Since their launch, the Mitsubishi Outlander and Outlander PHEV have been making waves. Mitsubishi is known for its innovative engineering and design, and the new 2018 Outlander proved to live up to this reputation perfectly. The Outlander PHEV is the world’s first plug-in hybrid crossover, and the overall performance of the Outlander can’t be beat: it consistently outperforms other SUVs in terms of efficiency by a remarkable 22%.
This past May, the 2018 Mitsubishi Outlander and Outlander PHEV received the coveted Best 5 All-Around Performance title from the Automotive Science Group. The Outlander PHEV is particularly impressive, as it has an all-electric driving range of 22 miles and boasts a fuel efficiency rating of 74 MPGe.* The Outlander also delivers in terms of fuel efficiency, boasting 30 mpg on the highway.* For the SUV segment, both numbers are especially impressive.
The Automotive Science Group with even more impressed with Mitsubishi vehicles, awarding the automaker with further titles. Mitsubishi was named the Best All-Around Performance Brand and Best Economic Performance Brand, and the 2018 Mirage was also awarded the Best 5 All-Around Performance Award and the Best Economic Performance Brand.
From the looks of it, Mitsubishi is propelling us into the future of automaking with its smart, efficient, and environmentally-conscious vehicles, and we couldn’t be more excited. To get in on the excitement, stop into Mountaineer Mitsubishi for a test drive.

Mitsubishi is a company that is all about value. Therefore, it should come as no surprise that one of its vehicles was named the “Best Value on the Road.”
According to a Mitsubishi press release, the 2016 Mitsubishi Outlander was named “Best Value on the Road.”
The prestigious title was granted to the Outlander during the 12th Annual Active Lifestyle Vehicle of the Year Awards in Chandler, Arizona.
The awards are granted to vehicles based upon their driving capabilities and their economic value. The 2016 Mitsubishi Outlander combines both of these aspects together to create the perfect vehicle for any active driver.
“It’s exciting to see the 2016 Outlander resonate so well among this group of active people,” said Don Swearingen, executive vice president of Mitsubishi Motors North America. “We’ve positioned this vehicle to be both versatile and a good value, so to see the car recognized as such supports our objective to give consumers what they want in a CUV.”

Just over a month after the pricing of the redesigned Outlander was announced, Mitsubishi has more news on the new model: due to the lowered MSRP and great value, Cars.com placed the 2016 Mitsubishi on top of Cars.com’s list of most affordable three-row crossovers.
The 2016 Mitsubishi Outlander was redesigned from the 2015 model, adding over one hundred design and engineering improvements to create a more stylish, safer, and quieter SUV, all with an MSRP below the price of the 2015 Outlander.
“We designed the 2016 Outlander to be an unmatched value in its segment, so it’s no surprise to us that it leads the way on the Cars.com list of most affordable 3-row crossovers,” said Don Swearingen, MMNA Executive Vice President. “From its long list of features, to available advanced safety technologies and a new eye-catching design, the seven passenger Outlander is a leader in value and reliability.”

Did you think you had seen all Mitsubishi has to offer? Think again. The automaker is switching it up, with its new design language being featured for the first time on a production vehicle. The 2016 Mitsubishi Outlander made its grand entrance at the New York International Auto Show earlier this month, and we like what we see.
“The 2016 Outlander has an eye-catching design aesthetic inside and out, and with its long list of engineering upgrades the new Outlander literally looks, drives and feels like an entirely new vehicle, making it an even more compelling value than before,” said Mitsubishi Motors North America executive vice president, Don Swearingen.
Mitsubishi designers and engineers left no panel unturned and no surface uncovered when it came to enhancing the vehicle. In fact, more than 100 modifications and improvements were made.
The front design of the new Outlander bears the name “Dynamic Shield.” More than an aesthetic, it is designed to better protect the vehicle and its passengers. Inside, even the steering wheel has been redesigned and rear seating reconfigured. Advanced technology is used throughout to make the vehicle safer and more comfortable.
We at Mountaineer Mitsubishi will, of course, be sure to keep you posted on the model’s arrival in our showroom. We can’t wait to get a closer look at the new Mitsubishi.
Annual Mitsubishi sales for 2014 ended with a strong December performance, as the automaker sold 6,545 vehicles, marking a 1.9% increase over December 2013 and the tenth consecutive month of year-over-year sales increases. That helped total sales for the year reach 77,643 units, a whopping 24.8% improvement over last year.
Highlights included the Outlander, Mirage, and Outlander Sport in particular. The latter experienced its best December ever, with 2,755 units sold and enjoyed a strong 24.5 percent overall sales increase for 2014 compared to last year. The Outlander was up 6.4 percent from 2013 while the Mirage continued its strong sales pace by yet again having over 1,000 units sold last month.
“As we move into 2015 we will start to introduce new versions of the Outlander with more refinement and power in what will be the first of a series of launches that will incorporate the brand’s new design language and vehicle packaging,” said Don Swearingen, executive VP.
We look forward to the New Year at Mountaineer Mitsubishi!
Three 2015 Mitsubishi models have just been named 2015 Top Safety Picks or better by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, including the Outlander, Outlander Sport, and Lancer.
Both the Lancer and the Outlander Sport achieved the highest possible score of “Good” in most of the Institute’s crashworthiness evaluations—including moderate overlap front, side, roof strength, and head restraint—as well as a score of “Acceptable” in the more difficult small overlap front crash test.
That was enough to get the coveted Top Safety Pick honors, but the Outlander went even one step further. It got a good rating in the small overlap front crash test and an advanced rating in frontal crash prevention thanks to its Forward Collision Mitigation technology, earning it the Top Safety Pick+ award!
“The Mitsubishi RISE safety body construction system is the perfect example of this kind of technology,” said Don Swearingen, executive VP at Mitsubishi. “In the event of an accident, energy is absorbed and deflected away from the occupant cell, which enhances passenger protection.”
At Mountaineer Mitsubishi, we’re proud to be selling some of the safest vehicles on the road!
It’s been a year since we first saw the 2014 Mitsubishi Outlander SE S-AWC hit lots around the states, so it’s about time we see how it’s been holding up long-run. After all, the initial response at launch is always telling of what to expect of the car when you first buy it, but it’s the long-term assessments that really judge the quality of the car.
Motor Trend recently wrote about a revisited Mitsubishi Outlander SE and gave the vehicle a year’s end review. Fortunately, they’ve got good things to say about the car in the long run. While some of the safety alerts tested nerves (as is true of most safety alarms, as people with a fire alarm near their kitchen will tell you), the folks at Motor Trend were pleased with their overall functionality, especially in bumper-to-bumper commutes. The adaptive cruise control helped their driver overall with long-term travel as it made the drive a lot smoother.
The car’s speed and acceleration are stable and reliable without bringing too much noise to passengers. The Outlander SE can also get up to highway speeds and maintain them without the protest drivers can often hear in other cars. It also yielded an average 24.0 mpg fuel economy.
Mountaineer Mitsubishi has plenty of options for you if you’d like to revisit the Outlander for yourself – or perhaps check it out for the first time. For pricing options and more, visit us or contact us today!
