Powered by an updated MIVEC-equipped V6 engine, the Mitsubishi Outlander GT offers greater power without sacrificing fuel economy. By improving the intake efficiency and raising the compression ratio, Mitsubishi engineers have managed to push output to 230 hp @ 6,250 RPM and 215 lb.-ft. of peak torque at 3,750 RPM. The increased engine efficiency has also allowed the Mitsubishi Outlander GT to reduce its carbon footprint and CO2 emissions.

Complementing the refined power is the advanced driver control provided by Hill Start Assist and S-AWC. The S-AWC system utilizes a first-in-class Active Front Differential (AFD) and an electronically controlled center differential system, which distributes driving force intelligently from front to rear and left to right to the front wheels. The driver is able to use a "Tarmac, Snow, or Lock" selector knob to switch between modes, providing full-time traction during any weather situation.

The sportronic® automatic transmission's six gears are also manually selectable with steering column mounted magnesium alloy paddle shifters. The transmission in the Mitsubishi Outlander GT also provides increased fuel economy with the addition of Idle Neutral Logic (INL). By automatically selecting neutral whenever the Outlander GT comes to a stop, fuel consumption is reduced.

The Mitsubishi Outlander GT now wears a distinctive jet fighter front grille, which evokes the sporty history of Mitsubishi's family line-up. Backing up those looks is the addition of an all-new Lancer Evolution-inspired lightweight aluminum roof, which helps lower the center of gravity. The blacked out front bumper cover design is also similar to what is found on the Lancer Evolution model. Accenting the new face are the redesigned side sills, rear bumper, mirrors and 18-inch alloy wheels. A unique flap fold tailgate design allows easy access to the rear storage area for loading and unloading. Bi-xenon HID headlamps with daytime running lights are also now standard.

Inside, the Mitsubishi Outlander GT displays a premium feel with a change to stitched synthetic leather on the dashboard and upper front and rear door trims. Chrome accents also surround the air outlet knobs and automatic climate control dials. A new high contrast multi-color LCD instrument display is on board to enhance both visibility and the sporty feel of the Mitsubishi Outlander GT.

Standard user technology includes the FUSE Hands-free Link System™, a Bluetooth® 2.0 enabled system with advanced voice recognition for hands-free calling and wireless streaming of audio. USB connectivity has been incorporated into the FUSE system, allowing voice-command of music by Artist, Genre, Playlist, or Album through iPod® devices or USB-enabled thumb drives. A 710-Watt (max.), Rockford-Fosgate® Premium Audio system with SIRIUS® Satellite Radio and an ultrasonic wave sensor equipped security system are also standard on the Mitsubishi Outlander GT. A 40GB HDD navigation system with rear view camera is also available, which for 2010 now includes Real-Time Traffic (RDS) service with no monthly fees.

Standard safety features in all Outlander models include Active Stability Control (ASC), an advanced dual-stage front air bag supplemental restraint system (SRS) with occupant sensors, standard front seat-mounted side-impact air bags and side curtain air bags with roll-over sensors for the front and second-row seats.

The Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution’s exhaust system has been tuned for an even more sporty-sounding exhaust note. All Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution GSR models now include a large rear spoiler with the MR version receiving a stylish low-key rear lip spoiler.

A highly rigid structure, strong but lightweight components and a superbly-tuned independent suspension system make up the foundation of every Lancer Evolution. The Evo’s platform features ample use of ultra-strong yet lightweight high-tensile steel along with a hood, greenhouse and front fenders composed entirely of lightweight aluminum. Mitsubishi engineers cleverly placed the car’s battery and windshield washer fluid reservoir in the trunk to help improve overall vehicle weight distribution.

The 2011 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution features numerous innovative safety technologies to help protect all of the vehicle’s occupants. Every Evolution is endowed with Mitsubishi’s next-generation Reinforced Impact Safety Evolution (RISE) unibody platform that, in the event of side or rear collisions, helps to dissipate energy away from the vehicle’s occupants to improve protection from injury; the RISE system also helps to protect the fuel system from rear impacts. Seven air bags are also included: Advanced dual front air bag supplemental restraint system (SRS) with occupant sensors, front seat-mounted side-impact air bags, side curtain air bags and a driver’s side knee air bag. A Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) and anti-lock braking system (advanced Sport ABS included on the Lancer Evolution) with Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD) are also included.

2013 Subaru BRZ Sports Coupe

2013 Subaru BRZ Sports Coupe

Subaru has recently unveiled one of the company's newest vehicle models that will be sold in the US automobile market this year and this is the 2013 Subaru BRZ Sports Coupe. The BRZ made its first appearance in the USA at the 2012 North American International Auto Show held in Detroit last January. Upon seeing the 2013 Subaru BRZ, a lot of car buyers, vehicle experts, and other car enthusiasts were impressed with the sports coupe's appearance. In addition to this, they were also amazed by some of the vehicle's significant features.

