Subaru Forester 2024 Colors, Price, Release Date – The 2024 Subaru Forester is one of America’s most popular compact crossover SUVs, thanks to its long history of dependability and all-wheel-drive security. Other compact crossover SUV segment options include the Toyota RAV4 and Mazda CX-5, but Forester models have long outperformed their competitors. The basic recipe of a 2.5-liter naturally aspirated boxer-four engine with 182 horsepower and 176 lb-ft of torque remains the same. So does the continuously variable transmission, which makes this car easy to live with in traffic and on the trail, thanks to its good ground clearance and all-weather grip.
The Forester is modestly furnished, with a wagon body with unique accents like brown-butter leather in touring models and Fila-Esque trim in sports models. The Wilderness trim level joins the base, Premium, Sport, Limited, and Touring editions in the Subaru lineup. More grilles have been added to the front end, and some models come with complimentary automated emergency steering. Aside from that, one of our most highly rated family vehicles and a previous two-time Best Car to Buy winner hasn’t altered much.
Subaru Forester 2024 Redesign
Because it receives some exterior stylistic upgrades, the 2024 Subaru Forester appears slightly different from the 2021 model. It also gets the Wilderness trim, a new addition to the trim roster. This new Forester boasts slightly greater ground clearance than previous versions, as well as a forward-facing off-road camera, all-terrain tires, and water-repellent upholstery, making it the greatest off-roader in the lineup. In addition, the Wilderness can tow more than any other forester trim. The reworked front end of the 2024 standard, which includes a new, sharper grille, bumpers, and headlights, is the most noticeable alteration. There are also new wheel designs. A panoramic sunroof is now expected on all trim levels save the base model, and gesture controls for climate control are now available as an option. A brighter new LED dome light (with off-delay) and LED lighting in the cargo area have been added to the basic trim’s interior lighting. New 12.4-inch front brake discs have been added to the Premium trim’s braking system, and new gloss-black window moldings have been added to the Touring trim.
There are four no-cost color options for the base Forester, down from six last year. The colors in question are Crystal White Pearl, Cascade Green Silica, Horizon Blue Pearl, and Magnetite Gray Metallic. This trim no longer has Ice Silver Metallic or Crystal Black Silica. Still, the Premium, Limited, and Touring do, along with Autumn Green, Brilliant Bronze, Crimson Red Pearl, and Horizon Blue Pearl. Crystal Black, Crystal White, Ice Silver, Magnetite Gray, and Dark Blue Pearl are the only colors available on the Sport model. The new Wilderness largely mirrors the Sport’s options, with the addition of Autumn Green and the replacement of Dark Blue Pearl with Geyser Blue, a color only available on this trim. Sepia Bronze and Jasper Green are two metallics that have been discontinued this year. The two blue tones are our favorites, but the crimson red is also a great choice.
The Subaru Forester SUV’s interior is a pleasant place to be, with the high build quality, ample space, and high-quality materials. With its forms and stitching, the dash is positively appealing, but Subaru hasn’t overlooked ergonomics, placing all controls within comfortable reach of the driver. Large windows also provide good vision, emphasizing Forester’s meticulous attention to detail and devotion to ensuring a safe crossover. Sure, some inferior materials are strewn about, and there isn’t a sizeable digital driver’s display like most cars are starting to provide. Still, for the Subaru Forester’s price, we’re incredibly pleased with what we get.
The 2.5L four-cylinder engine and continuously variable automatic transmission remain standard in the 2024 Forester (CVT). The Forester accelerated from 0-60 mph in 8.5 seconds with AWD as standard. On the highway, the four-cylinder engine produces 184 horsepower and 176 pound-feet of torque, but it seems inadequate. It isn’t designed to perform; instead, it is designed to get you from point A to point B, which it accomplishes admirably; when you press your foot flat on the pedal, the engine screams, which isn’t reflected in the real-time acceleration.
This SUV’s driving dynamics are settled. The steering responsiveness is good but nothing to brag about. Subaru claims that unique dampening material has been fitted on the glass and interior and that the wind bluster on the highway has been dramatically reduced. The suspension is soft, which is appropriate for a family vehicle, but Subaru might have done better with the damping. The SUV successfully sucks all the bumps on bad roads but bottoms out quickly on severe bumps or craters.
Subaru Forester 2024 Price and Release Date
The Subaru Forester’s base model starts at $25,195, including a $1,125 destination fee. The Forester Premium is priced at $28,195, while the Sport is priced at $29,765. The standard MSRP for the Limited trim is $31,895, the new Wilderness is $32,820, and the highest touring variation is $35,295. When equipped with all available options, a fully loaded model will cost around $38,000, which isn’t terrible considering how much the base model costs.
Subaru unveiled the 2024 Forester (facelift) to the rest of the world in June 2021, and the model was announced in the United States in September. The 2024 Forester, which features improved aesthetics, safety, and other features, was scheduled to arrive in U.S. dealerships in October 2021, so it should be available now.
