Mitsubishi Outlander Prototype GT Bound For New York

Outlandergrille

Next week is the New York auto show, and it’s gearing up to be a busier event than we had imagined. The auto industry is certainly retracting, but this is the last chance of the car-show season to display new wares. That’s why Mitsubishi will show off a version of its Outlander SUV. There are no specifics, but the company says it’ll be more powerful and fuel efficient than the current Outlander’s available 3.0-liter V-6.

We’re going to go out on a limb and guess that besides getting the Lancer’s grille treatment, the SUV will also sport the Ralliart version of that sedan’s 237-horsepower, turbo four-cylinder engine. The 3.0 V-6 in the Outlander puts out 220 hp. Surprisingly, the mileage isn’t that different. The turbo in the Lancer gets 17/25 mpg city/hwy; the V-6 in the Outlander gets 17/23 mpg.

We’ll learn more next week in New York. A few more teaser images are below.

I am not sure about this look for SUV. This is another case when style is not match for function
