Despite its distinctive exterior, the Outlander lingers at the bottom of the crossover barrel. The interior is quiet, with room for seven in three rows of seats. The base engine is a 166-hp 2.4-liter four mated to a CVT with front-wheel drive; all-wheel drive is optional. The GT has a 224-hp 3.0-liter V-6, a paddle-shifted six-speed automatic, and all-wheel drive. Handling is composed, but both engines are challenged by the Outlander’s weight—especially the four-cylinder with all-wheel drive.
