2016 Mitsubishi Outlander Exterior

2016 Mitsubishi Outlander Overview (See Available Styles)

Mitsubishi has significantly overhauled its seven-seat Outlander crossover SUV for the 2016 model year with new exterior styling and a number of chassis improvements.

Four trims are available: the ES, SE, SEL, and GT.

The 2016 Outlander is the first model to feature the brand's new front design language. Mitsubishi calls it "Dynamic Shield," and the look is heavy on chrome with a chrome grille and vertical chrome accents that border a piano-black bumper treatment. New rear styling includes LED taillights that extend into the liftgate and a restyled bumper. Heated side mirrors and 18-inch alloy wheels are standard.

The general look of the cabin carries over, but there's an updated steering wheel and available navigation system. There's room for up to seven people in three rows of seats with cloth upholstery standard and leather optional.

Standard features include automatic air conditioning, a CD stereo with USB connectivity and a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob. A Rockford Fosgate premium stereo, power moonroof and power liftgate are optional.

Under the Hood
Power comes from a standard 166-horsepower, 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine or an optional 224-hp, 3.0-liter V-6. The four-cylinder teams with a next-generation continuously variable automatic transmission, while the V-6 works with a conventional six-speed automatic.

Mitsubishi says body and suspension rigidity has been increased, the suspension and power steering have been updated, and there's more sound insulation. Mitsubishi says the changes result in improved handling and less noise, vibration and harshness.

Antilock brakes and an electronic stability system are among the federally mandated safety features. The Outlander also has seven airbags. Optional features include adaptive cruise control, forward collision mitigation and lane departure warning.
