Pricing / 2 Comments

The new Forester starts at $26,395.

For last year, Subaru's Forester got a major refresh. Subie also debuted a new, off-road-ready Wilderness trim for the 2022 model year. Now, we have pricing for this year's new Subaru Forester. The popular SUV will be offered in six trims for 2023: Base, Premium, Sport, Wilderness, Limited, and Touring.

The base trim Subaru Forester will start at $26,395. For this year, Subaru has also updated its EyeSight Driver Assist Technology, which now has better performance thanks to a wider field of view and updated software. In keeping with its safety-oriented leanings, Subaru will also include automatic emergency steering on models purchased with blind spot monitoring with lane keep assist and rear cross-traffic alert.

All of Subaru's Forester models will be powered by a 2.5-liter boxer four-cylinder paired to Subaru's own CVT spinning all four wheels. In this trim, the boxer will put out 182 horsepower and 176 lb-ft of torque. Base models come equipped with Subaru's 6.5-inch Starlink system with CarPlay and Android Auto integration. The base model will also come equipped with a multi-function display in the gauge cluster.

Buyers will also get two USB charge ports in the center console. An optional package adds 17-inch alloy wheels as well as roof rails with a 700-lb. static load limit. That package will run you $625 on top of the Forester's MSRP.

The Subaru Forester Premium will start at $29,395. This adds an all-weather package with heated seats and mirrors, and a windshield wiper de-icer. Buyers will also have a 10-way powered driver seat with lumbar, and 17-inch aluminum alloy wheels. The Premium Forester also has X-Mode with hill descent control. You'll find more leather in the Premium models as well, which now have a leather-wrapped wheel in addition to a single option package.

This $1,165 package includes more safety features like blind spot monitoring, lane change assist, rear cross-traffic alert, automatic emergency steering, two more USB ports in the rear center console, and a powered rear tailgate.

We've already covered the Forester Wilderness at length, so we'll stick to the highlights here. The link in the first paragraph will have more specifics. The Wilderness trim starts at $34,020 and adds new suspension components to net you 9.2 inches of ground clearance. On top of that, Wildnerness models get new wheels and Yokohama Geolandar tires. Subaru also updates the front fascia and adds Wilderness-specific gold accents.

The Forester Limited will start at $33,075 and comes will all the Premium's features and then some. Now, the Forester will come with a larger 8-inch display, exterior mirrors in matching body color, and dark gray accent trim around the fog lights. It also now has dual-zone automatic climate control and a leather shifter knob.

One option package can be had on the Limited, which adds reverse automatic braking, navigation, a Harmon Kardon sound system, and a heated steering wheel. That will run you $1,695.

The Forester range is topped off by the Touring trim, starting at $36,495. Every feature that we've discussed up until now is included in the Limited trim, save for the Wilderness' off-road specific looks and upgrades. On top of that, Subaru will include its DiverFocus Distraction Mitigation System. That adds gesture control so you can adjust settings like the temperature without having to look down.

Touring models come with 18-inch wheels in dark gray, chrome folding mirrors, and LED fog lights. Roof rails now have a silver finish, too. Inside you'll have your choice of black or brown leather, with a 10-way power driver's seat with memory function, an 8-way passenger seat, and heated rear seats. Subaru expects deliveries to begin this December.
