Whether driving in snow gives you heart palpitations or you get nervous behind the wheel when the rain is beating down, then chances are only the safest vehicles on the road make your “Potential New Car” List.

No matter the weather, the Mitsubishi-exclusive feature called S-AWC (Super All Wheel Control) keeps your vehicle balanced, stable, and grounded at all times for increased safety. When you have a Mitsubishi vehicle with S-AWC, like an Outlander, Outlander Sport, or Lancer Evo, your vehicle provides enhanced traction rain or shine, sleet or snow; it doesn’t quit!

In addition to Mitsubishi’s S-AWC, when you drive an Outlander, you will be behind the wheel of one of the only vehicles in its segment with Active Front Differential, which is a new performance technology that splits the torque to enhance your vehicle’s effectiveness and efficiency even more. In fact, did you know that Mitsubishi’s Outlander and Outlander Sport line of SUVs was the “Most Awarded Family of AWD Vehicles to date?”

Mitsubishi’s Fast Key Entry System: What It Is and How It Works

Mitsubishi Motors designs cars with the drivers of North Huntingdon and Pittsburgh in mind. Case and point: their Fast Key Entry System. Sounds great, but the heck is it? This ultra-convenient system lets you unlock your car, start the engine, and drive away without having to fumble in your pocket or purse for your keys. And when paired with available push-to-start technology, the convenience is unimaginably doubled. But how does it work? Inquiring minds want to know!

To start, “Fast” as in “Fast Key” actually stands for Free-Hand-Advanced Security Transmitter, which pretty much covers the basics. When a transmitter (your key) comes within a certain distance of a receiver (built into your vehicle), then the locks disengage. Further, when paired with push-to-start technology, a person can simply push the start button without inserting a key into the ignition. But don’t fret if your Mitsubishi isn’t equipped with push-to-start technology. The Mitsubishi Fast Key Entry System will still allow you to press the ignition knob on the steering column to release the lock, and then twist it to start the engine. Much easier than trying to find your key in your purse or pocket; all you have to do is drive!

So the next time you’re admiring the blue skies on your way into work, and then running through the parking lot to your car in a rainstorm after work, just think: You should really get a Mitsubishi.

Top 10 Reasons We’re Thankful for the 2015 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport

It’s November, which means it’s almost Thanksgiving! In the spirit of the season, here are the top 10 reasons we’re thankful for the 2015 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport.

1.) The 2015 Outlander Sport gets an impressive 25/32 miles per gallon, which is exponentially better than other gas-guzzling SUVs on the market.
2.) It’s always safety first when it comes to this vehicle, especially with the standard Mitsubishi’s FUSE Hands Free Link System, which allows occupants to control audio and smartphone functions using voice commands.
3.) And speaking of safety, the Outlander Sport has one of the top ratings in its class in the small overlap frontal crash test.
4.) Thicker front door glass and more rear body insulation reduce interior noise in the Outlander Sport’s cabin.
5.) A clean, simple dash layout makes it easy to access any control when you’re in the pilot’s seat.

6.) Standard features include steering-wheel audio controls, remote keyless entry, alloy wheels, and a 140-watt sound system, making you feel like a king or queen sitting upon your throne.
7.) The Outlander Sport drives with a light, responsive feel—more like a compact sedan than a larger crossover—making it a no-brainer choice for those who want compactness and maneuverability, not all-out ruggedness.
8.) A nice, low cargo floor and easy-folding rear seatbacks (split 60/40) combine to provide cargo space and versatility that’s very impressive considering the compact exterior.
9.) An elevated seating position in the Outlander Sport offers top-notch outward visibility.
10.) The Mitsubishi Outlander Sport sets itself apart from other models in its class by shying away from sport-utility cues and instead taking a sportier tack—looking (and feeling) more like a tall hatch.

At Jim Shorkey Mitsubishi, we’re so confident that you will be thankful for this vehicle too that we’re offering the 2015 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport ES for $18,997—that’s almost $3,000 off the MSRP! This sale won’t last long, so schedule your test drive today!
