Mississauga, ON / Tokyo, – Mitsubishi Motors Corporation (MMC) recently revealed the all-new Outlander, featuring a new design direction, premium quality, rugged performance and innovative technology. The flagship SUV is reimagined and reinvented in every way and gears up for sale in North America (the United States, Canada and Puerto Rico) in April 2021, with other markets to follow.
The all-new Outlander made its debut on Amazon Live, making it the first automobile to be launched on the platform. After the reveal, Canadian customers are invited to a special Mitsubishi section on Amazon.ca to explore key product features.
“Based on the product concept ”I-Fu-Do-Do”, which means authentic and majestic in Japanese, the all-new Outlander has been crafted into a reliable SUV with significantly upgraded styling, road performance, and a high-quality feel.” said Takao Kato, CEO of MMC. “We believe the all-new Outlander will reshape customer perceptions toward both Mitsubishi Motors the brand and Outlander.” said Juyu Jeon, President and CEO, Mitsubishi Motor Sales of Canada, Inc.”
With a complete upgrade, the all-new Outlander is the 4th generation of the series. Styling emphasizes its powerful sense of presence with the next generation Dynamic Shield front face, large 20-inch wheels2, fenders and bold proportions. Newly developed platform and 2.5L engine, updated electronically-controlled 4WD and S-AWC (Super-All Wheel Control) system, and newly developed drive mode selector all contribute to the safe and secure road performance. The cabin space features an enhanced feeling of quality and convenience through a high-quality interior, three-rows of comfortable seats for seven, large digital meter displays, and a new wireless smartphone charging function.
The newly developed 2.5L gasoline engine is torque-full and powerful at low to medium rpm but smooth and easy-to-handle at high rpm means the driver can enjoy pleasant city trips to fun sporty driving. An 8-speed sport mode CVT is used for the transmission.
All models are equipped with an improved S-AWC integrated vehicle dynamics control system. To provide drivers with driving information safely and more quickly, for the first time Mitsubishi Motors has installed a windshield-type 10.8-inch Head-Up Display (HUD) to project in full colour the information required for driving.
The all-new Outlander is a family SUV that offers three-row, seven seats, which is unique in its class. The seats can be flexibly arranged with multiple configurations to suit the number of passengers and their luggage. Canadian sales start in April 2021 with pricing to be announced.
