2022 Outlander MPG Ratings by Drivetrain Option

When measuring the Mitsubishi Outlander fuel efficiency, we need to analyze all Outlander configurations. The 2022 Mitsubishi Outlander’s front-wheel-drive version has a fuel economy rating of 24 mpg when driving in city traffic and 31 mpg at highway speeds. When upgrading to the all-wheel-drive version, the ratings drop slightly to 23 mpg and 30 mpg, respectively. Considering the Outlander’s size and capability, it offers great fuel efficiency ratings compare to most other three-row SUVs.

Other Outlander models, such as Outlander Sport and Outlander PHEV, are also very economical.

2022 Outlander Performance Features

The 2022 Mitsubishi Outlander can reach 60 miles per hour from a complete standstill in around 9.7 seconds, which is a respectable time for an SUV that’s built for purposes other than speed.
