Subaru's new version of the Forester, the XT, is now official. It gets the powerful turbocharged 2.5 boxer engine, which produces 210 horsepower and, more importantly, 235 lb-ft of torque. The engine is like the 300 horsepower 2.5T in the WRX STi, but is tuned for SUV power delivery.

This Forester should be quite the fast compact SUV.

Edmunds look with some pictures. Looks like a regular Forester with a hood scoop and a bigger tailpipe:

Pity that it only has dual-chamber head-protection airbags for the front, no side curtains. Also a pity that it doesn't have VDC, Subaru's version of stability control.

Any thoughts about the 2005 Turbo Baja?
