2017 outlander
While Mitsubishi reduced their lineup in 2015 by ending production on the Mitsubishi Lancer EVO, they added to the 2017 lineup by adding the all-new Mitsubishi Mirage G4 and redesigning the Mitsubishi i-Miev. However, the Outlander remains one of the company’s best-selling models, and since Mitsubishi didn’t make many changes to the 2017 Outlander, we expect it to be just as popular as the 2016 Outlander.


The 2017 Outlander returns with its four trims: the ES, SE, SEL, and GT 3.0, all with the option of all-wheel-control (AWC), except for the Outlander GT, which is locked into Super-AWC as a standard. The Outlander ES, SE and SEL all come standard with the 2.4-liter MIVEC SOHC 16 I4 engine, which can generate up to 166 horsepower and 162 lb-ft of torque. “MIVEC” is an engine term specific to Mitsubishi and it is a design that controls the intake and exhaust valves to improve engine performance and fuel economy. The 2.4L engine gives the Outlander a fuel economy of 25/30mpg city/highway.


Many features are shared between all four trims on the 2017 Mitsubishi Outlander lineup. Some of these are basic features like LED rear combination tail lights or rear window intermittent wipers. Other features may be seen as little luxuries, such as rear privacy glass or heated power adjustable side-view mirrors. Some of the more high-end features, such as auto on-off headlights are standard on the Outlander SEL and GT 3.0, whereas only auto-off headlights are on the Outlander ES and SE.

Furthermore, depending on the trim, some features may be optional or standard. The Outlander GT 3.0 comes standard with LED headlights. It also comes standard with a power glass sunroof, which is optional on the Outlander SE and SEL. All trims ride on 18-inch two-tone alloy wheels and have a temporary spare tire. A roof carrier plug-in for, as the name says, rooftop cargo carriers.


Like the exterior, many interior features are shared across trims. All 2017 Mitsubishi Outlander models have a seven passenger seating capacity. They also have an ECO indicator light that lets them know when the vehicle is making the most out of its mileage. All models but the base (Outlander ES) have heated front seats. The Outlander ES and SE have 6-way adjustable driver seats, the Outlander SEL and GT 3.0 have 8-way power adjustable driver seats, and all models have a 4-way adjustable passenger seat. All models also come with 60/40 split fold-down rear seats and 50/50 third-row flat fold-down seats .

Front dual-zone automatic climate control, rear heater floor ducts, and leather wrapping on the steering wheel are standard across the trims. The shift knob is also leather wrapped, and leather seats and armrests are standard on the Outlander SEL and GT 3.0. A heated steering wheel is optional for the Outlander SEL and GT 3.0.



The base trim (Outlander ES) comes with a 6.1-inch touchscreen with rearview camera and the other three trims have a 7-inch display with smartphone link for Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The Outlander SEL trim can be upgraded with a Rockford-Fosgate premium audio system with nine speakers, and this system comes standard on the Outlander GT 3.0 trim. A Multi-view camera system is also optional for Outlander SEL, but standard on the Outlander GT 3.0.

Across the trims, there is Digital HD Radio, Hands-free link with Bluetooth and steering wheel mounted audio controls, and ECO mode switch, underfloor cargo storage and cargo tie-down utility hooks. Whereas the base trim comes with remote keyless entry with a panic feature, the other trims come with FAST-Key passive entry with push button start. The Outlander SEL and GT 3.0 also come with an auto-dimming rearview mirror with Homelink universal garage door opener.



An anti-lock braking system (ABS) and electronic brakeforce distribution (EBD) are standard across all trims, as are advanced dual stage airbags (seven including drivers knee) and an anti-theft security alarm with engine immobilizer. As with all Mitsubishi vehicles, the Outlander is designed with RISE body construction to increase crumple zones and the frames ability to absorb impact in the event of a collision.

The Outlander GT 3.0 comes standard with blind spot warning with rear cross traffic alert and lane change assist, and there are many high-end advanced safety systems that are optional on the Outlander SEL and GT 3.0. These systems include adaptive cruise control, forward collision mitigation, and lane departure warning.


The starting MSRP for the 2017 Mitsubishi Outlander is $23,495. All Mitsubishi vehicles come with a 10-year/100,000-mile powertrain limited warranty, a 5-year/60,000-mile new vehicle warranty, and 7-year/100,000-mile anti-corrosion and perforation limited warranty.
