Choose the Adventure that Best Fits You - Subaru Outback vs. Outback Onyx vs. Outback Wilderness

The beauty of most lineups is that you can choose the trim level that best suits your needs, lifestyle, and preferences. With models like the Subaru Outback, you know you will get an off-road SUV styled with the latest conveniences and safety features to assist your daily drive. However, choosing the perfect fit from the lineup can often be challenging. At Ciocca Subaru of Philadelphia, we want to help you find the perfect fit. In the Subaru Outback lineup, that can mean choosing from a variety of trim configurations with different purposes. From the Subaru Outback Base to options like the supremely-equipped Outback Onyx Edition and the off-road warrior Outback Wilderness, there's a way to enjoy a unique drive for every person.

With plenty of power, comfort, and capability, the Subaru Outback lineup has a model for every driver. Take a look at what each trim level does well below, and let us know how we can help you get behind the wheel of the one that suits you best.

What Advantages Does the Subaru Outback Base Offer?

If you're looking for a budget-friendly option that won't skimp on the available features, the Subaru Outback Base is the most affordable option in the lineup. Under the hood, you'll find a 2.5-liter SUBARU BOXER® Powertrain, making 182 horsepower and 176 pound-feet of torque. Pushing the Outback over slick road conditions and off-road adventures is the standard Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive system, which pairs with the X-MODE® features to improve engine output and refine engine engagement over low friction surfaces. The Base model twos up to 2,700 pounds and clears obstacles with 8.7-inches of ground clearance. With standard features that include 17-inch aluminum-alloy wheels, you'll drive confidently anywhere your adventures take you.

What Advantages Does the Subaru Outback Onyx Edition Offer?

If you're looking for a bit more capability from your SUV, the Outback Onyx Edition offers improved performance over the Base model. With the Onyx Edition, you'll get a standard 2.4-liter turbocharged SUBARU BOXER® engine, delivering 260 horsepower and 277 pound-feet of torque. With the more powerful engine, you'll have better towing capacity - the Onyx Edition manages to haul up to 3,500 pounds of attached trailer weight.

While the Subaru Outback Onyx Edition models won't equip a specialized version of the AWD system, you will get an upgrade to the X-MODE® features. This Outback trim offers a dual-function X-MODE® with Snow/Dirt and Deep Snow/Mud modes for rougher road situations. The Outback Onyx Edition also equips 18-inch aluminum-alloy wheels for better road performance.

What Advantages Does the Subaru Outback Wilderness Edition Offer?

New for the 2022 model year, the Outback Wilderness showcases its off-road prowess with improved features and upgrades over the previous two models. This rugged Outback makes short work of obstacles with 9.5-inches of ground clearance and improved approach and departure angles.

The Wilderness shares a powertrain with the Onyx Edition model while also towing up to 3,500 pounds. The lineup equips Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive and X-MODE® with the latter feature boasting a dual-function setting to handle Snow/Dirt and Deep Snow/Mud and low- and medium-to-high speed functionality for better control. The off-road warrior equips all-terrain 17-inch aluminum-alloy wheels with a matte black finish for a unique look all its own. The lineup even features upgraded roof rails, supporting up to 700 pounds of weight when parked!
