More power for Mitsubishi Outlander Sport / RVR

New, larger 2.4-litre engine boosts output by 20 horsepower

2015 Mitsubishi 2.4L Outlander Sport / RVR 

Mitsubishi is introducing a more powerful version of its 2015 Outlander Sport five-passenger crossover, which is sold as the Mitsubishi RVR in Canada.

Its newly-available, larger displacement 2.4-liter MIVEC 4-cylinder engine is rated at 168 horsepower – a 20 horsepower increase over the current 2.0-litre powerplant, which remains standard in ES trim level.

The 2.4-litre engine is standard in up-level Outlander Sport 2.4 ES and Outlander Sport 2.4 GT models for 2015.

The Sport 2.4 ES features a black centre bumper to visually differentiate itl from the base ES. The Sport 2.4 GT adds such features as a power driver's seat, leather-wrapped parking brake handle, aluminum pedals, and exterior enhancements including a black centre bumper and black roof rails and outside mirrors with LED turn indicators.

Presumably, the same changes will apply to the RVR models in Canada but Mitsubishi Canada has been unable to confirm.
