How the Mitsubishi Outlander Might Surprise You

Miami Lakes Mitsubishi 2017 Outlander Cargo Space

Mitsubishi Motors has had its ups and downs and recently they partnered up with Nissan. However, the two companies have clearly stated they’re still in competition with one another, so it’s clear that Mitsubishi is going to stay strong.  Currently, Mitsubishi is celebrating their 100-year anniversary and their strongest vehicle is the official face of Mitsubishi – the Mitsubishi Outlander.

Yep, it’s been 100 years. The first Mitsubishi Model-A was put into mass-production in Japan in 1917. When the company launched the Outlander in 2001, Mitsubishi didn’t just want the Outlander to blend in with their other models, so they made it the face of Mitsubishi  Motors. If you go to mitsubishicars.com, the first slide you’ll see is the announcement of their anniversary with the Model-A and the Outlander side-by-side. Not only that, but with the recent shut down of the Lancer, Mitsubishi has decided to focus on its SUVs and crossovers, like the 2017 Mitsubishi Outlander and 2017 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport.

So aside from being the new face of Mitsubishi, what are some other things the Outlander has going for it? How about its ability to live up to its name “Sports Utility Vehicle”? One would think it has a lot of cargo space, right?

Miami Lakes Say Goodbye Mitsubishi Lancer

Say “Sayonara” to the Mitsubishi Lancer as Mitsubishi Motors Prepares for New Models

Miami Lakes Sayonara Mitsubishi Lancer

Hello darkness, my old friend…oh it’s a sad shame, it is. With so many possibilities afoot when Mitsubishi joined up with Nissan-Renault, talk of the Lancer was one of the first changes to pop up. Now, Mitsubishi Motors says that 2017 will be the last model year that the Lancer will be produced. What will happen now?

The merge between Nissan and Mitsubishi in late 2016 was and will still be a mutually beneficial relationship between the two companies. There was talk about the Lancer being placed on Nissan’s CMF platform to easily share components between Nissan, Renault, and Mitsubishi. Whether or not that concept will return under a new name is unknown, so for now, the Lancer is being laid to rest.

Miami Lakes 2017 Lancer Horsepower Mods

Mods to Add Horsepower and Torque to Your Mitsubishi Lancer

Miami Lakes 2017 Lancer Horsepower Mods

Although the new 2017 Mitsubishi Lancer has many great features, good fuel economy and modern technology, some drivers are looking for ways to bump up the engine’s horsepower and torque. Well, thankfully there are plenty of components and mods out there to increase an engine’s power without getting a new car. Here’s a list of some modifications you can do to increase your Lancer’s horsepower and torque.

Cold Air Intake

One of the easiest ways to increase the horsepower of an engine is to increase the airflow to the engine. There are various types of air intakes, but in the end many drivers lean towards a cold air intake. Cold air intakes are designed with an increased surface area to pull air through and then they make that air cold. Cold air intakes can be up to three times larger than factory air intakes. Cold air is denser than warm air, and denser air has more oxygen, which is key to creating bigger explosions in the combustion chamber. It’s basic science, the more air and oxygen in the combustion chamber, the bigger the explosions of fuel, and bigger explosions create more engine power.

CatBack Exhaust

After the engine burns up the air and fuel, it expels the leftover fumes through the exhaust. Stock mufflers don’t do justice when it comes to horsepower. The CatBack exhaust will remove the restrictions of the muffler and allow fumes to escape quickly in a straight shot.

Not too long ago Nissan bought a large share of Mitsubishi to stop the versatile motor company from going under. It was back in 2016, and although one would think the news would settle like the dust of many company changes (Apple), it doesn’t seem like Nissan or Mitsubishi planned to be quiet for long and they keep presenting us with new concepts, like the new Mitsubishi-Nissan EV.

So the Nissan-Mitsubishi merge is quickly becoming a mutually beneficial partnership. With Nissan having a strong hand in electric vehicle (EV) tech and Mitsubishi knowing how to make a great PHEV, those are some of the first changes we’ll see. Along with a newly designed Lancer, it’s about time, the next vehicle to get a new look may be a brand new i-Miev or something else altogether.
