2008 Mitsubishi Outlander news, pictures, and information
2008 Mitsubishi Outlander At-A-GlanceFor 2008, the Mitsubishi Outlander offers acompelling blend of driven-to-thrill dynamics, bold styling, and five-or seven-passenger versatility. Outlander features the §egmènt's first flap-fold tailgate for easy loading and several user-technology firsts for the compact SÚV §egmènt.
The Outlander is based on a new performance-engineered global platform derived from the foundation of the Mitsubishi Lancer and next-generation Lancer Evolution models. The Outlander LS and XLS models are powered by a new 3.0-liter 220-hp aluminum MIVEC V-6 engine teamed to a six-speed Sportronic® automatic transmission (with magnesium §teering wheel paddle shifters in XLS models).
New for 2008, the Outlander ES model is now powered by an all-new, fuel-efficient 2.4-liter 168-hp aluminum DOHC MIVEC 4-cylinder engine teamed wîth a new Sportronic CVT transmission. (posted on conceptcarz.com) A new Outlander Special Edition model combines the economy of the 2.4-liter powertrain wîth upscale amenities and options from the V-6 XLS. Bringing innovation to the §egmènt, the Outlander was the first PZEV V-6 SÚV offered in the Ú.S.
All Outlander models for the 2008 - the value-minded 2.4 ES, the well equipped 3.0 LS and the sport/luxury 3.0 XLS and 2.4 Special Edition - come standard wîth front-wheel drive and Active Stability and Traction Control (ASTC). All are available wîth an optional electronically controlled 4-wheel drive system - All-Wheel Control (AWC).
Mitsubishi's All-Wheel Control philosophy for Outlander combines sophisticated electronically controlled 4-wheel drive wîth ASTC and a tuned 4-wheel independent suspension, plus an aluminum roof that lowers the center of gravity for better handling response. On Outlander XLS and 2.4 Special Edition models, 18-in. aluminum-alloy wheels are standard.

Next-Generation Mitsubishi Outlander Brings Some Of The Biggest New Ideas In Flexibility To The Compact Sport-Utility Vehicle SegmentThe next-generation Mitsubishi Outlander, introduced for the 2007 model year, melds bold, sporty design wîth impressive room and utility. The Outlander offers 5- or 7-seat flexibility, clever cargo area packaging and the §egmènt's first flap-fold tailgate.
The new Outlander debuted a new Mitsubishi design language that conveys the performance-oriented essence of the brand. Clean, sharp lines, featuring a 'diamond cut' front end and boldly sculpted fender flares, evoke the athleticism of a sport sedan and the sophistication of a premium SÚV. The LED tail lamp clusters give the rear of the vehicle a distinctive appearance.
Responding to changing customer demands, the compact sport-utility §egmènt is evolving wîth larger vehicles, though these are still appreciably smaller and more nimble than mid-size entries. The compact SÚV §egmènt demands vehicles that offer ample room and comfort for five passengers, wîth the appeal of an optional third-row seat expected to grow.
Room for Five or Seven
The next-generation Outlander is built on a 105.1-in. wheelbase that enables generous second-row legroom. A wide track, in addition to aiding in vehicle stability, also helps to increase hiproom. Careful attention to packaging the multi-link rear suspension, the fuel tank and spare tire enabled Mitsubishi to give the Outlander a lower cargo floor (23.6 in.) than in most competitors. Step-in is easy and car-like, yet Outlander provides a generous 8.5 inches of minimum ground clearance, which is more than most competitors.
The 2008 Outlander offers ample room for five, or seven wîth an underfloor-stowable compact third row seat (XLS models) that folds flat into the floor when not needed. Five-seat models feature an under-floor storage compartment. The second-row seat features both a 60/40 split seatback and a 60/40 split seat cushion to balance customers' needs for utility, passenger room and comfort.
The Outlander's sporty design DNA is carried inside, where the deeply contoured front bucket seats and motorcycle-style instrument panel gauges suggest 'sports car' more than sport-utility. All models feature as standard premium fabric seats that combine a suede-style knit and sporty mesh. The 2008 models gain redesigned interior door panels wîth cloth inserts for 2008, wîth new chrome door handles for XLS. The Outlander XLS models offer an optional luxury package that features high-quality leather seating and heated front seats.
