There is a lot going on for Mitsubishi Motors after the new strategy for the Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi Alliance was announced. Sounds like Mitsubishi already has a new vehicle set to come out for the C/D segment, of which could mean we could be getting anything from a subcompact to a large car. A lot is still up for guessing, but there is one thing we won’t have to guess – when the new lineup from Mitsubishi Motors will arrive on dealership lots. Starting in the fall of 2020, the revised, refreshed, and new-generation models from the Mitsubishi lineup will make their way to U.S. soil.
Recently, Mitsubishi Motors ranked high in the 2020 J.D. Power Initial Quality Study (IQS), with its famous 2020 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport coming in third place for the Small SUV car segment. Upgraded with new standard levels of equipment, the Outlander Sport continues to improve. The J.D. Power IQS ranks vehicles based on how well they keep their initial quality over 90 days of ownership. Data is collected by surveys sent out to owners of these vehicles, ultimately ranking each on a Problems-Per-100 units scale, or how many problems one would find in 100 vehicles by that automaker. With a score of 148 PP100, Mitsubishi Motors became the top-rated Japanese brand for 2020.
If you didn’t know it, the world’s best-selling plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV) is the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV, and the 2021 Outlander PHEV model will be making its way to dealerships in winter 2020. With a new powertrain, an updated internal combustion engine is coupled with a larger and more refined electric drive system. Together, the Outlander PHEV generates more horsepower and offers an increase when driving on electricity alone with a longer all-electric range.
Kicking of the first quarter of 2021 will be the 2021 Mitsubishi Mirage hatchback and 2021 Mitsubishi Mirage G4 sedan. Always the star, the Mirage is the U.S.’s most fuel-efficient vehicle that isn’t a hybrid of some kind. Updated with richer styling and new standard safety equipment, the Mitsubishi Mirage always makes a comeback. Another stylish vehicle will be joining the Mirage during Q1.
Ready for a new rendition of the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross? Popping a year early, the 2022 model year of the Mitsubishi crossover will be making its way to the streets. Showing off some new front and rear styling to enhance the already groovy-looking SUV. The Eclipse Cross will also be teasing the new Mitsubishi’s next-generation design language that we will get a closer look at with a new generation vehicle. But first, the Eclipse Cross has its own new fresh look that extends to the interior with a new infotainment system.
Now back to the new generation vehicle. Going on sale in 2021, it’s the 2022 all-new next-generation Mitsubishi Outlander. It’s bigger, bolder and better than ever with more features and equipment. The new Outlander fully embraces the Mitsubishi design language with an aggressive appearance that makes it stand out amongst the saturated market of SUVs and crossovers. The interior also comes fully-loaded with enhancements and new tech. A global reveal and launch event will reveal more information sometime in early 2021.
It sounds like Mitsubishi Motors already has its work cut out for it. Follow along with us on Miami Lakes Mitsubishi social media for coverage on that global launch event for the 2022 all-new next-generation Mitsubishi Outlander.
