This time, you should forget about the performance character and bold design because Mitsubishi now offers an outstanding efficiency, comfort, and a bit more restrained design for the sake of practicality with its brand new 2017 Mitsubishi Outlander. The upcoming model has undergone many changes and tweaks that will make it even more appealing and competitive.
The company decided for major refreshment of the midsize three-row Outlander, although the vehicle was a revised for the 2014. It appears that the company changed a lot when it comes to the 2017 Mitsubishi Outlander and we will soon check these changes in detail. Stay tuned.
2017 Mitsubishi Outlander Exterior
As far as the exterior design of the 2017 Mitsubishi Outlander Is concerned, we immediately noticed that the newcomer has a new, more aggressive design on the front fascia. Well, the vehicle has a more aggressive design thanks to the new “Dynamic Shield” design language that is actually borrowed from the famous Montero SUV.
The halogen headlights now received a new look and have LED park lights. The vehicle also gets redesigned fog lights placed at the lower edge of the front bumper. Besides that, there are also revamped front fenders and lower door section.
The rear fascia has also been redesigned, sporting brand-new LED taillights. For even greater look, there are 18 inch alloy wheels. Higher trim levels also get windshield de-icer, LED headlights and also power-folding side mirrors.
The cabin is actually the place where the upcoming 2017 Mitsubishi Outlander shows all its glory. The cabin gets a great deal of soft-touch materials that ensure great comfort and feel. It is easy to notice that the vehicle has a new, redesigned steering wheel, refreshed seats, new headliner material, and brand-new accent trim on the dashboard and doors.
You are now able to easily operate with the third row seats because they are also revamped. As for the technology, the customers will be offered excellent Mitsubishi Multi Communication System (MMCS) audio and navigation system. Higher trim levels get auto-dimming rearview mirror with HomeLink.
Don’t worry, that’s not all. The 2017 Mitsubishi Outlander arrives with a great number of equipment that will be offered as standard including an ECO mode, automatic climate control, a six-speaker audio system Fuse Hands-Free Link System and USB port and others.
The company also put a lot of effort to improve the safety of the vehicle, so when it comes to the safety equipment we can expect seven airbags, brake assist, active stability control with Traction Control Logic, adaptive cruise control, lane departure warning and so on.
Engine of Mitsubishi Outlander
There is no official information about the changes under the hood, but the company confirmed that a new CVT transmission ensures improved acceleration, better shift feel, and of course torque delivery.
We assume that the engine will be carried over, so the vehicle will probably be powered by a 2.4-liter I-4 which delivers 166 hp and 162 lb-ft of torque. Higher trim levels will be powered by a 3.0-liter V-6 which generates 224 hp and 215 lb-ft of torque.
