2024 Subaru Forester Towing Capacity & Engine Specs

The 2024 Subaru Forester is offered in 6 supreme trim levels for Upper Arlington drivers to choose from, and all 6 feature the same SUBARU BOXER® engine. However, the Subaru Forester Wilderness configuration takes the cake in towing capacity, with a full 3,000 pounds towing capacity compared to all other trims’ 1,500 pounds. Below, we review the engine in these SUVs to show how it can achieve incredible Forester towing capacity:

  • 2.5L SUBARU BOXER® 4-cylinder engine with Dual Active Valve Control System (DAVCS)
  • Lineartronic® CVT (Continuously Variable Transmission) with Adaptive Control and 7-speed (2024 Forester Sport / Limited / Touring) or 8-speed (Forester Wilderness) manual mode
  • EPA-estimated fuel economy: 26 mpg city / 33 mpg highway (25 mpg city / 28 mpg highway for 2024 Forester Wilderness)
  • 182 hp @ 5,800 rpm and 176 lb-ft of torque @ 4,400 rpm

2024 Subaru Forester Towing Features & Technology

While a 3,000-pound Subaru Forester towing capacity is impressive, the Forester also carries several towing features to make hauls even easier in Powell and the surrounding area. Take a look at the Subaru towing and performance technologies below:

  • Vehicle Dynamics Control: This system monitors brake pressure, steering angle, and wheel speed. If it senses you’ve strayed off course, it will reduce torque, apply brake pressure, and attempt to set your vehicle back on course.
  • Trailer Stability Assist: This system monitors the road for unsafe conditions and applies specific brake pressure to different axles of your trailer to keep it from swaying.
  • Traction Control System: This system is similar to Trailer Stability Assist. It monitors the wheel slippage of your Forester’s axles and modifies torque and brake pressure to improve traction.
  • Hill Descent Control: This available system helps you maintain a constant speed when descending hills, which is especially useful when trailering.
  • X-MODE®: This technology is standard on all trim levels above Forester Base and features different drive modes that allow you to modify the handling of your vehicle to best adapt to the conditions of the roads ahead.
  • Active Torque Vectoring: Paired with VDC, this technology works to sharpen turning, increase cornering limits, and create neutral steering.
