Subaru Forester Towing Capacity and Engine Specs

Whether you're towing a camper or an ATV trailer, you can count on the Forester to have your back thanks to its maximum towing capacity of 1,500 pounds when properly equipped.

The full-bodied piece of machinery that makes this possible is a 2.5-liter DOHC direct-injection aluminum-alloy engine with four robust cylinders. This translates to a maximum output of 182 horsepower and 176 lb-ft of torque that will make it easy to go up hills and pass other drivers.  

Useful Subaru Forester Features

There are several features that will come in handy when you use the Forester for towing. For example, there's Trailer Stability Assist. This standard aspect of the Subaru Forester can detect any swerving and automatically apply the brakes to help maintain control.

There's also the available Hill Descent Control. This feature makes it possible to maintain a controllable speed when going down a steep hill. The available X-MODE® is likely to come in handy as well. This feature enhances engine output to decrease individual wheelspin for optimal traction while you're traveling on low-friction surfaces.

Safety Characteristics of the Subaru Forester

The safety features you'll find in the Forester will supply you with plenty of confidence while you're behind the wheel. Whether or not you're towing, the standard EyeSight® Driver Assist Technology is a valuable set of features.

Some of its attributes include the Pre-collision Braking System that can help you avoid a potential collision or minimize its effects. There's also Lane Departure and Sway Warning that alerts you when you've unintentionally drifted into a neighboring lane.

Advanced Adaptive Cruise Control with Lane Centering is also part of the EyeSight® Driver Assist Technology. This feature monitors the flow of traffic and can adjust your speed to maintain a consistent, safe distance between you and the vehicle ahead.
