NEXT STAGE: Redesign in 2020
Mitsubishi has confirmed that the next-generation Outlander will come in 2020 and be the first vehicle on an alliance platform, specifically sharing mechanicals with the Nissan Rogue. But Mitsubishi executives also insist they will go their own route on styling and not become a Nissan clone. The brands are sharing, essentially, the parts that consumers don't see.
The Outlander is likely to get bigger than the current version, which offers a tight third row in the nonhybrid model. The redesigned version should be radically different in every way and go on sale as a 2021 model. It likely will have some styling elements from the Engelberg Tourer concept shown this year in Geneva. A hybrid version is likely in addition to the current plug-in hybrid option.
NEXT STAGE: Freshen in 2023
A freshening of the next-generation model could come in 2023 for the 2024 model year. For the 2020 model year, the current Outlander gets the blacked-out Special Edition trim, and the plug-in version gets a new premium interior package on the GT trim.
