For the second straight year, Subaru Outback Wilderness and Forester Wilderness customers will get to drive the vehicles into their natural habitat through the brand’s partnership with Parks Canada.
Buyers of the above two products receive family/group Parks Canada Discovery Passes allowing visits to over 80 national parks, historic sites and marine conservation areas, spanning some 450,000 kilometres, for a full year serving as a gateway to learning about the country’s vast nature and history.
Wilderness trims are built for the rugged outdoors, adding additional ground clearance and an enhanced X-MODE function that works together with the engine, transmission, brakes and all-wheel drive system further optimizing driving dynamics for challenging surface conditions.
2023 Chevrolet Colorado ZR2
Chevy’s third-generation high-performance mid-size truck isn’t slated for its debut until July 28, but GM has posted a 24-second teaser showing a few close-up shots of the racy pickup.
The front and rear fascias appear to be reshaped, with a few cool details like a “Safari” bull bar mounted in front of the fresh grille showcasing a Bow Tie emblem and a set of fog lights underneath. A new tailgate design features body colour Chevrolet branding spelled out inside a contrast black rectangular inset.
There’s not a whole lot to go of of from the brief zoomed-in views of the interior other than a quick look at a different instrument cluster shroud. Check out the video on YouTube.
