Mitsubishi has been in the U.S. since 1982, and although there have been some rough patches; it appears that Mitsubishi is standing strong in the U.S. Mitsubishi announced on December 26th, 2015 that the company has sold a total of Five Million Mitsubishi Cars in the U.S. That’s an average of about 15,000 cars a year!
Since first appearing in the United States, Mitsubishi had brought many great vehicles to us including the Galant, Montero, and one of our personal favorites, the Mitsubishi Eclipse. Also, we can’t forget the recently retired model the Lancer Evolution. In addition to these great past models, Mitsubishi has great things to come for the brand including the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV, a hybrid model, and other 2016 models currently available, such as the 2016 Mitsubishi Outlander, i-MiEV and Lancer.
In addition to selling over 5 Million cars, Mitsubishi has continually increased sales the last few months. By the last few months, I mean the last 21 months of consecutive increases over the previous year. It is clear that Mitsubishi is finding a permanent home in the U.S. and that the brand is attracting loyal followers that look forward to see what is next!
Here at Don Robinson Mitsubishi, we couldn’t be more excited to see what the next great thing for Mitsubishi is! Until then, stop by and see our great stock of 2016 Mitsubishi models!
Since its production, the 2016 Mitsubishi Outlander has been one of the most popular compact SUVs on the market, and the best-selling vehicle in Mitsubishi’s lineup. The incredible success of the Outlander has caused the company to look into expanding the nameplate’s family, offering an Outlander Plug-in Hybrid variant for American consumers.
Currently, most buyers of the 2016 Outlander have opted for the available V6 engine, a feature not offered by any other vehicle in the compact SUV segment. When I say most, I mean most, too – a staggering seventy percent of consumers bought the V6 over the more economical four-cylinder engine.
The Outlander Plug-in Hybrid is being offered as a more fuel efficient alternative to other engines in the lineup. The PHEV will come with a Twin Motor 4-wheel-drive drivetrain, along with a 2.0-liter motor powering the front wheels and an electric motor in the back. That electric motor will be powered by a 12 kWh battery.
The 2016 Mitsubishi Outlander Plug-in Hybrid is getting a May 2016 release date in the United States. The success of the hybrid might help pave the way for future PHEVs in the future. Tell us at Don Robinson Mitsubishi if you think you might want the 2016 Outlander PHEV model!
When you need to transport a lot of people, you need a big vehicle. And, larger vehicles almost always cost more than their smaller counterparts. But, you don’t have to break the bank to get the right-sized vehicle. The 2016 Mitsubishi Outlander was recently ranked number one in Cars.com’s list of the Most Affordable 3-Row Crossovers.
“We designed the 2016 Outlander to be an unmatched value in its segment, so it’s no surprise to us that it leads the way on the Cars.com list of most affordable 3-row crossovers,” said Don Swearingen, MMNA Executive Vice President. Swearingen goes on to say, “from its long list of features, to available advanced safety technologies and a new eye-catching design, the seven-passenger Outlander is a leader in value and reliability.”
The 2016 Outlander has a starting price of only $22,995. And, even if you bump up to the well-equipped SEL trim, it still only starts at $24,995. The new Outlander features over 100 engineering and design improvements over the previous model year, including its new stellar front end design.
When putting together its list of crossovers, Cars.com considered more than just price. It also weighed five years of fuel costs and the car’s residual value after five years. And, to be considered for the list, a vehicle has to come equipped with an automatic transmission, power driver’s seat, rearview camera, Bluetooth connectivity, and a USB port.
The 2016 Outlander SEL has all of these features and more. And, making it even more of a value is the fact that it is backed by an industry-leading 10-year/100,000-mile powertrain limited warranty.
If you are looking for a 3-row crossover that will still leave money in your pocket, then come take a look at the 2016 Mitsubishi Outlander available today at Don Robinson Mitsubishi.
