The entry-level powertrain is a 182-horsepower, 2.5-liter, four-cylinder engine. It is accompanied by a continuously variable transmission and hill descent control. The 260-horsepower, turbo 2.4-liter, four-cylinder engine has the same transmission. Its all-wheel drive drivetrain is paired with additional driving modes for enhanced performance.

The 2022 Outback has confident styling with prominent accentuation from front to rear. The black, hexagonal grille features a chrome bar running across its top. The grille sits over a large, wraparound bumper with a skid plate. The prominent LED headlights have a teardrop-like quality. Black body molding, high ground clearance, and raised roof rails add to the Outback’s functionality.

It is intersected on the sides by T-shaped LED headlights.
