Rumors About the Upcoming 2021 Mitsubishi Outlander
Car and Driver recently came across spy photos of a camouflaged 2021 Mitsubishi Outlander prototype. While nothing is for certain, there are some educated guesses that can be made about the future model.
What’s Currently on the Market: 2019 Mitsubishi Outlander
Here’s what the 2021 Mitsubishi Outlander could include
Although the SUV’s exterior was camouflaged, it seems as though the 2021 Outlander could have similar features to the Engelberg Tourer concept car. The SUV could accordingly offer the unique grille surround, front-end headlight arrangement, and taillight shapes of the Engelberg Tourer.
When comparing the 2021 Outlander prototype to the 2019 Outlander, it looks like the SUV will have an increase in size for the 2021 model year. The current Outlander model is already large for a compact SUV, so the growth could move the next model up to the mid-size-SUV segment.
A larger exterior would of course lead to a roomier and more comfortable interior. The 2021 Outlander Sport is also rumored to increase in size. This would in effect make the Eclipse Cross the smallest in the SUV lineup, while the Outlander Sport would be a nice compact option.
Mitsubishi hasn’t revealed anything about the powertrains of the 2021 Outlander. However, it’s reasonable to suspect that the engine options could include a turbocharged 1.5-liter inline-four engine for the base. A V6 engine could also be an available engine. Furthermore, the plug-in-hybrid powertrain of the current Outlander has a good chance of also being offered for future versions of the model.
