Like with the other models in our Queensbury dealership's lineup, the standard Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive system gives you high-end levels of traction and control when driving through wintery conditions around Fort Edward and Glens Falls. The available Wilderness Edition gives your Forester a slight lift and upgrades its towing capacity to a maximum 3,000 pounds.

Subaru Outback Performance Features

Like the Forester, the new Subaru Outback found here in Queensbury starts off with a 2.5-liter four-cylinder with 182 horsepower and the standard AWD system. But where the Outback can really shine is its optional turbocharged 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine that produces 260 horsepower with 277 pound-feet of torque. That engine is found with the Outback's higher trims, including its Wilderness Edition that provides extra ground clearance, special tires and equipment and more.

  • Forward collision mitigation
  • Adaptive cruise control
  • Lane departure warning
  • Lane keeping warning
  • Automatic high beams

In higher trims for both the Outback and Forester, you can add blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert and evasive steering assist, making these already safe SUVs even better for avoiding hazards out on the road.

Forester Interior and Features

Even with both of these SUVs offering similar dimensions, the Forester is slightly smaller, but still spacious inside where it counts. With a full set of five passengers in place, you'll have 28.9 cubic feet of cargo room, which expands to 74.2 cubic feet when seats are reclined. Meanwhile you'll have a full assortment of infotainment tech and other amenities, with higher trims of the Forester offering upgrades for leather upholstery, heated seats and steering wheel, and other conveniences you'll want to consider.
