LL Bean ???

I'm new to the world of Subaru and just bought an '07 Outback LL Bean with the H-6 motor. So, here's my question: Is the LL Bean a trim option only or does it include the H-6 motor? Is it available as a 2.5 ??? So far I'm very impressed with the smoothness and the performance. Any help will help satisfy my curiosity so I can sound like I know what I'm talking about.

I also have an 07 LL Bean H6. If I remember correctly, the Bean trim and the H6 were packaged together early in the model year. If you wanted one, you had to get the other. The 07 Bean model also included the 5-speed automatic and VTD/VDC systems. I think it essentially replaced several H6 models that were previously available in 2006 (the 3.0R, VDC, and LL Bean).
Halfway through the 2007 model year, they started selling an LL Bean model with the 2.5 four cylinder.
I've also been very happy with the H6 performance.

It's a limited edition trim option. When I bought my 08 it was available with both the 2.5i and as a flagship model paired with the 3.0R H6. What never made sense to me was that it included NAV with the 2.5i but not with the top of the line H6??

If you are lucky enough to be in the mountains...

I think Subaru offered the LL Beam trim in the Outback with the 2.5 for 08 and 09. You could also get that trim with the H6 for those years. The LL Beam trim only came with the H6 from 2000 to 2007, I think.
