Since Mitsubishi unveiled the 2011 Mitsubishi Outlander GT prototype at the 2009 New York Auto Show, the Japanese carmaker has been busy trying to reprogram and improve it. They stated with the engine, placing a SOHC 3.0-liter V6 into the model that'll create an extra 10-hp, and increase fuel economy. The 2011 Outlander will also have improved handling by having the suspension stiffened and fitted with larger brakes.
The 2011 Outlander GT will also borrow heavily from the Lancer Evolution, specifically the Evolution's Super All-Wheel-Control system and 4WD. In addition, the Lancer has provided styling inspiration for the 2011 Outlander with a new grille, front bumper, fenders and hood, and a polished aluminum roof panel. The interior of the 2011 Outlander GT has also been updated to include leather and more technology.
