Greetings my lovelies! Long time no posts... *shrugs* I know it's been a minute. This post is actually a bit overdue but due to some missing photos from my phone being broken etc. I've decided to recover a few and give my honest review now. There will be some stock photos in this post. :)
So I got another amazing opportunity with Mitsubishi to test drive one of the best SUV's in their class... the Outlander GT! Hooray! All I could think was " 3rd row 3rd row 3rd row... ". Having a big family and 3 kids, it's very necessary to have a spacious car with extra room for more people. I am all about 3rd row vehicles because it is so convenient yet you can still store it away for extra room in the back. You can almost fool somebody and tell them you only have enough room for so much... ha! Ok, on to the fun details...
I got mine in a beautiful snowy white color in the standard basic GT model. The Outlander comes in 4 different models (ES 2WD, SE 2WD, SE S-AWC, and GT S-AWC). The GT model is a 240 Horsepower, Super All Wheel Control (S- AWC) 3.0 Liter V-6 Engine, 6 speed automatic transmission with steering wheel paddle shifters. Loved the FAST-key passive entry system with push button on/off engine switch. Makes it easier for moms to hop in the car and start without digging through your massive purse looking for those keys! I know this is a common struggle with everyday people so why is every car not made that way? Makes me wonder... on to some photos!
Leather wrapped steering wheel with mounted audio controls and Sportronic® Steering wheel paddle shifters. Heated front row seats. 6.1" Touch panel display audio system.
Sleek 18-in. alloy wheel design

Compared to the Outlander Sport I drove, I am shocked to see there is not a huge price gap between the two. I say this is made for anyone who needs more room! It was not intimidating to drive for being a 3rd row SUV, which are normally very large in size. Really enjoyed the ride so much and my kids loved it the most. The model was obviously the standard model out of the GT but you can always add premium options to amp it up to suit your luxury needs. The car was ranked #1 on Kelley Blue Book's KBB.com "5-Year Cost to Own" list for the Mid-Size SUV/Crossover segment. That pretty much won me over. Good info to know! Not the best fuel efficiency car in the market but not the worst either. It was a great experience once again with Mitsubishi. I would definitely consider looking into one of these in the near future.
My last moment with this awesome car at the market... do not want to say goodbye... kind of sad.
