Subaru Outback Wilderness Edition

Bold Capability for Next Level Adventure

It’s time to get outside. Time to go deeper into the forest, higher up that mountain and further off the beaten path than ever before. This is where the all-new 2022 Subaru Outback Wilderness thrives. It’s an authentic adventure vehicle taken to an entirely new level, with rugged capability and supreme versatility at its core.

The Outback Wilderness features a standard 260-horsepower direct-injection turbocharged SUBARU BOXER engine that delivers 277 pound-feet of torque and 3,500 pounds of towing capacity. The drivetrain features retuned gearing with a revised front and rear gear ratio for improved low-speed climbing – up to a 40-percent grade. It all powers our trail-proven standard Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive and makes the Outback Wilderness the most capable Subaru we’ve ever built.

With an elevated ground clearance of 9.5 inches, you can take the Outback Wilderness into rougher terrain. The front and rear bumpers have been redesigned for improved approach, break-over, and departure angles, so you can easily clear larger obstacles. The dual-function X-MODE has also been upgraded and retuned, with settings for deep snow, sand and mud that allow additional wheel slip to power through adverse conditions.

The Outback Wilderness is ready for real off-road adventure with tough exterior cladding in blacked-out trim and Anodized Copper-finish accents, offering extra protection around the wheel wells and lower impact zones. It also features a unique matte black hood decal to help reduce glare out on the trail. Standard new 17-inch matte-black alloy off-road wheels and all-terrain Yokohama GEOLANDAR® tires provide improved performance in all types of conditions – from mud, snow and gravel to boulder and rock. A full-size spare is hidden below the cargo area for extra peace of mind when you’re out on the trail.

The redesigned roof rails are set off with Anodized Copper-finish accents and are able to support the weight of a rooftop tent, so you can quickly turn the Outback Wilderness into your comfortable expedition basecamp. Rugged LED fog lights illuminate obstacles ahead and are set in eye-catching hexagon housings. Standard front and rear tow points with Anodized Copper-finish covers combine practical functionality and stylish design.

Inside, there’s even more adventure-ready engineering. All-weather soft-touch upholstery and all-weather rubber floor mats for greater durability. The cabin is protected with durable StarTex water-repellant upholstery featuring a textured honeycomb design. A fully connected infotainment system, including SUBARU STARLINK® Connected Services for superior convenience, connectivity and security. Standard Subaru EyeSight Driver Assist Technology with Lane Centring Assist and Pre-Collision Braking provides impressive safety and driving confidence. The standard EyeSight Driver Assist Technology and other safety features in the Outback Wilderness have been retuned by Subaru engineers to match its increased height and extensive upgrades.

A cavernous cargo area for all your adventure gear, accessed by a wide opening and hands-free tailgate. Every aspect of the Outback Wilderness is designed for off-the-grid adventure, right down to the LED cargo lamp in the rear gate, which lets you find your gear after sundown.
