Power & Handling

  • 3.6L VVT V6 engine Standard on all models, this engine provides responsive performance and respectable fuel economy. Four valves per cylinder enhance the engine’s breathing for maximum efficiency. Four-cam phasing technology ensures consistent output across the engine’s operating range. A dual-stage variable high output aluminum intake manifold with equal-length runners contributes to the engine’s outstanding balance of flexibility, drivability and peak performance. XE includes a single exhaust outlet, while XR includes dual exhaust outlets.
  • Hydra-Matic 6T75 6-speed automatic transmission Standard transmission on all OUTLOOKs. This compact and efficient transmission also includes an advanced 32-bit control module that monitors performance and compensates for normal wear to ensure consistent operation over the life of the vehicle. Other features of this transmission include: - Clutch-to-clutch operation - Provides smooth shifting and reduced complexity for an 8% improvement in performance and a 4% improvement in fuel economy when compared with previous 4-speed automatics. - Standard Electronic Range Selection (ERS) - Allows drivers to choose the top-gear limit of the vehicle’s transmission and the vehicle’s speed when driving downhill or towing a trailer. - Performance Algorithm Shifting (PAS) - Overrides the automatic gear selection during closed-throttle highlateral acceleration maneuvers and rapidly downshifts for quick power up when the throttle is reopened. - Auto-grade braking - Automatically shifts into a lower gear when braking on a downgrade to help preserve brake life.
  • Noise isolation To help reduce engine NVH, OUTLOOK’s engine includes composite cam covers to help dampen internal engine noise. Isolating perimeter gaskets effectively decouple the cam covers from vibration generated by the engine. Additionally, the engine front cover, camshaft cover and intake manifold cover acoustic deadeners are used to block noise transmission.
  • Flat towable OUTLOOK has flat-towing capability regardless of FWD or AWD drivetrain configuration. This makes OUTLOOK ideal for customers who want to tow OUTLOOK behind their recreational vehicle.
  • Towing When properly equipped, OUTLOOK can tow up to 4,500 lbs. A tow/haul button on the instrument panel optimizes transmission shifting with heavy loads. Additionally, when tow/haul mode is selected, the charging system voltage is increased to assist with the additional electrical load of the trailer.
  • Fuel economy 2008 EPA-estimated fuel economy ratings: - FWD: 16 mpg city/24 mpg highway. - AWD: 16 mpg city/22 mpg highway.
  • MacPherson strut type front suspension Contributes to car-like ride and handling characteristics.
  • H-arm rear suspension Independent design provides excellent ride and handling. Design allows for a low load floor pan design for maximum interior volume and a high load-carrying capacity.
  • All-wheel drive Standard drivetrain layout is front-wheel drive. Available intelligent all-wheel drive system is fully electronic in operation and requires no driver input. The system works by always delivering a slight amount of torque to the rear wheels. The amount of torque delivered is based on vehicle speed, throttle position and the amount (if any) of wheel slip that is occurring. This ensures that torque is always delivered to the wheels that have the best traction. AWD also enhances performance by transferring more torque to the rear wheels in acceleration maneuvers such as when negotiating a freeway on-ramp.
  • Hydraulic-assist power steering Provides accurate control and excellent driver feedback. Variable-effort hydraulic power steering is standard on XR.
  • Brakes Standard 4-wheel disc brakes with ABS provide sure-footed and stable braking capability.
  • StabiliTrak with Roll-Over Mitigation Automatically corrects oversteer and understeer conditions, keeping the vehicle traveling in the desired direction. The system not only helps drivers maintain control of the vehicle, but it can also help reduce the chances of a vehicle rollover. Standard.
  • Traction control Uses brake and engine torque intervention to enhance traction during launch and acceleration on all types of road surfaces. Standard.
  • Wheels and tires Large wheels and tires (the largest standard wheels and tires on a midsize utility) provide a stable, confident look and enhance SUV character. - XE: 18" painted aluminum wheels with P255/65R18 all-season tires. - XR: 18" machined aluminum wheels with P255/65R18 all-season tires.
