Outlander Transmission is a 'fake CVT'
Both my service manager, and a Mitsubishi Representative at the N Y Auto Show have confirmed that the tranny is a CVT with 6 fixed computer shift points so it acts like a standard auto box. Mitsubishi is marketing the 'memory feature' of the driving profile to determine the shifting atrabutes vs. the actual fact that it is a CVT. The unique moving-off from a standstill sensation, and the higher m-p-g than one might expect are a direct result/benefit of employing the CVT. Mitsubishi uses their own 'enhanced CVT' software vs. other car mfg's CVT boxes.
