Behind the Wheel: 2014 Mitsubishi Outlander SE and GT

By Trevor Dorchies | May 24, 2013
If you have a large family, usually you have to pony up some serious cash to transport everyone from point A to point B. Many  vehicles featuring a third row of seats start with high price and go even higher, and for many, they don't make the type of money to command a ride like that. Never fear, as we recently drove the 2014 Mitsubishi Outlander, and if you're the head of a large family and in need of a ride, you should check out our First Drive review of it. The third-generation Outlander features three-row seating (a perfect space for young kids), and starts at just under $24,000. Mitsubishi focused heavily on aerodynamics this time around with the Outlander, as seen on the new, rounded front-end. Other than that, exterior styling changes have been kept to a minimum. The interior is really where Mitsubishi kicked it up a notch. Was a notch enough though to catapult the 2014 Mitsubishi Outlander into the conversation of which full-size SUV to get? We took both engines, including the all-new 2.4-liter inline-4 cylinder mated to a continuously variable transmission and the carry-over 3.0-liter V-6 engine mated to a six-speed automatic transmission, out for a spin to help come to a decision. Want to know which one we recommend? Then check out our 2014 Mitsubishi Outlander First Drive.
