Mitsubishi Outlander GT

The Mitsubishi Outlander GT will show at the New York Motor Show


The picture above is the Mitsubishi Outlander GT Concept (which is not a Photoshop mis-hap – just another version of a car maker’s ‘tease’ image, this time blurred). This is Mitsubishi’s efforts to make the Outlander more appealing, and from what we can see it’s taken a design cue from the Lamborghini Reventon, by putting a ‘Stealth Fighter’ nose on the front. Actually, as a blurred image, the front end does look a little reminiscent of the Lagonda Concept we saw at Geneva last month. Might work, but a bit hard to tell from this picture!

But we won’t have to wait long to see proper pictures of the car, as it is due to be shown next week at the New York Motor Show.

It does look as though the re-design won’t be the only change to the Outlander. Expect to see a fair few techno-gizmos on the car to make it more contemporary – read that as eco-credentials. Said to feature a system called Idle Neutral Logic,  to save fuel and reduce emissions. Yet another variation on the Stop/Start theme, but this one just sticks the car in neutral when you’re idling. Be interesting to see what impact that has – can’t really see it being much, but I suppose it all helps. There will also be something called ‘Super All Wheel Control System’ which claims to improve handling and dynamics.

Although the 3.0 litre V6 Mitsubishi Outlander GT is badged as a concept, expect to see the car in UK showrooms early next year, with a price tag around £22,500.
