With Amazon now the go-to platform for people ordering and having delivered goods to their doors, it should not be a surprise that Mitsubishi Motors would use the world’s premier online consumer platform to debut its all-new Mitsubishi 2022 Outlander.
The first-ever vehicle to be launched on Amazon Live, the new 2022 Outlander marks a new direction for this fourth-generation SUV to reach North American shores in April of this year. The Outlander was launched in Canada in 2002, and continues to be one of Mitsubishi Motors’ best selling vehicles. Globally, the Outlander has sold some 2.6 million units.
The new 2022 Outlander will feature a next-generation Dynamic Shield with daytime running lights and turn signals positioned in the upper area so as to improve their visibility to oncoming vehicles. The headlights will be positioned below and angled to throw more light onto the road. Drivers will have a choice of Diamond Series paints, such as Red, White and Black. Black Diamond is a new colour that consists of three coats of which a layer containing glass is added to give the 2022 Outlander a jet-black look. Also available are five basic colours for a total selection of eight body colours.
A new 2.5-litre engine – producing 181 hp at 6,000 r.p.m., and 181 lb-ft of torque – comes with an 8-speed sport mode CVT and an electronically-controlled 4WD and S-AWC (Super-All Wheel Control) system. A six-drive mode selector placed in the centre console, gives drivers the power, speed and control to handle all road conditions. The Brake AYC (Active Yaw Control) will provide front and rear wheel distributed control and the Outlander’s sensors will be able to detect the steering angle, yaw rate, driving torque, brake pressure, wheel speed to correctly identify driver operation and vehicle status, thereby giving greater control and stability to the Outlander. MI-PILOT Assist integrates Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) and Lane Keep Assist (LKA) adds to the increased driving comfort and safety.
Some of the interior enhancements include a linear instrument panel with the upper part covered in soft padding wrapped in leather. Interior colour variations of genuine leather seats of light grey and black are available. Seat heaters, three-zone automatic climate control, and rear door sunshades are also available.
A 12.3-inch full digital driver display equipped with full-color TFT shows can be customized by the driver and a 7-inch multi-information display can show simple arrow navigation in the central information display. An available large 9-inch screen is used for the centre display and is equipped with Smartphone-link Display Audio navigation system. For the first time, Mitsubishi has provided a 10.8-inch full-colour Head-Up Display (HUD) that can be turned on or off.
Android Auto and Apple CarPlay are supported and the Outlander comes with a standard 10-speaker sound system, and a BOSE premium sound system is available for the higher trim levels.
The 2022 Outlander offers three-row, seven seats, that can be flexibly arranged. The second-row seats have a sliding and reclining function, as well as a 40:20:40 split division. The centre console tray also has a wireless phone charging function (15W) and USB charging ports Types C and A are at the ready, on the front and back of the centre console.
