Subaru is introducing a refreshed Outback with more technology for 2023. All models except for the Wilderness sport a new grille and extra body cladding. An Outback Onyx joins the lineup with various black accents, green stitching inside and additional amenities. Subaru’s EyeSight safety system has been enhanced with greater detection capability. Engine selection is unchanged, mind you, so you either get 182 horsepower or 260 horsepower.
