The rugged 2011 Mitsubishi Outlander with seating for five or up to seven passengers, offers big value in the competitive midsize crossover utility vehicle segment.
Available in five trim levels (2WD ES, SE, XLS, 4WD SE and GT editions) upgrades to the 2011 Outlander’s engine management system have led to improved fuel EPA ratings across the lineup.
Two normally-aspirated engines are available in the Outlander: a 2.4-liter 4-cylinder that produces 168 horsepower in the Outlander ES and SE models, while the XLS and GT grade vehicles feature a 3.0-liter V-6 that is capable of producing a full 230 peak horsepower.
The Outlander ES comes equipped with a Sportronic Continuously Variable Transmission. The Outlander XLS and GT possess the enthusiast driver-oriented paddle shifters and are mated to a technologically-advanced Sportronic 6-speed automatic transmission.
Every Mitsubishi Outlander benefits from advanced design and engineering systems including an all-aluminum roof that not only helps to improve the vehicle’s fuel efficiency, but also helps to lower this stylish crossover’s center of gravity, thus aiding in handling, controllability and stability for the driver.
Eye-catching exterior details include LED taillights with clear lens covers; and wonderful conveniences including fold-flat first and second row seats, along with an easy to access flat-folding tailgate.
Base model estimated mpg: 23/28
Estimated starting price: $21,995
