2022 Subaru Outback Wilderness

The all-new 2022 Subaru Outback wilderness is the first vehicle in the wilderness family and is loaded with off-road-ready upgrades! The wilderness is equipped with higher ground clearance, a turbocharged SUBARU BOXER engine, and all-terrain tires. It also includes Subaru’s Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive, as well as the award-winning EyeSight Driver Assist Technology and an 11.6-inch SUBARU STARLINK Multimedia system with an integrated center information display.

Advanced Safety Features

The wilderness was designed for unlimited adventure and uncompromising safety. The 2022 Outback features the confidence of standard Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive with up to 33 MPG. It includes safety features such as standard EyeSight® Driver Assist Technology and the available DriverFocus® Distraction Mitigation System. The outback has up to 9.5 inches of ground clearance and standard X-MODE. The X-MODE works by optimizing the Symmetrical All-Wheel-Drive System for maximum traction.

New Wheels

The new Off-road wheels with All-Terrain Tires were built for any adventure! The standard 17-inch matte-black alloy wheels provide improved performances in even the toughest trail conditions. There is also a full-size spare hidden below the cargo area for extra peace of mind when you’re out on the trails.
