After more than 15 years in isolation, the all-new 2022 Subaru Baja Pickup Truck will be once more available for the U.S. market. This legendary pickup truck was ended its production in 2006, and back then, it was very popular. Unfortunately, officials didn’t yet confirm the comeback of this truck, but the latest gossips resurrected this model. Many believe that the comeback of this truck will happen next year.
In a time when the pickup truck market is more popular than ever, many of the forgotten models are revived. Moreover, according to renderings, the new Subaru Baja Pickup Truck will look almost identical to the Viziv concept, at least as far as the front fascia is concerned.
2022 Subaru Baja Pickup Truck Exterior
The Viziv concept will be an inspiration to the new 2022 Subaru Baja Pickup Truck. According to reliable reports, the Subaru Baja Pickup Truck will look no less attractive than the mentioned model. In any case, we should expect almost identical front fascia, wheels, grille, headlights, and taillights. Of course, Subaru will use a proven recipe to make this pickup truck unique and relatively modern.
On the other side, some reports suggest that it could come with a more truck-ish approach. The new Subaru Baja Pickup Truck will most likely to use a unibody platform, similar to the Honda Ridgeline.
2022 Subaru Baja Pickup Truck Interior
On the inside, the new 2022 Subaru Baja Pickup Truck will most likely borrow many parts from the Outback model. The cabin should be relatively roomy, featuring many SUV elements rather than a pickup truck. In general, expect a very comfortable seat and ample passenger space.
The base model will be available with the Outback’s 7-inch screen to control infotainment and climate functions, while a larger 11.6-inch high-resolution touchscreen is available on upper trims. Subaru will, of course, provide a plethora of premium materials, including leather upholstery and much more optional amenities.
The upcoming Subaru Baja Pickup Truck will undoubtedly use some of the existing engines from the gathered information. However, the most likely outcome is a 3.6-liter V6 engine capable of producing 256 horsepower and 275 lb-ft of torque.
Besides this engine, there is also one more candidate. It should be a 2.4-liter turbo-four engine, making at least 300 horsepower. In addition, Subaru will be most likely to connect these engines with an eider a six-speed manual or automatic transmission. Unfortunately, at this point, there is no info about hybrid or all-electric options.
2022 Subaru Baja Pickup Truck Release Date, Price
We expect the new Baja Pickup Truck to be introduced later in the year, while sales may happen sometime in 2022. However, as we said, Subaru didn’t confirm this model yet officially, so we remain doubtful about its return.
On the other hand, if it happens in the following year, expect the new pickup truck to cost at least $30,000. Generally speaking, there are plenty of good trucks available for such money, and we cannot wait to see Subaru’s final product. The closest rivals of the Baja pickup truck are models like Ford Ranger, Toyota Tacoma, Hyundai Santa Cruz, and the latest Chevrolet Silverado.
