Finally, the day of total uncovering arrived. Subaru removed the cloak completely from Outback Wilderness, the most extreme variant of the well-known off-road vehicle, whose improved attributes seek to satisfy all those who enjoy driving away from the asphalt.
While its length and wheelbase remain unchanged, it is 40 millimeters wider and twenty millimeters taller. The extra space between the underside of the body and the asphalt is due to the presence of a more robust suspension designed to face more difficult terrain, equipped with shock absorbers and springs with longer travel.
The off-road aesthetics is enhanced by the presence of exclusive 17 inch black wheels and the Yokohama Geolandar tires that surround them.
The Subaru Outback Wilderness also check its front, with a different front grill and foggers that change their position. The bumpers are also new and are not only aesthetic but also practical, helping to improve the entry, exit and belly angles of the Wilderness. Now these are from 20, 23.6 and 21.2 degrees, respectively.
In addition, the manufacturer of the Pleiades has a series of copper-colored details both on the front and on the roof bars, as well as a skid plate at the front.
In the cabin, the 11.6 ″ screen stands out, as well as the copper-colored details and a hydrophobic material that covers the seats.
Subaru will offer the Outback Wilderness with a four-cylinder turbocharged boxer drive and 2.4 liters, which produces 260 horsepower and a maximum torque of375 Nm, combined with the Lineartronic CVT gearbox and all-wheel drive with vector torque sharing, as well as an updated ‘X-Mode’.
The Japanese brand revised the final drive ratio from 4.11: 1 to 4.44: 1, allowing it to more easily tackle slopes of up to 40% on a gravel surface.
The new Outback Wilderness Edition is expected to land in US dealerships in late 2021.
