2017 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV Gets Upgraded Tech Package

As the best-selling plug-in hybrid in the UK, drivers in the United States are starting to get excited about the 2017 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV. Although already best-selling in the UK, Mitsubishi has been constantly working on improving the vehicle before its American launch.

The recent technology updates apply specifically to the top-of-the-line Juro trim. The main addition to this trim is a variety of safety features. Drivers will now have access to a rearview camera that allows them to see everything that’s behind them. Also, there will now be an electronic parking brake with an automatic brake hold. This addition allows drivers to release the pedal in traffic or while stationary on a hill.

In addition, the new Outlander PHEV will now feature a Smartphone Link Display Audio System. This new technology allows drivers to control their infotainment system without ever taking their eyes off of the road. All that you need to do is tell your system what you want to access and the technology takes care of the rest.

Spend Your Tax Refund at Randall Mitsubishi on a New Car

tax refund at Randall Mitsubishi

Most Americans that file their taxes will receive some sort of refund. For some Americans, this refund will be thousands of dollars. If you’re getting a sizable return this year, you can spend your tax refund at Randall Mitsubishi. This is a great, easy way to get a down payment in a lump sum.

Industry experts recommend a down payment for a new car to be at least 10%. If your tax refund is $2,000 or more, you could easily have more than you need. With a larger down payment, you won’t need to finance as much of your car purchase. This means your monthly payments will be lower and you could potentially get a lower interest rate.

If you don’t want to buy a brand new car, you could also use your refund towards a great used car. Here at Randall Mitsubishi, we have a great inventory of affordable, quality pre-owned cars.

A third option for using your refund could be doing some serious maintenance or upgrades on your current car. If you’ve been putting off expensive repairs, use your refund to get your car in tip-top shape. Get a new set of tires, get your car detailed, get a major tune-up, or whatever it is you need to rekindle your love for your car. Schedule a service appointment at Randall Mitsubishi today.

All-new Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross Unveiled in Geneva

From 1990 through 2012, the Mitsubishi Eclipse was a beloved sports coupe and convertible that helped build-up the Mitsubishi name for performance. That model may be gone, but its name is making a comeback. The 2018 Eclipse Cross, unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show in Switzerland, is not a sporty coupe, but a compact crossover.

2018 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross, unveiled

Size-wise, this new model will fit between the current Outlander and Outlander Sport. It shares the same platform as the other two and will be 173.4 inches long. Mitsubishi says that the next updates for the other two models will make them larger and smaller, respectively.

The Eclipse Cross comes with sophisticated styling inside and out. It will be powered by a new turbocharged 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine. Power ratings haven’t been released yet; however, Mitsubishi says it will be more powerful than the current Outlander, which makes 166 horsepower with its 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine.

Inside, passengers will find modern features, including a sophisticated touchscreen system. Available technology includes a head-up display, Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto.

The 2018 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross will be coming to Randall Mitsubishi in early 2018. We’re excited to see this all-new addition sitting on our showroom floor and can’t wait to see how it performs on the road.

Safety First 2017 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport Features Keep You in Control

2017 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport Features

There is simply no other SUV on the road like the powerful, fuel-efficient, and spacious new Mitsubishi Outlander Sport. A rearview camera, Active Stability Control System, and one of the industry’s best warranties are just a few of the many features on the 2017 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport that elevate it above its competitors.

 

Rearview Camera

Once you drive with a rearview camera, you will wonder how you ever survived without it. This camera activates as soon as you shift into reverse, making it safe and easy to back down driveways, pull out of a parking spot, and much more.

 

Active Stability Control

The Active Stability Control system utilizes sensors to decrease your likelihood of slipping or losing contact with the road in any way; it monitors the grip of each tire and if one of your wheels begins to slip, the system enacts the Anti-lock Braking System.

 

Excellent Warranty

Finally, in the unlikely event that something goes wrong and the vehicle fails in almost anyway, you will be covered by a top-notch warranty that has your back for either 10 years or 10,000 miles, whichever comes first.

 

If you would like to learn more about any of these features, or perhaps even check out the 2017 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport in person, stop by and visit us any time, at Randall Mitsubishi.

Valentine’s Day Driving Tips to Remember on Every Date

Valentine’s Day Driving Tips

This Valentine’s Day and on all date nights to come – though driving safety may be the last thing on your mind – we urge you to think otherwise. The influence of your favorite music, alcohol, and even an intoxicating date can quickly make a casual drive dangerous.

 

Not sure where to begin? Check out these Valentine’s Day driving tips, which are relevant year-round.

 

  • Let your date, or whoever is in the passenger’s seat, choose the music that’s playing, so you can keep your hands on the wheel.
  • Though you may be tempted to wear your most fancy shoes for a big date, be sure to have something comfortable to wear behind the wheel.
  • Don’t pick up your cell phone. Not only is it dangerous, but also, your date may appreciate it if you avoid your phone for most of the evening.
  • Perhaps stick with safe foods if you are going out to eat. You don’t want to find yourself in desperate need of the bathroom while you’re driving your date around.
  • And lastly – never, ever drive under the influence of alcohol or drugs. Your vehicle, your life, and potentially the lives of others, are never worth it.

 

For more driving safety tips, or to pick out a brand new car to whisk away your date, visit us any time at Randall Mitsubishi.

The last Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution Final Edition has finally been sold, which means the legendary sports car is no longer on the market. Fortunately, if you didn’t have the chance to grab one while they were still available, you might be able to get an older model instead. A 1995 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution II RS is currently on the market.

 

The classic 1995 sports car boasts just 46,600 miles on the odometer and has one owner in its 21-year-long history. The owner kept track of the car’s service history in a log book, along with the mileage.

 

The Lancer Evo II RS, a modified version of the standard Evo II, brings a performance-driven engine tuned to pump out 256 hp, wider tires, 16-inch rims, an aerodynamic design, and 30% stiffer chassis, among other changes.

 

The seller, a dealership in Hong Kong, is asking for approximately $19,000 for the classic car. Don’t fret about the location though. The 1995 Lancer Evo II RS comes with an export certificate as well.

If you’ve ever wanted to own a classic car and have a fair amount of money lying around, this is your chance!

 

We here at Randall Mitsubishi wish we could our behind the wheel of this classic sports car!

New Year Resolutions for Drivers

Driving at sunset

Take to the road with a new set of resolutions to kick off 2017. Finding the perfect New Year’s resolution can be a struggle for many drivers. As it turns out, the right resolution could be behind the wheel of your vehicle.

 

  • Tires – There’s little doubt the tires are one of the most important parts of your vehicle, which is why maintaining them is pertinent to many. Tires that aren’t properly cared for will create decreased fuel economy, a rougher ride, and wear faster. Take a few minutes each week to make sure there’s enough tread and that the tires are properly inflated this year.

 

  • Idling –One good way to waste money is by idling in the driveway. Winter is cold, which causes many drivers to let their car idle in order to warm up. The popularity of remote starters certainly doesn’t help matters either. In reality, the fastest way to warm up your vehicle is to drive. Most engines are ready to roll after just one minute of being turned on.

 

  • Maintenance – Keeping up with routine maintenance should be high on most to-do lists. Keep your car operating at peak performance by making service appointments and consulting your owner’s manual.

 

We here at Randall Mitsubishi hope you try one of these New Year resolutions for drivers in 2017!
