Meet the 2022 Subaru Forester All-Wheel Drive SUV


Discover the 2022 Subaru Forester: A Great Choice for Rockford and Beloit Area Drivers

Offering comfortable accommodations, flexible cargo capacity, and a conveniently sized physical footprint, the 2022 Subaru Forester is an excellent choice for Beloit-area drivers seeking spacious versatility and city-friendly maneuverability. And with Subaru's signature adventure-ready capability, the Forester can go places other small SUVs can't.

Accommodations and Utility

Despite its "compact" crossover label, the Subaru Forester is impressively spacious. The inviting and modern cabin provides plenty of headroom and legroom, and nicely cushioned yet supportive seats for long-distance comfort. With all seats in use, Forester reserves 31 cubic feet for your groceries, luggage, or other gear. And when your adventures require more capacious carrying capacity, the 60/40-split second-row folds easily to expand the cargo area to 70.9 cubic feet (76.1 on base models).


Whether it's navigating your Rockford or Roscoe commute or cruising winding backroads, the Subaru Forester provides well-mannered handling and refined ride quality. If you're looking to explore beyond the asphalt, Forester is ready, with standard Symmetrical All-Wheel-Drive, 8.7 inches of ground clearance, and X-MODE® traction and hill-descent control. And for even more off-road capability, the all-new Wilderness trim level adds trail-tackling upgrades like Yokohama GEOLANDAR® all-terrain tires, an exclusive dual-function X-MODE system, a 180-degree Front View Monitor, and a suspension lift that elevates ground clearance to 9.2 inches.

Under the hood, Forester is powered by a 2.5-liter BOXER® engine that sends 182 horsepower and 176 pound-feet of torque to the wheels via the Lineartronic® continuously variable transmission.

Technology and Safety

With Subaru's Forester's STARLINK® Multimedia system, you can stay connected, listen to music, and get directions without distraction from the road. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone integration for easy access to hands-free calls and messages, Google and Apple Maps, streaming media, and more. Premium and higher trims feature 4G LTE Wi-Fi capability-a perfect complement to the available STARLINK® Entertainment Anywhere kit, which includes two Apple iPad® Wi-Fi models with OtterBox® Defender cases and two pairs of Harman Kardon® Bluetooth Headphones.

Forester also comes standard with EyeSight® driver-assistance technologies, providing an extra degree of safety and convenience. Features include:

  • Pre-Collision Braking and Throttle Management
  • Lane Departure and Sway Warning
  • Lane Keep Assist
  • Advanced Adaptive Cruise Control with Lane Centering
