Default What Happened!!

Do a search on the net (Google) for the Subaru ST-X..........you will find that it is the the BAJA......but look closely when you do the search for the ST-X is says that is should have come with a SUPERCHARDED 2.5L engine.............~230Hp

I dream of supercharging my baby. It never happened..........GRRRRR

Subaru ST-X
What's special about it?
The ST-X is a new type of crossover vehicle that blends the versatility of a four-door pickup truck with the performance and comfort of a sedan. Designed in the United States, the four-passenger ST-X (Subaru Truck X-perimental) promises utility, performance and fun. The 55.5-inch cargo bed can be extended to 76 inches. But rather than adding length via a dropped tailgate, the ST-X features a power-retractable rear window that lowers completely into the rear seatback. The rear headrests, which pivot down from the roof, fold up and out of the way. The seat cushion folds up and forward, its bottom forming the new rear wall of the cargo bed. The seatback then folds down to form a flat cargo floor. Power comes from a supercharged version of the 2.5-liter engine found in the Subaru Legacy. It develops 230 horsepower. Like all Subaru models sold in North America, the ST-X features all-wheel drive. It also has a dual-range five-speed transmission and 8.5 inches of ground clearance.

i think the supercharged bit only appeared in the show car and didn't make it to production.

my personal biased opinion is that the baja is a total waste of development money... money that could have gone into, say... a north american version of the legacy gt-b twin turbo?

I saw one at Specialty today. Black in showroom and yellow one otuside. Actually, it isnt as BAD as it looks. *puts on flame suit* I think its targetted towards females though because its "cute". The cargo space at the back is limited though. The leather looks great and best of all....SUNROOF! I wouldn't be able to spend $35,000 on it, but I knwo some people will.

This is just like the GC8 2.5RS show car that came out in 1999 prior to the sale of the 1999 US models w/ the V5 bumper.. the 2.5RX. Turbocharged 2.5L with 17" 5 spoke Enkei wheels, 22B vents and some other goodies.

It's too bad we don't get the goodies.. but I guess they call it a showcar for a reason.. doing promos..

2.5RX (Picture too big to post)

I think this was the same car that was on MotorWeek.. not sure tho..

The black one does look better than the yellow. However, if i need a flat bed, I'll go buy a Dodge truck or something. Otherwise, I'll get a wagon. At least my cargo won't get wet.
