Subaru’s Devilish Desert Racer Is Ready For Baja’s Big Day

Jun 3, 2019

Category: Rides

Subaru has spent the majority of its life in the racing circuit as a dominant rally car builder, best known for its winning portfolio on the world’s greatest outdoor courses. As a result, the company’s pedigree on (and off) of the blacktop has helped it to transition into the world of desert racing — proven further by the manufacturer’s competitive new Crosstrek Baja Racer.

The company’s refreshing off-road behemoth was built in cooperation with both Grabowski Brothers Racing and Crawford Performance — well-known tuners who have fostered a long history with Subaru’s extensive catalog of vehicles. A 2.5-liter, four-cylinder Boxer capable of 300 horsepower, a revised suspension system, and a menacing silhouette constitute the new Class 5 racer. As one of the only non-turbocharged platforms in the program, the vehicle has performed surprisingly well this season — promising a strong presence in the upcoming Baja 500. To pay homage to Subaru’s most popular campaigns from the World Rally circuit in the 1990s and early 2000s, the Crosstrek will sport the company’s iconic Subaru Racing Blue and Gold livery.
