Mitsubishi Outlander: Trailer towing - Starting and driving - Mitsubishi Outlander Owner's ManualMitsubishi Outlander: Trailer towing

In order to tow a trailer with your vehicle, have a trailer towing device that meets all relevant regulations in your area, mounted at an authorised MITSUBISHI dealer. The regulations concerning the towing of a trailer may differ from country to country. You are advised to obey the regulations in each area.

CAUTION:
● Danger of Accident! A towing bar should be fitted by an authorised MITSUBISHI dealer.

Maximum towable weight with brake and maximum trailer-nose weight

Never exceed the maximum towable weight with brake and the maximum trailer-nose weight as listed in the specifications (refer to page 9-7). If you tow a trailer at an altitude of more than 1,000 m (600 miles) above sea-level, reduce your weight by 10% of the gross combination weight for every increase of 1,000 m (600 miles) above sea-level, as the engine output is lowered owing to decrease in atmospheric pressure.
