2022 Subaru Forester Wilderness

With the all-new 2022 Subaru Forester Wilderness, the all-terrain capability of the Forester now ranges farther than ever before. It features off-road upgrades like increased ground clearance, a revised drivetrain optimized for climbing, and the trail-tested confidence of standard Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive. Tough exterior cladding, matte black alloy wheels with all-terrain tires, and blacked-out exterior trim create a rugged look that’s as eye-catching as it is functional and protective. The available exclusive Geyser Blue exterior paint contrasts with Anodized Copper finish accents for a bold style that looks like nothing else on the trail. Since it’s a Subaru, you can count on the Forester Wilderness to be safe and durable with standard EyeSight® Driver Assist Technology and class-leading longevity, 97% of Subaru Forester vehicles sold in the last 10 years are still on the road today, more than Honda CR-V, Toyota RAV4, Jeep Cherokee, Ford Escape, or Hyundai Santa Fe.

It features a balanced design for better stability on a wide range of surfaces and optimizes power distribution between the wheels to deliver maximum traction on challenging trails or in slippery weather conditions. Working together with the rest of the all-terrain upgrades on the Forester Wilderness, you can count on the confident grip of Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive to take your adventures deeper into the backcountry than ever before.

Ground Clearance

9.2 Inches of Ground Clearance with Front Skid Plate and Improved Angles
