Report: Subaru is the third most popular brand in America to take off-road

Usually when you think of off-roading, you’d imagine doing it in something like a Jeep, Land Rover, Toyota, Nissan, or even something from General Motors or Ford. And that’s because all those brands produce formidable pickup trucks or SUVs that are very capable of handling their own when the pavement just ceases to exist.

But in a recent study by J.D. Power, discovered by AutoBlog, Subaru is the third most popular brand in America to indulge in off-road adventures. According to the study conducted in 2013, Subarus are some of the most commonly used cars off-road. Sure, you won’t find a WRX STI rock crawling, though don’t forget, the term “off-road” can be rather ambiguous, including dirt roads and trails that could be traversed in a Toyota Camry. The statistics go as follows: almost 29.5 percent of Subarus sold in America are used on trails and dirt roads, trailing behind the Ram and Jeep brands, with 30.2 and 31 percent use off-road.

And interestingly enough, some of the aforementioned brands like GMC, Ford, Chevrolet, and Land Rover, come in at less than 20 percent. Talk about a waste on the Land Rover part…
