Mitsubishi MI-Pilot Assist

Making its debut onboard the all-new 2024 Mitsubishi Outlander, MI-Pilot Assist will help keep South Dakota drivers safely in their lane.

As the 2024 Outlander makes its debut at Vern Eide Mitsubishi in Sioux Falls, another exciting introduction is in order, because the newly redesigned Mitsubishi SUV is the automaker’s first vehicle (U.S.) to be equipped with MI-Pilot Assist. As South Dakota’s trusted Mitsubishi dealer, our knowledgeable staff is here to explain what MI-Pilot Assist is and how this driver-assistance feature works.

What is MI-Pilot Assist?

MI-Pilot Assist is an advanced safety feature designed to alleviate some of the stress that’s associated with stop-and-go traffic and long-distance driving. Mitsubishi calls this new feature same-lane highway driving assistance technology. Essentially, MI-Pilot Assist enhances the functionality of the Adaptive Cruise Control system (ACC) and Lane Keep Assist (LKA) with the ultimate goal of keeping your vehicle in the center of the lane.

How does Mitsubishi’s MI-Pilot Assist work?

Using a high-performance monocular camera and millimeter wave radar, Mitsubishi’s MI-Pilot Assist works together with ACC and LKA, lending a helping hand to these driver-assistance technologies in the following ways:

1. Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC)

ACC has three interval settings and MI-Pilot Assist helps the system maintain the programmed distance between you and the detected vehicle ahead.

ACC will remain on standby when your vehicle is stopped. MI-Pilot Assist helps deactivate the system after three minutes of inactivity and will engage the electric parking brake.

2. Lane Keep Assist (LKA)

LKA can provide steering inputs to keep your vehicle in the center of a recognized lane. MI-Pilot Assist will help activate the system if a vehicle is detected ahead.

3. MI-Pilot Assist Steering Controls

In addition to keeping your vehicle in the center of a detected lane, Mitsubishi’s MI-Pilot Assist system will provide steering inputs to help navigate poor road conditions and certain driving scenarios. These aforementioned steering wheel inputs can help avoid the impact of bumps and cracks, lessen the impact of sloping roads, and increase vehicle stability on winding curves while remaining in the detected lane.

MI-Pilot Assist system can even recognize speed limit signs and automatically adjust vehicle speed to comply with them, enhancing the overall safety of Mitsubishi vehicles.

New Driver-Assistance System Continues Mitsubishi’s Legacy of Innovation

With over 100 years of automotive innovation, Mitsubishi Motors continues its groundbreaking work in the field of hybrid and electric vehicles, high-level performance with Super All-Wheel Control (S-AWC), and now with safety and the all-new MI-Pilot Assist system. We can’t wait to see what innovative technology Mitsubishi comes up with next!
