  • Overview

    The Mitsubishi Outlander has been in production since 2001. Mitsubishi Motors initially revealed the concept at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit early in the calendar year. By the end of the year, Mitsubishi released the mid-size crossover in Japan, but at the time, it went by the name Airtek. Since then, the SUV has gone through a handful of generations, including the current third generation. If you're interested in shopping around a used Mitsubishi Outlander, you'll want to dive deeper into the model and decide which model year is right for you. The first generation release stayed primarily in Japan. So even if you were interested in purchasing a used Mitsubishi Outlander from this particular generation, you'd likely need to import it from Asia. The first generation had more of a van body style as the company continued to refine its appearance.

    By the second generation, the Mitsubishi finally moved overseas starting in 2006. This second-generation model remained in production through 2012. At the end of 2012, Mitsubishi Motors revealed the third generation of the crossover SUV at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show. At this time Mitsubishi decided to unveil the third generation in Europe instead of in Japan or the United States because it wanted to generate more attention for the SUV, which it had just shipped to Russia and the rest of the eastern European market in 2012 (this was one of the few remaining markets the crossover hadn't reached). Eventually, the third generation hit the Los Angeles Auto Show in November of 2012, showing off the 2013 model.

  • 2014-2015

    The 2013 model year served as the official entry into Mitsubishi's Third Generation. However, it did not reach the United States until the 2014 model year.

    With the 2014 Mitsubishi Outlander, the crossover SUV took on an all-new appearance from previous generations. Mitsubishi wanted a fresh look with its arrival to the United States and the heavy competition within the crossover sector. To do this, it not only upgraded the exterior look but the interior as well. It also boosted its overall fuel economy to a combined 27 miles per gallon highway and city.

    The 2014 edition did provide two engine options. On the ES and SE models, the company used a 2.4L I4 engine that produces 166 horsepower. With the smaller engine, the Outlander could tow up to 1,500 pounds. The upgraded engine found on the Outlander GT took advantage of a 3.0L V6 that produces 224 horsepower with a standard all-wheel drive drivetrain. It also boosted the towing capacity to 3,500 pounds.

    Some all-new safety features on the 2014 edition included lane-departure warning and automatic braking.

    The 2015 Mitsubishi Outlander offered the same engine options as the previous year. Most of the upgrades for the 2015 took place on the interior of the crossover. This included a FUSE hands-free audio interface, which allowed for the connection of an external audio device via either Bluetooth or USB. The sportier trim GT saw new aluminum-alloy rims with additional LED taillights.

    Fuel economy on the 2015 model does dip slightly to a combined 26 MPG for all models (from the previous 27 on the 2014 model).

    The 2016 edition of the Mitsubishi Outlander saw a significant upgrade all around. This included a complete overhaul of the exterior styling, plus a new navigation system and a new variable automatic transmission. It also featured easy flip-and-fold rear seating. The model year also took the aluminum-alloy wheels found on the previous year's GT trim and made it standard.

    The 2016 Mitsubishi Outlander used the same engine as its previous Third Generation releases, which provided the same engine specs, towing numbers, and fuel economy as the 2015 model. Mitsubishi did recommend using premium gasoline in the V6 to help with engine performance. The more powerful V6, found on the GT trim package, offered fuel economy of 20 miles per gallon in the city and 27 miles per gallon on the highway (the GT only comes in all-wheel-drive).

    With the 2017 model year, the SUV keeps most of the same style looks made on the 2016. It also keeps the same engine specs and options as all of the previous Third Generation model years. Most of the improvements for 2017 come inside the cabin, although all-wheel drive became available on all trim packages, making it easier to invest in the improved handling of AWD without springing for an upgraded trim.

    With the 2017 edition, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto became standard on all models. It also featured a multi-view camera system, blind-spot warning, rear cross-traffic alert, and a heated steering wheel.

    The CVT8 transmission does help improve the automatic shifting, so there is less lull between gears. This makes it easier to accelerate without any kind of a drag.

    The Mitsubishi Outlander continues using the same engine with the 2018 edition as it has in all previous models. Shifting has improved, and the Outlander still provides adequate fuel economy (it takes a small step up with the 2018 model to 27 miles per gallon on average), and the V6 engine can still tow an acceptable 3,500 pounds.

    Most of the new features on the 2018 edition are found on the interior, including the sparkling new 7-inch touch screen. Mitsubishi offers this as a standard feature on all trim packages, including a rearview mirror. The upgraded safety features, such as rear cross traffic alert, lane change assist, and blind-spot warning, can be found on most trims (beginning with the SEL).

    The newest addition to the Outlander lineup comes with the PHEV, which is a plug-in hybrid. It allows up to 22 miles of driving on electricity before the gas fuel-injection kicks in. This can help for drivers who remain close to home for work or who drive small amounts, so it does have the possibility of saving drivers some money. The 22 miles of all electricity is comparable to other hybrid models of the time. The hybrid engine is a 2.0L I4 that produces 117 horsepower and 137 lb-ft of torque (although these are gas-only numbers, so when the hybrid feature is kicked in, the numbers do jump).

    On the upgraded GT trim, AC power outlets are available in both the rear seat and cargo areas.

    New features on the 2019 Mitsubishi include a brand-new suspension system to help provide a more comfortable ride (especially over bumpy terrain or dirt roads). The SUV does have some slight styling upgrades, but, for the most part, it looks the same as the past two years.

    The SUV comes with rear USB ports that are stylishly (and cleverly) placed into air vents. It also comes with an electric parking brake, and the front seats have added support, which can help make longer rides more comfortable.

    The biggest downside of the 2019 edition, though, is the removal of the spare tire. Now the Outlander comes with a tire-repair kit instead of the spare (which, unless you can spot a nail in the tire, isn't all that helpful). If you want a spare, you'll need to pay extra for it (the tire-repair kit is helpful, but for anything more than a puncture, it is not useful, so investing in a spare is recommended).

  • 2020

    The latest edition to the Third Generation Mitsubishi Outlander again keeps the exterior of the vehicle more or less the same. It also keeps the same engine options (the entire Third Generation has used the same engine), which provides the same basic fuel economy, horsepower, and towing capacity.

    On the interior of the crossover, you'll find improved lumbar support (in fact, it offers power lumbar for the first time). An available 8-inch touch screen is now available, giving you an extra inch over the 7-inch option. The sound system is upgraded with an optional Power Sound system, and it offers emergency braking, high-beam assist, and lane-departure warning on all trim packages, which means you no longer need to purchase an upper-tier trim package for these safety features.
