2012 Mitsubishi Outlander news, pictures, specifications, and information
With unparalleled crossover styling, the government's highest 5-star crash test safety rating, seating for up to 7 passengers and the choice of front-wheel drive or full-time All-Wheel Control (AWC), the Mitsubishi Outlander (starting MSRP $22,345) has been a winner for both North American consumers and the Japanese auto manufacturer.

For the 2012 model year, the Mitsubishi Outlander receives several key upgrades and environmentally-friendly features.

An 'ECO' indicator light has been added that illuminates on the driver's instrument panel to signal when the vehicle is being driven in a manner that provides optimum fuel efficiency,

Vehicles equipped wîth the Premium package (SE model) and the Touring package (GT model) provide the driver wîth a new level of safety thanks to a rearview camera system that's integrated into the rearview mirror.

Another eco-friendly plus: the 2012 Outlander is now certified as a Low Emission Vehicle (LEV) in all 50 states.

Freshening up the exterior of the entry-level Outlander ES for 2012 is a new wheel cover design for its 16-inch wheels.

Standard features abound on the 2012 Mitsubishi Outlander ES and include a 6-speaker, 140-watt CD/MP3 player wîth digital signal processing, equalization control and speed-compensated volume setting; air conditioning wîth micron air filtration; auto off headlight control; rear combination LED tail lamps wîth clear lenses; rear heater floor ducts; intermittent rear window wiper/washer and a multi-information meter display.

An all-new vehicle added to Mitsubishi's model lineup just last year, the sensible Outlander Sport has been a stunning sales success for the Japanese auto manufacturer. And for the 2012 model year - in just its second year of existence - the Outlander Sport will see a number of engineering improvements made to make this popular compact crossover even better.

These changes include:
• Improving engine noise isolation on all models equipped wîth the continuously-variable transmission (CVT).

• Recalibration of the continuously-variable transmission (CVT) for improved acceleration response and feeling.

• Adding new chrome accents to the gauge cluster surround and some of the center console controls on SE trim level vehicles.

• A new 16-inch wheel cover design (ES model); new 18-inch alloy wheel design (SE model); incorporating a rearview camera display into the rearview mirror for the Premium package available on the SE model vehicle.

• An up-shift indicator light for efficient vehicle operation on ES models equipped wîth the five-speed manual transmission. (posted on

Every 2012 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport model is engineered wîth fuel-conserving technologies including Electric Power Steering (EPS), a higher-efficiency alternator and a wind tunnel-tested body design that provides the best aerodynamic performance in its class.

The entry-level front-wheel drive 2012 Outlander Sport ES is available wîth either a refined 5-speed manual transmission or the advanced continuously-variable transmission (CVT). Standard features include a 140-watt AM/FM/CD/MP3-compatible audio system wîth four speakers; leather-wrapped §teering wheel and shift knob; rear LED combination tail lights; intermittent rear wiper; §teering wheel-mounted audio controls; magnesium-alloy paddle shifters (CVT-equipped cars only) and advanced dynamic systems including Active Stability Control (ASC) wîth Hill Start Assist (HSA).

The Outlander Sport SE boasts essentially all of the ES-level trim features but adds sumptuous amenities including the FÚSE Handsfree Link System™ that allows voice-activated operation of the audio system and a cell phone; Super-wide beam High-Intensity Discharge (S-HID) headlights; 18-inch alloy wheels; One-touch Start/Stop (OSS) engine switch; automatic climate control; and the FAST-key passive entry system.

The Outlander Sport SE is available wîth either 2WD or wîth a driver-selected, electronically-controlled 4WD system - the same all-wheel drive system found on the Mitsubishi Outlander mid-sized crossover vehicle.

In addition to the aforementioned Active Stability Control (ASC) wîth Hill Start Assist (HSA), all 2012 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport models include anti-lock braking system (ABS) wîth Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD) and Brake Assist; Traction Control Logic (TCL); and an advanced front air bag SRS wîth passenger weight and driver's seat position sensors, front seat-mounted side-impact air bags, and curtain side air bags wîth role-over sensors.

As a customer convenience, every 2012 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport sold will have a full tank of gas at the time the customer takes delivery of their new vehicle at the dealership.
