2022 Subaru Outback WildernessApr 13rd, 2021
More capability. Increased versatility. Bigger adventures. These are just some of the ways to describe the all-new 2022 Subaru Outback Wilderness due to arrive in summer 2021. The Outback is the first of the Subaru lineup to receive the Wilderness treatment with plans for more models to follow.
The Outback has always been known as the reliable, capable, family hauler and Subaru has turned that capability up a notch with a number of trim exclusive features to gain the attention of those looking for an even more rugged adventurer.
Powering this off-road vehicle is a turbocharged 2.4L 260hp SUBARU BOXER® engine that provides robust power, smooth torque, and a shorter-ratio Lineartronic® CVT with transfer and rear differential gearing for optimal off-road performance. Subaru’s legendary Symmetrical Full-Time All-Wheel Drive with new Dual-Function X-MODE® comes standard to take on any terrain or condition. The traditional all-season tires have been swapped for black 17” all-terrain tires to provide superior traction and appearance on and off-road.
To compete with other off-roading SUV competitors, the Outback Wilderness has a raised suspension with 241mm ground clearance, durable body cladding, and metal skid plates underneath to protect the body from sharp rocks, edges, and debris. The front and rear bumpers feature four tow hook points so it’s easy to attach a tow rope should it be required during your travels.
Although the interior is meant to withstand more rugged conditions, this Outback certainly doesn’t lack any interior features that make driving this vehicle a joy. Subaru’s large 11.6” tablet-style infotainment system makes up the center dash with standard Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™. SUBARU STARLINK® Connected Services offer superior convenience, connectivity, and security to provide you with peace of mind for every drive or even when you’re away from your vehicle.
