Mitsubishi Motors pulled the wraps off its Outlander GT prototype recently at the New York auto show, providing clear directional clues into the next generation of the popular Mitsubishi Outlander CUV.

The Outlander GT prototype is loaded with new technology, greater performance, higher fuel efficiency and an aggressive new design.

The prototype also features a revised exterior treatment, increased engine output, an advanced S-AWC system, 19-inch OZ racing wheels, polished aluminum roof, top-of-the-line Brembo brakes and the all-new FUSE Handsfree Media Gateway system.

A revised interior and freshly added electronic options also help to raise the luxury and comfort levels of the model.

The prototype features a sporty new exterior treatment inspired by Mitsubishi's own Lancer family of automotive products.

Designers sought to create a dynamic and athletic presence by utilizing new materials and a wider stance.

A “jet fighter” look grille, with design elements from the Lancer Evolution model, has been added to accent the boldly reshaped front bumper, side mirrors, fenders and hood.

Merging Mitsubishi’s experience in off-road and rally racing with production car development, the Outlander GT prototype features the revolutionary Super All Wheel Control (S-AWC) system.

More than just four-wheel drive, S-AWC is a handling system that provides increased handling, traction and stability, while still maintaining maximum fuel economy.
