I found the Baja quite sluggish with the base 2.5na engine. Consider the turbo, especially if you will be actually carrying anything in the bed.

My friend, the Baja is a "truck" not a car. It is the best looking truck around (that's coz I have one )

The Baja feels soft in comparison to the rest of the Subaru range... but it still handles well.

handles better then my S10 hehe, main reason im after the turbo is im used to the kick of the 4.3 vortec in my current truck and i figure the turbo will have that kick and more in the 5spd model.
