The newly redesigned Mitsubishi Outlander makes its debut in 2007. The most significant improvements over previous years are improved styling, the upgrade to a 3.0 L V6 engine capable of delivering 220 hp, and a 6-speed Sportronic automatic transmission. The previous generation was a 4-speed, with a 4 cylinder engine delivering 160 hp. Drawing inspiration from Mitsubishi's rally car expertise, the Outlander features AWD, a powerful engine, paddle shifting (XLS only), and MIVEC valve timing.

The Outlander is marketed as an XUV; a vehicle bringing the cargo room and off-road capabilities of an SUV, while also maintaining the size, fuel efficiency, and price of a car. The 2007 Outlander is 3 inches longer than its predecessor and includes 13 cubic feet of cargo space. Mitsubishi claims 19/25 mpg fuel efficiency for the AWD models, and 20/26 mpg for the 2WD, and a PZEV efficiency rating, although being listed as SULEV II by the U.S. Department of Energy.

It is available in three trim levels: ES, LS, and the XLS. All trim levels come equipped with front wheel drive, while the LS and XLS also include AWD and 50/50 fixed front to rear power split drive train options. The top of the line XLS model also includes third row seating that folds into a well in the trunk, allowing for up to seven passengers. Also, exclusive to the XLS is the steering-mounted paddle shifter; the ES and LS models both feature the Sportronic manually shifting as well, but located on the floor.

The Outlander commercial where the car shakes off the mud, and conjures up images of rally racing really worked on me.
