2019 Mitsubishi Outlander in Hampton, VA

Since the Mitsubishi Outlander was released in 2006, it has been a leader in the ever-increasing class of compact crossover vehicles. By 2016, global sales surpassed 1.5 million units, and Mitsubishi also released a plug-in hybrid model that has since become the most popular of its kind in Europe. The 2019 Outlander promises to continue the reputation of excellence that its predecessors have shaped and even make some notable improvements on many of the vehicle's most popular features. 

Trim Levels (Exterior)

The 2019 Outlander carries minor exterior updates on the previous model, including restyled headlights, the front bumper, and wheels. At just over 105 inches long and 73 inches wide, it's large enough to provide a comfortable ride for your whole family without feeling too large to handle. It's offered in four trim packages: ES 2.4, SE 2.4, SEL 2.4, and GT 3.0 S-AWC. Each is offered in seven vibrant colors: Rally Red, Alloy Silver, Mercury Gray, Quartz Brown, Cosmic Blue, Pearl White, and Labrador Black, and it comes with a wide range of standard and optional features. The GT 3.0 model offers some interesting exterior upgrades on the base models, including LED headlights and fog lights in lieu of the standard halogen, chrome beltline molding, rain-sensing windshield wipers, a windshield wiper deicer. 

Engine (Power)

The outlander comes with two engine options. The 2.4-litre MIVEC SOHC 16-valve inline four-cylinder engine in the ES, SE, and SEL models creates 166 horsepower at 6000 rpm for 162 pound-feet of torque, while the 3.0-litre MIVEC SOHC 24-valve V-6 in the GT edition creates 224 horsepower at 6250 rpm for 215 pound-feet of torque, providing a little extra oomph for those who want it at the higher price but sacrificing some fuel economy in order to do so. 


For the most recent iteration of the Outlander, Mitsubishi didn't seem to update the performance in any noticeable ways. The 2.4-litre models come standard with a Continuously Variable Transmission, while the 3.0-litre GT model carries a six-speed electronic automatic transmission for a somewhat smoother ride and more control on rougher terrain. All models feature electronic power steering as well as ventilated disc brakes and 18 X7.0 aluminum alloy wheels with large 225/55 R18 tires that hug the road. 


One of the most beloved features of the Mitsubishi Outlander is the third row seating. It's a luxury for a crossover vehicle in this class, and it's not going anywhere anytime soon. The interior offers plenty of leg room for up to seven passengers and a generous amount of head room as well. The SE models add eight-way power adjustable seats as well as a 7-inch Smartphone Link Display Audio System with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto capability as well as a rear USB port for passengers looking to charge their devices. 

Safety Features

Mitsubishi has certainly taken into account the safety and security of drivers and passengers of the 2019 Mitsubishi Outlander. All models come standard with hill start assist, ABS, traction control, and a generous number of airbags in addition to a number of other safety features. Options available include blind spot warning with lane change assist as well as lane departure warning, adaptive cruise control, and forward collision mitigation.
