2005 Subaru Baja Overview

Adding a pickup to a crossover would get you something close to the 2005 Subaru Baja, a compact all-wheel drive pickup based on a Legacy platform -- in this case, an open bed replaces the enclosed cargo area. There are few changes to the 2005 Baja. It gets another power outlet in the center console, and the Turbo options add on a hard cover for the bed.
There are two trims in the Baja lineup. The Sport features a 2.5-liter, 165-hp flat-4 engine, and the Turbo has a turbocharged version at 210-hp. Both are standard with a 5-speed manual or optional 4-speed automatic. The four-door pickup comes standard with ABS brakes, dual front airbags, roof rails, a sunroof, power features, and keyless entry. On the Turbo, you can get extras like heated leather seats and a power driver's seat. Rear seats can be folded and configured to allow more cargo space. The bed is only 3 feet long, but an optional extension increases that to 5 feet.
The 2005 Baja is aimed at youthful outdoorsy types interested in active sports, camping, or just cruising the back roads. Owners say the AWD is outstanding in snow or sand, and the turbo engine is peppy and fast. Handling and cornering are tight, much easier than an actual pickup truck. Complaints mention the lack of options, severely limited rear legroom, and a noticeable response lag when shifting into first gear.
