Old/New Mitsubishi Outlander Gets 2.0l Engine
The new 2.0-liter engine develops a maximum power of 148 PS at 6,000 rpm.
Both the new and the pre-facelift model are offered with either 2WD or AWD. Pricing for the old version starts at $21,800 while the new model is a bit more expensive - $27,100.
In separate news, the Japanese carmaker recently revealed the the 2010 Outlander for the US market, a model that is offered with two engine configurations, specifically tweaked for reduced consumption and decent power.
The entry model for the US market is a 2.4-liter four-cylinder powerplant that develops 167 horsepower while consumers looking for more power can opt for the 3.0-liter V6 configuration that puts out 226 horsepower. The current Outlander is offered with the same two engine versions in the United States and, although fuel consumption and emission figures for the revised model are not available, both units underwent modifications to become more environmentally-friendly.
Transmission options vary by engine configuration. For instance, if you buy the 2.4-liter version, you can equip the 2010 Outlander with either a 5-speed manual unit or a CVT. The 3.0-liter V6 configuration can be fitted with a 6-speed automatic with Sports Mode sequential shift.
Pricing for the car begins at $20,840 but would be obviously increased as you choose new feature packages to be installed.