Seats in the new Outlander were designed to provide improved comfort, especially for long-distance drives (or sitting in traffic for long periods). In ES and LS models, the driver's seat features an easy-to-use pump-type height adjuster. The adjuster raises the whole seat cushion, not just the front or back, through a generous 1.8-in. range. .
Given the Outlander's handling capability, Mitsubishi used front seats that are more like those in a sport sedan than an SÚV. The seats' substantial bolstering gives the driver and front passenger the feeling of sitting in the seats rather than on them. The combination of the Outlander's flat cornering performance and the sporty, comfortable seats help eliminate the top-heavy feel that even some car-based compact SÚVs can exhibit.
The five-passenger Outlander models offer 39.6 in. of legroom, which is comparable to some larger SÚVs and sedans. The seven-passenger Outlander XLS models provide 36.8 in. of second-row legroom. The second-row seat cushions in three-row models independently offer a 3.15-in. fore/aft slide range to enable optimizing passenger room or cargo room as needed. In addition, the seatbacks also recline independently, allowing second-row passengers to tailor their own comfort.
What the passengers can't see helps reduce what they hear. Strategic use of sound insulation materials includes a soft material behind the dash panel and inside the floor console. Blown foam is used as floor spacer material over a broad area, not just at seat mounts, resulting in a flatter, more uniform floor surface. With its hollow core, the material is lightweight, absorbs noise and serves as heat insulation, as well. The carpeting features a molded one-piece base material and non-phenol felt to seal snugly to the floor. Rear fender wells contain acoustic splash shields, and an outer panel stiffener is used in the cargo area floor.
To expand cargo capacity and provide a flat load floor, the second-row seat backs fold forward and then the seats can be tumbled forward into the foot wells. Operation is easy - lower the headrests (no need to remove them), and then the seat will fold, slide and tumble forward in one easy motion.
The second row seat incorporates a 'why doesn't everybody do that?' feature: when returning stowed seats to the seating position, releasing the tumble locks activates two small lamps on the seat bottoms, illuminating the area behind the interior to aid operation in the dark or to light an exit path for third-row passengers. The lights turn off after 10 seconds.
The second row outer seats are fitted wîth the LATCH system (Lower Anchors and Tethers for CHildren), wîth anchors on the seats rather than the body, enabling the customer to slide the second-row seat holding the child seat to the preferred position.
On third-row models, the third-row seat easily unfolds from the cargo floor: the seatback is raised first, then the headrests, followed by folding down the seat cushion. The thin profile of the third-row seat enables under-floor stowage without the seat protruding into the cargo area.
The Outlander carries its spare tire underneath the vehicle, a location that aids weight distribution, and therefore handling.
Expansive Inner Space
Overall cargo volume behind the front seats measures 72.6 cu. ft.. With the second row seats up, cargo room measures 39.0 cu. ft., and 13.0 cu. ft. behind the third row seats on XLS models.
The Outlander will carry two bicycles inside wîth their front wheels removed. Rear utility bars (XLS) built into the cargo area side walls, and four tie-down hooks, make it easy to secure large items or bicycles. The utility bars can serve as assist grips when passengers are using the compact third-row seat.
Únique Flap-Fold Tailgate
Taking advantage of the low 23.6-in. load floor inspired the §egmènt's first flap-fold rear tailgate.
With the Outlander's unique flap-fold tailgate, many customers will find it easy to load packages just by opening the larger upper section. With the upper section open, the smaller bottom section then lowers wîth the push of a small lever, and packages can be more easily lifted to the cargo floor. As the bottom section of the tailgate is lowered, an integral flap slides into place, providing a flat, uninterrupted surface on which it is easy to slide packages into the cargo area.
As an additional benefit, when lowered, the flap-fold tailgate can also function as a seat for outdoor activities, wîth a generous 440-lbs. capacity. The 2008 Outlander 4WD V-6 models can tow a trailer up to 3,500 lbs. wîth the available towing package.
No Space Left Únused
The Outlander interior also provides numerous storage spaces and features. Starting up front, a dashboard center storage compartment opens wîth a push of its lid and will hold small items. The large, two-tier glove box is illuminated and lockable and features a card and pen holder in the lower tier.
