This new three-row SUV may appear next year and its design will be based on the concept of Engelberg Tourer.

Recently, in Michigan, we were faced with such mysterious tests of a prototype SUV in camouflage that it took us some time to understand that this is the next-generation Mitsubishi Outlander, most likely in 2021. The key gifts were the non-standard arrangement of the headlights, the unusual edging of the grille and the shape of the taillights, which were taken directly from the recent Mitsubishi concept automobile Engelberg Tourer, pictured below.

From the proportions of this prototype it is clear that the next Outlander will significantly increase in size. Currently, it is at the big end of the compact SUV segment and offers up to seven seats, but the new model looks like a reasonable average price, probably with a much more capacious third row of seats. In our opinion, it was the size of a Honda Pilot or Hyundai Santa Fe. This will be followed by the re-equipment of the Mitsubishi SUV line, as we expect the next Outlander Sport to also increase in size. Once the transformation is complete, the Eclipse Cross will be the smallest offer, the Outlander Sport will fit neatly into the compact space, and this Outlander will serve as the company’s mid-size SUV.[IP]&ua=[UA]&domain=[DOMAIN]&page=[PAGE]&secure=[SECURE]&language=[BROWSER_LANGUAGE]&bidfloor=[BIDFLOOR]&gdpr_consent=[GDPR_CONSENT]

We assume (and hope) that this new Outlander will ride on new foundations, perhaps in an extended version of the Eclipse Cross platform. It is also likely that a 1.5-liter inline four-cylinder turbocharged engine with an optional V-6 engine and Outlander hybrid transmission can be used as the base engine, which can be carried over to a new generation with several upgrades. We should hear more about the new 2021 Mitsubishi Outlander sometime next year when Mitubishi is preparing to launch this new model in the US market.
