Super All-Wheel Control now features four driver-selectable modes: NORMAL for everyday conditions, SNOW for wintry or loose terrain, LOCK for going off-road, and the new AWC ECO Mode, which sends power to two wheels during normal driving conditions to help save on fuel, yet can instantly transfer power to all four wheels the moment any slippage is detected for the ultimate balance of efficiency and control. S-AWC is available on Outlander SE, in addition to the top-flight GT trim.


Both available engines combine fun with frugality. Start with the fuel-efficient 2.4-liter 4-cylinder engine in the ES and SE. Incorporating a re-engineered MIVEC system that adds continuously-variable valve lift and timing, it delivers 166 horsepower on the road and 31 mpg2 at the pump. Or take the Outlander GT's 224-hp, 3.0-liter MIVEC V6. Made from durable, lightweight aluminum for less weight and better fuel efficiency, it offers plenty of oomph along with a respectable 28 mpg3 on the highway.

2 Transmission Options

The smooth-shifting CVT provides outstanding feel and fuel economy and also comes with Acceleration Control. The 3.0-liter MIVEC V6 has a 6-speed automatic offering a redesigned torque converter and a new final drive ratio that combine for enhanced fuel efficiency.

6 Speed Automatic Transmission

The 3.0-liter MIVEC V6 gets a refined 6-speed automatic that offers a redesigned torque converter and a new final drive ratio, which combine to provide enhanced fuel efficiency.


Paddle shifters merge the thrill and control of manual shifting with the convenience and ease of an automatic. Borrowed from our rally heritage, they let you downshift or upshift with a tap of your finger. Available only on Outlander GT.


Super All-Wheel Control is an integration of several advanced technologies that together take full advantage of the engine's power. The Active Front Differential (AFD) distributes engine power between left and right on the front axle. Active Sability Control (ASC) helps keep the vehicle on its intended path when cornering and the Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) along with Electronic Brakeforce Distribution (EBD) improves control and stability under hard braking.