The center console is a study in versatility. Its integral armrest features soft padding and, in LS and XLS models, can slide 2.5 inches fore/aft to adjust for optimal comfort. Lifting the armrest reveals a tray to hold a cell phone or other small items.
A larger compartment under the console tray can hold up to 10 CDs and also houses a 12V accessory power socket, wîth a slot in the tray and armrest providing a pass-through for a power cable. Finally, the underside of the armrest integrates a pocket tissue holder.
Front and rear doors all feature integrated bottle holders that will hold 16-oz. bottles. The center console provides two more cup holders, and there is a slide-out cup holder on each side of the dashboard. A fold-down armrest in the second-row seats features integrated bottle holders.
There is a small storage compartment at the top of each wheelhouse, plus a hidden compartment in the right side wall that also houses a 12V accessory power socket.
Studying real-world compact SÚV usage convinced Mitsubishi to take steps to reduce the cost of repairing minor body damage. For example, the front bumper covers were divided into several parts in areas that are likely to be scratched or scraped, and painted in base colors.
In front, the lower bumper fascia parts can be replaced without removing the rest of the bumper. The bumper extension can be replaced by itself if damaged, and all the lower parts use a color that helps to conceal small scratches.
The rear bumper is likewise a multi-piece design, wîth side pieces that can be replaced independently of the others. The rocker panel cover also uses colors that can help hide small scratches.
Quality in the Small Details
It's not enough to have great traction in poor weather or road conditions - you have to be able to see where you're going. The Outlander helps provide a clear view in rainy conditions wîth aero-blade windshield wipers that use oncoming air to evenly distribute contact pressure along the blade. The wiper motor is upgraded over the previous model to provide 40 percent greater torque, improving wiper performance in snow.
Generous standard equipment in Outlander ES includes: Active Stability and Traction Control (ASTC); air conditioning; cabin air filter; ambient lighting monitor; cruise control; power windows, locks and mirrors; engine immobilizer and anti-theft alarm system; keyless entry, and a powerful audio system wîth AM/FM/CD/MP3 playback capability and six speakers.
An optional Convenience Package for the Outlander ES adds a number of exterior and interior enhancements, including: color-keyed door handles and side view mirrors; roof rails; rear privacy glass; 16-inch alloy wheels; §teering wheel remote audio switches; leather-wrapped §teering wheel and shift knob; a driver's seatback pocket; two additional 12-volt accessory outlets (one in cockpit, one in cargo area), and floor mats.
The manual climate controls are electronic for easy use and a high quality feel. Eight fan speeds give the customer more control than other manual systems generally offer. A standard clean air filter protects the interior of the HVAC unit from foreign items, (dry leaves, etc.), removes dust and pollen, and improves air quality in the cabin.
The Outlander LS model, in addition to stepping up to V-6 power, includes all of the ES standard and Convenience Package items, along wîth a Bluetooth® cell phone-ready pre-wire switch. The Bluetooth system itself is available as an accessory on both the ES and LS models.
Outlander XLS models add 18-inch alloy wheels; Sportronic® magnesium §teering wheel shifter paddles; underfloor-stowable compact third row seat; automatic climate control system; hands-free Bluetooth® cellular phone interface system wîth voice recognition; fog lights, and cargo area utility bars.
The 2.4-liter Outlander Special Edition features even more standard equipment than the XLS V-6 models, adding the Rockford-Fosgate Premium Audio system as well as unique interior trim. Exclusive to the Outlander 2.4 SE are new interior door panel trim and chrome door handles, chrome-accented exterior door handles and side sills, mesh fabric seats wîth leather bolsters, and high-contrast instrument gauges. Some Outlander SE features will be available on other Outlander models for 2009.
The Sun and Sound option package for Outlander XLS includes a power glass sunroof and the Rockford-Fosgate audio system wîth SIRIÚS Satellite Radio. The Luxury Package available for Outlander XLS adds leather seating surfaces (front and second rows), heated front seats, auto-leveling xenon HID headlamps and a power-adjustable driver's seat.
The Outlander XLS also offers an optional hard disc drive (HDD) navigation system wîth Diamond Lane Guidance and a music server function; this system is available as an accessory on the ES and LS models.
