The all-new Subaru Outback Wilderness. The first of our Wilderness family has just arrived, and it’s taking Subaru capability to new heights. With even more ground clearance, a turbocharged SUBARU BOXER® engine, and a drivetrain tuned for serious climbing, Outback Wilderness lets you go farther than a Subaru has ever gone before. The standard Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive is paired with aggressive new wheels and tough all-terrain tires, and the dual-function X-MODE® has new functionality for rugged terrain.

Inside, you'll find our most technologically advanced interior yet, clad in durable StarTex® upholstery and showcasing an 11.6-inch standard touchscreen. With all the many upgrades and modifications, standard EyeSight® Driver Assist Technology[1] and other safety features have been re-tuned to match the new vehicle height and off-road capabilities. Get ready to take your adventures to the next level in a new kind of Outback.

Rugged Exterior Styling

The Subaru Outback Wilderness is ready for real off-road adventure with tough exterior cladding in blacked-out trim and Anodized Copper-finish accents, offering extra protection around the wheel wells and lower impact zones.


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, sand and mud that allow additional wheel slip to power through adverse conditions.

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-percent 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 17-inch matte-black alloy 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 unique matte black hood decal to help reduce glare out on the trail.


Textured StarTex Upholstery

The Outback Wilderness isn’t just rugged on the outside. The cabin is protected with durable StarTex water-repellant upholstery featuring a textured honeycomb design.

Exclusive Interior Styling

The interior features high-quality materials with Anodized Copper-finish accents, trim, and contrast stitching for a premium look and feel that’s exclusive to the Outback Wilderness.


SUBARU STARLINK® Multimedia with 11.6-inch Touchscreen

The Outback Wilderness cabin is packed with technological advancements. Its stunning centerpiece is the standard high-resolution 11.6-inch touchscreen, which provides easy and intuitive access to your apps, entertainment, and available navigation on the STARLINK Multimedia system with Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ integration.
