Mitsubishi Outlander

Mitsubishi Outlander

  The Mitsubishi Outlander was launched in India in 2008 and in 2010 Mitsubishi gave it a facelift. The Outlander comes with a 2.4-litre MIVEC petrol engine and is available with only a CVT gearbox and also a differential lock. Its competitors are the Honda CR-V and the Chevrolet Captiva.

Mitsubishi wants to give it’s Outlander mini-SUV some street cred and is going to debuit what will likely look a Evo X wagon on steroids. The Outlander GT Prototype will make its debut later this week at the New York Auto Show. Mitsu says the styling will iclude plenty of elements from the Evo including the “Jet-Fighter” grille and Super-All-Wheel-Control System.

Unlike the Evo, the Outlander GT will not get a 291 hp four cylinder engine turborcharged within an inch of its life. Instead the GT is going for more fuel efficient diggs. It will get a version of the 3.0-liter SOHC MIVEC V6 already in use on the Outlander, but this one will have added gas saving technology.

Press release after the jump.

The Mitsubishi Concept cX made its world debut last year at the Frankfurt Motor Show. At that time the company announced the concept is the preview version of a future model. Today Mitsubishi confirmed this model is the future baby Outlander that will be launched in 2009.

The Concept cX is powered by a 1.8-litre Clean Diesel DOHC 16 valve 4 cylinder engine that delivers 100 kW (136 ps) @ 4,000 rpm and 280 Nm @ 2,000 rpm.

It features a variable geometry (VG) turbocharger – to generate optimum boost pressure for all engine loads – as well as DPF (Diesel Particulate Filter) and DOC (Diesel Oxidation Catalyst). The 1.8 liter Clean Diesel engine is mated to Mitsubishi Motors’ Twin Clutch SST technology.

In order to keep up with the strong demand for Outlander in Europe and new Lancer worldwide, Mitsubishi Motors Corporation has decided to transfer production of the Outlander (for European markets) to its regional production hub (Netherlands Car B.V. [NedCar], Born, the Netherlands) during 2008.

The all-new, second-generation Mitsubishi Outlander for 2007 offers a compelling blend of driven-to-thrill dynamics, bold styling, five- or seven-passenger versatility, plus the segment’s first flap-fold tailgate for easy loading and several user-technology firsts for the compact SUV segment. The larger 2007 Outlander is based on a new performance-engineered global platform that will also form the foundation of the next-generation Mitsubishi Lancer and Lancer Evolution models. All Outlander models are powered exclusively by a new 3.0-liter 220 hp aluminum MIVEC V-6 engine teamed to a six-speed Sportronic(R) automatic transmission (with magnesium steering wheel paddle shifters in XLS models). Bringing innovation to the segment, the Outlander will be the first PZEV V-6 SUV offered in the U.S.

A while ago we told you about the Suzuki Suzuki SX4 by Cobra Technology & Lifestyle. Now is the turn of his compatriot, the Mitsubishi Outlander. The changes for the Outlander are more aesthetic than technological. Basically, the changes are all static, with the adding of a front bumper, with 60 mm wide and spoiler for the front bumper, both in steel. But don’t worry; both of them are still safe for persons in case of a (...)
