2004 Mitsubishi Outlander

The Outlander receives a more power version of the 2.4 liter engine this year, but this compact crossover SUV is otherwise unchanged.

The 2.4 liter inline four has been boosted to 160 horsepower and 162 pound-feet of torque.  A four-speed automatic continues to be the only transmission option, but a manual shift feature is also included.  Fuel economy has also improved slightly, and is now estimated at 20/26 mpg.

The Outlander continues with four styles, but Mitsubishi is planning to expand the model lineup for 2005.  This year, buyers may choose between the XL, XL AWD, XLS, or the XLS AWD.  The XL comes with all the basic necessities, like full power accessories, cruise control, a split-folding rear seat, a CD player and a full size spare.  The XLS adds a few upscale touches, like keyless entry and alloy wheels, and is eligible for options like a sunroof and premium with an Infinity sound system.

Many reviewers have listed interior and cargo room as the Outlander's best feature. Unfortunately, the folding seat will not go completely flat, which may hinder some loading needs.  There are numerous pockets and compartments for additional storage.  The Outlander's tall cabin offers ample headroom for both front and rear riders, but leg room may be a little cramped for taller passengers.
