I planned our Mother-Daughter Colorado road trip well. All the way through the Colorado mountains, we drove this awesome 2017 Mitsubishi Outlander SEL S-AWC Eco Mode.

Last week my mom and I took a very much-needed vacation to Colorado to see her sister and my cousins. When we arrived at the Denver airport, this fuel economy 2017 Mitsubishi Outlander was waiting for us to test drive for one full week. Good thing, because we were road trippin’ from the Denver Airport all the way through the mountains to Grand Junction, CO. I kept the Mitsubishi in ECO Mode all the way, and let me tell you…the gas mileage was exceptional.

From start to finish, I was impressed with the 2017 Mitsubishi Outlander just because it was the perfect vehicle to drive while driving in an area we’d never been to, so we felt safe, secure, and relaxed.
What is Eco Mode on Mitsubishi Outlander?
“While in ECO Mode the Outlander activates energy-saving measures that reduce engine power on initial acceleration and helps the air conditioning system use a balanced amount of energy.”

I’d recommend this 2017 Mitsubishi Outlander to families, sporty consumers, and even to the elderly. My mom and aunt enjoyed tooling around in it. They both said it was easy to get in and out of, and my aunt particularly noticed the good-looking wheels!
With our backpack gear in tow, I traveled with my mom from the Denver airport to Grand Junction with a few stops along the way, having the best mom and daughter road trip to date. We drove all around Grand Junction with my relatives in tow, enjoyed beautiful mountain scenery, and even saw a little snow on top.
At the end of my vacation, I drove to Aspen and stayed the night in Glenwood Springs, using very little gas. I made it back to the airport using less than two tanks of gas.
What an adventure! After coming home from Colorado, I found this Site Locator For Colorado GPS Compatible that I wished I had for our trip. It’s 100% GPS compatible with loads of sites ready to drive directly by following either the directions of your GPS device or by the advice given in the book.
