Some new styling adjustments include a remodeled front bumper, hood, and fenders, as well as, LED headlights, daytime running lights, and taillights, all of which play a role in the adding of the Outlander’s authoritative appearance. The rear bumper fascia also had a little work done, including the new 18-in wheels.

Enhanced alterations in the interior include new premium-like fabric for the seats, gloss black and silver-painted controls for the climate system, and an 8-inch screen for the infotainment system on certain models.

The ES, SE, SP models are all powered by a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that provides 148 horsepower with 145 lb-ft of torque, though the GT will give you a bit more kick with 168 horsepower from its 2.4-liter engine with 167 lb-ft of torque.
