2017 Mitsubishi Outlander at O?Brien Mitsubishi of Normal near Bloomington, IL
Are you looking for a new SUV? Then you’ve come to the right place! O’Brien Mitsubishi of Normal has a full lineup of SUVs from those that tout a feeling of rugged adventure to those that maximize practicality and efficiency. While reading about an SUV is a great way to start the car-buying process, we recommend that all drivers stop by and actually take a test drive in a number of vehicles. A test drive in any of our Mitsubishi cars helps you experience the vehicle in a way that reading about it won’t and ultimately will lead you to decide which vehicle is the best pick for you and your family. But until you stop by, we will give a brief overview of one of our most popular SUVs.
2017 Mitsubishi Outlander Model Details
Our 2017 Mitsubishi Outlander is a compact crossover SUV that fits, not just five people, but seven people. Drivers can opt for the 4-cylinder ES, SE, and SEL models, as well as the V-6 GT model. Each comes with front- or all-wheel drive, depending on what the driver needs. The base engine on the ES, SE, and SEL models is a 2.4-liter, 4-cylinder engine that produces a maximum of 166 horsepower. It is paired with a continuously variable automatic transmission. The GT model features a larger, 3.0-liter V-6 engine that generates a maximum of 224 horsepower. It accelerates from 0 to 60 mph in about 8.0 seconds, which is pretty impressive for a crossover. It does upgrade towing capacity to 3,500 pounds versus 1,500 in the 2016 Mitsubishi Outlander. Just note that you do have to fill with premium fuel when towing excessive amounts. Our Normal, IL Mitsubishi dealers would love to give you a test drive!
