Mitsubishi has released a blurry teaser image of their upcoming Outlander GT Prototype which will be officially unveiled at the New York Auto Show next week.

Although little is known about the new concept, it will feature an aggressive exterior thanks to the adoption of the Lancer Evo X's signature "Jet Fighter" grille. Painted in a premium white diamond hue, the Outlander GT Prototype also comes with Lancer-inspired headlights, massive wheels, and what appears to be a lowered "sports" suspension.

On the technical side, the Outlander GT concept boasts several new technologies including a transmission equipped with Idle Neutral Logic. The system automatically shifts the transmission into neutral when the vehicle is at a standstill, which results in improved fuel efficiency.

Power is provided to all four wheels by a retuned version of the company's 3.0-liter SOHC MIVEC V6 engine which will offer "improved performance." The engine produces 220 horsepower and 204 lb-ft of torque in the Outlander XLS, so expect a slight improvement in those numbers when detailed information on the GT is released.
