The Subaru Forester is the Japanese automaker's most important model, according to Subaru Corporation. The Japanese automaker will bring a special edition 2024 Forester to the Japan Mobility Show from October 27 to November 5, 2023. They call the Forester its "Global Strategic Vehicle."
I have written much about the next-generation Forester and what's next for the compact SUV. Subaru Corporation has yet to release any information about the new model, which is typical. The Japanese automaker keeps the information about new models quiet, and no details have leaked.
The 2024 Subaru Forester special edition model will be uncovered at the Subaru press conference on Wednesday, October 25. Subaru will also bring a new electric Sport Concept I covered previously. You can read more about the new electric coupe here.
2024 Subaru Forester special edition model
The 2024 Subaru Forester special edition model is the last before the next-generation Forester is introduced sometime next year. As I have said before, the Forester will get a complete remodel from the ground up in 2025. Subaru chose to wait another year to bring out the next-generation model. The 2024 Forester is a carry-over model for all global customers.
Here is what Subaru said about the 2024 special edition model.
"It has packaging that combines ease of handling and interior space and features easy-to-use equipment so that all passengers can enjoy and share a comfortable space. This is Subaru's global strategic vehicle that expresses a design that is unique to the world. This special edition model is equipped with special equipment to encourage customers to take on the challenge of outdoor adventures."
Forester is Subaru's strategic global vehicle.
The Forester is Subaru's global strategic vehicle, and they know they have to get the all-new 2025 model right. It's why they waited another year to reveal the new compact SUV. The all-new Forester will be carefully designed and planned to serve a specific purpose or advantage in its all-wheel-drive lineup.
The Forester has slipped in the U.S., Subaru's number one global market and the Japanese automaker needs to move the compact SUV back to its number one selling status.
The new Forester will bring significant upgrades in technology and safety. We don't know if the Forester will get new engine upgrades with a hybrid powertrain or a 2.4-liter turbocharged Forester Wilderness. It's speculation at this point.
Before the 2025 Forester is announced, the 2024 Subaru Forester special edition is scheduled to arrive this fall in Japan, and it won't be coming to the U.S. market. The special edition Forester may be a version of the 2024 Forester Wilderness sold in North America. I will cover the show reveal, so stay tuned.
