The Subaru Outback is already one of the automaker’s most adventure-ready vehicles, but the popular wagon is getting even more in touch with its wild side for 2022 with the new Outback Wilderness model. Subaru calls it the most capable Outback thanks to suspension and all-wheel-drive upgrades that increase its capabilities.
Here are four things to know about the 2022 Subaru Outback Wilderness.
1. It Looks the Part
Outside, the Outback Wilderness wears more rugged-looking front and rear bumpers along with larger wheel arch cladding, a more aggressive front skid plate, special hexagonal LED foglights, black window trim, a matte-black anti-glare hood decal and Wilderness badges.
In addition, it’s further distinguished from the regular version by an enormous roof rack. The ladder-type setup has a load limit of 700 pounds, which Subaru says can be used safely with a roof-top tent.
Lastly, it’s available in a new exclusive color, Geyser Blue, which was inspired by scenery found in U.S. National Parks.
