Cars 101: All About Trim Levels

When you buy a new car, you have more to decide than year, make, and model (though we’d love to help you with the make — just pick Mitsubishi)! You also have to consider the trim levels and determine which one is right for you.

Cars 101: All About Trim Levels | JBA Mitsubishi | Glen Burnie, MDSo what is a trim level? In short, trim levels further distinguish one model from another. Take the 2018 Mitsubishi Outlander, for example; trim levels help you further break down that specific Outlander to determine which set of features and potentially which powertrain you’d like. The Outlander trims include the ES 2.4, the SE 2.4, the LE 2.4, the SEL 2.4, and the GT 3.0 S-AWC.

Each of these trims offers specific features. Typically, as you move up in trim levels, you add on to the features available on the previous trim. Sometimes, a specific feature will be removed and replaced with something of a higher quality. For example, on a lower trim level, you may get cloth seats, but a higher trim level could change them out for leather seats and add in a heated seat feature.

Typically, the features that change from trim to trim could include the engine and transmission, the technology, the convenience and comfort features, or the safety features.
