Subaru Outback Wilderness Edition spotted with less camouflage

The company known for making lifted cars is making... another lifted car!

The super spies we've hired have done it again. Cloaked in ghillie suits, our spies waited for hours, in the muck and mire - all for you! This time they caught the Subaru Outback Wilderness Edition before you're supposed to see it. Everyone's favorite lift kit company with a car brand is doing it all over again.

If my memory serves me right, didn't the Outback start out as a lifted Legacy? I'd like to call this new Subaru Outback Wilderness edition 'the lifted version, of the lifted version, of the standard'. With 'Overlanding' being the hottest automotive trend right now, it isn't any surprise Subaru would produce a lifted Outback - enthusiasts have been lifting Subies for years after all.

Surprisingly, this Outback was caught in the wilds with little camouflage. The most obvious difference being the higher than high ride height, but it doesn't stop there. The wheels appear a bit smaller and it looks like there are some all-terrain tires. The grill and front fascia have some tweaks with the fog lights getting moved inside the lower grill.

Let's all hope a stronger suspension comes as standard - not just an appearance package with lift blocks and coil spring spacers. This might be a useful car if the formula is right. We've all known the prowess of a lifted Subaru, and finally, they've admitted it to us all - if the Wilderness package is any evidence.

Rumor has it the Outback will not be the only car to get the Wilderness package. The Crosstrek and Forester are all believed to be getting the same off-road treatment in the coming months.

    • Everything becomes cool at some point. Following the path to the next is near impossible - don’t even try.

  • I'd like to see them make a "wilderness" version of the STI, basically a full on rally car that you can buy from the dealer.

    • Not really. Few years ago wife wanted WRX. We took it for a test drive. It is a great car, but what really put us of is response. When you release clutch there is a moment of hesitation by car. Salesperson told us it because of AWD. Car is...

  • I still hanker after an Australian spec 2000 H6 Outback. Could have used the ground clearance on the unsealed road that ate the exhaust of my Falcon wagon.
