Subaru updated the Forester for 2022 with fresh style and interior refinements, and the SUV rolls into 2023 unchanged. Today, the automaker announced the vehicle’s pricing, which increased slightly over 2022.
The 2023 Subaru Forester has a starting price of $27,620 after destination, a $1,300 bump over the year before. The Forester Premium starts at $30,620, the Sport at $32,190, the Wilderness at $35,245, the Limited at $34,300, and the top Touring at $37,720. All prices include $1,225 for destination and delivery.
All Foresters come with a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine making 182 horsepower and 176 pound-feet of torque. A continuously variable transmission and all-wheel drive are the only options. Subaru says the powertrain can return up to 33 mpg on the highway and notes that the Forester can tow up to 1,500 pounds in standard form or up to 3,000 pounds in the Wilderness trim. Trailer Stability Assist comes standard.
Subaru equips a 6.5-inch touchscreen by default, which offers Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The entry-level display comes with Bluetooth, SiriusXM radio, USB inputs, and more. Higher trims are available with an 8-inch touchscreen, and top trims can be equipped with navigation. A Harman Kardon sound system and heated steering wheel are available.
The Forester picked up a Top Safety Pick + award in 2022, which will likely continue in 2023. Subaru fits a host of advanced safety equipment at no extra charge, which includes adaptive cruise control, automatic high beams, lane keeping assist, automatic emergency braking, forward collision warnings, and pre-collision throttle management. Blind spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alerts is available, and models equipped with the function come with automatic emergency steering, which uses sensors to help avoid collisions at speeds less than 50 mph.
