Field Guide to Wasteland Vehicles: WarTrek

In spite of the Fury Road battle cry, “Shiny and chrome!” we don’t see very many new, shiny post-apoc rides.  2017 Subaru Crosstrek.  But, as the original “Will It Wasteland?” new car reviews showed, there are plenty of modern vehicles that would be right at home in a post-apocalyptic landscape, even if they don’t fit George Miller’s vision.  Wastelander K-Bomb is one of the brave souls to go Wasteland with a newer vehicle, in this case a 2017 Subaru Crosstrek.  The WarTrek, as it’s known, started life as a rallycross vehicle, and Subaru’s versatile all-wheel drive system and raised suspension.  The brilliant blue exterior makes this vehicle stand out just about anywhere, and it’s got some general modifications like a roof cargo basket and a front tow hook.  Of course it’s also bristling with thundersticks and spikes, and there are some Fallout-inspired stickers for good measure.
