With 2016 coming to an end, 2017 models are hitting showrooms. This means savings and sales on 2016 models to make some room. When it comes to the SUV market, these sporty vehicles aren’t going anywhere, but before the 2016 models disappear, it would be good to jump on an already good deal. The Mitsubishi Outlander GT S-AWC is one of the most well-equipped and affordable 2016 SUV models available.
Powered by a 3.0-liter MIVEC SOHC 24-valve V6, the 2016 Mitsubishi Outlander GT S-AWC has Mitsubishi’s personal MIVEC or “Variable Valve Timing” system. This is a process that basically improves the vehicle’s performance while optimizing its fuel economy. With a six-speed automatic transmission switching the gears, the Outlander GT produces 224-horsepower and 215 lb-ft of torque, and gets 20 MPG in the city, 27 MPG on the highway.
The abbreviation, S-AWC stands for “Super All-Wheel Control,” a system developed for the discontinued Lancer EVO. This would entail that the Outlander can switch between two-wheel drive (2WD) and four-wheel drive (4WD).

For the past few years, hybrids and electric cars have been popping up around the world from many different brands. Mitsubishi is high up there, with its Mitsubishi i-Miev and Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV (currently overseas).
If Mitsubishi Motors has shown us anything though, it’s that they tend to make a lot of noise when they’re onto something new. That’s why they are building some hype before the 2016 Paris Motor Show, where they’ll be showing off the eX concept, an all-electric SUV concept, and their new Mitsubishi GT-PHEV concept, a new hybrid SUV.
