very reliable car, and fun to drive

by peggy from Granite Shoals | June 25, 2019

the outlander is a fun car to drive, it is reliable, and it is well worth the price for what you get in the car.

Best value for the price in a midsize siv

This car meets all my needs for a daily driver that has some substance and gets great mpg. I drive 60 miles a day and get about 30 mpg on the highway. It drives smooth and fits my 6' frame well

So far so good, do not expect to have any issues.

This car has met all my needs, style and performance. This new Outlander has been improved from previous ones that we had leased over the years, but really have never had any problems with any Outlander.

2017 Mitsubishi Outlander Overview


The 2017 Mitsubishi Outlander is a full-size SUV that seats up to 7 passengers across 3 rows. It competes with the Ford Explorer, Toyota Highlander, and Honda Pilot. This year, Apple CarPlay/Android Auto is newly available. A new hybrid version called the Outlander PHEV will be available. It will be covered in a separate overview.

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

Last year, the Outlander received a front-end facelift that adheres to Mitsubishi’s “Dynamic Shield” concept. It is adorned with chrome accents and gloss-black surfaces. Silver garnishes at the front, sides, and rear contrast the black-clad underbody trim. Heated side mirrors and 18-inch alloy wheels come standard. Available features include LED headlights, LED fog lights, power/heated side mirrors with turn-signal indicators, a power liftgate, and a power moonroof.

Under the hood, the Outlander is powered by a standard 166-hp, 2.4-liter 4-cylinder engine mated to a CVT. A more powerful 224-hp, 3.0-liter V-6 paired to a conventional 6-speed automatic is available for the GT trim. Front-wheel drive (FWD) comes standard, while all-wheel drive (AWD) is optional. Fuel economy for the 4-cylinder models is an EPA-estimated 25/30 mpg city/highway. It lowers slightly to a 20/27 mpg rating for the V-6 model.

Inside, the Outlander has a standard cloth fabric interior with a 60/40 split-folding second-row seat and a 50/50 split-folding third-row seat. The center stack features a standard multimedia system that includes a 6.1-inch display, Bluetooth connectivity for phone and audio, and a USB port. It can be upgraded with a 7-inch display, Apple CarPlay/Android Auto compatibility, and a Rockford Fosgate premium audio system. Standard features include dual-zone automatic climate control, a leather wrapped steering wheel, power windows/locks, cruise control, and remote keyless entry. Leather-trim upholstery, a FAST-Key passive entry system, push-button start, a heated steering wheel, and power/heated front seats are available as well.

The AWD Outlander earned a full 5-star overall crash test safety rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). Standard safety features include a backup camera and a tire pressure monitoring system. Available features include adaptive cruise control, forward collision mitigation system, lane departure warning, a blindspot monitoring system, rear cross-traffic alert, and an electric parking brake.
