2017 Mitsubishi Outlander Overview
The 2017 Mitsubishi Outlander is finally available and Mitsubishi Motors is boasting about the new Outlander so much, that we are excited to share details with you. Here are a couple key features in the 2017 Mitsubishi Outlander.
A Quick Peek
The new 2017 Mitsubishi Outlander is available with super all-wheel control (S-AWC) on all trims (S-AWC is standard on the Outlander GT), a 7.0-inch smartphone link display with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, blind spot warning with rear cross traffic alert and lane change assist, 7-passenger seating, and a 9-speaker Rockford-Fosgate premium audio system.
The 2017 Outlander lineup consists of four trims, all riding on 18-inch aluminum alloy wheels and all with front dual-zone climate control. The goods don’t stop there though.
Engine and Fuel Economy
The base trim, Outlander ES, along with the Outlander SE and SEL trims are powered by a 2.4-liter MIVEC 4-cylinder engine. We discussed Mitsubishi’s special systems last week, and MIVEC is one of the most notable, along with its RISE body construction. The 2.4-liter MIVEC engine generates 166-horsepower and 162 lb-ft of torque, and it has an average fuel economy of 25 mpg in the city and 30 mpg on the highway.
The Outlander GT S-AWC trim is powered by a 3.0-liter MIVEC SOHC 24-valve V6 engine, putting out 224-horsepower and 215 lb-ft of torque, with an average fuel economy of 20/27 MPG city/highway.
Standard on the outside of the Outlander is auto-off headlights, LED positioning lights, heated power side-view mirrors, rear window intermittent wipers, and rear privacy glass, to name a few.
The inside is, as usual, where the real game begins. Standard is the 6.1-inch color touchscreen display, an instrument panel, ECO indicator light, seven-passenger seating with three rows, a 60/40 split-fold second row, a 50/50 flat fold third row, rear heater floor ducts, a leather wrapped steering wheel and shifter knob, front dual-zone automatic climate control, and more.
For convenience and entertainment, there is Digital HD radio, a Hands-Free Link System with Bluetooth tech, and other systems. With convenience in mind, there’s always cruise control, a rearview camera, steering wheel mounted controls, an ECO mode switch so save energy, cargo tie-down utility hooks, the list goes on.
Safety and Security
Mitsubishi has an advanced dual-stage SRS front airbag system with a total of seven airbags in the vehicle (including a drivers knee airbag), several types of vehicle control including active stability and traction control, an anti-theft engine immobilizer, and a tire pressure monitoring system. Systems like adaptive cruise control, forward collision mitigation, blind spot warning*, and lane departure warning come as options on the Outlander SEL and GT trims.
Seems the 2017 Mitsubishi Outlander is shaping up for the 2017 model-year. Are you planning on taking this crossover for a test drive? You can do so at University Mitsubishi seven days a week!
