What’s the best year for a used Mitsubishi Outlander?

I’m in the market for a midsize SUV and really like the look of the Mitsubishi Outlander. I can’t afford a brand new vehicle right now—what’s the best year for a used Mitsubishi Outlander?

Mitsubishi Outlander
comes with a wide range of standard features, making it an excellent choice for drivers on a budget! Overall, the best version of this midsize crossover is the 2020 model—which was ranked as the lowest cost-to-own among all three-row SUVs for that year by Kelley Blue Book.
Here are some of the 2020 Outlander’s standout features:
  • 8-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto
  • USB charging in both the front and rear seats
  • Automatic, dual-zone climate control
  • Forward-collision warning
  • Automatic emergency braking
  • Lane departure warning
  • Keyless entry
  • Automatic headlights
Upper trims also include luxury amenities such as heated seats, a power liftgate, a sunroof, and a premium stereo system. And if you’re looking for more power, the fully-loaded
Outlander GT
exchanges the standard four-cylinder engine for a potent 224-horsepower V6!
You can usually find a 2020 Mitsubishi Outlander on the used car market for somewhere between 18,000 and $20,000—that’s about $10,000 cheaper than a brand new 2023 model! However, if you need to bring costs down even further, check out Outlanders from the 2012 and 2013 model year. These vehicles generally cost less than $10,000 in 2023, while offering reasonably modern tech, high reliability scores, and good fuel economy.
