A Subaru Outback is just as natural parked by a million-dollar beach home in Connecticut as it is traversing a campsite in Mount Hood. Most owners, no matter where they live or how much they make, prefer the Outback’s practicality, comfort, and affordable cost over a rock-biting, trailblazing hell of a time. The Outback Wilderness is the opposite. This is Subaru’s version of a Raptor—lifted and factory-kitted to tackle more abuse on tough terrain. We drove one near all those pretty Connecticut homes, and while the Wilderness may seem like an appearance package, it’s entirely purposeful.
