Mitsubishi announced the start of production of the next generation Mitsubishi Outlander crossover. The first serial cross has already rolled off the assembly line of one of the Japanese factories of the brand.

The Japanese intend to bring the first consignment of commercial “Outlander” to North America. The debut of a new generation crossover will be organized here. Recall, the brand is going to present the newest Mitsubishi Outlander next week, February 16.

The assembly of the novelty is carried out by the Japanese plant in Okazaki. With the change of generation, the legendary Japanese crossover received a new corporate design, premium finishing materials, improved driving characteristics, etc.

It is already known that it was decided to unify the novelty with the Nissan X-Trail, based on the CMF-C / D platform. The next Outlander can borrow a power unit from the Nissan crossover: an 184-horsepower 2.5-liter gasoline engine working in conjunction with a variator.

In some regional markets, after the generation change, the hybrid version will also remain. Such crossovers never made it to our country. Also, the new product is predicted to have an improved all-wheel drive and a convenient selector for switching driving modes.

North American customers of the brand will be the first to test the novelty, after which the cross will begin to conquer other car markets.
