Welcome to Boardman Mitsubishi, the home for all your automotive needs in the greater Youngstown, OH, area. The Outlander continues to push the boundaries of what's possible from a compact crossover SUV in style and substance. As the arrival of the 2023 Outlander model approaches, our SUV experts offer a sneak peek at the features you can expect to see.

2023 Mitsubishi Outlander Exterior Style


After a complete redesign in 2022, we don't expect too much change to the Outlander's exterior. It simply doesn't need it. The Outlander's bold front fascia features slim LED daytime running lights (DRLs) that rise like eyebrows above the wide-set and broad LED headlights. Chrome trim ties the DRLs to the low-slung fog lamps via the curve of the honeycomb grille, completing its aggressive stare.

The chiseled side body and flared fenders accentuate the Outlander's broad, powerful stance. The rear fascia blends jutting taillights into the rear hatch in a clean, modern style. Dual exhaust ports sit flush with the rear bumper, providing a smooth, refined finish. The Outlander rolls on 18- or 20-inch alloy wheels in various types, so no matter what Youngstown adventure you decide on, you’ll move in style.

2023 Mitsubishi Outlander Interior

The Outlander won Mitsubishi its first Wards 10 Best Interiors award in 2022, and you can expect the same luxurious interior on the 2023 model. Slipping inside the Outlander's cabin, you immediately notice the upscale appointments. Semi-aniline leather upholstery cradles you in sophisticated comfort, while soft-touch materials and premium chrome and metal finishes add a level of refinement not found in other vehicles in the class.

Heated and ventilated front seats, heated rear outboard seats, and a tri-zone climate control system keep everyone comfortable. Your eight-way power-adjusting driver's seat and power side-view mirrors come with a memory function activated by your key fob, returning them to your preferred positions on entry. The 40/20/40 split-folding second-row seat offers multiple configurations for cargo and passengers.

2023 Mitsubishi Outlander Performance

Under the hood, you find Mitsubishi's MIVEC 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine with dual overhead cams and direct injection technology. Mitsubishi paired this engine with a continuously variable transmission. As a result, this powertrain produces 181 horsepower and 181 lb-ft of torque in an efficient operation. Enhanced efficiency comes from the engine's mirror bore coating and the use of an electronically controlled variable valve timing system and its cooled exhaust gas recirculation.

The Outlander's impressive economy ratings will save you money at the pump. The Outlander achieves an EPA-estimated rating of 24 mpg driving around town, 31 mpg on the highway, and 27 mpg combined. Your Outlander can tow up to 2,000 pounds when properly equipped and now features Trailer Stability Assist, which continuously monitors your trailer. When the system detects drift or sway, it engages subtle braking to bring your trailer back in line with your Outlander, keeping you on your intended path.

The Class II Towing Package includes your tow hitch, wiring harness, a two-inch ball and mount, and a protective cover for your receiver. You can use this receiver for your general purpose trailer and haul a pop-up camper, jet skis, ATVs, snowmobiles, and more. Or, you can attach a bike rack or cargo basket to the hitch for your day trips to the beach.

You can rely on the superior control of the Super All-Wheel-Control system, Mitsubishi's 4WD technology inspired by rally racing. The S-AWC system employs direct coupling with quick torque response. It works seamlessly with the six selectable drive modes, including a new MUD mode, so you’ll drive confidently in any weather or road conditions.

Mitsubishi has also redesigned the suspension system using lightweight aluminum components with a high rigidity factor. It has further incorporated hollow stabilizer bars and additional anti-vibration support to deliver the smoothest ride.

2023 Mitsubishi Outlander Driver-Assist Systems

Every Outlander comes with Mitsubishi's MI-PILOT Assist, a suite of driver-assist technologies designed to elevate your commute and keep you safe. For example, an Adaptive Cruise Control system keeps you at a preset speed and distance while in traffic. A Speed Limit Assist system automatically detects changing speed limits and adjusts your speed accordingly. Should traffic slow to a stop, the Traffic Jam Assist system automatically slows you down and restarts with the touch of a button to return you to your preset speed.

A Lane Keep Assist system uses gentle steering correction to keep you centered in your lane. You also get Lane Departure Warning, which alerts you when it detects an unintentional drift. The Blind Spot Warning with Lane Change Assist system monitors your blind spots, alerting you when vehicles enter them. This system allows you to change lanes with confidence.

You also get the Forward Collision Mitigation with Pedestrian Detection system. This technology uses cameras and radar to scan the way forward, alerting you to potential obstacles. If you fail to react to the alerts, the system will engage emergency brake support to help mitigate or avoid a possible accident.

The Rear Cross Traffic Alert and Rear Automatic Emergency Braking systems use similar technology to watch behind your Outlander for objects and cars approaching from either side while in reverse. This system sends out visual and audio alerts and engages brake support if necessary. The vehicle also houses the Rear Seat Alert system, which activates when the rear doors open before departing. Once you arrive at your destination and shut off your Outlander, the system alerts you to check the back seat for objects, pets, or passengers. You'll never forget anything in your car again.

At Boardman Mitsubishi, we understand the popularity of the Outlander among SUV drivers. Perhaps you have a growing family and need the extra passenger room or would rather use the space for hauling gear for your next adventure. Whatever your needs, the Outlander has more space in its class than other compact crossover SUVs and the luxurious appointments to truly set it apart.
