All New, Subaru Outback ‘Wilderness’ Edition: Is It, Uh, Wildernesser?

All New, Subaru Outback ‘Wilderness’ Edition: Is It, Uh, Wildernesser?

It appears Subaru has done the latter with the new Wilderness edition of the Outback, just unveiled this morning. The Wilderness edition also has 9.5 inches of ground clearance, nearly an inch more than the regular Outback. Then, there’s an improved gearing for the Wilderness edition, allowing it better low-speed climbing and the ability to climb a 40 percent grade without the transmission throwing up its hands and bailing. Boom, just like that, the Wilderness edition is significantly more capable than the regular Outback. Finally, in a less-heralded but important upgrade, the roof rack can support 700 pounds, a huge improvement that’s designed to support roof top tents.
