The New Subaru Forester Wilderness Upgrades You Want And Can Have Now

Do you want a 2022 Subaru Forester Wilderness with more attitude and altitude? Check out the Forester Wilderness lifted by LP Aventure.


The Subaru Forester Wilderness is rugged from the factory, but LP Aventure gives the new compact SUV even more attitude and altitude. The most adventurous customers in North America who want more attitude for their new 2022 Subaru Forester Wilderness with the most aggressive nature will want what LP Aventure in Quebec, Canada offers.

They have produced a new lift kit for the Wilderness trim level, giving it a more aggressive stance for more extreme off-road pursuits. The LP Aventure Forester Wilderness is pictured with LP Aventure's 18-inch LP7 wheels wrapped in 255/55R18 BF Goodrich K02's, a 2-inch Lift Kit, Hood Light Brackets, and Axle-Back.

You can raise the altitude of your Forester with the kit and won't need to worry about scraping the lower body while traveling through scrub brush, a river, or a rocky trail.

Does lifting your Forester affect its rollover safety?

Lifting your all-wheel-drive vehicle can change the electronic stability control (ESC) dynamics and increase the risk of a rollover crash if the driver engages in an evasive lane-change maneuver at highway speeds and can lose control. How do you know if your lifted vehicle still complies with the integrity of the original design from the factory?

LP Aventure says they test their off-road packages to comply with the NHTSA and its FMVSS126 Federal Motor Vehicle safety standard. LP Aventure collaborates with PMG at its test and research center, testing its lift kit packages on Subaru models like the Forester, Outback, and Crosstrek.

Forester Wilderness gets dual-function X-Mode

The Wilderness trim level comes with the automaker's Dual-Function X-Mode. The off-road system changes the SUV's brakes by locking up one wheel if it senses it spinning. The system knows it needs extra grip instead of letting the wheel spin. The new Wilderness also comes with Hill Descent Control. It ensures the SUV's speed doesn't increase when descending a hill, managing the braking to provide a controlled, smooth and safe descent.

Subaru infused the new Forester Wilderness with more attitude and the spirit that made the Subaru brand successful in the beginning. LP Aventure gives Forester more attitude and altitude with its Wilderness kit.

If you don't live in Canada, LP Adventure has distributors in 16 U.S. states where you can get Forester Wilderness lift kits. They also have kits ready for the Outback, Crosstrek, and Ascent. You can find a U.S. distributor or order your kit here.

The pics make this look like the Sepia Bronze Metallic. I wish Subaru had more color options for the Wilderness and Sport trims. Cascade Green Wilderness would be *Chef's Kiss*

Curious. I had a 2019 Forester Sport that I had lifted and in order to put 245\65\r16 k02 tires on it they had to cut large portions of the plastic in the wheel well out. Even after removing some of this plastic the tires still made contact with the wheel well. For the lift in this article, were there any modifications to the wheel well? Did they also have to cut plastic out of the wheel well in order to fit the 255/55/r18 tires? If not, do the tires make contact with any part of the wheel well while turning? I have a 22 Forester wilderness now and I'm not sure about lifting it due the issue with my 2019.
