2018 Subaru Forester Receives Updated Pricing, Black Edition Package

Most prices see only minor price bumps

In preparation for the shift over to the new model year, Subaru released pricing information and a new appearance package for the 2018 Forester crossover. For buyers looking to make their Forester even more subtle than usual, a new Black Edition package available for the 2.5i Premium adds darkened affects to the popular SUV.

The Black Edition is mostly what you would expect – blacked-out trim pieces with a black interior. Black Edition Foresters ride on dark 18-inch wheels, complimented by black exterior badging, mirror caps, foglight surrounds, and a blacked-out grille insert.

Inside, Black Edition Foresters arrive with black upholstery. Leather covers the steering wheel and shifter, while the seat bolsters are swaddled in faux-leather material. Surprisingly, the Black Edition also adds shift paddles on the steering wheel, a feature that was only offered on the big-boy Forester 2.0XT.

For 2018, pricing also jumps up a touch. From the Forester 2.5i ($23,710) to the 2.5i Limited ($30,310), prices only scooch up by an additional $240. Thanks to now including reverse automatic braking and high-beam assist as standard, the 2.5i Touring ($34,005) received a price boost of $1,835.

2018 Subaru Foresters arrive at U.S. dealers later this summer.
