2022 Mitsubishi Outlander
Mitsubishi Motors recently revealed the new generation of their Outlander SUV on the first-ever Amazon Live reveal event. All official specs are currently thin, but the major differences between the two model years have been discussed. Down to five trims now, there are quite a few differences that make the 2022 Mitsubishi Outlander one to look forward to.
Official Specs to be updated at a later date.

The new 2022 lineup for the Mitsubishi Outlander are the ES 2.5L, SE 2.5L, SEL 2.5L, SE Launch Edition, and SEL Launch Edition. A new 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine is suspected to be powering all five trims, horsepower and torque not yet reported. The previous generation, powered by a 2.4-Liter V4 engine, generated 166 horsepower with 162 lb-ft of torque, and the high-tier 3.0-Liter V6 produced 224 horsepower and 215 lb-ft of torque.
Super All-Wheel Control will be available if not standard on all model trims. This is Mitsubishi Motors’ own brand of all-wheel drive (AWD) that helps the vehicle regain traction and give the driver control in various road conditions. With a new drive mode selector, drivers can scroll through six distinct settings to find settings that fit their driving style.
The new generation of the 2022 Mitsubishi Outlander will be sporting the new Dynamic Shield front face and design for the front fascia, starting with a more muscular look. Heated exterior mirrors start with the SE 2.5L trim, including other available features such as a handsfree power remote liftgate. Both Launch Editions can come with a panoramic sunroof. 18-inch wheels are the standard, but 20-inch wheels will be available on select trims. Roof-rails start on the SEL 2.5L trim.
The only SUV built standard with a third row, the 2022 Mitsubishi Outlander SUV is able to sit up to seven passengers, with the first two rows made up of bucket seats. A 60/40 split fold-down seat or 50/50 flat-fold third-row is usually the case with SUV interiors, as well as cloth upholstery. Leather-trimmed seating starts on the SEL 2.5L trim, but a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift-knob, and synthetic leather upholstery, start on the SE 2.5L trim. Other available features inside the cabin include a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster and 9-inch center screen making up the dashboard in the SE Launch Edition, premium materials, and heated front and rear seats, triple-zone automatic climate control, and an auto-dimming rearview mirror.
The last impressive piece of tech to come from Mitsubishi Motors is their signature Smartphone Link Display (SDA), standard in the new 2022 Mitsubishi Outlander, along with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. Most Mitsubishi vehicles also come with Bluetooth voice command technology, steering wheel audio and phone controls, and a rearview camera. We assume the case is the same here.
Some interesting features pop up this generation, such as an available windshield-display 10.8-inch full-color Head-Up Display (HUD), wireless smartphone charging capability and Mitsubishi’s industry-leading Mitsubishi Connect smart-car system. More upgrades include a 10-speaker BOSE® audio system in contrast to the most likely standard a 4-speaker system. Both Launch Editions also come with a 3-month subscription to Audible™, 6-month Amazon Prime Music™ subscription, and Amazon Echo Euto™.
