Proudly Serving Gainesville, GA
The 2018 Mitsubishi Outlander epitomizes the type of SUV that drivers want in a modern-day vehicle. There is an undeniable fact that the Outlander is not a cookie-cutter vehicle. The Outlander offers drivers a fun and exhilarating ride, while also providing features that many other SUV’s simply do not match. The only other vehicle that comes close to the creative design of the 2018 Mitsubishi Outlander is the 2018 Honda Pilot. As a respectable and highly regarded brand, Honda is an excellent choice to measure its formidable existence to challenge the Mitsubishi Outlander.
Power and Performance
The engine in the 2018 Outlander is a 2.4-liter MIVEC SOHC 16-valve four-cylinder. The engine has 166 horsepower and 162 pounds of torque. This is the standard engine for all trim levels except for the GT, which has a 3.0 MIVEC SOHC 24-valve six-cylinder engine. The engine has 224 horsepower and 215 pounds of torque. With the 2018 Pilot, the standard engine is a 3.5-liter V-6 engine for all trim levels except for the Elite trim. The estimated EPA rating for the Pilot is 27 city and 19 highway MPG, as opposed to the estimated EPA rating of 30 city and 27 highway MPG for the Outlander. It’s clear that the standard engine for the Outlander provides better fuel efficiency, while also giving you the enormous high-performance you need. With a 10-year/100,000 mile Powertrain Limited Warranty, the Outlander also offers a lot in order to protect your investment.
Safe Driving Features
The Outlander comes standardly equipped with Active Front Differential (AFD), which distributes consistent power between the front axles on either side. Active Stability Control (ASC) helps with cornering and it is intended to keep the vehicle on the path you choose for extreme handling capability. Additionally, the Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) gives you added stability and control. The ABS is enhanced with Electronic Brakeforce (EBD) to improve the steadiness of your vehicle while cornering. While the Pilot does have similar features, the SUV lacks the added benefits you would expect from Honda. However, the Pilot does offer Honda Sensing, which has a few driver-assisted alerts. Honda Sensing includes Collision Mitigation Braking System (CMBS). CMBS is a similarity of the Outlander’s enhanced SUV control features; however, it is an improvement for the automaker. The 2018 Outlander was awarded the “Top Safety Pick” by IIHS.
The 2018 Outlander is 67.3 inches in height, 184 inches in length and 60.6 inches in width. Those dimensions highlight an SUV that has all the space you will ever need. The 7-passenger SUV has exceptionally crafted automatic high beam headlamps. The headlamps auto-adjust between low and high levels to give you the brightness needed any time of the day. The Outlander has Mitsubishi’s exclusive Reinforced Impact Safety Evolution (RISE), which is designed to absorb the energy of a high-impact collision. The Pilot has an aerodynamic shape that helps with its body weight, which is known to affect fuel efficiency. The LED low-beam and high-beam headlight automatic feature is an option that is also available.
