2022 Subaru Forester Wilderness vs 2022 Subaru Outback Wilderness

Serving Fairfax, VA

Subaru is rightfully known for producing capable SUVs loaded with exciting features, so your search for a new crossover SUV has naturally led you to the 2022 Forester and the 2022 Outback. These popular options are now available with a Wilderness trim level, which takes performance capabilities to a new level. What should you know about the Forester Wilderness and the Outback Wilderness before making a final selection?

Performance

The 2022 Subaru Forester Wilderness draws 182 horsepower from a 2.5-liter, four-cylinder engine. This equipment is paired with all-wheel drive and a continuously variable transmission. Unlike other Forester trim levels, it boasts higher ground clearance and has an optimized towing capacity of 3,000 pounds. The 2022 Subaru Outback Wilderness comes with a turbo 2.5-liter, four-cylinder engine that produces 260 horsepower. It has a continuously variable transmission, all-wheel drive with a low-ratio setting, and enhanced towing capabilities. In addition, it has a lifted suspension system.

Appearance

The Forester has premium styling with flat angles through the profile and a linear theme through the grille. The LED headlights have a dominant personality with a bolt-like shape. The fenders are rigorously defined, and the side doors have prominent accentuation with chrome elements through the lower portion of the panels. The Forester’s Wilderness trim level adds a roof rack, a matte black hood, a front skid plate, and all-terrain tires. The Outback, on the other hand, has stronger angles through the profile. The LED headlights are longer and taper into a point for emphasis. The wheel fenders and lower side panels have black molding. If you opt for the Outback Wilderness, your SUV will come with all-terrain tires, a front skid plate, copper accents, a revised bumper, fender flares, and an upgraded roof rack that can support 700 pounds.

Features

Both of these SUVs have one important interior feature that differentiates them from their other trim levels: their upholstery. In the Forester, the seats are covered with a water-resistant material. In the Outback, water-repellant simulated leather material is standard. These vehicles come with interior equipment like keyless entry, a sunroof, heated seats, a push-button engine starter, an auto climate control system, EyeSight driver’s aids, smart device integration, and more.
