Subaru Outback Towing Capacity

Subaru Outback Towing Capacity Overview

The Subaru Outback has a towing capacity from 2700 lbs and 3500 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.