The 2013 Subaru BRZ Sports Coupe has lower vehicle weight, very precise steering, and low center of gravity just like most sports car models in the market. This is powered by an FA-series 2.0-liter Boxer engine mated to either a 6-speed manual or 6-speed automatic transmission. The Boxer engine is capable of producing up to 200 horsepower and the power produced by the engine is passed into the vehicle's rear wheels. The power output produced by the sport car's engine is considered to be common in its segment but Subaru expects that the overall performance of the BRZ will be able to stand out against its closest competitors in the segment.

The FA-series Boxer engine used in the BRZ is exclusively used by the model alone and this is not shared with any other Subaru vehicle. In addition to this, the materials used in the producing the engine is lightweight and these are capable of reducing the amount of friction produced when the vehicle is running. Due to this the BRZ is expected to offer an impressive running performance without the need to consume larger amounts of fuel.

Aside from the characteristics enumerated earlier, a lot of car experts have also noted that the 2013 Subaru BRZ sports coupe has frameless doors. But despite of the absence of the frames, the vehicle's doors are obviously strong and this could be considered as a boost in its safety features. Thanks to the company's use of the so-called "ring structure." In addition to this, the doors are made of high-tensile-strength steel that further improve the doors' sturdiness and resilience in the event of side crashes or collisions.

Given all of these features, it is very much possible for the 2013 Subaru BRZ sports coupe to emerge as one of the most sought-about sports car models for this year. This possible outcome could be considered as a very important event for the company since most of the sport car models in the market are also subjected to upgrades to further enhance their own performance.

2013 Mercedes Benz SL550

2013 Mercedes Benz SL550

Get ready to short Pfizer stocks, because the brand new 2013 Mercedes Benz SL550 will be putting Viagra out of business. The 2013 Mercedes Benz SL550 continues a tradition that was started 60 years ago. A tradition that is synonymous with sport, style, and comfort. The 2013 SL550 is no different, although Mercedes is touting a slightly different tune about the all new and improved SL: it's lightweight, athletic and luxurious.

Lightweight, an aspect that is very critical to a performance vehicle. This is something that Mercedes Benz did not discount with the 2013 SL. Being built almost entirely out of aluminum the new SL is significantly lighter than it's predecessor, while at the same time features enhanced rigidity, body-roll and agility. The new body shell weights around 242 pounds less then it's steel counterpart. The change from steel to aluminum shell has also allowed Mercedes to focus on enhancing other aspects of the car structure such as optimizing safety points and adding additional rigidity to reduce vibration and thus, increase comfort. In all, the new 2013 Mercedes Benz SL550 weighs 275 pounds less than it's predecessor, bringing in the final weight to approximately 3,925 pounds (1780kg) from 4,200 pounds (1,905kg). Still a fairly high weight for a roadster, especially considering that a 2012 BMW 750i, a very large V8 luxury sedan, weighs 4,564 lbs (2,070kg). However, BMW'sV8 Twin Turbo roadster, the 2012 BMW 650i weighs in at 4531 lbs (2,055kg), significantly more than the 2013 SL550. Don't worry though, we'll point out the fact that the high weight doesn't necessarily limit the 2013 SL550 from achieving it's two other important qualities of being athletic and luxurious.

Athletic: if anyone knows anything about Mercedes Benz and SLs, they know that they're most definitely athletic. From 700 torque producing biturbos to raw naturally aspirated V8s, the SL is always on the forefront with power, handling and athletic capabilities. The 2013 SL550 is not any different, featuring a 4.7 liter V8 that spews out 429 horsepower and 516 lb-ft of torque. "That's great" you say, "but my Mustang can do the same thing," in which you fail to recognize that the power increase from the outgoing 2012 SL500 improved by 12% despite a 0.8 liter drop in displacement. Torque on the other hand, improved by 32% up from a puny 391 lb-ft. Combine the weight drop with a smaller, more efficient engine, then take some other fancy components like steering enhancements and suspension tweaks and you get a fat roadster with enough torque to open your pickle jar that can do 0 to 60 mph in 4.5 seconds. That's AMG territory!

Let's not forget that despite being lightweight and athletic that the Mercedes Benz SL550 is still a vehicle of luxury. While the rev limiter is ringing in your ears you'll be able to appreciate the longer, wider and taller dimensions of the new SL. While the exhaust note will wake your neighbors, you'll be appreciating the FrontBass system that is integrated into the body of the car, making for a concert hall experience even with the top down. While your friends gloat about their Prius' gas mileage you'll be laughing for 20 seconds as your retractable hardtop drops down for you to enjoy the open air driving experience.

But let's not forget the most important piece about driving a Mercedes Benz: how you look in it. The car is clearly one of the most cleverly designed roadsters ever. The 2013 SL550 retains the classic,
