The new renderings and spy shots of the forthcoming 2022 Mitsubishi Outlander reveal some exciting changes. According to some leaked documents, the next-generation Outlander will share a platform with the recently introduced Nissan Rogue.
Basically, as we can see from the first renderings, the new Outlander comes with similar dimensions and shape as the Rogue model. However, Mitsubishi’s unique front-end styling separates it from the rest models in the class. Compared to the outgoing model, the upcoming model receives a 13 percent power increase, thanks to the new engine.
2022 Mitsubishi Outlander Exterior
From the renderings, the design of the new 2022 Mitsubishi Outlander will be totally different from what we used to see. Generally, this SUV looks more rugged, and we like the mix of the original language and futuristic one. The most noticeable visual change is on the front.
The new model wears the latest dynamic shield grille, fog lights, and marker lights. The headlights are also different and more tin than before. Overall, the design is futuristic, and we cannot wait to see the final version. Many believe that the Mitsubishi Engelberg Tourer will heavily inspire the new Outlander.
Interior Changes and Updates
According to many reports, the cabin of the forthcoming 2022 Mitsubishi Outlander will come with some substantial modifications. All Outlander models come in the form of 7-seaters except for the PHEV, which is a 5-seater. Generally, there is plenty of room inside, and folding down both rows of seats, it opens 63 cubic feet of available cargo space.
Like before, we can expect the 2022 Mitsubishi Outlander to be available in trim levels ES, SE, LE, SEL, or GT. The PHEV variant is also on offer, and it comes only with an SEL or a GT. The entry-level ES models are reasonably well-equipped. This trim includes a new touch screen infotainment system, rearview camera, driver’s seat power lumbar support, dual-zone automatic climate control, keyless entry, Bluetooth, heated front seats, and side mirrors.
2022 Mitsubishi Outlander Powertrain Specs
From the latest news, the forthcoming 2022 Mitsubishi Outlander will be more potent than before. Generally, this SUV will get a 13 percent power increase. Thanks to the new engine that powers it, Outlander is delivering more output. Under the hood is a Rogue’s 2.5-litre four-cylinder engine that makes 188 horsepower.
The Outlander PHEV is the best-selling plug-in hybrids on the market. Generally, PHEV will continue playing a pivotal role in Mitsubishi’s lineup. This system consists of an electrified 2.4-liter engine with a total range of over 430 miles. We also get information, that Nissan will later launch a Rogue PHEV boasting that same Mitsubishi-developed powertrain.
How Much Would the 2022 Mitsubishi Outlander Cost?
The arrival of the 2022 Mitsubishi Outlander will happen next year. Many experts believe that it would be released before the summertime. The Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price should remain, and Outlander ES that comes with a front-wheel-drive model starts over $25,890, while PHEV costs $37,200 for an SEL model and $41,000 for a GT.
