What Is the 2022 Subaru Outback?
The Subaru Outback is a five-seat mid-size wagon with SUV-inspired styling, standard all-wheel drive and two available engines. The base motor is a 182-horsepower, 2.5-liter four-cylinder, and a 260-hp, turbocharged 2.4-liter four-cylinder is optional. Both engines pair with a continuously variable automatic transmission. Outback competitors include the Volvo V60 Cross Country and the Audi A4 Allroad.  

The Subaru Outback offers 19.6 cubic feet of cargo space behind its backseat, according to Cars.com’s cargo measurements.

What’s New on the 2022 Subaru Outback?
A new Wilderness trim level increases the Outback’s off-road capability with nearly an extra inch of ground clearance, a retuned suspension, all-terrain tires and unique design cues. Other changes include newly standard LED foglights, plus vents in the back of the center console on the Premium trim.
