2012-2016 Mitsubishi Outlander K&N Air Filter 33-3015

On top of Mitsubishi's weight and aero improvements, drivers found they could help their Outlander’s performance a little more by installing the K&N 33-3015 Replacement Air Filter

A major component of a vehicle owner's bottom line is performance efficiency, and a K&N Replacement Air Filter can be a significant influence on how that pencils out. When the third-generation Mitsubishi Outlander was introduced to the American market in late 2012 and went on sale in early 2013, it featured a redesign that trimmed nearly 200 lbs. of weight, mostly from the chassis, and a body shape with a lower coefficient of drag.

The manufacturer did claim a boost in performance specs, and the design and construction improvements generated excitement for drivers, but when this 7-seater is hauling the soccer team to the tournament, or the family and all their weekend gear to the mountains, it needs a little help. And the two powertrains for the 4-cylinder engine in the ES and SE models, both fitted with a continuously variable transmission, make acceleration to highway speeds a bit of a chore. Only in the GT model can you get a conventional 6-speed automatic.

The good news is that drivers found they could help improve their Outlander models a little more by installing the K&N 33-3015 Replacement Air Filter. Comments from around the globe that have contributed to a 4.9-star rating for the 33-3015 Air Filter that ranges from "My Outlander Sport is peppier..." to "Installed in my new Mitzi Outlander and noticed quicker response and acceleration." So, the bottom line is: while K&N does not make any specific hp or mpg claims, we simply encourage you to try our air filter products for yourself and you can be the judge.
