Mitsubishi Outlander ES

Mitsubishi offered the new Outlander for the 2007 model year. Their new achievement offers a level of user technology generally associated with sport-utility vehicles. It features a hard drive navigation system, a 650-watt Premium Audio system, Sirius satellite radio with six month pre-paid subscription and hands-free calling through Bluetooth. The new model will be available in four trim lines for 2008, including the new 4-cylinder ES and Special Edition models and the V6-powered Mitsubishi Outlander LS and sport/luxury XLS models. The new ES variant features a standard remote keyless entry system, and all models include a standard anti-theft engine immobilizer and security alarm system. The carmaker adds the FAST key system that allows the driver to unlock the car simply by having the remote in a pocket or purse and grasping the handle on either of the front doors or the tailgate. A DVD rear seat entertainment system is available as an accessory for all 2008 Mitsubishi Outlander models. The RSE features a flip-down 9-inch wide-screen LCD and includes a remote control and one set of infrared wireless headphones. If the Outlander is equipped with both, the versatile configuration allows front and rear occupants to watch different DVD programs, or the same program. Steering wheel-mounted controls for the cruise control system are standard for Mitsubishi Outlander Special Edition, LS and XLS and are included with the optional Convenience Package offered for the ES models. When the Mitsubishi Outlander is equipped with the optional navigation system, the steering wheel buttons also provide control for the digital music server and, if also equipped with the rear seat entertainment system, front and rear DVD video. An available hands-free Bluetooth cell-phone interface system with voice recognition allows hands-free calling from compatible phones, which can help reduce the distraction of the driver. With voice recognition, the user can speak a phone number to dial it, or speak the name of a person in the stored phone book.
