Is This Your First Look at 2022 Subaru Forester Wilderness?

Subaru teases new Wilderness model

  • Subaru teases second member of Wilderness family

  • We’ll have to wait longer for the full details


Subaru has just announced that there will be a second member of the brand’s Wilderness family. Subaru is trying to give us the tiniest hint of what the next off-road-ready model will be, but based on the details and door creases in the tiny teaser photo we’re quite confident in saying that what we’re looking at here is the 2022 Subaru Forester Wilderness.

The 2022 Subaru Outback Wilderness took the formula that created the Outback in the first place – a lifted and ruggedized version of a Subaru model – and then took it one step further. We’re expecting the Wilderness version of this new vehicle, which we’re saying is a Forester (with a Crosstrek likely making a reveal sometime next year), to offer the same basic stuff.

For the Outback, Subaru took the more powerful turbocharged engine and then added an inch of ground clearance with longer shocks and springs providing more ground clearance. All-terrain tires help it get over rocks, mud, and trails, while new gearing for the CVT boosts torque at low speed.

New bumpers help approach and departure angles, dual-function X-Mode helps the driver manage power in the slippery stuff, and loads of special Wilderness trim included larger fender flares, a matte black hood decal, Wilderness badging, and the special blue paint you can see in Subaru’s current teaser. Inside, the Outback added water repellant seat covers and copper-colour accents.

While we’ll have to wait for Subaru to tell us officially what all of the changes are, we’re quite confident in saying that this is your first look at a 2022 (or 2023) Subaru Forester Wilderness.
