2016 Mitsubishi Outlander SEL vs 2016 Mitsubishi Outlander GT
As always, the 2016 Mitsubishi Outlander is rugged, versatile, and seats 7, making it a great compact crossover for families on the go. As always, it's a lot more off-road capable than most other vehicles in this class, making it especially great for families that are really on the go. Plus, the Mitsubishi Outlander has gotten some significant changes for 2016, including exterior styling tweaks, retuned shocks and springs, a quieter and more comfortable cabin, and an assortment of new features across every trim level.
While the high-end Outlander GT comes with every type of premium feature you can imagine, many of these can also be had as part of a Premium Package for the Outlander SEL. So, what actually sets the Outlander GT apart? Let's take a look at the 2016 Mitsubishi Outlander SEL vs 2016 Mitsubishi Outlander GT.
2016 Mitsubishi Outlander GT Packs More Power
The biggest difference between these two Outlander trims is under the hood. While the 2016 Mitsubishi Outlander SEL shares the 4-cylinder base engine offered in the ES and SE models, the Outlander GT boasts a bigger, more powerful V6 engine. Both have their upsides and downsides. The Outlander SEL's engine is perfectly fine for everyday driving, and more fuel efficient. But if you think you might ever need to tow anything anywhere, for any reason -- a trailer, a boat, your other car, you name it -- the powerhouse Outlander GT is up for the challenge like no other SUV.
The 2016 Outlander SEL comes in both front-wheel and all-wheel drive variants, while the Outlander GT comes standard with all-wheel drive. The GT also comes standard with a Rockford-Fosgate premium audio system, power-folding side-view mirrors, a power sunroof, nifty little windshield wiper de-icer, and a power liftgate, all of which are available through the Premium Package upgrade on the SEL. Exclusive to only the GT, though, are automatic LED headlights, silver roof rails, and an auto-dimming rearview mirror with Homelink universal garage door opener. The GT's exclusive chrome beltline molding sets it apart visually, as well.
