The entry-level 2008 Subaru Outback Basic trim comes equipped with a six-way manually adjustable driver's seat, power windows and door locks, a three-spoke steering wheel with cruise control buttons, cloth upholstery, and a keyless entry system. It also features a 100-watt six-speaker audio system and an in-dash CD player, an MP3 input jack, and capability for XM or Sirius satellite radio.
A 170-horsepower, 2.5-liter four-cylinder Subaru Boxer engine powers the Outback Basic. Subaru mounts the engine longitudinally on the chassis, which results in a lower center of gravity and better overall balance. The engine links to a standard fully synchronized five-speed manual transmission or an optional four-speed automatic transmission with Sportshift manual control.
Symmetrical all-wheel drive also comes standard on the Outback Basic. Trims equipped with the five-speed manual have continuous all-wheel drive, which features a viscous-type locking center differential to distribute power to the wheels with the most traction, while trims with the automatic transmission feature active all-wheel drive, which uses an electronically controlled variable transfer clutch to distribute power where traction is needed.
Adds to Basic:
No additional major features.

As it has in previous years, Subaru teamed up with outdoor outfitter L.L. Bean to create the 2008 Outback 2.5i L.L. Bean Edition, which comes equipped with such features as four-stage heated front seats, an eight-way power-adjustable driver's seat, a touch-screen GPS navigation system, and a removable L.L. Bean-embossed cargo-area tray. The 2.5i L.L. Bean Edition also includes a 100-watt six-speaker audio system with a six-disc in-dash CD changer, MP3 capability, and 3D audio enhancement.
A four-wheel independent heavy-duty raised suspension provides a firmer ride over rough terrain, while a Vehicle Dynamic Control system constantly monitors vehicle stability and automatically applies brakes and/or reduces engine power when it senses an impending emergency situation. Symmetrical all-wheel drive also comes standard on the Outback 2.5i L.L. Bean Edition.

The 2008 Subaru Outback 2.5 XT Limited packs a punch, thanks to its 243-horsepower, turbocharged Subaru Boxer engine, which sits longitudinally on the chassis, resulting in a lower center of gravity and better overall balance. The engine links to a standard fully synchronized five-speed manual transmission or an optional four-speed automatic transmission with Sportshift manual control.
With this extra horsepower, fuel mileage suffers, however. The EPA rates the 2.5 XT Limited at 18 miles per gallon in the city and 24 on the highway with either the manual or automatic transmission.
On the good news side, the 2.5 XT Limited comes equipped with a SI-DRIVE performance management system, which enables the driver to maximize engine performance by choosing from Intelligent, Sport, or Sport Sharp driving modes. The Intelligent mode improves fuel efficiency, while the Sport and Sport Sharp modes provide more dynamic driving experiences.
The Outback 2.5 XT Limited also comes equipped with leather-trimmed upholstery, heated and power-adjustable front seats, a leather-wrapped multi-function steering wheel, Sport-design electroluminescent lighting, and a 100-watt six-speaker audio system with a six-disc in-dash CD changer, MP3 capability, and 3D audio enhancement. Symmetrical all-wheel drive also comes standard on the Outback 2.5 XT Limited.

The best equipped (and most expensive) Outback trim available for 2008, the Outback 3.0 R L.L. Bean Edition, pumps up the power quotient with a 245-horsepower, six-cylinder Subaru Boxer engine. The engine sits longitudinally on the chassis, resulting in a lower center of gravity and better overall balance, and links to a five-speed adaptive electronic automatic transmission with Sportshift manual control.
Standard equipment includes the SI-DRIVE performance management system, which enables the driver to maximize engine performance by choosing from Intelligent, Sport, or Sport Sharp driving modes. The Intelligent mode improves fuel efficiency, while the Sport and Sport Sharp modes provide more dynamic driving experiences.
The 3.0 R also features a Vehicle Dynamic Control system, which constantly monitors vehicle stability and automatically applies brakes and/or reduces engine power when it senses an impending emergency situation. A four-wheel independent heavy-duty raised suspension and symmetrical all-wheel drive also come standard.
Interior features include heated and power-adjustable front seats, L.L.Bean-embossed two-tone leather-trimmed upholstery, a panoramic tilt/sliding dual-panel moonroof, a wood and leather-wrapped multifunction steering wheel, an L.L. Bean-embossed cargo-area tray, and sport-design electroluminescent lighting.
For entertainment, the 3.0 R L.L. Bean Edition comes equipped with a 100-watt six-speaker audio system with a six-disc in-dash CD changer, MP3 capability, and 3D audio enhancement.
