The 2021 Mitsubishi Outlander has been spied undergoing testing in the United States.
While the model is heavily camouflaged, it was previewed by the Engelberg Tourer concept, which debuted at the Geneva Motor Show previously this year.
2021 Mitsubishi Outlander Styling
The styling has been softened for production. However, the crossover features a massive Dynamic Shield grille, which lives above a trapezoidal consumption. The crossover also has split lighting units as slender turn signals, and daytime running lights are installed above large headlights.
Moving even more back, we can see an angular windshield and a fairly flat roof. The crossover also has a familiar character line and pronounced wheel arches.
The rear end has been given a transformation as well, and it features an angular window and a tailgate with an integrated spoiler. Even more, listed below, there are slim taillights that echo the ones used on the Engelberg Tourer concept.
Little is known about the crossover at this point, but previous reports have suggested the model could ride on the very same platform that underpins the Nissan Rogue. That remains unconfirmed, but Mitsubishi’s North American product manager has previously stated, “The next-generation Outlander will be the very first ideas of executing and utilizing typical platforms and sharing technologies” with alliance partners Renault and Nissan.
2021 Mitsubishi Outlander Engine
Engine choices remain a bit more mystical as it’s unclear if Mitsubishi will tap into Nissan’s parts bin. However, a plug-in hybrid variation is anticipated, and it might use an updated version of the existing powertrain.
The redesigned Outlander is expected to be unveiled next year, and the company seems to target the Honda CR-V, Subaru Forester, and Toyota RAV4 as all three models were found being tested together with the prototype.
