Can a Mitsubishi Outlander Sport Tow?




The 2020 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport is a great car for driving around in Neptune, New Jersey. Whether you have a large family that you want to travel with, or whether you want to go on a road trip during the summer - the Mitsubishi Outlander Sport is the perfect car for all your driving needs. 

However, can the 2020 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport help you tow your trailer? While the car has every feature you need for a powerful ride across New Jersey roads, if you want to tow a trailer using this car, there are a few things you need to keep in mind. The Mitsubishi Outlander Sport has a decent towing capacity, but if you need to tow large weights, then upgrading your car to the Outlander GT 3.0 version will give you a maximum towing capacity of 3500 lbs. 

What is the towing capacity of the Mitsubishi Outlander Sport?

If you are looking for a car that can provide adequate towing capacity for your day to day requirements, then the 2020 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport is the perfect car for you! The base-level trim of this model has a towing capacity of around 1500 lbs. 

The car also comes with some very useful tools if you are thinking of using it to tow your trailer. It has: 

A tow hitch and a tow wire harness that are company manufactured and that make towing trailers a comfort instead of a hassle. This feature enables you to use the taillights, turning signals, and brake lights of your trailer in tandem with your car. Most trailers use a standard connecter, which you are provided with when you purchase the Outlander Sport. However, if you find that a trailer has a different connecter, then you can buy a separate adapter for that trailer as well. 

Cars that enable trailer towing also need to consider the trailer tongue weight. This is a number that is measured to find the ideal ratio between the car and the trailer that prevents the trailer from swaying. All the Outlander Sport models from Mitsubishi have a standard trailer tongue weight of 150 lbs. If you upgrade your car to the Outlander GT 3.0 model, this weight becomes 350 lbs. 

The standard trim and the upgraded GT 3.0 trim make room for different towing capacities, depending on what you need to tow. So, if you need greater towing capacity, then the Mitsubishi Outlander Sport GT 3.0 may be just the upgrade you need. Not only does the upgrade increase your maximum towing capacity from 1500 to 3500 lbs, but it also improves your horsepower from 166 to 224 HP, and it increases your car's torque from 162 lb. ft. to 215 lb. ft.
