Advanced Technology, Upscale Trim Highlight All-New 2014 Mitsubishi Outlander

With its sleek new interior/exterior design direction, high-quality cabin
materials, and reduced fuel consumption, the all-new 2014 Outlander is an
affordably-priced crossover that is an ideal vehicle for the cost-conscience
automotive consumer.

Mitsubishi designers and engineers have given the 2014 Outlander a fresh new
contemporary face that is both appealing and functional with reduced
aerodynamic drag.

Further aiding fuel economy is a lightweight body that tips the scales
approximately 200 pounds less than that of the outgoing Outlander – all while
providing a high level of collision safety and structural rigidity through use
of high-tensile steel.

The 2014 Outlander's new interior design emphasizes ergonomics, aesthetics,
comfort and quality. From the new soft-touch instrument panel to the
eye-catching gloss black center waterfall to the lovely wood grain trim, the
interior of this handsome crossover exudes opulence.

Thanks to a re-engineered version of the Mitsubishi Innovative Valve timing
Electronic Control (MIVEC) system with continuously-variable valve lift, the
2.4-liter 4-cylinder engine combined with a continuously-variable transmission
(CVT) will deliver fuel economy that will place the all-new Outlander among
the most fuel-efficient vehicles in the 7-passenger as standard in the CUV
segment. The premium GT trim level will be offered with a more powerful
24-valve 3.0-liter V-6/6-speed automatic transmission configuration.

In addition to the 2014 Mitsubishi Outlander's long list of welcome standard
amenities, available features include a next-generation navigation system, a
state-of-the-art 710-watt Rockford-Fosgate® sound system, a power tailgate
activated from the driver's seat or by the keyless entry remote fob, and
advanced safety systems including a camera-based Lane Departure Warning system
and radar-based Adaptive Cruise Control and Forward Collision Mitigation
systems as well as the latest version of Mitsubishi's extraordinary Super All
Wheel Control (S-AWC) all-wheel drive system.

Automobile 2.0: The Highly Efficient/Eco-Friendly Plug-in Outlander PHEV

Having revolutionized the automobile industry in the new millennia with the
introduction of the 100% electric-powered Mitsubishi i-MiEV – the first
mass-produced and affordably-priced production electric vehicle (EV) by a
major automobile manufacturer – Mitsubishi Motors will soon launch a
revolutionary plug-in hybrid electric version of the all-new Outlander.

Set to arrive at Mitsubishi dealerships in North America in early 2014, the
Outlander PHEV will make use of highly efficient front-and rear-mounted
electric motors as well as an internal-combustion engine along with a
cutting-edge new form of Super All Wheel Control (S-AWC) system that makes the
most of the dual electric motor/internal combustion engine configuration to
maximize traction, handling and vehicle stability. The all-new Outlander PHEV
can operate in purely EV, Parallel and Series Hybrid mode, depending on driver
mode selection, battery charge level and vehicle speed.

2013 Outlander Sport Limited Edition – Elevating the Compact Crossover

To commemorate Mitsubishi Motors' arrival to American shores some 30 years
ago, the company has created arguably the most dynamic-looking compact
crossover vehicle made available in North America today with the arrival of
the 2013 Outlander Sport Limited Edition.

Manufactured at the company's automobile assembly plant in America's heartland
in Normal, Illinois, the 2013 Outlander Sport Limited Edition makes quite a
visual statement with its distinctly ominous look, thanks to its blackout side
mirrors, center bumper, wheel arch trim and roof rails, accompanied by special
argent Limited Edition alloy wheels. The interior receives the same foreboding
treatment with available two-tone Dove Grey and Black leather seating surfaces
(power driver seat standard on the Outlander Sport Limited Edition). Vehicle
performance is enhanced by a new engine balancer shaft that provides smoother
and quicker acceleration. Rounding out this exquisitely styled package is
special "Limited Edition" badging.
