The updated 2023 Subaru Outback is here! The Outback is one of Subaru’s top selling models, trailing the Forester by only 100 vehicles sold in the US last year. It’s certainly the model most people think of when they think Subaru, becoming synonymous with the brand itself. The Outback was the first vehicle to be labeled a sport-utility wagon in the industry. It has lived up to that name with its high mileage capability, rugged performance, and overall versatility that can fit well into any lifestyle. It fits particularly well into active lifestyles that our customers here in Longmont, Colorado tend to live!
