2011 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport Confirmed
John Koenig, executive vice president for operations at Mitsubishi Motors North America, has already confirmed the report for Automotive News and revealed the car will be powered by a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine. It will be offered in both front-wheel drive and all-wheel drive configurations and will be based on the Lancer sedan platform.
A couple of spyshots captured earlier this year revealed that Mitsubishi is working on a new crossover boasting a bulky appearance, somewhat like a Nissan Qashqai. The crossover engine lineup is said to comprise several engines, including Lancer’s 140-hp 2.0-litre DI-D configuration. Official details are yet to be disclosed.
The cX concept shown in 2007 was powered by a 1.8-liter clean diesel engine, featuring a variable geometry (VG) turbocharger for optimum boost control and a diesel oxidation catalyst (DOC) with diesel particulate filter (DPF) in the exhaust system. It complies with Euro 5 regulations.
