Subaru Teases The Coming Of The Outback Wilderness

If our guess is right, we’ll get to see the jacked-up Subaru Outback Wilderness before April


  • It should be an even more capable version of the beloved outback.

  • Subaru warns that something wild is coming.

  • The reveal is going to happen later this month.


Everything off-road, rugged, and outdoorsy is very hot these days. Many automakers have slapped on large plastic fender flares and roof-racks to their mainstream models as a means to get consumers into “new” crossovers instead of boring old sedans. Before month’s end, we’ll get to see the wildest version of the Subaru Outback.

2020 Subaru Outback Limited Review: The Shoe Will Always Fit

While they might not be the first to have benefitted from doing so, The Subaru Outback is without a doubt a pioneer and the one car that made cladding and a raised ride height cool. The current generation of the Outback, introduced for the 2019 model year, marked the return of the turbocharged engine as well as the introduction of the Outdoor trim.

Meant to be the more visually robust Outback, it does not however offer any real off-road advantages over the other trims. That’s where this new Outback, the Wilderness, will come in. Spy shots on the web clearly show an Outback with a considerable amount more ground clearance, more aggressive all-terrain tires, and what seems to be a revised front fascia. Subaru adds in its press release that the car will also include functional technology and features inside as well.

Subaru owners are known for upgrading their cars, and they’ve been at it for decades. By the end of March, we’ll get to see if buyers will get a rough and tumble Subie right out of the box.
