2022 Subaru Outback Wilderness™ Coming Later This Year

The new 2022 Subaru Outback Wilderness™, with elevated 9.5-inch ground clearance, is powered by a 260 horsepower 2.4-liter turbocharged BOXER engine rated at 22 city/26 highway with a 3,500-lb. towing capacity. A revised rear differential with a final drive ratio of 4.44:1 was fitted, and the Lineartronic CVT® (Continuously Variable Transmission) was modified to achieve an equivalent final drive ratio at the front wheels to improve available low-end torque at the wheels to climb grades up to 40 percent on a gravel surface. Standard dual-function X-MODE includes Snow/Dirt and Deep Snow/Mud modes. Exclusive to Outback Wilderness, a new advanced feature for X-MODE allows the vehicle to switch automatically from low speed managed driving to speeds over 25 mph without interruption of power or performance. Pricing for the 2022 Outback Wilderness will be announced later this year.
