While I am waiting for a buyer of my truck, I have been researching my options for a new vehicle. The 2014 Forester not only looks like a possible option, I cant help but think that the NA 2.0 will replace the 2.5i and the 2.0T to replace the 3.6r.

Do you think buying a 2013 Outback would be a mistake? Is the 2.0 the new and better option of engines? I don't know enough about the 2.5i and 3.6r to know if they have run their course and on the way out or are 2.5i and 3.6r Subaru's version of the Chevy 350 that will be around for another 10+ years?

I understand that most people will not know for sure so I am open to speculation and SWAG's (systematic wild a$$ Guess).

How about a 2.5 direct injection engine paired to an F1 style KERS system? Is the Subaru drive train a good match for such a system? You would get all of the benefits of a 4 cylinder, plus the ability to boost launches to make the 0 - 60 crowd smile.
