2018 Subaru Forester Towing Capacity and Engine Specs

Into the Woods or on the Road, the Forester Performance Delivers

Forester 2.5i Specs

The standard 2.5L four-cylinder engine of the Forester delivers 175 hp and 174 lb-ft of torque while earning an EPA-estimated 32 highway and 26 city mpg.

Forester 2.0XT Specs

Upgrading to the 2.0L turbocharged engine gives the Forester a boost to 250 hp and 258 lb-ft of torque while remaining efficient at 27 highway and 23 city mpg.

Forester Towing Capacity

This Subaru is an SUV, and that means you should expect it to be able to pull some weight. The Forester towing capacity maxes out at 1,500 pounds, making it a smart choice for the occasional tower.

Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive

Nearly all new Subaru models come standard with Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive, giving you an edge on- and off-road and ensuring you're ready for a San Antonio deluge.

Discover the Subaru Forester Performance Firsthand

We can tell you about the 175 hp of the four-cylinder or the 250 hp of the turbo, detail what makes Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive unique, and provide you with the towing capacity, but at the end of the day, most drivers need to experience the 2018 Forester for themselves. Lucky for you, we have plenty of new Foresters in stock near Dallas at CertifiedPreowned.com.

Make the trip to our showroom and take a test drive of the Forester to see for yourself why we recommend it for drivers who need a work vehicle, a family vehicle, or a little of both.
