & whistles like the high end leather seats, EyeSight driver assist stuff, big infotainment screen, quiet cabin, etc. For overlanding, the symmetrical AWD is great, but it also has X-Mode which is Subaru’s own version of a simulated low-range, hill ascent/descent control, active torque vectoring, a ton of storage space, no problem towing my boat when needed, the boxer engine keeps a low center of gravity & it has a great turning radius. All-in-all it is a pretty awesome overland machine.

Don’t underestimate the ‘Roo. I considered several different rigs, but after owning 3 other Subaru’s & reading the story of the dude who conquered Moab in a lightly modified Legacy a few years ago, I knew the Outback could be built into a rig for getting me around my stomping grounds of Appalachia w/o a problem. I just passed 6k miles on the odometer & I’ve put it through a lot of trails w/o a problem coming up yet.

For reference, here is an article about the guy tackling Moab in his Legacy.
