The Subaru Forester Wilderness has been unveiled for drivers that are looking to travel a bit further into adventurous parts. The new package adds a number of adventure-ready pieces of equipment both inside and out.
As standard, the Subaru Forester Wilderness gains Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive with a specially revised drivetrain, standard X-Mode, an elevated 234 mm ground clearance and exclusive wheels with all-terrain tyres. The Forester Wilderness also offers unique and functional exterior and interior design cues.
The Subaru Forester Wilderness also boasts a new ladder-type roof rail design. The improved rail system offers a higher dynamic load capacity of just under 100 kg and a 363 kg static load limit, allowing safe use of a roof-top tent. Helpful tie-down locations have also been integrated into the rails. Inside, two additional utility hooks have been added to the roof of the rear cargo area and a brighter LED interior dome lamp with off-delay is now standard.
As mentioned, the Subaru Forester Wilderness comes equipped with Yokohama Geolandar all-terrain tyres with white embossing for increased traction on muddy or gravel roads. These are paired with a set of exclusive 17-inch alloy wheels in matte black finish. A standard full-size tyre is stored under the cargo the area for peace of mind.
To visually communicate the more capable off-road performance, the Forester Wilderness adds exclusive styling with all-new front fascia with bold hexagonal front grille, larger wheel arch cladding, front skid plate, unique hexagonal LED foglamps and an anti-glare bonnet decal in matte-black finish.
A single option package is available for the Wilderness that includes an 8,0-inch touchscreen infotainment system, Harman Kardon premium speakers and an electronic tailgate.
With the reveal of this package, the overall Subaru Forester range has been given a series of updates as well. These include the latest version of EyeSight driver assist technology, an LED dome light with off-delay operation and additional cargo area hooks.
The entire Forester lineup receives a bolder new look with a redesigned front fascia, grille, headlamps and foglamp covers with each change element varying to match the character of each trim level.
