The Mitsubishi Outlander vs The Nissan Rogue. 

Gunther Mitsubishi knows that you have choices. Part of buying a new car is doing all of the homework, again and again. We realize that you might get into a new vehicle once every 3-10 years and that it's an infrequent occurrence for you… but we do this every day. We see customers just like you, come through our doors, looking to find their families' new best friend. When it comes to the Mitsubishi Outlander, we know what you might be comparing it to and that's why we've put together this handy shoot-out to illustrate why we love the Mitsubishi Outlander over the Nissan Rogue (the Outlander's main competitor), factually lining up what the Outlander has, and what the Rogue does not.

Safety Taken Seriously

The Forward Collision Mitigation with Pedestrian Detection System helps to determine if a frontal collision with a vehicle or pedestrian is likely. If so, it warns the driver with audible and visual alerts and applies braking to help avoid or reduce the severity of a collision.

What The Outlander's Got That The Rogue Does Not

In this section we are going to touch on some key comparisons that most of our Outlander customers have found to be useful data-points in their research (and then discuss the value of some of these key points).

  • The Outlander has a dedicated off-road racing history. The Rogue does not.
  • The Outlander has a 10yr/100K mile powertrain warranty. The Rogue does not.
  • The Outlander has won the KBB 5-Year Cost-To-Own Award. The Rogue has not.
  • The Outlander comes as a 7-seater. The Rogue does not.
  • The Outlander has an available PHEV powertrain. The Rogue does not.
  • The Outlander has an available V6 with a 3500lb tow capacity. The Rogue does not.
  • The Outlander has an 8" infotainment screen. The Rogue does not.

The Value Of Off Road Racing

While most of us may never do battle with our Outlander's on the desolate Baja peninsula, compete in rally championships, or claim victory over the punishing Paris-to-Dakar rally (as the Outlander has heroically done twelve times), we can still drive a vehicle that has benefited from relentless race-level testing. The result? A vehicle that can be relied on for many years to serve your family, in a variety of harsh conditions. Mitsubishi steps up and backs their product with a class-leading 10yr/100K mile warranty.


Powertrain Versatility

The availability of multiple powertrains allows the vehicle to be tailored to many types of needs and drivers. Typically, when you see only one available powertrain in this class, it's designed to be a one-size-fits-all approach to motoring. Is your life one-size-fits-all? Didn't think so. Therefore, you have the ability to assemble this family vehicle with your needs and lifestyle in mind. We know that if you're living here in Coconut Creek and even beyond, you live a life that demands versatility. You should be able to find that in an SUV. The Outlander gives you that flexibility.


Saving You Money Over Time

This is a really valuable metric to use when considering a vehicle to purchase and we are constantly surprised by how many people are still discovering it. KBB, a household resource when it comes to vehicle values, offers an annual award to vehicles that boast the lowest cost of ownership. The Rogue isn't even on this list.


How does KBB calculate this value? They take the aggregate of your projected expenses over 5-years (based on national averages) with regard to insurance, repairs, scheduled maintenance, financing, fuel, state fees, and value retention. Only the vehicles with the lowest final numbers make the cut for this achievement.

Perhaps we see the echo of racing's benefit here. The Outlander is a quality product, torture-tested and proven durable, thus dropping repair and maintenance costs, which boost longevity, and greater resale value.

Which Outlander Will You Take Home?

You have 6 models to choose from, including a special edition (the SP) and an additional PHEV variant. Select FWD, or AWD. Pick your favorite powertrain. Oh yeah, and your favorite color and you can literally be off to the races. Or at least the grocery store. In proven quality.