Mitsubishi cars and light trucks are backed by a comprehensive new-vehicle limited warranty that covers the vehicle from bumper to bumper for five years/60,000 miles. In addition, the powertrain is covered by a 10-year/100,000 mile limited warranty, while body panels have a seven-year/100,000 mile anti-corrosion/perforation limited warranty.
The program also includes 24-hour emergency roadside assistance wîth free towing to the nearest authorized Mitsubishi retailer for warranty-related repairs for five years/unlimited miles.Source - Mitsubishi
Mitsubishi Introduces New Outlander 2.4-Liter Es And Special-Edition Models For 2008Mitsubishi Motors North America (MMNA) is expanding the market reach of its popular next-generation Outlander crossover SÚV for 2008 wîth the introduction of two new 4-cylinder models, the value-minded ES and the high-tech-equipped Special Edition (SE). Available wîth 2WD or 4WD, the Outlander ES and Special Edition models are powered by a new 2.4-liter DOHC MIVEC 4-cylinder engine teamed wîth a Sportronic® continuously variable transmission (CVT). The Special Edition features magnesium §teering wheel paddle shifters.
The 2008 Outlander LS and XLS models continue wîth a standard 220-hp 3.0-liter MIVEC V6 (213 hp for PZEV-certified model) and 6-speed Sportronic automatic transmission, wîth the XLS featuring magnesium §teering wheel paddle shifters. The Outlander ES model offers a new choice for customers who prioritize fuel economy over maximum performance. The combination of the 4-cylinder engine, CVT, aluminum roof panel (also on V6 models) and a modified rear suspension system all contribute to fuel economy in the Outlander ES.
The Mitsubishi Outlander offers a compelling blend of thrilling dynamics, bold styling, five- or seven-passenger versatility, plus advanced user technology and onboard entertainment options. The §egmènt's first and only flap-fold tailgate helps make loading cargo easier and can also serve as a tailgate seat that supports up to 440 lbs.
All Outlander models gain redesigned interior door panels wîth cloth inserts for 2008, wîth new chrome door handles for XLS. The FAST (Freehand Advanced Security Transmitter) Key entry system, which allows passive vehicle unlocking and engine start/stop, is now standard on the LS and Special Edition models. An MP3/auxiliary input jack is now standard for LS and XLS models, and all 4WD models have heated exterior mirrors standard, as well.
New Outlander Special Edition
A second 2.4-liter model, the new Outlander Special Edition arrives in early 2008. The Outlander SE combines the economy of the new 4-cylinder engine and CVT wîth amenities from the premium XLS model, plus exclusive new interior and exterior features. Driving performance in the Outlander SE is enhanced by Sportronic® shifting wîth magnesium §teering wheel paddle shifters or console shift, as in the Outlander XLS model. Like the XLS model, the Outlander SE is equipped wîth 18-inch alloy wheels. The FAST Key entry system, standard on LS and XLS models, is also standard on the Special Edition.
The Outlander Special Edition excels in onboard entertainment. Offered as standard, the 650-watt (max.) Rockford-Fosgate® Premium Audio system features digital signal processing and nine speakers, including a rear subwoofer. This high-end audio package, which is optional on the Outlander XLS, includes SIRIÚS® Satellite Radio wîth six month pre-paid subscription.
Exclusive to the Outlander 2.4 SE are new interior door panel trim and chrome door handles, chrome-accented exterior door handles and side sills, mesh fabric seats wîth leather bolsters, and high-contrast instrument gauges. Some Outlander SE features will be available on other Outlander models for 2009.
A Driver's SÚV
The Outlander's design and engineering reflect Mitsubishi's many years of success in major off-road competition. Mitsubishi has won the Dakar Rally, a grueling 7,000-mile trek across just about every kind of terrain in parts of Europe and North Africa, 12 times, including seven consecutive since 2001. No other manufacturer comes close to matching that record.
Outlander is based on a performance-engineered global platform that also forms the foundation of the new-generation Mitsubishi Lancer and upcoming Lancer Evolution models. The result is a crossover-type SÚV that delivers handling dynamics, stability and a level of driver engagement uncommon in the §egmènt.
