Subaru is offering a new variant of its popular Outback crossover that promises to be the most capable Outback in the automaker’s history. The new four-door, sold as the 2022 Subaru Outback Wilderness, is enhanced with upgraded off-road equipment to allow its owners to explore even more challenging trails.

The standard engine is Subaru’s turbocharged, 2.4-liter, flat-4 (260 hp/277 lb-ft of torque) sending power through the company’s Lineartronic CVT (continuously variable transmission). A revised final drive ratio within the automatic transmission allows the vehicle to climb grades up to 40 percent on a gravel surface.

Active Torque Split permanent all-wheel drive, with advanced X-Mode, ensures power gets to the wheels that need it. The system includes Snow/Dirt and Deep Snow/Mud modes. For even more capability, the Wilderness is fitted with aggressive Yokohama Geolander A/T tires that are mounted on unique 17-inch alloy wheels (there’s a full-size spare beneath the rear cargo area, which adds peace of mind).

Subaru tuned the suspension to provide a class-leading 9.5 inches of ground clearance and additional travel. The company also fitted the Outback Wilderness with a front skid plate to protect the vehicle in extreme conditions.

As expected, the Subaru Outback Wilderness has unique exterior styling to complement its off-road capabilities. This includes new front and rear bumpers, a bolder grille, larger wheel arch cladding, and black finish around the windows and trim. Of special note is the roof rack, which carries a 700-pound rating for the use of a roof-top tent.
