    We just changed the discussion name to "2009 Mitsubishi Outlander" so Mitsu searches will pick it up easier.

    Now we're all confused, so let's just move on shall we?

    Thanks for your single liner. You might want to read the old posts too before you make your intelligent single liner comment. The discussion is not about the Lancer, but you didn't seem to pick that up. Wanna join the fun? You're on. Lets see what you have to say about diesel engines from Mitsubishi then since you seem to have figured it out.Maybe you can enlighten us by your wisdom.

    You know steve, this isn't about the 2009 Outlander. Look at the first few posts. That's not even the 2009 Outlander. Somebody was confused and thought it was an 09 Outlander but its actually NOT. FYI.

    Well, we already have a 2008 Mitsubishi Outlander discussion.

    We could retire this one and start over when the next model year rolls around....

    The fact is that in Japan is being announced the debut of a 2009 Outlander. The fact that this 2009 Outlander may have minor addition doesn’t invalidate that it is a new model to be sold after October 2008 (as a 2009 model) in the USA. Few differences exist between the 2007 and 2008 Outlander but does not invalidate that the 2008 Outlander is a new version of the 2007 Outlander and it cannot be established that the 2007 model is equal than model 2008. Model 2008 Outlander has standard 115V outlet, new style of the third row of seats, 7-spoke wheels instead of 5-spoke wheels (only in the 2007 model), heated door mirrors for AWD 2008 models and so on.

    Perhaps the 2009 model has more user-friendly mechanism to collapse the third row of seats, or the second row collapsing flat into the car floor, who knows. But because a member passionately defends that there is not a 2009 model (already announced in Japan) and immediately encouraged the moderator to delete the photos of the 2009 Outlander model in this column because this member said that the photos are model 2007 and period. I find this action scaring in addition that the moderator is taken side without explaining why this is done.

    We're North American centric in the forum, and if there's no '09 for sale and we don't know what the specs are, we're really into Future Vehicles territory. Unless there really are significant changes from one model year to another, breaking down the general model discussions year by year scatters the threads. Lots of questions and solutions apply to several model years.

    But that's why I asked....

    Where is the link to that "announcement"? Once and for all, post a link where a 2009 Outlander was announced. As I've said, the pictures you have posted is THE SAME vehicle announced and debuted in Japan as a 2007 Outlander V6 way back in October 2007. In fact It has been the same pictures posted there since that time. Now if you have links that will show that a 2009 Outlander is already announced, be it Japan or elsewhere in the world, you are free to post it here.

    But because a member passionately defends that there is not a 2009 model (already announced in Japan) and immediately encouraged the moderator to delete the photos of the 2009 Outlander model in this column because this member said that the photos are model 2007 and period

    Nothing but lies. :surprise: Show me a quote where "somebody" asked the moderator to delete the photos. :confuse:

    And here is further proof that the vehicle you posted is a 2007 V6 Outlander announced and marketed in Japan since October 2007: and also here: pan-t89.html
    Look at the dates of posting in those threads.

    Now your turn... let's see some links.

    Mate: I have difficulties in attaching pictures in here so I cannot reply to your question.

    Just to make 2 points:

    One, “encourage” is not the same as “ask”. Second, please see again the picture copied from Mitsubishi web page (deleted). I have circled some aspect of the picture for you to analyze and make an intelligent inference. The Oxford dictionary defines the word “DEBUT” as the first public appearance of something. To reinforce this fact in the top right side is scribbled the term 2009 and in the left bottom is the word “What is new”.

    Usually a "new model" is one in which the chassis/body/styling are significantly changed. In this case it's just a few minor changes that have already been available in other markets.
  • rcpaxrcpax Posts: 580
    First off, I don't think anybody can "encourage" any moderator here. And I tell you, definitely NOT me :)

    And again, just because you saw "2009", it doesn't mean it's the 2009 Outlander. Here is a screencap of the link if you click the "2009" in your picture:


    Now, it doesn't say anything about a 2009 Outlander, does it? It's the link to the 2009 Recruiting Information page! :D

    Available exclusively for the Japanese market, the Outlander “Roadest” is a special edition version of Mitsubishi’s SUV that stands out from the standard model thanks to a new full bodykit that includes a new front grille and chromed mirror caps along with a set of 7-spoke 18-inch alloy wheels. Inside the “Roadest” is equipped with dark colored sport cloth seats and decorative aluminum trim. Buyers can choose between three different body colors, white, black and grey. The Outlander “Roadest” is available for sale in Japan =Motors&check=1&z=1@1214198701906569

    * Rain Sensor (wipers)
    * New type of Screen for the Nav unit that helps the glare issue
    * Chrome trim for front grill
    * Chrome trim look for the interior cabin

    Pricing and ordering will be availble next week. If I get more information I will post it here.
  • chelentanochelentano Posts: 634
    Backup camera is already available as dealer installed option. Are you saying it will be part of the package?
  • xcellxcell Posts: 14
    Yes, it will an option like the Sun And Sound, Luxury Package, etc. I have not heard the name of the package with the rear camera, but it will inclube other items as well.

    I think the details (pricing, optional packages) will be out this week 7/14.
  • chelentanochelentano Posts: 634
    it will probably be part of Navi package
  • Just to add to xcells post, the LS trim will be discontinued for 2009, there will be ES, SE, and XLS (XLS will be the only trim with a 6 cylinder engine, rest will use the 2.4l). Backup camera will be added to navigation system package. Also, ES/SE will be available in 5 or 7 seat configurations (basically all trims will be available with 3 rows). Supposed ship date is late September. Also, to those of you looking for Mitsubishi incentives and rebates, don't count on it especially on Japanese made models. Mitsubishi just discontinued the Graduation Rebate ($500) and it's plan is to cut back on all the other incentives as they basically are trying to get the resale value of Mitsubishi to go up (leasing purposes).
