US-Spec 2010 Mitsubishi Outlander Teased

Mitsubishi launched the 2010 Outlander in Australia in September and the company is currently preparing the debut of the redesigned model in other sides of the world, including in the United States. Before the upcoming release, which is projected to take place in the remaining months of the year, Mitsubishi teased us once again by publishing a preview on the official website of the company.

Obviously, there are no specifications available at this point but, in Australia, the car is offered with two engine configurations.

A 2.4-liter 16-valve powerplant generates 167 horsepower at 6,000 rpm and 226 Nm of torque at 4,100 rpm. It is mated to either a five-speed manual transmission or a CVT with Sports Mode sequential style shift changes and INVECS Smart Logic.

The second unit is a 3.0-liter V6 that has an output of 226 horsepower at 6,250 rpm and 291 Nm of torque at 3,750 rpm. It is connected to a six-speed automatic transmission with Sports Mode sequential style shift change and INVECS Smart Logic.

“The new Mitsubishi Outlander is squarely targeted at couples and young families who are on-the-go people who are focused on wringing every last second of enjoyment out of life," Mitsubishi Motors Australia Limited president and CEO, Robert McEniry, said in a release.

“You can throw your surfboard or mountain bike in the back, plug your iPod into the USB port, and you – and up to six of your friends – can go places you’ve never been in comfort, style and safety,”
McEniry said.
