subaru has announced a full price list for the 2022 legacy and outback, which are getting a few new features with prices that remain the same or have increased by $100 or less, depending on trim level. in 2021, subaru added steering-responsive led headlights, and this year it also gives every outback standard led fog lights. on the legacy, it makes 17-inch black-finished aluminum wheels standard on the base model. in 2021, they were a $350 option. both 2022 models will arrive at dealerships this summer, subaru said.
the 2022 legacy sedan comes in six trim levels, all with eyesight driver-assist technology and all-wheel drive as standard. the base, premium, sport, and limited models have a 182-hp 2.5-liter boxer-four engine teamed with a continuously variable automatic transmission (cvt) and all-wheel drive. their prices range from $23,955 for the base model to $30,905 for the limited. the more energetic limited xt ($35,455) and touring xt ($37,155) have a 260-hp turbocharged 2.4-liter engine, also paired with a cvt.
there are only three option packages on the 2022 legacy. the first adds blind-spot detection with rear cross-traffic alert, push-button start, keyless entry, and led fog lights ($1000), while a second adds a power sunroof and an 11.6-inch touchscreen with navigation, an improvement over the standard 7.0-inch touchscreen ($2595). the third package, which is also available on the outback, includes a heated steering wheel, subaru's driver focus distraction alert system, the nav screen, and the sunroof ($2045).
the 2022 outback is interesting because of the newly revealed upper trim level called the wilderness, which is priced at $38,120. its features are based on those of the onyx edition xt ($36,270), which includes a hands-free power tailgate, a 180-degree front-view camera, and a full-size spare matching the wilderness's yokohama geolandar all-terrain tires, and subaru's dual-function x-mode with hill-descent control. the wilderness differs with its higher ground clearance, at 9.5 inches versus the regular outback's 8.7 inches, plus special suspension tuning to make it more rugged and model-specific cosmetic touches inside and out.
the outback comes with a 2.5-liter boxer-four making 182 horsepower, with a 260-hp turbo on the wilderness and the top limited xt and touring xt models. there are now eight trim levels from the base outback at $28,070 through the touring xt at $41,070. the base model has subaru's eyesight driver-asssist technology with adaptive cruise control, apple carplay and android auto capability with the standard 7.0-inch touchscreen, and a rearview camera as standard. four option packages range from $1400 to $2045 and add features including blind-spot detection with rear cross-traffic alert, rear automated emergency braking, a hands-free power tailgate, keyless access with push-button start, an 11.6-inch navigation screen, and a power moonroof.
subaru said the two 2022 models will be available at dealerships this summer.
