Power and Performance
This all-new Outlander is ready for action. A brand new 2.5-liter inline four-cylinder engine gets you off to a strong start with 181 horsepower and 181 pound-feet of torque. Torque kicks in in the low to mid-range rpm range, so you can count on a sporty ride around life’s twists and turns. Compared to the Outlander’s previous engine, this one is stronger and more efficient.
The engine is mated to a continuously variable transmission (CVT) that sends power to the front wheels. This CVT mimics a traditional automatic transmission, which supplies a smooth ride and throws in an eight-speed sport mode for good measure.
If you’re in need of extra trail action, add all-wheel drive to your Outlander. The all-wheel-drive system even comes with an extra drive mode to help you master the mud.
