All-New 2014 Mitsubishi Outlander Unveiled

Mitsubishi took the covers off the all-new 2014 Mitsubishi Outlander crossover today at the 2012 Los Angeles Auto Show. On the outside the new Outlander gets a fresh design that is more aerodynamic than the outgoing model. With a focus on fuel economy, the new Outlander also gets a new lightweight body that tips the scales approximately 200 pounds less than that of the outgoing Outlander.


The Outlander is powered by a 166-hp 2.4-liter 4-cylinder engine combined with a continuously-variable transmission (CVT) that according to Mitsubishi will deliver fuel economy that will place the all-new Outlander among the most fuel-efficient vehicles in the 7-passenger crossover segment. The premium GT trim level will be offered with a more powerful 224-hp 3.0-liter V-6/6-speed automatic transmission configuration. Mitsubishi has also announced that a plug-in hybrid version of the Outlander will arrive in early 2014. The Outlander PHEV will be powered by front-and rear-mounted electric motors as well as an internal-combustion engine along with a new form of Super All Wheel Control (S-AWC).


The 2014 Outlander will also be available with a host of new technology features like a next-generation navigation system, a 710-watt Rockford-Fosgate sound system, a power tailgate activated from the driver's seat or by the keyless entry remote fob, and advanced safety systems including a camera-based Lane Departure Warning system and radar-based Adaptive Cruise Control and Forward Collision Mitigation systems.
