2016 Mitsubishi Outlander
Mitsubishi has positioned itself to make a comeback as it revamps its full product line. The 2016 Mitsubishi Outlander will be the first production vehicle to showcase the brand's new design direction.
The seven-passenger crossover has been thoroughly redesigned with more than 100 engineering and design changes. This new look is most prominent in the Outlander's front fascia, which now features halogen headlights and LED position lights. The lower door section and rear also have been refined.
The freshening continues inside with new seating surfaces, accent trim and headliner, as well as a redesigned steering wheel, display audio system and rear folding seat. Engineering improvements include a more rigid body and suspension, noise-isolating glass, additional sound insulation throughout, a new dynamic front suspension and rear differential dampers. A new continuously variable transmission results in better acceleration, performance, shift feel and torque delivery, according to the automaker.
The higher SEL and GT models now also offer collision-avoidance technology and adaptive cruise control, which will automatically adjust the car's speed to maintain a safe distance from other vehicles in the same lane.
The automaker did not announce a sale date or pricing. The 2015 Mitsubishi Outlander starts at $23,195.
