Subaru Outback Motor Trend road trip – Click above to watch the video after the jump

Manufacturers can get pretty cocky when it comes to naming their products. We can say with near-certainty that a Chrysler Sebring never turned a tire in anger at the legendary Floridian track and that we'd be surprised if a Pontiac Le Mans ever went fender to fender in France. Motor Trend has set about putting the Subaru Outback up against its Australian namesake in a 30-minute long web special hosted by none other than Editor-in-Chief Angus MacKenzie. This isn't your typical man-against-nature flick, though. Instead, Motor Trend has gone about creating an in-depth travel video that would be right at home on the Discovery Channel.
MacKenzie and his crew seem to trek across Australia's wild bits with relative ease despite large mud holes and plenty of soft sand, and we're left to enjoy the vast scenery of one of our planet's most beautiful continents. The finished product is less about power figures and 0-60 times and more about the actual trip. It's well worth taking some time during your lunch break for a quick watch. Hit the jump to take a look for yourself.
