The 2022 Outlander‘s daring face is probably the most hanging a part of the brand new design, with the first headlights mounted decrease than flip sign and marker lamps, as is the development lately. We see the same design on the Hyundai Santa Fe and Chevrolet Blazer. The entrance fascia has a robust hourglass-shaped theme virtually just like the bigger Hyundai Palisade, with a hanging biplane grille, as seen in these leaked images under. There is a robust general resemblance to the strangely-named 2019 Engelberg Tourer Concept, too, which builds on a theme seen within the 2016 PHEV GT idea, if anybody can at present recall something from any 12 months earlier than 2020.

We additionally anticipate the 2022 Outlander PHEV to make use of the identical upgraded plug-in hybrid powertrain that debuted within the 2021 Outlander PHEV. Oh, and by the way in which, the PHEV would be the solely Outlander bought for the 2021 mannequin 12 months whereas everybody waits for the brand new 2022 mannequin.
2022 Mitsubishi Outlander Inside Adjustments
The 2022 Outlander is claimed to have a considerably upgraded inside, with extra refinement—one thing that the Outlander desperately wants. Even a 2016 refresh with an emphasis on the inside solely barely moved the needle in the precise path. Mitsubishi hasn’t teased the inside but, so we are able to solely hope that the corporate has invested what it must on this space.
