2010 Mitsubishi Outlander GT prototype gets Evo nose

Mitsubishi Motors pulled the wraps off its Outlander GT. The world debut occurred at the 2009 New York International Auto Show. The Outlander GT Prototype features a revised exterior treatment, increased engine output, an advanced S-AWC system, 19-inch OZ Racing wheels, polished aluminum roof, Brembo brakes and the all-new FUSE Handsfree Media Gateway system. A revised interior and freshly added electronic options also help to raise the luxury and comfort levels of the Outlander GT Prototype.

Improving upon the all-aluminum 3.0L SOHC MIVEC V6 currently found in the Outlander XLS, the Outlander GT Prototype features a reduction in intake restriction and an optimization of both camshaft timing and compression ratio for engine efficiency. With these adjustments the maximum engine output for the Outlander GT Prototype has been raised by 10 hp, for a total of 230 hp, and torque output is available earlier for more practical city driving and improved pickup.


The Outlander GT Prototype features a sporty new exterior treatment inspired by Mitsubishi’s own Lancer Evolution, specifically the new-look font end. Slightly lower with the use of a shorter and stiffer suspension, the Outlander GT Prototype gives a sporty look with 19-inch OZ Racing wheels and large Brembo brakes.

    I have owned 7 Mitsubishi’s and this is my second Outlander. My 2010 XLS is the best handling so far. Everyone should drive one, if you’re not ready to buy, you can always arrange for a test drive at your friendly local Mitsubishi Dealer. This is a great ride!
