Subaru's Outback-based Baja was part wagon, part truck.
The Subaru Baja was essentially a pickup version of the Outback wagon.
It only lasted four model years in the US and didn't sell very well, but it deserves to make a comeback.
The Baja had beefy styling cues like lots of body cladding, silver "sports bars" in the bed, and rally-style lights on the roof rack.
It was available with a 210-horsepower turbocharged four-cylinder engine, and you could even get it with a manual transmission.
The bed was pretty versatile with a tailgate extender, tie-down hooks and moldings that fit standard 2x4s.
A "Switchback" system allowed the back seats to fold down and expose an opening to the bed, extending the amount of storage space.
A new Baja could easily be created off of the current Outback, which is the biggest and best one yet.
We totally want the new one to have a hood scoop, though.
