2022 MITSUBISHI OUTLANDER
In February 2021, Mitsubishi Motors revealed the new generation of the Mitsubishi Outlander, known as the 2022 Mitsubishi Outlander, during the first-ever Amazon Live event. Already making headlines, there are a lot of things to look forward to for the new SUV. Although many of the official specs have yet to be added to the manufacturer website, this page will be updated with new information as soon as it’s available.

For the 2022 model year, the Mitsubishi Outlander has only five trims in contrast to the previous six - ES 2.5L, SE 2.5L, SEL 2.5L, SE Launch Edition, and SEL Launch Edition. In 2020, the sixth trim was a GT trim and had its own engine. This year, it is suspected that the new 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine will be the standard engine across the lineup. Horsepower and torque have not yet been reported, but we can suspect something between the 166 - 224 horsepower and 162-216 lb-ft of torque range, if not better from the previous model year available (2020).
A continuously variable transmission (CVT) was the standard transmission for 2020 (excluding the GT), as was Super All-Wheel Control – the same is suspected for the 2022 Mitsubishi Outlander SUV. Fuel economy has not yet been reported. The new generation Outlander comes with a new drive mode selector. With up to six distinct settings to choose from, drivers may find the driving settings that best fits their own style.
Speaking of style, a new generation of the Dynamic Shield dons the front fascia of the new generation 2022 Mitsubishi Outlander SUV. If going by the previous model year, automatic headlamps will become available after the base trim. According to current data released, heated exterior mirrors will start being available after the base ES 2.5L trim, along with a hands free power remote liftgate. Roof-rails start on the SEL 2.5L trim, and both Launch Editions can add a panoramic sunroof for a little natural sunlight and fresh air. 18-inch wheels are the standard but select trims will be able to upgrade to 20-inch wheels.
Fabric seating was the standard upholstery for the 2020 model year and is expected to be the same for the new generation 2022 Outlander. Other standard features include a 60/40 split fold-down seat second row and/or a 50/50 flat-fold third-row. Past the base, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift-knob, and synthetic leather upholstery or soft-touch materials are the standard. Leather trimmed seating, heated front and rear seats, triple-zone automatic climate control, and an auto-dimming rearview mirror all start on the SEL 2.5L trim. Both Launch Editions offer a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster and 9-inch center screen in place of the dashboard.
The standard setup is usually a four-speaker system, with the SEL Launch Edition able to upgrade to a 10-speaker BOSE® audio system. All trims definitely come with the new 8-inch smartphone-link display audio (SDA) system, with Google Android Auto and Apple CarPlay capability. Available on the new 2022 Mitsubishi Outlander is also wireless smartphone charging capability via both apps. The last model year came standard with Bluetooth voice command technology, steering wheel audio and phone controls, and a rearview camera.
The SEL Launch Edition comes with a 10.8-inch full-color Heads-Up Display (HUD) on the windshield and Mitsubishi’s industry-leading Mitsubishi Connect smart-car system. For now, the Launch Editions add on a 3-month subscription to Audible™, 6-month Amazon Prime Music™ subscription, and Amazon Echo Euto™. Who knows how long this deal will last, Launch Editions usually only last halfway into model year.
Safety Features and Warranty
The 2022 Mitsubishi Outlander should come with all same basic safety features, including advanced dual-stage front airbags, a driver’s knee airbag, side curtain airbags and front seat-mounted side airbags, stability and traction control systems, and LATCH child seat system, an anti-theft engine immobilizer, and built using the RISE body construction method. Select trims will also be the first to utilize Mitsubishi’s MI-PILOT Assist driver assistance system with adaptive cruise control and lane-keep assist, and will introduce the new TomTom integrated navigation using what3words technology.
All Mitsubishi Motors vehicles come with a 10-year/100,000-mile Powertrain Limited Warranty, a 5-year/60,000-miles, anti-corrosion protection for 7-years or 100,000 miles (whichever comes first), and roadside assistance coverage for 5 years with unlimited miles.
