Mitsubishi Outlander GT Prototype First Look
The teaser photos released by Mitsubishi presents an Outlander with a restyled look, now boasting the same front "Jet Fighter" grille as the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution. In addition, the manufacturer promises the new CUV will use "a number of exciting design elements that help distinguish the Outlander GT Prototype."
Engine wise, the Outlander GT Prototype will make use of a more powerful 3.0l SOHC MIVEC V6 engine, as well as a "Super-All-Wheel-Control System offering superior handling and control". The CUV will also use an Idle Neutral Logic that automatically shifts the transmission into neutral during vehicle standstill.
The first Mitsubishi Outlander rolled out of the manufacturer's assembly lines as the Airtrek in 2001, receiving its current name in 2003. The GT Prototype, if it will see production, will be the third generation Outlander.
Further details about the GT CUV will most likely become available shortly, as less than as the New York Auto Show is less than a week away.
