Mitsubishi Outlander

The 2018 Mitsubishi Outlander and Outlander Sport are two thoroughly modern and high-value SUVs. The Outlander is available with two engines. The first is a 2.4-liter I-4 with 166 horsepower, 162 lb-ft of torque and a towing capacity of 1,500 pounds. You can upgrade to a 3.0-liter V6 with 224 horsepower, 215 lb-ft of torque and a 3,500-lb. towing capacity.

2018 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport Towing Capacity

The Outlander Sport compact SUV’s standard engine is a 2.0-liter I-4 developing 148 horsepower and 145 lb-ft of torque. You can opt for a 2.4-liter I-4 with 16 horsepower and 167 lb-ft of torque. Mitsubishi does not recommend towing with the Outlander Sport, though of course you can haul cargo inside the cabin and on the roof.

2018 Mitsubishi Outlander Performance Features

If you want maximum traction, you can order the 2018 Outlander with Super All-Wheel Control that combines several features. Active Front Differential distributes power between the left and right front wheels, depending on traction conditions. Active Stability Control keeps the Outlander on track when cornering, while the Anti-Lock Braking System and Electronic Brakeforce Distribution enhances stability and control when hard-braking. Drivers can select among four modes, including Normal, Snow, Lock and AWC Eco, to handle any road conditions. Two advanced automatic transmissions – an efficient CVT and a sporty six-speed — optimize engine output for efficiency and power, and steering-wheel-mounted paddle shifters adds excitement to the driving experience.

2018 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport Performance Features

The 2018 Outlander Sport is available in FWD and AWD configuration, and you can choose between the efficient CVT automatic or the precise five-speed manual transmission. The All-Wheel Control system monitors the road and distributes power/braking to the wheels with the most traction. This is a great boon to handling and performance while maintaining efficiency. Mitsubishi MIVEC engines use innovative valve-time electronic control to balance thrifty fuel consumption with maximum power. Outlander Sport provides intuitive handling by carefully integrating the capabilities of the suspension, steering system and body. With 11.6 ventilated front and 11.9 solid rear disc brakes, four-channel Electronic Brake-force Distribution with Brake Assist, Active Stability Control and Traction Control Logic, Outlander Sport delivers superior control and traction.
