Mitsubishi-Miami-Lakes-Automall
Mitsubishi Motors has long been established around the world with fantastic vehicles that might not end make it over to North America. With the recent addition of the 2018 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV to the Mitsubishi lineup in the United States, we’ll take a look at this exclusive vehicle that provides remarkable fuel economy and performance, as well as other Mitsubishi models that should follow suit.  

2018 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV – Now Available in the U.S.

Mitsubishi Motors has enjoyed amazing sales with the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV in Europe for four years. While the rollout has been slow, 2018 is finally be the year that Mitsubishi has this incredible vehicle ready for drivers over here.

The 2018 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV has four-wheel drive (4WD), can travel over 500 miles on a full tank of gas and a fully charged battery, and it can travel more than 30 miles when powered solely by its battery. Complete with a hybrid system of a 12-kWh battery and a 2.0-liter four cylinder engine, this is a remarkable vehicle. The Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV has fans all over the world and should be rolling on the ground over in the states soon enough.

2018 Mitsubishi eK

Have you wanted to travel without worrying about fuel economy? With a unique cube box look, the 2018 Mitsubishi eK is far from typical. A four-door vehicle that looks like a Smart Car, the intrigue this vehicle provides is in the value it gives drivers with 90 city and 120 highway MPGe.

The ride is not very spacious, but four people can fit in this tiny vehicle. With the speed of this powertrain slow, up to 14 seconds to go from 0-60, what it does have is remarkable fuel economy. Including a unique 3G83 SOHC 12-valve straight-3, the 2018 Mitsubishi eK has a quite advanced engine consisting of multi-valve cylinder heads, and Dual Overhead Camshaft and turbocharged variations. Perfect for long distance travels on the right lane.

2018 Mitsubishi L200 Triton

Not many reasons come to mind as to why this Mitsubishi truck isn’t available in the U.S. With class-leading space and leg-space, the L200 Triton Double Cab is luxurious and provides a quiet ride. The truck is available with a 4-wheel drive and two turbocharged engines. When the L200 Triton is equipped with  a 2.4-liter MIVEC turbocharged DOHC engine, this truck offers about 178-horsepower and 317 lb-ft of torque.

Streamlined dimensions add to a driver’s control on the road when driving through narrow paths and providing superior handling. The 2018 Mitsubishi L200 Triton has a drive mode selector that can easily be changed between two-wheel drive high for normal conditions. Those range from 4WD high for rough roads, 4WD lock for off-road and rugged terrains, and 4WD low for steep hills, or any terrain surface containing sand, and even snow or icy conditions.

2018 Mitsubishi Pajero

Maybe it’s something with the name, but for some reason the Mitsubishi Pajero has not been shipped to the United States. The Mitsubishi Pajero is a large rugged, luxurious diesel fueled SUV sold in Australia. Popular since its inception 35 years ago in 1983, with a powerful 3.2-liter intercooled DOHC turbo diesel engine, the Mitsubishi Pajero is a threat to the other SUVs on the market with a comfortable cabin and strong engine performance.

Three trims are available and they range from the base model GLX, to the GLS and Exceed models. The 2018 Mitsubishi Pajero higher tier trims offer heated and power front seats. The Exceed, the luxury trim, provides a chrome radiator grill, 18-inch alloy wheels, side steps, a bold bumper comes with fog lamps and LED Daytime Running Lamps, and a 12 speaker Rockford acoustic premium audio system.

2018 Mitsubishi Outlander vs 2018 Outlander Sport

2018-outlander-vs-sport-MLAMMitsubishi has a very small model lineup and each of their vehicles is designed for a specific purpose. While the Mitsubishi Outlander and Mitsubishi Outlander Sport look similar and have similar names, they both have unique characteristics that make them better for different consumers. Here’s a closer look at the differences and similarities between the Mitsubishi Outlander and the Mitsubishi Outlander Sport.  

While they both share the continuously variable transmission (CVT) that supports up to 30 highway MPG, they don’t share a lot of other similarities. CVT is an automatic transmission that changes effortlessly through an ongoing range of effective gear ratios as opposed to having a fixed number of gear ratios. CVT supplies great fuel economy and both vehicles provide great fuel economy.

Engine Differences

The 2018 Mitsubishi Outlander and 2018 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport both come standard with an inline-4 engine, but the base engine and the other available engines are different.  

The base engine on the 2018 Mitsubishi Outlander is a 2.4-liter 4-cylinder engine, providing 166 horsepower and 162 lb-ft of torque, and the base engine on the 2018 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport is a 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine that produces 148 horsepower and 145 lb-ft of torque. Buyers of either vehicle can increase the vehicle’s horsepower with the available 224-horsepower 3.0-liter V6 engine (optional on the Mitsubishi Outlander) or the available 168-horsepower 2.4-liter I4 engine (optional on the Mitsubishi Outlander Sport).

Transmission

With the exception of the Mitsubishi Outlander Sport ES (Outlander Sport base trim) and the Mitsubishi Outlander GT (Outlander premier trim), all Outlander and Outlander Sport trims come standard with an automatic CVT transmission. The Outlander Sport ES comes standard with a five-speed manual transmission, but buyers can upgrade to an automatic CVT transmission. The Outlander GT comes standard with a six-speed electronic automatic transmission.

