Every Forester in the lineup, including the new Wilderness trim, features an inline-four engine that delivers 182 horsepower. Accompanying the engine is a continuously variable transmission (CVT) that moves through the engine swiftly to deliver well-timed shifts. The engine does an excellent job in most driving situations, and it brings this vehicle up to speed on the highways. Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive (AWD) is standard.

The Forester Wilderness trim records different gas mileage ratings from the other trims in the Forester lineup. The EPA-estimated ratings are 28 mpg and 25 mpg on the highway and city, respectively.

When it comes to off-road cruising, the Wilderness travels with no difficulty. It comes in handy for exploring beyond the pavement near Germantown, MD. Its off-road attributes include the standard AWD system, nine inches of ground clearance, and an X-MODE® management system that improves grip on slippery or harsh road conditions. Another good thing about this Wilderness trim is that it also features a forward-facing off-road camera and all-terrain tires. Unlike other models, the Wilderness model manages to tow up to 3,000 pounds around Washington DC.

Safety Features

The new Subaru Forester Wilderness comes standard with automatic emergency braking designed to automatically slow down the vehicle in case of an oncoming collision. The automatic emergency braking works together with a forward collision alert that scans the road ahead for any object in the lane of a moving vehicle. Its backup camera is beneficial while reversing, mainly in tight places like the parking lots. The adaptive cruise control is also among the safety features, and it uses sensory tech to determine the SUV's speed in proximity to other vehicles on the asphalt. It gives warning signals when the SUV is getting too close to another vehicle. Low tire pressure warning, lane keep assist, and an airbag system are other safety features accompanying the Wilderness model.

Interior Features

The new Subaru SUV model offers one of the roomiest cabins in the class. The cabin appears well-designed with several quality materials that will have anybody's attention. The interior will keep passengers insulated from the outside noise. Water-repellent upholstery is also standard in this trim. Five passengers represent the maximum seating capacity, and each seat is supportive and comfortable for long driving hours. Drivers and passengers will appreciate the great outward visibility. Additionally, the cargo area doesn't let down, given that it can accommodate several suitcases and even more when you fold the second-row seats.

The interior also comes filled with tech components, evident from the 8-inch touchscreen that does various functions, especially when you pair it with your device. Pairing your device with the touchscreen gives you the convenience of operating your phone through the screen, avoiding unnecessary distractions while driving around Rockville. You can make calls and receive text messages via the touchscreen. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are available for the Subaru Forester, too. Automatic climate control is an additional standard feature you can consider, especially if you want a nice interior temperature while cruising. The tech uses outside weather to come up with a suitable internal temperature.
