New 2022 Subaru Outback Wilderness in Lafayette

2022 Subaru Outback Wilderness: Ready to explore parts unknown

Subaru has been known for years as a great ally out in the wild, but the new Subaru Outback Wilderness at Giles Subaru in Lafayette, LA is ready to take you farther. This all-wheel-drive station wagon has the extra off-road strength to take on the kind of hostile territory you've been wanting to tackle for years. It's the most fearless Subaru Outback ever built so before you explore the wild, let's explore the new Outback Wilderness trim.


The new 2022 Subaru Outback Wilderness runs with a 2.4-liter turbocharged flat-four engine that can create 286 horsepower, along with 277 lb-ft of torque. To enhance its off-road prowess even more, wheels were shrunk one inch to 17 inches and wrapped with special all-terrain tires. The result in this already-lifted wagon is an extra .8-inch of ground clearance up to 9.5 inches. There's also a new skid plate to provide more under-side protection.

The transmission has been tweaked to enhance low speed performance off-road. The approach, breakover and departure angles have all been nudged upward to 20.0, 21.2 and 23.6 degrees. But the big news remains the 9.5 inches of clearance. That's something you're going to like when you're forging streams, traversing new trails and heading across areas with no trails at all, a long way from your home in New Iberia or Opelousas, LA.


Since you'll spend a lot of time focused on getting past the often-unfriendly surfaces you'll be driving over, Subaru made the infotainment screen extra-large at 11.6 inches. You'll be using that very view-able screen to operate internal controls while you take advantage of your Android Auto™ or AppleCarPlay smart phone connectivity. While basking in your gnarly surroundings, let some extra light in through the power moonroof.

Interior & Design

The inside of the new 2022 Subaru Outback Wilderness trim is dressed in new apparel to fend off the mud and rain and dirt you're going to allow inside when you're out in the middle of nowhere. It's a StarTex fabric that's steadfastly water-repellant. It has a sturdy neoprene-like feeling and a waffle texture that adds to the sense of lasting endurance. Even your big dog will have trouble trying to damage this fabric, let alone Mother Nature.

Another thing you'll appreciate about the interior of the new Subaru Outback Wilderness is that it's both roomy and comfortable. That's true of the front and back rows – something you don't always get in a real off-road SUV. Cargo room behind the back seats is a generous 32.5 cubic feet and when you fold those rear seats down, you get an even more generous 75.7 cubic feet. That's 50% more space than the Volvo 90 Cross Country.

The newest Outback Wilderness is tall enough to stand above its standard Outback brethren, so you get the privilege of a little higher outlook on the world. There's additional body cladding for greater protection from whatever the wilderness throws at you. The six-spoke wheels have their own distinctive look, especially wrapped in Yokohama Geolandar all-terrain tires.

Fuel Economy

For a vehicle as capable as the new 2022 Subaru Outback Wilderness, the fuel economy is more than adequate. When you take it out to pursue your own off-road challenges, look for mileage around 22 miles with every mile as you travel through urban areas and about 26 miles with each mile you drive on the highway after you leave Alexandria or Lake Charles, LA. Test drive the new 2022 Subaru Outback Wilderness at Giles Subaru.
