Mitsubishi Motors Announces 2023 Lineup
Mitsubishi Motors has been pretty busy releasing new generation models of many vehicles in the lineup. Returning for the 2023 model year (MY23), the entire lineup comes with the same great features, and some will even release a Ralliart variation, with styling and upgrades for the aftermarket Mitsubishi subsidiary. Brought back in 2021, Mitsubishi revived Ralliart to release special edition trims of its current model lineup and future models. Set for 2023 release, check out the new 2023 model highlights for Mitsubishi Motors.
All released with a new generation in 2022, the Mitsubishi Outlander SUV changed the game for the automaker, achieving the best four consecutive retail sales quarters for the model in over 20 years. Celebrating 40 years, the Outlander model lineup will be expanding to release a 40th Anniversary special edition and a Ralliart edition in early 2023. Returning for MY23 is the popular Black Edition for the SE and SEL trims. New features this year include electric folding mirrors as a lineup standard, and rear-door pull-up sunshades on the SEL, previously requiring an add-on package. A Mitsubishi-first, a black-roof factory option will be available for select trims for added style.
With great success, the Mitsubishi Outlander spawned a plug-in hybrid SUV many years ago, the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV. Seeing many great years overseas before coming stateside, this plug-in proved Mitsubishi could make a great PHEV for the future. With advanced tech and Mitsubishi Motors Super All-Wheel Control (S-AWC) all-wheel drive system, this was a combination of connectivity, electric propulsion, and performance. Sporting a new generation of Mitsubishi Motors’ twin-motor 4WD PHEV system, the Outlander PHEV comes with more powerful front and rear motors and a larger drive battery than its predecessor. This adds to the all-electric driving range, and a boost to overall range comes from a larger gas tank as well. The Outlander PHEV also came with Mitsubishi Connect (two-year trial), a new infotainment system that brings standard remote connectivity to all Outlander and Outlander PHEV models starting in model year 2023.
Joining the pack is the Outlander Sport. Not many changes came to this model in 2022, but in 2023, the SUV will come equipped with Mitsubishi’s All-Wheel Control (AWC) standard across the lineup. Like other Outlander models, the Outlander Sport will offer a Ralliart limited-edition model early in 2023. Not receiving a next-gen, but more of a refresh, the Eclipse Cross has seen some changes in the past. With revised style inside and out, an upgraded infotainment system, and an all-new 18-inch wheel design for 2023, the Eclipse Cross keeps up in terms of performance with Mitsubishi Motors’ signature S-AWC all-wheel drive system as standard equipment. A Ralliart edition will also be released for the 2023 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross.
Almost forgotten about, the Mitsubishi Mirage and Mirage G4 are still kicking it in the lineup. The former a hatchback and the latter a sedan, both vehicles are the most fuel-efficient in their class, in terms of gasoline-powered vehicles. For 2023, the Mirage will get its own Ralliart special edition early in 2023. Both models are also very reliable, lasting for years on the road. All Mitsubishi Motors consumers are lucky, able to keep their Mitsubishi in incredible shape with its warranty package. All Mitsubishi vehicles are covered by a basic limited warranty for 5 years/60,000 miles, a powertrain limited warranty for 10 years/100,000 miles, 7 years or 100,000 miles of anti-corrosion coverage, and roadside assistance.
