The next-generation Mitsubishi Outlander is being tested in the USA. It is set to arrive in 2020 as a 2021 model.
America will be one of its key markets.
Car paparazzi’s cameras caught the all-new Mitsubishi Outlander on the roads in Michigan. It wears the camouflage, of, course, but some details make the vehicle conspicuous.
First of all, its size: the SUV is significantly larger than its predecessor. The 2021 Outlander looks closer to the Hyundai Santa Fe or the Honda Pilot.
It is logical to assume that the next Mitsubishi Outlander Sport will also become bigger, and, it this case, the Eclipse Cross will be the smallest offering in the range.
The new Outlander may well be built on the Eclipse Cross‘s platform, its elongated variant.
Besides, headlamps layout, taillights shape, grille surround look unconventional. The upcoming model borrows them from the 2019 Mitsubishi Engelberg Tourer Concept (pictured above).
We cannot say now which engines will power the new-gen Outlander. Probably, the current 1.5-liter inline four-cylinder engine will come standard, and a 6-cylinder one will be optional.
The plug-in-hybrid powertrain will likely carry over from the 2017 model to the 2021 vehicle as well.
