New York 2015: If A Mitsubishi Outlander Debuts In The Big Apple, Does Anyone Care?

The 2016 Mitsubishi Outlander gets an all new look – and nothing else.
While Mitsubishi touts a quieter ride and an all-new look, the powertrains are carried over. I don’t think that will be enough to keep the Outlander competitive.

- Robert I have had 4th gen 1996 model for many years and enjoy driving as much now as when I first purchased it - has 190 hp variant with just the right amount of power for most all driving situations!
- ToolGuy Meanwhile in Germany...
- Donald More stuff to break god I love having a nanny in my truck... find a good tuner and you can remove most of the stupid stuff they add like this and auto park when the doors open stupid stuff like that
- John Williams Sounds like a Burnout Special you can put together on any 5.0 F150. Whoever said this was Cars and Coffee bait is right on the money.
- ToolGuy Question: F-150 FP700 ( Bronze or Black) supercharger kit is legal in 50 states, while the Mustang supercharger kit is banned in California -- why??
The UK experience was that the Outlander PHEV was an unexpected success for its dealers. Mitsubishi expanded its dealer base in the UK (dealers were probably expecting to sell more Mirage etc) and then they had a hit with the Outlander PHEV, instead bringing around a different class of customer, a customer with a desirable car for trade in. http://www.businesscar.co.uk/news/2015/mitsubishi-leads-uk-plug-in-car-market-in-outlander-phev
Makes me kind of sad as a (more or less) satisfied driver of a 2004 Sportback Ralliart. Mitsu has had some fairly cool vehicles, just not lately. My one biggest complaint about the Sportback is the fact they only sold it with an A/T, but I bought it used to begin with. It was sitting rather forlorn at a dealer's lot in and amongst the trucks and SUVs, completely overlooked. Admittedly, I get a fair amount of comments (mostly from younger folks) that wonder if it is a "true" Ralliart. It looks the part, if nothing else...and it's been a great hauler for me when I do doggie-rescue runs.
