Mitsubishi Outlander Overview
The Mitsubishi Outlander is classed as a crossover SUV (Sports Utility Vehicle) produced by the Japanese automobile manufacturer Mitsubishi. The crossover means it is built on a car platform but has many features of a standard SUV. This vehicle was first marketed under the name Mitsubishi Airtrek in Japan from 2001, and was then marketed under the Outlander name across the world from 2003. This vehicle is a quality looking vehicle, handles well and is very spacious inside with some versions offering 7 seats. These vehicles can be very expensive compared with some competitors and is not as refined as some of these competitors.
Mitsubishi Outlander History
The first generation (2001-06) was available in both front wheel drive and four wheel drive. In 2002 a high performance version became available, with the engine from the Lancer evolution. The Outlander first appeared in North America in 2003, replacing the Montero Sport.
The second generation (2006-12) was when the Airtrek name was dropped in Japan in favour of the Outlander name which was proving successful on an international scale. The new version was available on a larger GS design platform. There were two makeovers which took place in both 2008 and 2010, with the 2010 makeover having the biggest changes to the vehicle.
There is planned a third generation Outlander which was unveiled at the Geneva motor show in 2012, with a planned release in 2013.
The different engines available for this vehicle are: 2.0, 2.4 and 3.0 petrol and 2.0, 2.3 and 2.4L diesel engines. The proposed third generation model is to have a plug-in hybrid version which would be very economical. The diesel engines are the most economical of the current engine range, but when considering fuel economy always take the following factors into consideration: age, fuel type and engine size.
There are 5 and 6 speed manual gearboxes available for this vehicle. There is also a 6-speed semi automatic and 6-speed twin clutch gearbox and there is a proposed 6 speed automatic CVT gearbox for the third generation model. Have a look at the Mitsubishi gearbox section to find your gearbox parts.
