The 2019 Outlander PHEV is equipped with a 2.0-liter engine and twin 60Kw electric motors coupled to a 12 kWh Lithium-Ion battery. Combined power output is rated at 190 horsepower and it is capable of doing up to 22 miles on electric power alone. The EPA efficiency figures are stated as 74MPGe but you will only achieve measurably better consumption figures than the conventionally-powered Outlander if you regularly take advantage of that all-electric range in your daily commute.
A full charge takes up to 8 hours form a standard household power outlet, while a DC fast-charge outlet can add 80 percent of charge in as little as 25 minutes. The interior is comfortable and spacious if a bit dated compared to newer rivals. The PHEV is available in the well-equipped SEL and GT trims which means you get leather seats (heated up front) and a 7-inch touchscreen with smartphone integration as standard. Keyless access, a power liftgate and adaptive cruise control can also be added. Prices for the Outlander PHEV SEL start at $35,795 and include a 10-year/100,000 mile limited powertrain warranty.
