By BRUCE NEWTON
WITH the upgrade to 2001 model year (MY01) specification, the Forester GT picked up standard cruise control and a revised stereo system (now 2 DIN) with a six-disc in-dash CD player - as per the MY01 Impreza WRX. The dash surround for the stereo and HVAC controls is now finished in fake carbon fibre. Engine power has increased by 5kW to 130kW at 5600rpm, while peak torque is up by five Newton-metres to 245Nm at 4400rpm.
Did you know?Subaru's Forester GT is in the Guinness Book of World Records as the car used to set the record for the fastest time driving from the northern most tip of North America to the southern most point of South America. Nearly 24,000kms were covered in 18 days, 1 hour and 11 minutes in May 2001
