2020 was a crazy year for the global economy and many industries that rely on the mass manufacturing of products. Although robots do a lot of the heavy lifting these days, it’s not all automated. Now that we’re in a new year, businesses are trying to bounce back, and more so than ever the automotive industry. Automakers are releasing plenty of new vehicles to stir up consumers and bring them back after the pandemic. One automaker refreshing its lineup for the new year is Mitsubishi Motors, and the new Outlander is quite the surprise.
The first surprise would be its questionable quarterly sales. Only 4106 units sold in comparison with its sporty sibling, the Outlander Sport, with 13,356 units sold. However, last year, during a pandemic, the Outlander outsold the Outlander Sport, but not by much. We think it could be because the Outlander Sport was offering a lot of features the Outlander did not. Well, that all changes with the new generation of the 2022 Mitsubishi Outlander.
Just take a look at all the refreshed Outlander has to offer. Compared to the last model year and rendition, we could almost call it a new model altogether. Staring from the ground up, the new 2022 Mitsubishi Outlander has been built on a whole new platform compared to its previous generation. The fourth generation of the Outlander, starting in the 2022 model year but released in 2021, got a new platform and powertrain from Nissan. Thanks to the inclusion of Mitsubishi Motors in the Renault-Nissan Alliance, Mitsubishi has been able to make use of resources and technology previously unavailable. The same goes for Renault and Nissan, benefitting from the tech Mitsubishi has developed over the years.
Powering the 2022 Mitsubishi Outlander is a new 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine, pushing the 2.4-Liter V4 engine of the last generation out of the picture. New engineering has been added for better control and handling – specifically, Mitsubishi Motors’ own brand of all-wheel drive (AWD), Super All-Wheel Control, able to keep the driver in control in various driving conditions. Designed with a more muscular look, a new Dynamic Shield front fascia sends a new signal for the future look of Mitsubishi vehicles.
The interior cabin has also been upgraded in a multitude of ways, from the seat trim to the tech in the center console. Although the base comes standard with cloth upholstery, the next trim comes with synthetic leather, and the rest of the lineup some sweet real leather. There are a total of five trims that make up the 2022 Outlander lineup – ES 2.5L, SE 2.5L, SEL 2.5L, SE Launch Edition, and SEL Launch Edition. Yes, Launch Edition means something special. Both Launch Editions can come with a panoramic sunroof, heated front and rear seats, triple-zone automatic climate control, and an auto-dimming rearview mirror.
The technology really got a wallop of upgrades. We’re talking about available features like a 10.8-inch full-color Head-Up Display (HUD), and wireless smartphone charging capability. Standard is the Mitsubishi signature Smartphone Link Display (SDA), with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay capability, Bluetooth voice command technology, steering wheel audio and phone controls, and a rearview camera. The standard 4-speaker system, but a 10-speaker BOSE® audio system is available for select trims. Safety also gets an upgraded with Mitsubishi’s industry-leading Mitsubishi Connect smart-car system, offering Mitsubishi’s MI-PILOT Assist driver assistance, as well as adaptive cruise control and lane-keep assist, and integrated navigation using what3words technology on select trims.
It sounds like a brand-new Outlander SUV. Check out the 2022 Mitsubishi Outlander at Miami Lakes Automall.
