Subaru Forester for sale in Bozeman, Montana

2018 Subaru Forester

If you're looking for a capable compact crossover that is affordable, ready to go wherever you want to adventure, and will keep you and your family safe in near any conditions, then you're in the right place. The Subaru Forester should fit your lifestyle nicely, thanks to an affordable $22,795 starting price, plenty of available trims and options, plus outstanding rugged capability.

Forester Style

Before we get too into details, allow us to say a few words about the style of this new Subaru crossover SUV. The Forester is, after all, a decidedly handsome car, thanks to a clean, aerodynamic design and tons of small design details. In true Subaru fashion, most of the design elements on new Forester SUVs, however, also serve a functional purpose. For example, alloy wheels on the 2.5i Premium, Limited, and Touring save weight. Roof rails, which come standard on Forester models that are 2.5i Premium or higher also add exterior flair, while allowing you to cart gear with you while you travel to your favorite outdoor adventure spots like Middle Cottonwood Trailhead and the Bridger Bowl.

Drivers who seek a more menacing-looking Subaru will appreciate the Black Edition package, available on Forester 2.5i Premium SUVs. This aestethic option outfits the Forester with 18-inch black wheels, a special black cloth, and faux-leather interior, and more.

Forester Performance

The Subaru Forester comes standard with a 2.5-liter DOHC 4-cylinder SUBARU BOXER™ engine with an Active Valve Control System (AVCS). You can also get a 2.0-liter DOHC Direct Injection Turbocharged (DIT) SUBARU BOXER® engine with Dual Active Valve Control System (DAVCS). While the base engine in the Forester is adequate for most drivers, drivers who are more concerned about performance will appreciate the 2.0T engine, which makes 250 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque.

Forester Technology and Safety

From available Subaru EyeSight® technology to plenty of standard safety features like Vehicle Dynamics Control (VDC), Brake Assist, and a rear-vision camera, the Forester is a supremely safe crossover SUV.
