What’s New from the 2023 Subaru Outback: Wilderness Edition?

The 2023 version of Subaru Outback Wilderness has not been released yet, and it’s a fact. This lineup of Subaru, which is designed to accompany you to tackle wild adventures, is expected to bring a massive remodel. And that’s what we’re going to cover throughout this article.

Predicting what features we will find in the 2023 Subaru Outback Wilderness Edition will not be far from talking about the current version of this car—the 2022 version. Although many sources mentioned that there would be a significant façade change, it’s still hard to predict the output result if there is no clue from the manufacturer itself.

Moreover, only a few reliable sources mention the makeover. Indeed, something in its engine, interior, and exterior, will change. However, we’ll never know the details until it gets released.

But you shouldn’t be disappointed with this article. We’re here to become a ‘future reader’ and see what Subaru will bring to its Outback Wilderness edition.

First, let’s discuss its look. The exterior of the 2023 version of Subaru Outback Wilderness indeed will have something to makeover. Its powertrain, ground clearance, and tires may not be different from now. However, other exterior aspects such as headlights, bumpers, and hexagon grille will be changed, but not much.

Overall, the 2023 Subaru Outback Wilderness look will still have its logo embedded, both outside and inside. Adding to the improvement is the installation of the skid plate. A sporty look may also be found in next year’s release. Besides promoting the way an SUV looks, it is also to compete with its rivals.

What Can We Expect from Its Inside?

Sources mentioned the interior aspects from the 2023 Subaru Outback Wilderness Edition might not be that much different. This is because the focal point of its modification is on its exterior.

So, what the current model stores in hand may also come together with the next release. Seating materials and how the interior is designed may be the same. However, the addition of anodized copper accent for several places may be something that you can expect from the upcoming release.

The seating upholstery is made from faux leather. As if accentuating its feature as an SUV, you will get it waterproof. So, you won’t need to be afraid of spilling coke while having a crossover ride.

From its entertainment side, a giant 11.6-inch touchscreen seems to be another point to notice from the Outback Wilderness edition. It is significant, but it is also different by installing it vertically. Compared to rivals, indeed, this is one central plus fact.

To complete the touch of a modern mid-size SUV, the car will indeed have the most updated Android Auto or Apple CarPlay. Other connectivity too will also exist, such as USB and Bluetooth.

What About Its Engine?

A direct-injection turbocharged engine powers the 2023 Subaru Outback Wilderness Edition. The engine displacement itself may not be that different compared to the current version of Outback Wilderness, which is currently at 2.4 L. Several sources believe that that’ll be improved, although not significant.

Coming with that, the upcoming Outback Wilderness is expected to produce at least 260 HP at 277 lb. ft. engine torque; not that powerful, but enough for a mid-size SUV.

The transmission of this car is CVT, ensuring a better fuel economy. According to sources, the current version of this car has a combined fuel efficiency of 10 km/liter. As for city roads and highways, it is 9.17 km/liter and 12.2 km/liter. It is pretty average for a mid-size SUV.

What’s unique from the 2023 Subaru Outback Wilderness edition is its Eye-Sight technology. This technology, which is also a part of its safety mechanism, offers a technology assisting drivers in preventing collision with stereo cameras. This feature is also expected to exist in the upcoming release of Subaru Outback Wilderness.
