The 2022 Subaru Forester Wilderness Edition in Rockville MD

Introducing the New Subaru Forester Wilderness in Rockville

If you are looking for one of the safest and most tech-savvy vehicles on the road, the Subaru Wilderness trim is a great choice. The Wilderness features the classic rugged capabilities of a Subaru SUV with even more off-roading amenities. The Forester Wilderness, which is the newest addition to the Subaru Forester lineup, comes with an even more durable exterior. With the Wilderness, you'll get alloy wheels, LED headlights, and more ground clearance compared to other trims in the Forester SUV family. The Wilderness also comes with Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive (AWD), all-terrain tires, and a SUBARU BOXER® engine.

Capability & Performance

All-wheel drive is standard with the Subaru Forester Wilderness trim. However, it has a separate and more powerful engine from its peers. Driving the Subaru Forester Wilderness is a SUBARU BOXER® engine with four cylinders and a 2.5-liter displacement. The engine under the Wilderness model's hood gives it a maximum power output of 182 horsepower, and it produces a maximum of 176 pound-feet of torque. Upgraded AWD is a welcome addition to the Wilderness trim. It also comes with a unique off-road design that includes a raised suspension system and all-terrain tires.

The Wilderness model comes configured with 17-inch aluminum-alloy wheels in a matte-black finish. Subaru specifically configured the Wilderness trim for off-road driving, complete with a unique design that is functionally and aesthetically different from the Wilderness model's peers. The Subaru Forester Wilderness has unique black exterior badges and a front skid plate. This trim also has a distinctive fender flare design and a different bumper design to make it more agile in all conditions. A low ratio setting with the Wilderness trim's AWD mechanism makes it easier to tackle off-road conditions around Silver Spring.

The new Wilderness model also has more drive modes than most others in the lineup. The wider range of drive modes gives the Forester Wilderness more confidence and predictability when you are navigating difficult conditions and terrain around Gaithersburg.

Safety Features

Equipped with Subaru's award-winning EyeSight® technology, the Subaru Forester Wilderness Edition is ready to take on the trails or paved roads from dusk to dawn and all the hours in between. Anyone looking to stay safe on their outings around Washington DC will appreciate the solid set of advanced safety features that come standard with the Wilderness, including a lane keeping assist system, forward collision mitigation, adaptive cruise control, and automatic high beams. Some advanced safety features are available, too, including blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert. A driver attention monitor system is an option to enhance the safety package with the Wilderness.


On the inside, the Wilderness is just as sophisticated as its Subaru Forester peers, but it has even more delightful features to offer. The Wilderness, like other models, seats five people. The Subaru Forester Wilderness comes with automatic climate control, rear air vents, a panoramic power moonroof, power-adjustable front seats, StarTex® water-repellent upholstery, heated front seats, and a leather steering wheel that gives the cabin a classy look. Only the Wilderness comes with waterproof leather upholstery. The Subaru Forester Wilderness trim also has a large touchscreen interface.


When it comes to technology, the Wilderness is just as tech-savvy and capable as its Forester peers, even though it has a more rugged exterior design. The Wilderness comes equipped with Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, and smartphone integration to accompany its large infotainment display. Navigation is also available for your adventures around North Bethesda. The Wilderness offers you the option of a premium Harman Kardon® sound system, and it comes with more advanced safety features.
