Which should you buy, 2021 or 2022? If you’re an adventurer or live in a more rugged landscape, you’ll want the Outback Wilderness; for the other nearly unchanged trim levels, look for a deal on a 2021 example.
The big change for the 2022 Subaru Outback wagon is a new, more off-road-oriented Wilderness model. Other versions of the 2022 Outback, which Subaru completely redesigned for the 2020 model year, get only minor tweaks. They include standard LED foglights for all trims and rear-seat climate vents for the Premium trim, along with small price increases across the board.
