Will Thule WingBar Evo Crossbars Fit a 2014 GMC Acadia and 2018 Subaru Forester?


Will this fit a 2014 GMC Acadia and 2018 Subaru Forester? Both have front to back bars. I’m looking to get a roof box that will fit both vehicles, and so far what I’m finding is that I’ll need to get a crossbar like the Thule TH711220 for this roof box to work with the vehicles.

The Thule Pulse Large Rooftop Cargo Box # TH615 fits round, square, aero, elliptical, and most factory crossbars. If you don't have crossbars on your vehicle, you can definitely use the Thule WingBar Evo Aero Crossbars # TH711220. The quality and design of the crossbars will definitely get the job done. In order to install these, you will need a fit kit (only needed if you have a "naked" roof) and a foot pack depending on what kinds of rails you have:

- Naked Roof:
- Thule Roof-Rack Fit Kit # THKIT1218
- Rapid Traverse Feet # TH480R

- Raised Rails:
- Rapid Crossroad Feet # TH450R

- Flushed Rails:
- Evo Flush Rail Feet # TH710601

The maximum crossbar dimensions for the cargo box are 3-5/16 inches wide x 1-1/2 inches tall. The Crossbar spread can be between 23-5/8 inches - 34-3/8 inches. As far as trunk clearance for the 2014 GMC Acadia and the 2018 Subaru Forester, the hatches can fully open with at least 46-3/8 inches between the front crossbar and the line where roof and hatch meet.
