2018 Mitsubishi Outlander Trims (ES, SE, LE, SEL, GT)

The Mitsubishi Outlander was first introduced to the Japanese automotive market in 2001 as the Mitsubishi Airtrek. The Outlander experienced its name change in 2006 when it began sales in every automotive market. The Mitsubishi Outlander has undergone three generations of change and is now offered with a hybrid option.

The 2018 Mitsubishi Outlander is available in five different trim levels: the ES, SE, LE, SEL, and GT. Each trim offers several various features from one another but also have some of the same key features. The Outlander is one of the only vehicles in its class that provides customers with third-row seating.


The 2018 Mitsubishi Outlander is sold with two different engine layouts. The smaller of the two engines is a 2.4-liter inline-four that produces 166 horsepower and 162 pound-feet of torque. This 2.4-liter is available for every trim except for the Outlander GT. The 2018 GT is powered by a larger 3.0-liter V6 engine that produces 224 horsepower and 215 pound-feet of torque. Each of the engines sends power to the wheels through a continuously variable transmission (CVT).

The 2018 Mitsubishi Outlander is available with both front-wheel drive and all-wheel drive platforms. The front-wheel-drive variants of the 2018 Outlander achieve 25 miles per gallon in the city and 30 miles per gallon on the highway while the all-wheel-drive versions achieve 24 miles per gallon in the city and 30 miles per gallon on the highway. All-wheel-drive systems are available for all of the 2018 Outlander trims but are standard for the Outlander GT.


Many of the 2018 Mitsubishi Outlander models feature a variety of chrome pieces over the exterior of the models. The Outlander LE, however, is fitted with black exterior components. Each of the trims features LED daytime running lights (DRL) in addition to sizeable 18-inch alloy wheels. The Outlander SE is fitted with fog lights and mirrors with integrated turn signals. Like the Outlander SE, the Outlander GT also has fog lights but also has a sunroof. Customers who would like to purchase the Outlander SEL will have the option to buy many of these appearance features as well.


The features of the 2018 Mitsubishi Outlander expand as a buyer goes up in trim level. The Outlander ES comes standard with a 7.0-inch touchscreen display that can be controlled using voice control. Occupants can pair their devices to the infotainment system through a USB port or over BlueTooth. The Outlander ES also features a 6-speaker CD system, a tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel, and a backup camera.

The 2018 Outlander SE offers the same features as the Outlander ES but includes keyless start as well. The speaker system of the SE is upgraded from the 6-speaker system of the ES. Devices can connect to the infotainment system of the SE through both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

The Outlander LE, among exterior upgrades, offers increased safety through features such as rear-cross traffic alert. Stepping up a trim level, the Outlander SEL offers several power device upgrades such as a power-adjustable driver’s seat and power-folding mirrors. The Outlander GT then offers features like shift paddles and a nine-speaker Rockford Fosgate sound system among other features.
