Similar Yet Distinct Designs

You wouldn't be wrong to see the all-new Subaru Outback as just another higher trim level of the standard Subaru Outback. That's because the Wilderness model started out as a standard Outback, but then it was given a lift, unique design cues, and its own seventeen-inch matte black wheels. You'll also get a full-size spare tire, LED hexagonal fog lights, and roof rails that are good for up to 700 pounds. While you do get a full-size spare with the new Subaru Outback Onyx Edition XT, the rest of these features are unique to the new Subaru Outback. You'll probably also notice the taller 9.5-inch ground clearance under the Wilderness model that adds to the capability of the impressive 8.7 inches under the rest of the Subaru Outback lineup.

Leading Technology & Infotainment

In this digital age, staying connected is just a part of life, and that's unfortunately led to an increase in distracted driving. Fortunately, Subaru has been developing their STARLINK multimedia systems to be more reliable, easier to use, and better than ever. Just take these new Subaru Outback models for example. The entry-level Outback is equipped with dual seven-inch touchscreens and seamless phone integration through Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™. The new Outback is equipped with a large 11.6-inch touchscreen that makes things even easier, and this same system is standard on all but the entry-level Subaru Outback. Both models do come with adaptive cruise control that maintains a safe distance from the traffic in front of you, and this is just a preview of the technology waiting for you in either of these Subaru Outback models.

SUV Performance Worthy Of A Subaru Badge

For generations, the Subaru Outback has defined the world's most advanced utility wagons, and the latest models are no exception. Naturally, the new Outback and Outback come standard with Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive, but overall performance is one of the main differences between these two models. At the start of the lineup, the new Subaru Outback is equipped with a 2.5-liter flat BOXER® engine making a capable 182 horsepower with 176 lb/ft of torque. To take your adventures a bit further, the new 2022 Subaru Outback comes with a 2.4-liter turbocharged BOXER® engine pumping out 260 horsepower with 277 lb/ft of torque. This additional power teams up with enhanced dual-function X-MODE to take you just about anywhere, but the additional capability will cost a bit of gas mileage compared to the standard Subaru Outback. If you're looking to tow, the entry-level Subaru Outback models are rated for up to 2,700 pounds while the Outback can tow up to 3,500 pounds.
