While Ford may be one of the most popular brands in the United States, we think it is worth your time to take a good look at Mitsubishi. We will compare the two brands side by side to show you how Mitsubishi stands out from the crowd.
One of the benefits of buying a new car is its warranty coverage. This means you usually don’t have to worry about any expensive service bills for years to come. While many Ford models come with a 5-year/60,000-mile Limited Powertrain Warranty, they cannot compete with Mitsubishi’s warranty, which is 10 years or 100,000 miles on most vehicles.
If fuel efficiency is a top priority for you, then you have a lot of fuel-efficient vehicles to choose from. However, Mitsubishi offers the most fuel-efficient non-hybrid vehicles in the country: the subcompact Mitsubishi Mirage hatchback. It gets an EPA-estimated 43 mpg on the highway.* On the other hand, Ford’s subcompact Fiesta only offers an estimated 35 mpg highway.*
Mitsubishi is also one of the only automotive brands to sell a plug-in hybrid crossover—the Outlander PHEV. The 2018 model offers an estimated 22 miles of electric driving range. While Ford sells crossovers, none of them are plug-in hybrids.
You don’t want to pay more than you have to for the features you need. If you choose Mitsubishi, you know you will get a great deal as it has one of the most affordable lineups in the industry. And, just because Mitsubishi vehicles don’t cost as much, that doesn’t mean they don’t have modern features. Most Mitsubishi models come very well-equipped with features like Bluetooth®, 7-inch touch screens, a rearview camera, and more.
Comparable Ford models will cost you more and you probably won’t get as many desirable features, especially if you choose the base trim level.
So, if you want an automaker to stand behind their vehicles, offer top fuel efficiency, and deliver the best value, you will definitely want to look into Mitsubishi. Here at Don Robinson Mitsubishi, we would happy to show you around the lineup.
