Mitsubishi has unveiled the Outlander and Outlander Sport Limited Edition at the Los Angeles Auto Show.
First up, the 2014 Outlander has an evolutionary design with a distinctive front fascia that incorporates a slender grille and angular headlights. There's also upward sweeping character lines, clear taillights and a tailgate-mounted spoiler.
The entry-level ES comes nicely equipped with air conditioning, power windows / locks and a six-speaker audio system. Moving up to the SE adds a leather-wrapped steering wheel, heated front seats, a rearview camera and a premium audio system with a 6-inch touchscreen display. Lastly, the range-topping GT variant is equipped with HID headlights, rain-sensing windshield wipers and faux wood trim.
Under the hood, two engines are available. The 2.4-liter four-cylinder produces 166 bhp (124 kW) and 162 lb-ft (219 Nm) of torque, while the 3.0-liter V6 churns out 224 bhp (167 kW) and 215 lb-ft (291 Nm) of torque. The four-cylinder engine is connected to a continuously variable transmission, while the V6 is paired to a six-speed automatic. Front-wheel drive is standard, but all-wheel drive is optional.
On the other hand, the Outlander Sport Limited Edition celebrates Mitsubishi's 30th anniversary in North America. It has a unique exterior with special alloy wheels and black accents on the mirrors, front bumper and wheel arches. Interior changes are limited, but customers can order two-tone Dove Grey and Black leather seats.
