Was just talking to a SGT here and he mentioned his mom bought a new 2005 Outback wagon. I gave his mom props for getting the 5MT and said "wow thats the 2.5 turbo then also right?" and he said "No she didnt get the turbo".... I thought it was standard on the new 2005 Outback ????

Really wish Subaru would come through with their promise made publicly last year about having Turbo and AWD standard on every model.

Yep,

I saw a 2.5liter Outback, sans turbo. Looks like an outback with 15" wheels. Nice looking ride.

They never promised to have a turbo standard on every car. There's one available for every car except the Outback sedan, but they're not the standard engines.

Yes they did. It was during a press release at a big-wig car show. They said they would like to move twoard equiping all models standard with a turbo and a more luxary approach to designs. I know it doesnt mean that they will actually do it; wish they would however.
