Mitsubishi Motors North America, Inc. (MMNA) has announced pricing for its all-new, second-generation Outlander compact sport-utility vehicle. The larger, more powerful 2007 Outlander will start at a manufacturer’s suggested retail price (MSRP) of $21,370 for a well- equipped ES front-wheel drive model. Early buyers will receive a Mitsubishi 25th Anniversary discount of $1,380 for a starting MSRP of $19,990.
All 2007 Outlander models are powered exclusively by a new all-aluminum MIVEC V-6 engine teamed to a six-speed Sportronic(R) automatic transmission, achieving 220-hp (Federal emissions.) A segment-first Partial Zero Emissions Vehicle (P-ZEV) V6 engine achieves 213-hp. Each of the three trim lines offered for the 2007 Outlander — the value-minded ES, the well equipped LS and the sport/luxury XLS — come standard with front-wheel drive. The LS and XLS models also are available with an electronically controlled 4-wheel drive system. The Outlander LS model has an MSRP of $22,410 with front-wheel drive and $23,770 with 4-wheel drive. The Outlander XLS, which features standard 18-inch alloy wheels, an underfloor-stowable compact third row seat and additional amenities, has an MSRP of $23,650 with front-wheel drive and $25,010 with 4-wheel drive.
All Outlander models are equipped as standard with the Active Skid and Traction Control (ASTC) system. Standard safety features for all 2007 Outlander models include an advanced dual front air bag supplemental restraint system (SRS) with occupant sensors; front seat-mounted side-impact air bags and side curtain air bags (front and second row); an anti-lock braking system (ABS) with electronic brake-force distribution (EBD), and a tire pressure monitoring system.