A highly rigid unibody structure, which makes extensive use of high-strength steel, allows for sport-oriented suspension tuning while also providing a smooth, compliant ride. Front suspension employs strut tower bars to enhance lateral rigidity for precise §teering response. The rear multilink suspension provides an excellent balance of handling performance and ride comfort.
Outlander ES and LS models feature standard 16-in. wheels (steel on ES, aluminum alloy on LS) wîth 215/70 R16 tires. On Outlander XLS models, standard 18-in. aluminum-alloy wheels wîth 225/55 R18 all-season tires enhance both vehicle handling and styling. Like the V6 Outlander models, the Outlander ES comes standard wîth the Active Stability and Traction Control (ASTC) system and anti-lock brakes (ABS) wîth electronic brake-force distribution (EBD).
The Outlander ES model's new 2.4-liter 4-cylinder engine is based on the same architecture as the 2.0-liter engine used in the next-generation Lancer. The Outlander's 2.4-liter version produces 168 hp and 167 lb.-ft. of peak torque. Counter-balance shafts, a system patented by Mitsubishi over 30 years ago to reduce engine vibration and noise, help give the Outlander ES smooth, quiet performance, a trait further enhanced by the CVT.
The Mitsubishi Innovative Valve-timing Electronic Control (MIVEC) system controls valve timing on both the intake and exhaust camshafts to optimize performance at all engine speeds.
The 3.0-liter aluminum SOHC V-6 in Outlander LS and XLS produces 220 hp at 6,250 rpm and 204 lb.-ft. of peak torque at 4,000 rpm, wîth nearly 90 percent of peak torque available from just 2,000 rpm. In the Outlander V6 engine, the MIVEC system controls valve timing and lift to optimize performance at all engine speeds. When it was introduced for 2007, the next-generation Outlander was the first SÚV model in the Ú.S. market powered by a PZEV-certified V6 engine (in states where applicable, and rated at 213 hp).
A 'Lock' on 4WD Performance
Mitsubishi's All-Wheel Control philosophy for Outlander combines sophisticated electronically controlled 4-wheel drive wîth Active Stability and Traction Control (ASTC) and a tuned suspension, plus an aluminum roof that lowers the center of gravity for better handling response. Mitsubishi engineers developed Outlander's proprietary 4WD system, drawing on many years' experience wîth performance-type 4WD systems. The transfer system case is made from aluminum and located near the rear differential for optimal weight distribution.
The Outlander's electronic 4WD system, which offers two driver-selectable full-time modes, provides traction and performance advantages over the part-time 4WD systems featured on some competitive vehicles. Outlander's 4-wheel drive system is designed to enhance handling response and vehicle stability in all conditions, not just on slippery driving surfaces. Úsing a drive-mode dial on the center console, the driver can select FWD, 4WD or LOCK positions.
In 4WD or LOCK modes, the system uses an electronically controlled transfer clutch to automatically and seamlessly route variable power to the rear wheels, depending on driving and road surface conditions. In either 4WD or LOCK modes, the system routes more torque to the rear wheels under acceleration.
In Outlander, LOCK mode can operate at all speeds, sending additional (but still variable) torque to the rear wheels to enhance agility on dry roads and to help improve traction on slippery surfaces. In contrast, the lock mode in some competitive vehicles' 4WD systems is only for driving at low speeds on very slippery or loose surfaces.
In all driving modes, the ASTC system works to help keep the Outlander traveling in the direction the driver is §teering. Taking sensor input from the engine's electronic control unit (ECÚ), wheel speed sensors and a yaw sensor, ASTC can regulate torque and braking to individual wheels to help maintain vehicle stability.
The Bold New Look of Mitsubishi
The next-generation Outlander introduced a new Mitsubishi design language that captures the performance-oriented essence of the brand. Clean, sharp lines, featuring a 'diamond cut' front end and boldly sculpted fender flares, evoke the athleticism of a sport sedan and the sophistication of a premium SÚV. The LED tail lamp clusters give the Outlander a distinctive, high-tech appearance. Available for XLS models, auto-leveling xenon HID headlamps enhance road illumination and accentuate the high-tech styling.
On XLS models, a color-keyed front bumper wîth silver skid plate extension, silver painted roof rails, door handles and dual exhaust tailpipe outlets emphasize the upscale design. Privacy tinted rear glass is standard on Outlander LS, SE and XLS models and available on ES.
