The Mitsubishi Outlander Sport already offers a little bit of everything to drivers, but that hasn’t stopped Mitsubishi from finding new ways to offer its customers even more. It was recently announced that Mitsubishi is once again expanding the Outlander Sport lineup with the addition of the 2021 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport Limited Edition.

The Limited Edition may be the most opulent iteration of the Outlander Sport yet. The exterior of this new Outlander Sport model is marked by 18-inch black-painted alloy wheels, black outside mirrors, and a black grille. Inside, drivers will find red accent stitching throughout the seating, steering wheel, and shifter.

The 2021 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport Limited Edition will also add an 8-inch Smartphone-link Display Audio system. This system will be compatible with both Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto®, keeping you connected no matter which kind of smartphone device you use.

Other exciting additions to the Outlander Sport Limited Edition include heated front seats and a leather-wrapped steering wheel.

Meanwhile, the Black Edition trim of the Outlander Sport is set to receive some brand-new features for the 2021 model year. Chief among these new features is a safety suite consisting of Automatic High Beam headlights, Lane Departure Warning, and Forward Collision Mitigation.

A new teaser for the 2022 Mitsubishi Outlander has hit the web. Although the image doesn’t reveal too many details about the new 5-passenger compact SUV, it does reveal enough to raise our collective excitement over what promises to be a technologically advanced, comfortable, and safe family vehicle.

A new Dynamic Shield concept gives the exterior design a more robust look. The primary headlights are repositioned to rest directly below the turn signal lamps. Its style is further enhanced thanks to an hourglass-shaped front fascia and a biplane grille. Altogether, these exterior developments give the 2022 Outlander an appearance more akin to trucks than compact SUVs.

Size increases and technology improvements are also expected for the 2022 Mitsubishi Outlander. The vehicle will run off the power of a brand-new engine, replacing the 2021 Outlander’s 2.0-liter and 2.4-liter MIVEC, the latter of which generates a whopping 168 horsepower.

Rumors are swirling that this new SUV will sport a Nissan engine. Likewise, Nissan is rumored to be incorporating Mitsubishi’s PHEV system into one of its new vehicles. However, none of this has yet been confirmed.

A livestream in February of 2021 will provide the platform for the official debut of the 2022 Mitsubishi Outlander. Like you, we here at Don Robinson Mitsubishi can’t wait to find out more about this exciting new SUV!

A great feature to have on your vehicle in Minnesota is all-wheel drive. This drivetrain gives the car greater stability on slick winter roads and dirt paths. If you are considering a new Mitsubishi from Don Robinson, like the Outlander SUV, you need to check out S-AWC.

Mitsubishi’s Super All-Wheel Control system has an advanced function that continually manages driving and braking forces of all four wheels. The Outlander is the most popular Mitsubishi model equipped with S-AWC. In its setup, the Outlander uses Active Yaw Control (AYC) to regulate torque between the left and right wheels.

The Outlander S-AWC system comes with four driving modes. AWC ECO sends torque mainly to the front wheels to enhance fuel economy but will automatically switch to 4WD if you encounter slippery roads. NORMAL mode sends torque to any wheel as needed. When driving in wintery conditions, the SNOW mode can help optimize traction. The fourth mode, LOCK, keeps the system operating in 4WD for better all-terrain performance at all times.

If you choose the Outlander PHEV, it comes standard with S-AWC; however, its system is different than the standard Outlander. It is equipped with a Twin Motor 4WD system along with AYC. It comes with two driving modes: NORMAL and 4WD LOCK.

It has been a while since the Mitsubishi Outlander had a redesign, so the much-anticipated next-generation Outlander will be coming into the spotlight in 2021. Here’s what we know so far.

The current-generation Outlander first debuted in 2014, so a redesign is definitely welcome, and new spy photos have spotted an Outlander prototype testing in the Midwest. Despite its camouflage, the new Outlander already gives us a few hints about its future. It will likely be bigger, sitting on a larger platform. Its blunt nose and headlight design give the impression it will be taking design cues from the Mitsubishi Engelberg Tourer concept.

Reporters guess that the next Outlander will house the same 1.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder that the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross uses, generating 153 horsepower, though the Outlander could muster more power.

An exciting possible option is a plug-in hybrid version. Working off the Engelberg Tourer concept, a 2.4-liter four-cylinder twin-motor design would be the engine of choice in the 2021 Outlander, giving the Outlander great fuel economy rates. Mitsubishi has even made claims that the engine could deliver 43 miles on the electric engine alone.

Although not much is known as of yet, the prototype is definitely making for an exciting spring when the automaker is sure to release more details. Keep in touch with Don Robinson Mitsubishi to learn more when the redesigned 2021 Outlander debuts.

Plus, you can easily find any off-road destination in a Mitsubishi Outlander, the perfect vehicle for the trip. With added storage space and a rugged exterior, any off-road adventure is a breeze.

One of the top Minnesota trails, according to TrailLink, is the Dakota Rail Regional Trail. This 26.6-mile trail is composed of asphalt and gravel, which is perfect for most beginners. As part of the Rails-to-Trails Conservancy, this trail was converted from old rail lines. Activities include biking, inline skating, fishing, and even cross country skiing. Plus, it’s wheelchair accessible.

Lake Wobegon is also a popular trail in the area. This one is a whopping 60 miles, with an asphalt surface that is also built on an old rail line. Biking, skating, walking, and snowmobiling are all perfect for this trail, and there are great places to fish along the way. Again, this trail is also wheelchair accessible, making it perfect for those with limited mobility.

Finally, hop in your Mitsubishi and drive to the Paul Bunyan State Trail. Measuring over 119 miles, this asphalt trail passes through forests, over 10 rivers and streams, and along more than 20 lakes.

The Paris Motor Show is one of a handful of major automotive events held around the world throughout the year. It’s a time for automakers to show off production models and concept vehicles alike. Mitsubishi was out to take the spotlight this year with a set of concepts that were easy on the eyes, to say the least.

A next-generation plug-in hybrid crossover took center stage, but it wasn’t the Outlander we were hoping for. Instead, the GT-PHEV concept, otherwise known as the Grand Tourer, is the latest hybrid concept to debut in recent years.

Next year, however, is an entirely new story.

Starting in 2017, Mitsubishi’s debuts will no longer just be concepts. Instead, production models will take the helm under the leadership of Tsunehire Kunimoto, Mitsubishi’s new global design chief. His strategy is to boast about the brand’s reputation while continuing to move forward.

Remember that Grand Tourer Concept? There’s a very real possibility it could become the next-generation Outlander in 2019. As a result, Mitsubishi played with an upscale design theme for the 2016 Paris Motor Show.

The GT-PHEV boasted a floating roof and maximized space and visibility on the interior. The future of Mitsubishi begins at the Geneva Motor Show next spring where the Japanese automaker will unveil its newest crossover.

We here at Don Robinson Mitsubishi are happy with what we saw at the Paris Motor Show!
