2022 Subaru Outback Wilderness review: Stand tall – Roadshow
by Tim Stevens
So what’s new? The big story is that lift. The Wilderness Outback offers a healthy 9.5 inches of ground travel. If you need context, as my colleague Steven Ewing pointed out in his Wilderness first drive, that matches the clearance offered by the Mercedes-Benz G-Class. Few would question that thing’s stance.
Mind you, performance after the asphalt ends has as much to do with drivetrain, and the Wilderness makes do with largely the same setup as the regular Outback. That is, open front and rear differentials driven from a continuously variable transmission and a clutch-type center differential. However, a shift to a 4.44:1 final drive ratio compared to the 4.11:1 in the standard Outback means more torque for low-speed rock crawling. Sadly, it also means fuel economy reduction: 22 mpg city, 26 mpg highway and 24 mpg combined compared to 23, 30 and 26, respectively. In my testing those figures proved accurate, with a 24.2 mpg average in mixed driving.
