On top of their standard engines, the 2018 Mitsubishi Outlander and the 2018 Kia Sorento offer engine upgrades as you climb the ladder of trim levels. The 2018 Kia Sorento offers a 2.0L I-4 engine with Turbocharger as well as a 3.3L V6 to increase horsepower and torque, while also decreasing its fuel efficiency. The 2018 Mitsubishi Outlander has an available 3.0L V6 which also increases its power while only taking a slight hit to its fuel economy. Every trim level of the 2018 Mitsubishi Outlander also makes available All-Wheel Drive (AWD) and it comes standard with the 2018 Outlander GT 3.0 trim.
