Subaru launched its Wilderness line with the Outback. Now it’s extending that trim family over to the Forester. And I’m on my way to Bend, Oregon to see what it’s all about. So what do you want to know about this thing?
As a refresher on the Wilderness as it applies to the Outback, here’s my video review of that one:
That one is a surprisingly fun machine that goes a bit over the top on the cladding. But at least it’s there to serve a purpose. I expect more of the same with the Forester except in a tighter yet taller package. What I’m really hoping Subaru does someday is create a mash-up of the STI and Wilderness ideals… and give us a Crosstrek STI Wilderness that puts capability and performance under the skin of that lifted pseudo-wagon.
