9.5 Inches of Ground Clearance with Front Skid Plate, Improved Angles, and Enhanced X-MODE

With an elevated ground clearance of 9.5 inches, you can take the Outback Wilderness into rougher terrain. The front and rear bumpers have been redesigned for improved approach, break-over, and departure angles, so you can easily clear larger obstacles. The dual-function X-MODE has also been upgraded and retuned, with settings for deep snow and mud that allow additional wheel slip to power through adverse conditions and stay enabled even above 25 miles per hour.

Standard Direct-Injection Turbocharged SUBARU BOXER Engine and Retuned Gearing

Outback Wilderness features a standard 260-horsepower direct-injection turbocharged SUBARU BOXER engine that delivers 277 pound-feet of torque and 3,500 pounds of towing capacity. The drivetrain features retuned gearing with a revised front and rear gear ratio for improved low-speed climbing – up to a 40 degree grade. It all powers our trail-proven standard Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive and makes the Outback Wilderness the most capable Subaru we've ever built.

New Off-Road Wheels with All-Terrain Tires and Full-Size Spare

Standard new matte color off-road wheels and all-terrain Yokohama GEOLANDAR tires provide improved performance in all types of conditions – from mud, snow and gravel to boulder and rock. A full-size spare is hidden below the cargo area for extra peace of mind when you're out on the trail.

Anti-Glare Hood Design

The Outback Wilderness makes picking out your path a little easier with a uniquely designed hood that features a matte black accent to cut down on driver glare.
