The 2022 Mitsubishi Outlander towing capacity is 2,000 pounds and the Outlander GT towing capacity reaches up to 3,500 pounds when properly equipped. When you combine the towing abilities of the Mitsubishi Outlander with its interior cargo space, you end up with a vehicle capable of helping you move a lot of cargo, and an excellent option the next time you’re getting away for a weekend, whether you need to load up your cargo space with camping gear or want to tow an ATV or personal watercraft to ride and enjoy. If you’re considering a new or used SUV, here’s what you need to know about the Mitsubishi Outlander’s towing and cargo capabilities to help you decide if it’s the right SUV for you.
2022 Mitsubishi Outlander Towing Capacity
As a hybrid SUV, the Mitsubishi Outlander is an outstanding towing vehicle offering some of the highest towing capacity of its type. The Mitsubishi Outlander comes with a towing capacity up to 2,000 pounds, and a GT trim capable of up to 3,500 pounds, so you have all the power you need to tow on your next drive.
Towing with your Outlander is also safer with the use of its new Trailer Stability Assist feature. The safety system works to monitor the sway of your trailer as you drive and identify potentially dangerous shifts. If your trailer begins to move out of alignment, the Outlander’s Trailer Stability Assist automatically applies brakes to regain control and keep it safely in tow.
Mitsubishi Outlander Towing Customization
The Mitsubishi Outlander comes with a versatile towing system featuring a tow hitch, ball mount with a 2-inch ball, a protective cover for the 2-inch receiver and wiring harness to allow you to connect your trailer’s wiring to the Outlander for tail light integration. The Outlander is also adaptable to alternative towing mounts if your desired trailer requires a different mount.
The towing capability also combines with easy use of rear-mounted or rooftop racks which make it easy to transport additional storage, bikes, kayaks, or canoes. When you consider all the adaptability options, you are left with an SUV that has everything you need to load up and hit the road, no matter where you’re heading or what you intend to do once you get there.
Mitsubishi Outlander Cargo Space
With 2,000 pounds of towing power, you can carry a great deal behind your Mitsubishi Outlander, but sometimes you need just a little bit more storage space, and the good news is the Outlander has you covered in those situations, too. The Outlander seats up to seven passengers in its default seat positions, with ample head and leg room. This means that not only can you load up a big family or group of friends, but if needed, you can fold seats down to ramp up the carrying capacity.
With all the seats up in a Mitsubishi Outlander, you have 11.7 cubic feet of storage space to load up. By simply folding down one row of seating the Outlander nearly triples its interior storage capacity to an impressive 33.5 cubic feet. While that is often enough space for whatever you need to carry, if you have a great deal of cargo to go with your towing, then the Outlander has the ability to convert to the largest interior storage space in its class with an unmatched 79.7 cubic feet behind the front seats.
No matter what your plans with your Mitsubishi Outlander are, with such a diverse range of both towing and interior storage options, you can customize your Outlander to meet your needs and compare it against other SUVs in the Mitsubishi lineup to see which has the right dimensions and performance.
Mitsubishi Outlander Performance
With such effective towing capabilities, it should come as no surprise that the Mitsubishi Outlander has an engine that is capable of putting in a powerful performance underneath its hood. The Outlander comes with a 2.5 liter, four-cylinder engine that can deliver 181 pound feet of torque and 181 horsepower performance. The Outlander is available with a standard front wheel drivetrain, or optional all-wheel drive for those interested in a car that can handle even the roughest terrain and weather conditions. Each drive train option offers a different MPG rating, ranging from an EPA-estimated 23 mpg city and 31 mpg highway.
The Outlander’s engine provides drivers with a smooth and enjoyable experience, whether carrying a full load or driving with no load attached. The engine also has excellent pickup, allowing you to get to speed quickly, which is particularly important when you are towing or carrying a full load of cargo and need to turn onto a high-speed road. With the extra juice, the engine can get the job done no matter if you’re heading for a weekend of fun at the lake, or a day around town running errands.
These wonderful towing and cargo features make the Mitsubishi Outlander an excellent choice for your next SUV purchase. Its versatility and reliability let you be confident not only that it will be an excellent car when you leave the dealership, but that you’ll continue to love the way it drives for many years and many miles yet to come.
