If you are interested in a Subaru Wilderness Edition, you need to decide then which SUV better suits your needs. So, will it be the Subaru Outback, the Subaru Crosstrek, or the Subaru Forester? While each is an excellent choice, only one can earn that coveted spot in your Lake Wales driveway. While Subaru Wilderness models are currently available for the Outback and Forester, those who are interested in the Crosstrek will likely need to wait for the 2024 model. Explore your options more in-depth below.
