Horsepower and torque, that is.

I see you haven't found the newbie forum yet.

Anyway, the Legacy Outback wagon has the new H6 which has more power than the H4, so it's already gottne more power, and I'm sure that the engine will make it's way down to the lower Legacy's soon enough.

bryanw: True - I'll agree that the 2000 Outback sedans do handle better than my Legacy (1995). The chassis is very stiff and it's sure-footed on curves. Body-roll is almost non-existant.

Don't get me wrong, the Outbacks are a tight rides. In my own opinion, it just feels really weird riding that high off the ground in a car. I don't think a "raised" suspension belongs on a car. Just imagine how well it would handle if that COG was just an inch or two lower!

Subaru had a Legacy Outback sedan with a H6 engine on display when I went to the NYC auto show on the last day.

Hey Danger, do you live in the Creditview/Eglinton or Rathburn area? I remember seeing a white wagon last summer with an exhaust I believe. I was on my mountain bike.

ya know, when i posted THREE MONTHS AGO that subaru had announced a prototype H6 VDC Outback SEDAN no one seemed to listen... hehe, until of course it appeared at the NY auto show...

anyway, it WILL come to the US for the next model year, but only in the outback sedan version and not the GT-L, which certainly sucks.. two-tone paint is ugly, and more power + a more advanced AWD system can't be that much more fun without a sport suspension

I love the two-tone paint on the Outback sedans. Have you seen any black/platinum Outbacks with gold accented rims (CLEAN black ones, that is)? That color combo is very sharp. White looks nice too, and it stays cleaner longer.

Production of the 3.0H6 Outback sedan has been confirmed for next model year - it's on Subaru's website under press releases. Heh heh, it's gonna zing with the extra torque and only 100 pounds of added weight.

Now if they could just put that engine in the Legacy GT, or at least get rid of the Outback's raised suspension (6+ inches of ground clearance!!!).

>>>get rid of the Outback's raised suspension (6+ inches of ground clearance!!!)

The Impreza has nearly 6 inches of ground clearance. The Outback has over 7. There's nothing wrong with ground clearance unless you're planning on driving 200 mph. Center of gravity is the issue and all Subaru's have very low COG's considering their ground clearance.

>>>Legacy Outback wagon has the new H6

Uh no, actually the Legacy Outback died in '99. It's now the Subaru Outback. Unfortunately, even after almost 2 years, the moronic Subaru dealers haven't even caught on!!! Getting really tired of Subaru dealers advertising 2001 Legacy Outbacks when they don't even exist.

Well, if they decide to turbo the GT, will it be a 2.5 liter or 2.0?

Most likely the 2.0 since they didn't turbo the current 2.5...

Maybe they will give us the SuperCharged EJ25 that they put in the prototype brat. That would be sweet.

The last time I spoke to the local SOA reps they said "no turbo GT". They don't want to undercut the WRX market, at least for a few years.

I am pretty sure they were talking about a H6 GT sedan though (auto of course....)
