Mitsubishi Outlander Fuel Economy: Pros
Year Body/Powertrain Comment
2010 4dr SUV 230-hp 3.0L V6 6-sp shiftable automatic AWD I got 18-23 in the city,and 25-31 highway, very good for a v6.
2008 4dr SUV 230-hp 3.0L V6 6-sp shiftable automatic 4WD 22.45 mpg US on the first measured tank included much small town, considerable city, and moderate highway driving, plus a long climb up to a lake 2250 feet above us.
2007 4dr SUV 230-hp 3.0L V6 6-sp shiftable automatic 4WD 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)
2007 4dr SUV 230-hp 3.0L V6 6-sp shiftable automatic FWD Low fuel economy compare to other in the same category
2003 4dr SUV 230-hp 3.0L V6 6-sp shiftable automatic FWD I was always surprised at the great mileage I got. Routinely I got 23-25 MPG city and 28-31 highway.
