The Subaru Outback Wilderness is for those who live in a world full of adventures, full of chic weekend escapes, and weekdays filled with Target and Whole Foods expeditions. The new 2022 Subaru Outback Wilderness is just a blast with a capital B to drive. From its standard 2.4-liter turbocharged SUBARU BOXER® engine, advanced dual-function X-MODE, elevated 9.5-inch ground clearance, standard front skid plate, all-terrain tires, upgraded suspension, and Subaru’s Symmetrical all-wheel drive, our Outback Wilderness had at the ready.
Inside our Outback Wilderness, the award-winning EyeSight Driver Assist Technology and a tablet-style 11.6-inch screen with integrated center information display outside added secure confidence to the overwhelming inherent safety of Subarus. The class-leading 9.5-inch ground clearance has a suspension tuned for improved stability on rough terrain while retaining ride comfort and handling performance on the highway. The front and rear shock absorbers and springs were increased in length to provide more ground clearance and suspension travel.
The Outback Wilderness comes equipped with Yokohama GEOLANDAR® all-terrain tires for better performance on muddy or gravel roads. The tires are mounted on exclusive 17-inch alloy wheels in a matte black finish and embossed with raised white letters: an homage to the original Outback. A standard full-size tire is stored under the cargo area, giving owners confidence while on the trails.
The increased ground clearance and redesigned front and rear bumpers contribute to agility on rough or uneven terrain. Approach angles on the SUV have been extended from 18.6 degrees to 20.0, ramp break-over angle shifts from 19.4 degrees to 21.2 degrees, and the departure angle soars from 21.7 degrees to an impressive 23.6 degrees.
In addition to the increased off-road capability, the Outback Wilderness delivers the optimal blend of SUV capability and car-like ride and handling that the legendary SUV is known for with help from standard features including Active Torque Vectoring and Vehicle Dynamics Control. Thoughtful upgrades, such as a Front View Monitor, LED Rear Gate Light, and Hands-Free Power Rear-Gate improve convenience on the trail. Driving Outback Wilderness brings back the joy of the escape.
