3 Subaru Baja Pickups And A Justy - Which Do You Want In Your Garage This Year?
Subaru of America should ask Subaru Corporation to build a new 2024 Subaru Baja compact pickup for U.S. customers, but which model would be the best for urban and off-pavement adventures? The Japanese automaker could resurrect the Subaru Baja nameplate but could give it to four different Subaru models to add to its lineup. Which new Baja pickup would you want in your garage next year?
The all-new Subaru Baja pickup could feature the brand's core values of safety, fun-to-drive, all-wheel-drive, fuel-efficient, and a low center of gravity. Each of the three Baja pickups would be rugged and off-pavement ready.
Crosstrek Baja subcompact pickup - obw.adventures
Imagine an all-new 2024 Subaru Crosstrek Baja with a 2.4-liter turbocharged Boxer engine producing 260 horsepower. The more rugged Baja Wilderness trim could lead the segment with extra ground clearance, all-terrain tires, and underbody protection for off-road adventures.
Subaru's new dual-function X-Mode system would be a perfect fit and would be a big hit with customers with active lifestyles who want to go off-road and get further away.
Ascent Baja midsize pickup - obw.adventures
A mid-size 2024 Ascent-Baja pickup would be a great addition to Subaru's AWD lineup, and it wouldn't be hard for the automaker to design one. Like Baja, which used Subaru's wagon platform as the vehicle's starting point, Subaru could use the new Ascent SUV as the mid-size truck's launching platform. Cut off the back, make a few exterior design changes, and you've got a good-looking 4-door Subaru all-wheel-drive truck for Americans.
It could be manufactured alongside the new Ascent 3-Row family hauler in Lafayette, Indiana, with its new 2.4-liter direct-injection four-cylinder boxer engine for power. The Ascent-Baja would sit higher off the ground with at least 9.4-inches of ground clearance and could also be offered as a Sport trim with a raised suspension.
Crosstrek Baja 2-Door subcompact pickup - obw.adventures
For the urban commuter, there is the 2024 2-Door Crosstrek Baja subcompact pickup for customers. It's small, maneuverable, and can handle minor hauling duties and trips to the beach on the weekend. It's fuel-efficient and comes with the 2.0-liter Boxer engine.
Justy Wilderness Edition - obw.adventures
Subaru could also resurrect the Justy compact and offer the new 2024 Subaru Justy Wilderness Edition subcompact SUV. This hot four-door rugged model would easily fit in your garage and be highly maneuverable on the trial. The short wheelbase allows for easy parking and for getting through tight spots when you get deep into the mountains and away from the city.
It's time for Subaru of America to offer an all-new 2024 Subaru Baja Sport Activity Vehicle for its customers in North America and dive into the untapped compact pickup market.
