      What a waist of time. They didn't put snow tires on the Subaru??? So now we know that snow tires work better in snow than street tires. Who would have thunk?

      "The truck does all the thinking for me. " Hopefully it will film in the future too, maybe it'll be better. Oh snap.

      Had hoped for a test with
      - identical tires
      - similar ground clearance
      - comparable drivetrain
      - comparable transmission type
      - comparable differential
      - if one has a controllable center lock differential, no point in comparing
      - similar pricing (especially this point here)

      Older Subarus also had low and high gear, but if you're going to compare, if you enable traction control on one, do the same on the other. Know how to work the vehicle's systems and what they're for.

      This was a totally pointless test with a totally predictable outcome from the start, with one exception.

      I absolutely would LOVE the auto chain deploy feature a bus on my car!!!!!!!! That is BRILLIANT.

      Next comparison: M1 Abrams vs Ford river and dune traversal and horse versus cat tree climbing..

      Seriously? Missed opportunity.

      So, evidently Subaru should be putting the aggressive tyres on as standard so that in comparisons like these, it has a chance of keeping up with the Raptor. It may never drop below freezing where I live but I may never know when I need to drag race a raptor in the snow. Forget the fact that the tyres on the Subaru are more about economy, longevity, handling and traction in a life that will be most likely on bitumen.

      Where are the dead animal body's? Or did you cut them out to make it child friendly?

      If this comes up on the search for "Subaru vs Wolf" and theres no wolf in here, that means you cut out all the dead wolf carcasses you hit

      Toyo tires are accepted as snow-capable in Colorado, and they aren't very expensive either. There's no excuse for testing the Subaru in snow with the stock tires.

      watching from France. This test is a complete non-sense. There are millions of Subaru in Switzerland and USA because they are very good on snow. Healthy Subaru with very good snow tire is hard to beat. Raptor may be well but so much weight it is gone be an immense issues when snow gets icy. However journalists dont know that fresh snow is fresh one one day then it changes to either ice or mash. Raptor is out of price this should not be ignored. Compare a Raptor to a WRX Sti in snow configuration (+/- same price as Raptor) would have be more just. This snow-Subaru STI will beat the crap out if not the hell out of the Raptor on snow. Storm or no storm, on road. If you get out of the road Raptor will be better for sure. Or you could have taken a nice subaru with spike tires. Will beat the crap out almost any car on the road. Spike tires too expensive?Come on, how much gas do you need to make this Raptor go forth?

      I know this is a older video but on many forums people are talking about 4A killing transfer cases. Not the case but you know what I mean.

      Such a ridiculous comparison. Mid-size SUV vs full size V8 truck, definitely fair!

      As someone who has owned two Subarus, I am fully confident they can handle the majority of conditions. I've taken an old Forester through mountain winters in negative 20 temperatures, on unplowed snowy and icy roads and it got me to my destination without even barely struggling, and that was on all-seasons as well. I feel like these comparisons always paint Subaru in a bad light, but it's an unfair comparison to begin with. Yeah, you're not going to be ripping around in the snow like a maniac and stopping immediately like a giant truck would. But, the important question, WHO DRIVES LIKE THAT IN BAD WEATHER TO BEGIN WITH? If you do, you shouldn't drive. Subarus aren't invincible, they're not the best thing ever, I've had other cars, but in the case of bad weather, I trust Subaru every time.

      5:27 That sums up the entire video: β€œIt is all about tires.” The rest of the video is for entertaining people who have no clue.

      That red is absolute the best color for a winter jacket. It looks like a highlighter out there. Why in the world did I ever buy jackets in shades of grey for the winter?

      The Subie is lighter and it has its differentials hidden high in the chassis. This and the superior AWD system makes it great in the snow. If it is equipped with proper tires, it is nearly impossible

      I got aggressive winter tires then I had them studded for my Subaru. Even in deep snow (I wont lift my car because that's stupid looking) and I've never had a problem in Montana.

      Haha and you guys wonder why Subaru stopped helping you guys out! Making such an egregious comparison. My three year old nephew could tell you why this comparison is shit. Pathetic.

      Any winter environment needs winter tires. I like your videos and I understand what these guys are doing comparing stock to stock. But I know the ford truck with all terrain tires will do better than the outback but the outback would do way way way better with winter tires on it. Live the raptor though. What a beauty truck.

      I would've considered a Raptor vs lifted 3.6R outback more of a fair challenge. The 2.5 is gutless.

      Enjoyed the tech explanations. My experience with 3 Outbacks (company cars) 300,000 miles over 8 years driving in ND, SD, WI, MN is that they are horrible in the wind driving on snow covered and ice covered Interstate. Take the wind out of equation and with the right tires the Outback rocks.

      How do you get your son to be just as wrong and corrupt as you are? You openly admit you don't have proper tires for the Subaru for this test but you did it anyway. Hope Tommy didn't major in journalism in school. The only redeeming part of this video was that couple was snowed it. All else, fake. This is why many of us unsubscribed you.
