Mitsubishi Motors North America is proud to announce that its completely redesigned 2014 Mitsubishi Outlander crossover will be the "Official Safety Vehicle" for this year's 91st running of the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb to be held on June 30, 2013.

With available technologically-advanced safety features including Lane Departure Warning (LDW), Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) and Forward Collision Mitigation (FCM), the stylish seven-passenger 2014 Outlander will represent Mitsubishi in serving as the "Official Safety Vehicle" for this annual motorsports extravaganza.

Held in the breathtaking Rocky Mountains of Colorado, the challenging Pikes Peak International Hill Climb features a unique road course that is 12.42 miles in length with 156 corners, commencing at an elevation of 9,390 feet and finishing at 14,110 feet – nearly three miles above sea level. First run in 1916, this annual event is the second oldest motor race in America after the Indianapolis 500.

Mitsubishi Motors will also serve as the Presenting Sponsor at the 2013 Pikes Peak International Hill Climb.

The Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution high-performance sports sedan will also join the new 2014 Mitsubishi Outlander crossover as a supplemental safety vehicle. These vehicles were built specifically for the race with support coming from AEM, BBS USA, Cobb Tuning, DC Sports, Kenwood USA Corporation, and Muellerized Suspension Tuning.

This year, Mitsubishi Motors will return to the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb with an all-new, more powerful 100% electric-powered prototype racing car dubbed the MiEV Evolution II in a two-car assault, in the hands of two-time Dakar Rally winner Hiroshi Masuoka and six-time Pikes Peak overall motorcycle champion and 2002 SCORE International off-road series champion Greg Tracy.
