Subaru Forester Unshaken In The Presence Of Ford Raptor, Jeep Wrangler

By  | 

When we talk about off-roading, the Subaru Forester is unlikely to become the first vehicle to appear in your head. This cannot be helped as the Forester is rarely viewed as a serious off-roader and this is due to the vehicle lacking a pure 4WD setup.

When compared to the Ford F-150 Raptor or the Jeep Wrangler, the Forester is barely an afterthought in the off-road realm and the situation is even worse if we are to talk about an old Forester instead of the latest model.

As such, it came to our surprise when an early-2000s Subaru Forester that runs on stock AWD and powertrain is able to create an upset at a major off-roading event located here in the US.

The event requires every participating vehicle to climb a steep and sandy hill and the Forester completed the task without breaking a sweat. The result of the contest saw the Forester only losing to the Jeep Wrangler and the Ford Raptor by a narrow margin.

Perhaps, this is an indication on how great the AWD setup from Subaru truly is and it fully deserves our praises.
