2010 Mitsubishi Outlander GT Prototype news, pictures, and information
Mitsubishi Motors Introduces All-New Outlander GT Prototype to Demonstrate Enhanced Sports and Performance TechnologiesBuilding on the success of the Mitsubishi Outlander, Mitsubishi Motors North America today conducted the World debut of a distinctive new model that takes the compact SÚV to another new level of performance and sportiness - the Mitsubishi Outlander GT Prototype. The all-new design study is the centerpiece of the Mitsubishi Motors exhibit at the New York International Auto Show, which continues through April 19.
The Diamond white Outlander GT Prototype infuses performance and design inspiration from Mitsubishi's Lancer sport sedans and provides clear indicators of the future of Outlander.
'The Outlander GT Prototype is packed wîth technology, performance and premium features that are uncommon in the compact SÚV class,' commented John Koenig, executive vice president of Mitsubishi Motors North America. 'Along wîth its faster heartbeat, we also wanted to quicken pulses by channeling the look of our sportiest cars.'
A front grille design inspired by the Lancer Evolution's 'jet fighter' look is clearly in play on the Outlander GT Prototype, which sports complementary new design elements, such as a reshaped front bumper, side mirrors, fenders and hood. Reshaped Bi-Xenon HID headlamps, a new rear bumper and side sills, plus a bold polished finish on the already standard aluminum roof panel accentuate the sporty appeal.
The Outlander GT Prototype also benefits from improvements to the all-aluminum 3.0-liter SOHC MIVEC V6 currently found in the Outlander XLS, including a reduction in intake restriction plus optimized camshaft timing and compression ratio. The engine changes raise maximum output by 10 horsepower, for a total of 230 horsepower, wîth an improved torque curve for more responsive city driving and enhanced fuel economy and emissions.
To further increase fuel economy, the Outlander GT Prototype features an upgraded shifting program and Idle Neutral Logic, which automatically, and smoothly, shifts into neutral during vehicle standstill. It reengages at the slightest lift of the foot off the brake pedal, thereby providing instantaneous response.Source - Mitsubishi Motors
