2025 Subaru Outback Pricing And Model Guide Is Here With An Asterisk

Subaru announced pricing on the 2025 Outback. Check out the new midsize SUV here. We have to put an asterisk next to the “new” Outback. 

Subaru of America announced pricing on the 2025 Outback midsize SUV. What’s new on the 2025 Outback? There is an asterisk by the “new” 2025 Outback because, for the 2025 model year, it’s a carry-over model with few changes except for some minor trim adjustments on the Limited model. 

Outback customers will have to wait another year for the next-generation model. Keep reading, and I’ll explain why. First, here are the pricing details and 2025 model highlights.

What Is The 2025 Outback Pricing?

For the 2025 model year, the Outback will be available in nine trim levels. The Base is priced at $30,290, Premium ($32,590), Onyx Edition ($37,500), Limited ($39,250), Touring ($41,740), Onyx Edition XT ($40,755), Wilderness ($41,355), Limited XT ($41,590), and Touring XT ($44,190). In addition, destination and delivery fees are included in the price above ($1,395).

How much did the 2025 Outback price increase?

Only one trim level increased in price. The Outback Limited increased +$2,160. A power moonroof, DriverFocus Distraction Mitigation System, navigation, and a 360-degree heated steering wheel are now standard on Limited trims.

However, destination and delivery fees increased by $100 on all 2025 Outback trims. 

2025 Subaru Outback Highlights

1. Subaru’s EyeSight Driver Assist Technology is standard on all Outback trim levels.

2. The 2025 Outback comes with the Subaru Starlink 11.6-inch Multimedia Plus system for infotainment, including standard wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility with a full-screen display. 

3. The 2025 Subaru Outback offers SUV capability with a car-like ride and all-weather capability with standard Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive. 

4. Outback also comes with X-Mode for severe weather and dual-function X-Mode for all-terrain capability.  

5. 2025 Outback has 8.7 inches of ground clearance (9.5 inches for the Outback Wilderness) 

6. Outback gets the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety TOP SAFETY PICK award.

7. Non-XT trim levels are equipped with a 2.5-liter Boxer engine that produces 182 horsepower and 176 pound-feet of torque. Outback Wilderness and XT trim levels have a 2.4-liter turbocharged BOXER engine that makes 260 hp and 277 lb.-ft. 

8. All Outback models have a standard Lineartronic Continuously Variable Transmission with 8-speed manual shift mode and steering wheel paddle shift control switches.

9. The 2025 Outback Wilderness offers off-pavement capability with 9.5 inches of ground clearance thanks to longer front and rear shock absorbers with increased suspension travel. 

10. The Outback Wilderness is powered exclusively by the 2.4-liter turbocharged engine and includes:

  • A Hands-Free Power Gate.
  • 180-Degree Front View Monitor.
  • Dual-function X-Mode with low-speed/low-gradient control.
  • Yokohama Geolander all-terrain tires.
  • StarTex interior upholstery.
  • Harman Kardon premium audio.
  • Unique exterior and interior accents.

When will Subaru launch the next-generation Outback?

As I reported recently, Subaru of America has delayed the next-generation Outback launch until the 2026 model year. So, I would say it's another year away from making its dealer launch. 

When will customers see the next-generation Outback Wilderness?

The next-generation Outback Wilderness could be two years away as a 2027 model. Subaru chose to wait one extra year to upgrade the Forester Wilderness, which will now be a 2026 model year. They will likely do the same with the Outback Wilderness. 

When will Subaru launch a new Outback Hybrid?

I’ve heard that the Outback Hybrid is also on the drawing board. The seventh-generation Outback will get a new Hybrid trim level, but like the Forester Hybrid, it will also arrive one year after the next-generation 2026 Outback. So, the Outback Hybrid will make its reveal sometime in early 2027.
