For 2021, the Outlander only comes as a plug-in hybrid that has been updated to a 2.4-liter four cylinder engine with an upgraded electric motor that provides a combined output of 221-hp. It can do a claimed 24-miles on electric power before switching to hybrid mode. The 2.4-liter four-cylinder and the 3.0-liter V6 engines have been dropped. Outdated and outclassed, the Outlander struggles to compete.

Reliability

Our extensive survey data, combined with our technical knowledge, allows us to expertly predict the reliability of new and redesigned models.

Predicted Reliability

No Detailed Data Available

Consumer Reports obtains its reliability data from a questionnaire that is sent to subscribers. In the questionnaire, we ask subscribers to note any problems with their cars that occurred in the past 12 months. They are asked to identify problems that they considered serious (because of cost, failure, safety, or downtime).

A typical model has about 200 to 400 samples for each model year. For some model years, typically those of older or less popular cars, we do not have a large enough sample size to provide results of statistical confidence.

There are several ways in which a savvy car buyer can still research the quality of a car.

For this Rating, we averaged a model’s Overall Reliability for the newest three years, provided the vehicle did not change significantly in that time and hasn’t been redesigned for 2020. We include a prediction for a model that is new or has been redesigned, based on its reliability history or the manufacturer’s track record.
