On the tests, we noticed a pre-production all-terrain vehicle, the manufacturer promises to organize a public premiere for next year. The appearance of the new Outlander was in many ways similar to the concept of the Mitsubishi Engelberg Tourer, which debuted in the spring in Geneva.

The conceptual Mitsubishi Engelberg Tourer gave us an idea of ​​what the fourth generation of the popular Mitsubishi Outlander crossover might look like. This concept car was a hybrid with a power plant, like the Outlander PHEV model. The current generation of cross-country gets a power plant based on a 2.4-liter 135-horsepower aspirated, two electric engines with 82 and 95 hp, as well as batteries with a capacity of 13.8 kW / h. All this helped the SUV to drive on electric traction alone up to 65 kilometers.

 According to experts, with the change of generation, the PHEV modification as a whole will retain its scheme, however, the manufacturer can change individual components.

Adjustments will affect the standard versions of Outlander. Currently, the engine range of this cross includes gasoline engines for two, 2.4 and three liters with a return from 150 to 227 hp, as well as a 2.2-liter 150-horsepower diesel engine. The next-generation Outlander will also replace the Mitsubishi GS platform with the Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi modular CMF-CD platform. With the new acquisition, the Outlander will intermarry with the next-generation Nissan Rogue / X-Trail.

Such a rapprochement of the Alliance models makes it possible to adapt new engines for Mitsubishi Outlander. For example, the 150-horsepower diesel 1.7 dCi, which recently appeared in the European Nissan X-Trail. And if you look ahead for a few years, you can dream of a fully electric Mitsubishi Outlander.
