2010 Mitsubishi Outlander GT: The Rising Light
December 30, 2010
Mitsubishi prepared for the Outlander GT's eventual owners to be hauling kayaks, people, bikes, perhaps a trophy elk or two. To compensate for rear-loading, Mitsu gave the GT adjustable leveling headlights, five different angles selectable from a thumbwheel switch left of the steering wheel.
Top photo shows the factory-recommended "0" setting, its highest aim. Photo after jump shows the beam at its lowest angle.
Cool touch, nice detail, and useful even when unladen for not only quietly baffling your passengers, but also lighting the way through the mist kicked up by surrounding cars on a wet highway.
