A side-by-side comparison of the 2018 Mitsubishi Outlander vs. 2018 Ford Edge

2018 Mitsubishi Outlander vs. 2018 Ford Edge

The latest version of the Mitsubishi Outlander, available at the Spitzer Mitsubishi showroom, picks up several important new features while keeping one of the most competitive starting prices in this segment of the crossover SUV class. To show just how strong the new model is, the sales staff at the dealership have compiled some information comparing the 2018 Mitsubishi Outlander vs. 2018 Ford Edge. For the new model year, the 2018 Outlander has picked up a more user-friendly infotainment system that is also compatible with today's most popular smartphone platforms. Additionally, the 2018 Mitsubishi has also picked up a new mid-grade trim, called Limited Edition. 

When a Spitzer Mitsubishi customer is considering a new crossover SUV, there is at least one major difference between the 2018 Outlander and 2018 Edge they will notice immediately – passenger space. The new Mitsubishi Outlander is a nimble and efficient crossover SUV option that offers three rows of seats which can safely seat up to seven passengers. By comparison, the new Ford Edge has stayed with its two-row, five-passenger configuration. The cargo space inside of the 2018 Outlander is also very impressive. Ford fans may point out that the Edge has more available cargo space, but the Outlander is only a few cubic-feet shy of what the Ford SUV offers — while still seating more passengers.

Upgrades and highlights for the 2018 Outlander

Having an infotainment system that is smartphone-compatible is no longer just a novel luxury item, it is now a requirement in today's automotive marketplace. The 2018 Mitsubishi Outlander largely equals, if not improves on, the system available in the 2018 Ford Edge. Spitzer Mitsubishi customers choosing SE and higher versions of the 2018 Outlander will be able to pair their Apple- or Android-based smartphones with the Mitsubishi infotainment system. Additionally, when properly equipped with the vehicle's available 3.0-liter, V-6 engine, the 2018 Mitsubishi Outlander has a peak towing capacity of 3,500 pounds, which is the top limit for the 2018 Ford Edge as well.

What can I do with smartphone apps in my Mitsubishi?

Mitsubishi is onboard with the latest trend in automotive technology, smartphone-compatible infotainment systems. The days of just simply having the choice of AM or FM radio are long gone. Mitsubishi vehicles equipped with the ability to be paired with Android Auto or Apple CarPlay essentially are transformed into rolling search engines with the entirety of the internet available. Because Spitzer Mitsubishi believes in the idea that people should be able to get the most of the vehicles they take home from our showroom, we have put together this little introduction of what people can do with smartphone apps in a Mitsubishi car or crossover SUV.
