2022 Subaru Outback Review
What is the Outback?

Is it a wagon? Is it an SUV? Technically it's an SUV but we here at Edmunds know a station wagon when we see one, and Subaru's Outback is the go-to vehicle if you want the versatility of an SUV, the road manners of a wagon, and a sprinkling of adventure. With standard all-wheel drive and a healthy number of standard advanced driver assists, the Outback makes a lot of sense for families who don't happen to reside in the sunbelt. And while we're not so fond of the base engine, the optional turbocharged mill absolutely gets the job done.

For 2022, rumors of a new, more rugged option package are beginning to spread. Seen in spy photos, the Wilderness Edition sports some serious ride height along with knobby tires and what looks like added underbody protection. There could also be a light front-end refresh as well, but we're not sure if that will be something exclusive to the new off-road package or not.

EdmundsEdmunds says

If you're the outdoorsy type, the Subaru Outback is tough to beat. It offers a comfortable ride and gobs of cargo space, and its standard all-wheel drive and raised ride height mean it can go a lot of places more pedestrian SUVs just can't. For 2022, it appears the Outback will beef up its off-road chops, so it might be worth the wait if you prefer the looks and road manners of the Subaru to a more traditional SUV. Be sure to check back with Edmunds for more details on the 2022 Subaru Outback as they become available.
