2022 Subaru Forester Towing Features & Technology

Now that you know how much a 2022 Subaru Forester can tow and what a Subaru Forester can tow, let's look at its standard and available towing features. In addition to providing Tampa drivers with exceptional towing capacity, the 2022 Subaru Forester also includes a number of technologies that help make towing smoother, simpler, and safer. Take a look at some of its performance technologies below: 

  • 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. 
  • Vehicle Dynamics Control (VDC): 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. 
  • Active Torque Vectoring: Paired with VDC, this technology works to sharpen turning, increase cornering limits, and create neutral steering.
  • Traction Control: 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. 
  • X-MODE®: This technology is available on higher trim levels 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. 
  • Hill Descent Control: This system helps you maintain a constant speed when descending hills, which is especially useful when trailering.
