Subaru Forester Towing Capacity

Subaru Forester Towing Capacity Overview

The Subaru Forester has a towing capacity from 1500 lbs and 2400 lbs depending on the trim and model year.

All towing capacities are braked capacities. This means that the trailer being towed has a braking system installed to assist the vehicle braking system. The towing capacities for trailers without brakes will be much less. Confirm all towing capacities with the owner's manual.
