There’s a Lifted, Meaner-Looking Subaru Outback ‘Wilderness’ Coming in 2022The Subaru Outback (as well as the taller, shorter Forester) already has impressive off-road chops from the factory. 8.7 inches of ground clearance, a terrific AWD system, plus X-Mode, a sophisticated software suite that outthinks terrain for even more traction. Most crucially, they need highly visible externally mounted shovels. They are reportedly releasing a Wilderness version of the Outback starting in 2022. There appears to be a much tougher roof rack, no doubt to support rooftop tents without having to buy aftermarket rack equipment, and to show off that externally mounted shovel, of course.