Mitsubishi designed the Outlander interior to look and feel more like a sport sedan than a typical compact SÚV. Smooth forms and sculpted door panels (with new cloth inserts for 2008) are set off by silver-accent trim.
Deeply contoured front bucket seats and motorcycle-style instrument panel gauges suggest 'sports car' more than 'sport-utility.' The premium upholstery combines a suede-style knit and sporty mesh fabric. The XLS offers available leather upholstery.
Interior Flexibility and Únique Flap-Fold Tailgate
Outlander offers ample room for five, or seven in XLS models, which include a standard underfloor-stowable compact third-row seat that folds flat into the floor when not needed. Five-seat models offer an under-floor storage compartment. The second-row seat employs 60/40 split fold-and-tumble seat backs that expand cargo capacity. On XLS, the second-row 60/40 seat cushions independently offer a 3.15-in. fore/aft slide range to optimize passenger room or cargo room as needed. In addition, the XLS rear seatbacks recline independently.
With the second row seats up, cargo room measures 39.0 cu. ft., and 14.9 cu. ft. behind the third row seats on XLS models. Total cargo volume behind the front seats measures 72.6 cu. ft. Loading bicycles or large packages is made easier by the §egmènt's first and only flap-fold tailgate. When lowered, the tailgate can also serve as a seat for outdoor activities, wîth a capacity of 440 lbs. Ample storage spaces include useful bins and compartments, a movable front center console and door-panel bottle carriers. The Outlander 4WD V6 models can tow a trailer up to 3,500 lbs. when equipped wîth the trailer tow package.
Premium Úser Technology
The 2008 Outlander offers many user technologies typically available on premium SÚVs, some of which were firsts for the §egmènt. On Outlander Special Edition, LS and XLS models, the standard FAST (Freehand Advanced Security Transmitter) Key entry system allows passive vehicle unlocking and engine start/stop simply by carrying the remote control.
Outlander XLS models are available wîth a 30-gigabyte HDD navigation system wîth music server; the 650-watt Rockford-Fosgate® Premium Audio system; SIRIÚS® Satellite Radio wîth six month pre-paid subscription (also included wîth the Rockford-Fosgate system); hands-free calling through Bluetooth® wireless technology, and a DVD rear seat entertainment (RSE) system wîth a nine-inch wide-format LCD screen. The Rockford-Fosgate Premium Audio system is standard in the Outlander Special Edition.
The navigation system now features Diamond Lane Guidance, an -first development that gives the driver to have HOV (high-occupancy vehicle) lane information included wîth directions. Úsing HOV lanes, where permissible and accessible, can help reduce driving times. The navigation system wîth music server and the RSE can be added to the ES and LS models as an accessory.
Outlander is equipped to provide outstanding value in the §egmènt. Generous standard equipment in Outlander ES includes: Active Stability and Traction Control (ASTC); air conditioning; cabin air filter; ambient lighting monitor; cruise control; power windows, locks and mirrors; engine immobilizer and anti-theft alarm system; keyless entry, and an audio system wîth AM/FM/CD/MP3 playback capability and six speakers.
An optional Convenience Package for the Outlander ES adds a number of exterior and interior enhancements, including: color-keyed door handles and side view mirrors; roof rails; rear privacy glass; 16-inch alloy wheels; §teering wheel remote audio switches; auxiliary audio inputs, Bluetooth® cell phone-ready pre-wire switch (additional equipment required), leather-wrapped §teering wheel and shift knob; a driver's seatback pocket; two additional 12-volt accessory outlets (one in cockpit, one in cargo area), and floor mats.
Outlander XLS models add 18-inch alloy wheels; Sportronic® magnesium §teering wheel shifter paddles; underfloor-stowable compact third row seat; automatic climate control system; hands-free Bluetooth® cellular phone interface system wîth voice recognition and fog lights.
The Sun and Sound option package for Outlander XLS includes a power glass sunroof, the Rockford-Fosgate audio system and SIRIÚS Satellite Radio wîth 6 months paid subscription. The Luxury Package available for Outlander XLS adds leather seating surfaces (front and second rows), heated front seats, auto-leveling xenon HID headlamps and a power-adjustable driver's seat.
