Subaru Australia Eyes Wilderness Variants: What to Expect

Subaru Australia Eyes Wilderness Variants: What to Expect banner

Subaru enthusiasts Down Under have reason to get excited as Subaru Australia reaffirms its interest in introducing off-road-focused Wilderness variants of popular models like the Crosstrek, Outback, and Forester. While the prospect of these rugged versions hitting Australian shores is promising, it seems likely that enthusiasts will have to wait until the next-generation models roll out.

At the local launch of the Subaru Solterra electric car, Subaru Australia managing director Blair Read shed light on the brand's plans, stating, "[We're] very keen to have Wilderness. We've been working on [these models] for a while now." However, due to the complexities of model launch timings and industry challenges, the Wilderness variants may debut alongside the next-generation models.

For eager fans, this means that a Wilderness version of the Forester might not arrive until 2025 at the earliest, aligning with the anticipated release of the next-generation Forester in Australian showrooms. But what exactly can enthusiasts expect from these off-road-focused variants?

Typically, the Wilderness treatment involves enhancing a Subaru's off-road capabilities by increasing ride height for additional ground clearance, fitting all-terrain tires, incorporating unique alloy wheels, and adding extra body protection. These modifications are designed to tackle rugged terrain with confidence while maintaining Subaru's legendary reliability and performance.

Although Subaru Wilderness editions have been exclusive to the North American market since their introduction nearly three years ago, they have been on Subaru Australia's radar since their unveiling in 2021. While it may be unlikely that current-generation Wilderness vehicles will make their way to Australia, enthusiasts can rest assured that Subaru is committed to delivering these exciting variants in the future.

As for which model will receive the Wilderness treatment first, all signs point to the next-generation 2025 Forester. While the Crosstrek recently entered a new generation and the Outback is not due for a refresh for a few years, Subaru fans can anticipate a thrilling lineup of off-road-ready vehicles in the years to come.
