Motors North America Inc. plans to â€śreshape the imageâ€ť of the cross/utility vehicle when it unveils its â€™07 Outlander at the New York International Auto Show April 13.
The â€™07 Outlander will be powered by an all-new 3L V-6 engine with variable valve timing the auto maker refers to as theInnovative Variable timing Electronic Control system. It is mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission with 1-touch â€śSportronicâ€ť manual shifting and adaptive electronic controls.
Mitsubishi says the CUV will be available with All Wheel Control, what it bills as an advanced all-wheel-drive system.
The 2-piece â€śflap-foldâ€ť tailgate makes for easy cargo loading, the auto maker says, and the in-floor stowable third-row seat enhances cargo capacity.
The Outlander will come standard with a Bluetooth hands-free cell phone interface and an advanced â€śFAST-Keyâ€ť access system. Options include a 650-watt audio system, DVD entertainment system and hard-drive based navigation system.
