Fresh is subtle. The Forester’s entire front fascia including the grille and headlights gets reworked. The roof rails have been redesigned and all trims come with Subaru’s driver-assistance suite of tech called the iSight. One interesting thing to note about the iSight on the Wilderness trim is its calibration. Our very own Adam Ismail gets up close and personal with Forester Jungle in a Subaru Competition More recently it was reported that Subaru owners were lifting their own vehicles, which messed with the iSight’s vision angle. The iSight on the Wilderness is calibrated to accommodate for its lift so that shouldn’t be a problem.

All models continue to be powered by a naturally aspirated 2.5-liter Boxer engine with 182 horsepower and 176 lb-ft of torque. That engine is mated to the brand’s Lineartronic CVT which may or may not be a good thing. And it wouldn’t be a Subaru without standard symmetrical all-wheel drive.

The big news is the Wilderness trim, which sits two trims below the top of the line in the six-trim lineup. Like its Outback Wilderness cousin, Subaru describes the Forester Wilderness as “the most rugged and trail-capable Forester ever.” What makes it so harsh? Well, you’ll see the design difference first:

To visually communicate more capable off-road performance, the Forester Wilderness comes with an all-new front fascia with bold hexagonal front grille, large wheel arch cladding, front skid plates, unique hexagonal LED fog lights and an anti-glare hood decal. Adds special style. In matte-black finish.

As for the rugged parts, that includes Yokohama Geolander all-terrain tires on 17-inch wheels, 9.2 inches of ground clearance, which Subaru says is a half-inch more than a standard Forester, and things like larger coil springs and shock absorbers Huh. Inside are special water-resistant seats and a sturdy roof rack that can hold up to 800 lbs when the vehicle is parked.

Pricing for the 2022 Forester starts at $25,195 for the base model and tops out at $35,295 for the Touring. The Jungle starts at $32,820. The 2022 Forester hits dealers in October.