Fuel Economy

The 2018 Mitsubishi Outlander 2.4-liter 2 wheel drive automatic provides 25 / 30 city / highway MPG while the 2.0-liter engine with manual 5-speed and 2 wheel drive settles at 23 / 29 city / highway MPG. The 4 wheel drive of the 2.4-liter engine on the 2018 Mitsubishi Outlander gets 24 / 29 city / highway MPG. The 6 cylinder, 3.0-liter automatic gets only 20 city / 27 highway.

For the 2018 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport, the 2 wheel drive, 2.0-liter automatic has 24 / 30 city / highway MPG. The 2 wheel drive on the 2.4-liter automatic provides 23 / 29 city / highway MPG.  The 4 wheel drive with the 2.0-liter automatic 4 cylinder has 23 city / 29 highway and the 4 wheel drive 4 cylinder with a 2.4-liter engine gets 23 city / 28 highway.

Size

Comparing both vehicles, the Mitsubishi Outlander is a crossover SUV and it is larger than the Mitsubishi Outlander Sport, which is considered a subcompact crossover. The Mitsubishi Outlander is available as a five-passenger or seven-passenger vehicle, while the Outlander Sport is only available as a five-passenger vehicle. Behind the first row seats, the Outlander has 63.3 cubic feet of SAE volume and the Outlander Sport has 49.5 cubic feet of SE volume.

In terms of the exterior size differences that result in a different driving experience, there isn’t a huge difference. The Mitsubishi Outlander is 184.8 inches versus the Outlander Sport at 171.5 inches exterior length, but they both have the same turning radius of 17.4’ and the same ground clearance of 8.5 inches.

Features

With a respectable amount of standard features, both the 2018 Mitsubishi Outlander and Outlander Sport provide fold flat rear seats, Bluetooth capabilities, alarm, tire pressure warning systems and stability control. Automatic climate control, aux input capabilities and audio controls are directly changeable from the steering wheel are standard well.

The 2018 Mitsubishi Outlander provides additional features that separate from the Outlander Sport with additions like heated seats, third-row seating, Apple Carplay and Android Auto.

Pricing Differences

The Outlander is a larger vehicle and it comes standard with a stronger base engine, so it has a higher starting MSRP than the Outlander Sport. The 2018 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport has a starting MSRP of $20,395 (plus destination fee) and the 2018 Mitsubishi Outlander has a starting MSRP of $23,945 (plus destination fee).

Warranty

Since the Outlander Sport and the Outlander are Mitsubishi models, they are both backed by the same industry-leading warranty. Mitsubishi backs all of their gas-powered vehicles with a five-year or 60,000-mile limited basic warranty and a 10-year or 100,000-mile limited powertrain warranty.

The New and Improved Mitsubishi Outlander

2016-mitsubishi-outlander_100513595_h

New for the 2016 model year is a totally refreshed Mitsubishi Outlander, enhanced by more than one hundred improvements.

Although the crossover segment is a competitive one, this new Outlander has the distinction of being the only one equipped with a four-cylinder engine and ready to accommodate seven passengers across three rows of seating.

Check out the rest of the Outlander’s offerings, available now at your local Mitsubishi Outlander dealer.

What You Need to Know About the 2016 Mitsubishi Outlander

First of all, Mitsubishi meant business when it revisited this crossover.

According to Mitsubishi Executive Vice President Don Swearingnen, “This is probably the best product we have ever brought to market…We tried to challenge the status quo.”

Mission accomplished, sir.

We’re loving the new commercial and the premise that so many improvements required so many spokespeople.

This crossover comes with two engine options. The base model comes from a 2.4-liter inline four-cylinder engine, rated at 166 horsepower and 162 lb.-ft. of torque. However, drivers can opt for the more powerful 3.0-liter 24-valve V6 engine, generating 224 horsepower and 215 lb.-ft. of torque.

Fuel efficiency is something to celebrate in the Outlander, with the front-wheel drive base engine able to get 31 highway miles and 25 city miles, or 27 mpg combined. All-wheel drive sees a slight dip in those numbers, bringing the figures to 29 city, 24 highway, and 26 combined.

The added power of the V6 compromises the fuel economy slightly, but it’s worth it if you need that extra punch. Expect miles per gallon at an EPA-estimated 21 city miles, 28 highway miles, with 24 miles combined.

Thanks to the new Outlander’s Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT), the acceleration is smooth and strong.

With all of its safety features, including seven air bags, anti-lock braking system with brake assist, active stability control, and tire pressure monitoring, to name just a few, we have every reason to believe that the 2016 Mitsubishi Outlander will continue the legacy of its predecessors as a Top Safety Pick.

Between the third row with seven passenger potential, towing ability (rated at 3,500 pounds), and the Outlander’s solid fuel economy, it’s hard to believe that the new Outlander is even more affordable than any of those that came before it.

Starting at $22,895, the new Outlander is setting the pace in the crossover segment when it comes to affordability without sacrifice. Cars.com actually named the 2016 Mitsubishi Outlander the “Most Affordable 3-Row Crossover.”

Those who have already had the privilege of driving it report a much better ride, improved handling, and a quiet interior.

Without a doubt, the 2016 Mitsubishi Outlander is worth considering for your next crossover purchase.
