2022 Subaru Forester Trim Differences in Beaverton, OR


If you're seeking out a tough, well-equipped vehicle that's safe and comfortable for everything from family hauling to adventures off the beaten path, there's no better choice than the 2022 Subaru Forester. This popular compact SUV is available in six exciting trim levels, and here's a guide to help you pick the best one for your needs.


The Forester may be the base trim, but it's certainly not basic. You'll receive an impressive lineup of EyeSight® Driver Assist Technology features, including a Pre-collision Braking System, Lane Departure and Sway Warning, Lane Keep Assist, and Adaptive Cruise Control. The Forester also come standard with STARLINK® Multimedia features like a 6.5-inch display, Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™, Bluetooth® connectivity, STARLINK® cloud-based apps, and SiriusXM®.

As with all Forester trims, this one features a 2.5-liter SUBARU BOXER® engine that generates 182 horsepower and 176 lb-ft of torque. Standard Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive gives you excellent traction, and 8.7 inches of ground clearance helps you go where other SUVs can't. Inside, the Forester grants 39.4 inches of rear legroom - plenty even for adults. It can also fit up to 76.1 cubic feet of cargo when the rear seats are folded down. 

Forester Premium

Take your Forester experience to the next level with Forester Premium. With this model, you and your passengers can enjoy convenient comforts like heated and power-adjustable front seats, keyless access with push-button start, and a folding rear armrest with dual cup holders. Forester Premium also comes equipped with 4G LTE Wi-Fi® capabilities so everyone can stay connected on the go. This trim gets an exterior upgrade, too, with a standard panoramic power moonroof, 17-inch alloy wheels, and roof rails with integrated tie-downs.

And standard Blind-Spot Detection with Lane Change Assist and Rear Cross-Traffic Alert helps you drive with even more confidence

Forester Wilderness™

The new Forester Wilderness™ builds on the Premium trim while equipping you for even more adventure. The raised suspension gives you 9.2 inches of ground clearance for tackling all-terrain conditions, the standard front skid plate and special bumpers keep the vehicle protected, and a 180-Degree Front-View Monitor improves visibility on the trail. The vehicle's unique Wilderness™ styling includes 17-inch matte black alloy wheels with Yokohama GEOLANDAR® all-terrain tires, Anodized Copper interior and exterior accents, and StarTex® water-repellent seats.
