Restyled 2016 Outlander Awaits in New York

Mitsubishi is inviting everyone to “come see the new face of Mitsubishi Motors” at the 2015 New York International Auto Show, where it will be revealing what can only be the restyled 2016 Outlander SUV.

That assumption can be made from the poster that came with the announcement, which depicts a fairly recognizable front end. But as we know from previous spy shots, Mitsubishi has gone to work on both the front fascia and much of the rear end of the most popular vehicle in its lineup.

There’s also good reason to think the restyling will coincide with the American debut of the Outlander’s plug-in hybrid version, which has us expecting a design more or less along the lines of the Outlander PHEV Concept-S previously unveiled at the 2014 Paris Motor Show.

In any case, we can’t wait to have the new 2016 Outlander at Pantili Mitsubishi. Stay tuned for the press conference at 11:30AM ET on April 2nd for the big reveal!

Mitsubishi L200 Debut: Geneva Motor Show

There’s a new and improved sport utility truck on the way and its coming from Mitsubishi. The last time we saw this thing back in November 2014, it was called the Triton. Now, the Mitsubishi L200 debut is set for the Geneva Motor Show in March.

The L200 is heading into its fifth generation. According to Mitsubishi, it offers “new heights of reliability, toughness, interior comfort, and maneuverability.” The interior cabin is more spacious and quieter than previous models. The club-cab version now includes rear doors, cruise control, dual-zone automatic climate control, a rear view camera, and steering wheel adjustments for comfort.

Under the hood is a 2.4-liter MIVEC turbo diesel engine that comes in two models. The base model enters the ring at 152 hp and 280 lb-ft of torque. The power model reaches 178 hp and 317 lb-ft of torque. The engine is wrapped in a pretty bow with a six speed manual transmission that drops carbon dioxide emissions by 17%.

Safety is standard as usual with Mitsubishi. Active Stability & Traction Control now comes with Trailer Stability Assist, Hill start Assist, and Lane Departure Warning. LED daytime running lights also come standard.

There you have it; the all-new Mitsubishi L200 sport utility truck. Sporty, environmentally green, and everything in between.
