TrueDelta Reviews the Real Gas Mileage of the Mitsubishi Outlander

Mitsubishi Outlander Real Gas Mileage: Pros
YearComment
2014 The 2014 redesign reduced the Kia Sorento V6 AWD's EPA figures from 20 mpg city, 26 mpg highway to 18/24.The Outlander GT goes farther on a gallon of gas, especially on the highway: 20/28. Among three-row AWD crossovers, you won't find better fuel economy ratings (though the larger, more powerful Acura MDX comes close with 18/27). Before you start calculating your fuel cost savings, though, consider that premium unleaded is recommended in the Mitsubishi, but not the Kia. The EPA figures assume that the AWD system is in its normal mode. You can also select an eco mode that more completely disengages the rear wheels. In either mode they'll be engaged if the front's slip. You can also select a snow mode or instruct the system to constantly engage the rear wheels. In real-world driving, the trip computer reported low 20s in typical suburban driving, but as high as 30 in Eco mode with a warmed-up engine, a feather-light right foot, and a healthy distance between red lights. On a 70-mph highway, the two-way average was 25.5. At speeds over 60 crossovers often have trouble achieving their EPA highway ratings. see full Mitsubishi Outlander review

One of the leading incentives to buy. Cruising at 55-60, 30MPG is extremely reasonable. We cruise the interstates at 70-73 and get 27 in the summer and 24 in the winter (gas blending may be cause of differences) see full Mitsubishi Outlander review

A complete pig.
