In short: A value-oriented midsize SUV.


L
oads of cargo space and a pleasant driving experience make this modern SUV a great family vehicle. However, should you be in the mood for a little big kid fun, the Outlander's electronically-conrtrolled 4WD system and 220-horsepower V6 engine are just the tools you need when you feel like getting down and dirty.
