Best of the Best

This SUV will go anywhere in any weather. My model has all the premium options and newest technology. It has a big V-6 engine and durable transmission with all wheel drive. This is the best and cheapest premium SUV available in the US. Be aware that this does not come with a spare tire. I bought a full size spare. Also, the parking brake is electric, not the trusted manual handbrake. The long warranty added additional reassurance to an already extremely reliable vehicle.

Premium Features Without the Premium Cost
from Redlands, CA
on Sun Dec 30 2018
I have owned the 2019 Outlander SEL 2WD with the SEL Touring Package for two weeks and absolutely love driving the vehicle. Paying thousands less than other three row SUVs with comparable features and options, the Outlander SEL with the Touring Package comes with forward collision mitigation, late departure warning, adaptive cruise control, power glass sunroof, multi-view camera system, LED high/low bean headlights and foglights, heated front seats and steering wheel, and a 710w Rockford Fosgate audio system.
I spent months researching three row SUVs then test drove various offerings from Nissan, Ford, and Volkswagen before settling on the Outlander. I am a family man with two small boys and do need an SUV that pretends to be a sports car. 166hp is sufficient in getting me from point A to B (home to work, weekend errands, and occasional trips with the family to visit friends and family). Third row seats are a bit cramp for adults, but I feel that children and adults under 5'6 can sit in the rear with reasonable comfort. Finally, what I like about the Outlander is the drive and feel is very similar to my Camry SE 4-cyl.
If you are looking for an inexpensive and practical three row SUV with great factory warranty, premium features, good reliability, please consider the Outlander. Keep in mind that this vehicle will not satisfy your urge to be "fast and furious."

Excellent SUV with some serious shortcomings
from Albuquerque New Mexico
on Fri Nov 23 2018
Mitsubishi upgraded the 2019 Outlander GT in significant ways (electronics, suspension, exterior design and rear passenger AC vents. Great! However, they did all this by eliminating the GPS map!!! , the Front Collision Mitigation System!!! and the CD/Dvd Player! And, they added some very loud beeps (e.g. when you first turn the engine on you get a deafening, piercing beep. There are other beeps that go off every time you press something!!! This is the noisiest Mitsu I've ever owned, and I've owned three! Clearly the Mitsu engineers listened to the wrong people. I know this to be true because complaints are already pouring in on various internet sites, so it's not just me. For me, the bottom line for this car is a mixed bag of excellent upgrades coupled with significant shortcomings. Is this vehicle worth the price? Given its shortcomings I'd say no. If you are not concerned by the constant beeping, the lack of a GPS map and a CD/DVD player, and the absence of the very important FCM safety feature, then you may not like the 2019 Outlander GT. In my view Mitsubishi failed us big time with this vehicle!
