I am digging the new Mitsubishi Outlander.  Along with that third row http://www.technologytell.com/in-car-tech/3914/gettin-high-with-mitsubushi-and-nik-wallenda/, Mitsu has went nuts with the infotainment.  When it comes to HD Radio, the best way to fly is to have a built-in chipset (radio tuner) in the headunit.  And Mitsubishi delivered it with a partnership through iBiquity.

Mitsubishi Motors North America is the first automaker to announce integrated audio entertainment and real-time traffic services using HD Radio. The 2014 Outlander will be the first Mitsubishi vehicle to receive real-time traffic information integrated into its navigation system as well as HD Radio.

Two service providers already have active nationwide networks set-up to broadcast their real-time traffic and data information using the HD Radio system: Nokia, which has partnered with a group of radio station companies called the Broadcast Traffic Consortium (BTC); and Clear Channel, which uses its own radio stations to support its Total Traffic Network.

29 automakers have now publicly announced plans to incorporate HD Radio in 150+ models by year-end with more than 70 models featuring HD Radio receivers as standard equipment.
