New York 09' Preview: Mitsubishi Outlander GT Prototype Gets an EVO-like Front End

Mitsubishi is set to unveil the Outlander GT Prototype at the New York Auto Show next week.

The Outlander GT Prototype features a “Jet Fighter” grille that is very similar to that of the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution. It also features a host of new technologies like Idle Neutral Logic, which automatically shifts the transmission into neutral when the vehicle is stopped. The 3.0L MIVEC V6 is also more powerful and has improved fuel economy and is mated to the Super-All-Wheel-Control System.
