Discover the all-new 2022 Subaru
Adventure on a deeper level.
The all-new 2022 Subaru Forester Wilderness is here to open up new frontiers for you to explore. The Forester Wilderness delivers enhanced off-road capability with increased ground clearance, a revised drivetrain for low speed, off-road performance, and the trail-tested confidence of standard Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive. Its style is just as rugged with tough exterior cladding, matte black alloy wheels with all-terrain tires, and blacked-out exterior trim contrasting with Anodized Copper finish accents. Because it’s a Subaru, you know you can trust it to be durable and safe with the advanced protection of standard EyeSight® Driver Assist Technology. So, no matter how far your Forester Wilderness takes you, you can always count on it to bring you safely back home.
Built for Rugged Adventure
Standard Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive
The impressive off-road capability of the Forester Wilderness starts with its dependable Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive. It features a balanced design for better stability on a wide range of surfaces and optimizes power distribution between the wheels to deliver maximum traction on challenging trails or in slippery weather conditions. Working together with the rest of the all-terrain upgrades on the Forester Wilderness, you can count on the confident grip of Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive to take your adventures deeper into the backcountry than ever before.
9.2 Inches of Ground Clearance with Front Skid Plate and Improved Angles
The Forester Wilderness can ride above rough terrain thanks to 9.2 inches of increased ground clearance and the added protection of a standard front skid plate. The redesigned front and rear bumpers help keep clear of larger rocks and other obstacles with improved approach and departure angles.
Matte Black Finish Wheels with All-Terrain Tires and Full-Size Spare
For better traction in all kinds of conditions, the Forester Wilderness features standard Yokohama GEOLANDAR® A/T all-terrain tires mounted to unique 17-inch matte black finish alloy wheels. You’ll feel free to explore even farther down the trail with a full-size spare wheel and tire stored below the cargo area.
Enhanced Dual-Function X-MODE®
The dual-function X-MODE is upgraded and re-tuned, with settings for snow, dirt, deep snow and mud that allow additional wheel slip to power through adverse conditions.
SUBARU BOXER® Engine and Revised Drivetrain Gearing
Along with the time-tested reliability of its direct-injection SUBARU BOXER® engine, the Forester Wilderness drivetrain features re-tuned gearing with revised ratios for improved low-speed climbing. With an upgraded towing capacity of up to 3000 pounds, you can bring along even more gear and adventure equipment.
Textured StarTex® Upholstery
Durable, easy-to-clean interior of the Forester Wilderness is clad with StarTex® water-repellent upholstery featuring a textured honeycomb design and copper accent stitching.
Fold-Down Rear Seats With Protective Seat-Back Material
60/40-split fold-down rear seatbacks give you the flexibility to accommodate even more cargo and feature protective material to stand up to wear and tear from passengers, pets, and gear.

Rugged Exterior Design
With its protective exterior cladding covering the wheel wells and lower impact zones, the Forester Wilderness can handle anything the trail throws at it. The blacked-out trim with Anodized Copper finish accents, Wilderness badging, and exclusively available Geyser Blue exterior paint bring extra style into the deep woods.
Anti-Glare Hood Finish
The Forester Wilderness features a matte black hood accent to help reduce sun glare, so you have a clearer view of the trail ahead.
Exclusive Interior Style and Advanced Technology
Inside the Forester Wilderness, you’ll find high-quality materials set off with contrast stitching and Anodized Copper finish accents and trim. Convenient LED lighting makes it easy to see maps and gear. A standard 8-inch touchscreen sits at the center of the dashboard for easy, intuitive control of the SUBARU STARLINK® Multimedia system with Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ integration, so you can enjoy all your favorite music, podcasts, and more, even when your way off the grid.
Count on It Anywhere
With You for Trail After Trail
You and your Forester Wilderness are going to see a lot of backcountry together – 97% of Forester models sold in the last 10 years are still on the road today. That’s more than the Toyota RAV4 or Honda CRV. That kind of trusted reliability is why Subaru vehicles hold their value better than any other brand, according to ALG.
A Vehicle You Can Trust
You’ll love your Forester Wilderness because of the places it can take you, but you’ll trust it because it’s a Subaru. Kelley Blue Book has named Subaru as its Most Trusted Brand seven years running as well as a four-time Best Overall Brand winner.
