Your adventures in Norman, Moore, and Oklahoma City, Oklahoma will be better with the Subaru Forester on your side.

Our team at Cavender Subaru of Norman knows that you'll love the comfort and capability that you'll experience with the Forester.

2023 Forester Engineering

At the heart of every Subaru is mechanical design that is built to overcome. It all starts with the 2.5L Subaru BOXER® engine, which unleashes 182 horsepower and 176 lb-ft of torque. This power will help you handle whatever stands in your way both on and off the road, and it's harnessed by the smooth and seamless gear changes of the Lineartronic® Continuously Variable Transmission System.

The Subaru Forester also comes standard with Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive, a dynamic drivetrain that adjusts power sent to each wheel as needed. It's excellent for slick conditions, dirt paths, and other tricky terrain. The available X-MODE further enhances this performance by optimizing the engine output to reduce wheelspin and increase control.

Subaru Forester Interior Dimensions

Having enough space to hold your gear is important when you embark on a new adventure. Your passengers will appreciate having enough space to stretch out as well. Thankfully, the Forester has a cabin that is spacious enough to do it all.

The 111.6 cubic feet of passenger volume gives plenty of room to stretch out and get comfy. This is highlighted by up to 39.6 inches of headroom in the back row, and you'll enjoy 43.3 inches of legroom up front.

You can pack away all the cargo you need in the Forester, from weekly grocery runs to luggage on your vacation. The trunk area has 28.9 cubic feet of cargo volume to store your everyday things. Fold down the rear seat and you can maximize your cargo capacity to 74.2 cubic feet.

2023 Subaru Forester Safety Technology

While you're out on the road, you'll be kept protected by the advanced driver-assistive features in the Subaru Forester. EyeSight® technology is a suite of systems that work together to anticipate and help minimize the effects of those unexpected moments.

Some of the EyeSight® technologies include:

  • Pre-Collision Braking
  • Lane Departure and Sway Warning
  • Advanced Adaptive Cruise Control
