Outlander

The all-new Outlander was launched in October 2005 to replace the Airtrek as Mitsubishi Motors' mid-size SUV. It came with a new-generation platform, greater rigidity and giving improved impact safety, the low consumption high-performance aluminum block 2.4L V6 MIVEC engine, INVECS-III Sport Mode 6-speed CVT transmission and electronically controlled 4WD. The CVT featured paddle shifters that allow slick and smooth gear changing without taking hands off the steering wheel, adding fun-to-drive qualities to the Outlander. The Outlander adopted many mechanical features nurtured in the Lancer Evolution series including aluminum roof panel and mono-tube rear shock absorbers. The interior, with an eye-catching dashboard which swept across the width of the car, featured an attractive and user-friendly equipment specification including: one-step tumble second row seats and occasional-use third row seats, normally stowed under the floor, a split tailgate and a Rockford Fosgate premium sound system. The lineup was expanded with the addition in October 2007 of a 3.0L V6 MIVEC engine model and in January 2010 of a low consumption 2.0L MIVEC engine.
