Mitsubishi 2022 Lineup: Models And Changes Overview

New-generation Outlander PHEV on the way, and that’s about it.

  • An all-new generation of the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV will soon debut.

  • Redesigned Outlander and refreshed Eclipse Cross went on sale in 2021.

  • No changes for Mirage and RVR/Outlander Sport.

Business has picked up at Mitsubishi during the past year, now that its flagship North American vehicle has been redesigned. The company is banking its future on electrified crossovers, which should soon start to appear in our market.

In the meantime, customers get a largely unchanged vehicle lineup for the new model year, composed of utility vehicles and a single passenger car. Here’s what to expect from the Mitsubishi brand in 2022.

The new-generation Mitsubishi Outlander has been on sale since the spring of 2021, and sales increased during the calendar year. It’s available in many trim levels with incremental levels of features, in addition to five- and seven-passenger seating layouts. Under the hood, the new 2022 Outlander gets a 2.5L inline-four engine mated to a continuously variable automatic transmission, along with a choice of front- and all-wheel drivetrains in the United States, while AWD is standard in Canada.

Meanwhile, the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV soldiers on in previous-generation form until it obtains the regular Outlander’s redesign. For now, it retains a 2.4L engine, a pair of electric motors and an all-wheel drivetrain for an EV-only driving range of 24 miles or 39 kilometres. The all-new 2023 Outlander PHEV will boast more power, better range and improved driving dynamics, in addition to standard three-row seating.

2022 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross

The refreshed 2022 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross went on sale in February 2021. It boasts new front- and rear-end styling in addition to new interior trim and a revised infotainment system. The Eclipse Cross will keep its 152-horsepower, turbocharged 1.5L inline-four and continuously variable automatic powertrain, matched to a front-wheel drivetrain as standard in the U.S., while AWD is optional—but standard in Canada.

There are rumours currently swirling around that an all-new, fully electric performance crossover would be revealed sometime in 2021, but that didn’t happen. What the company did unveil, however, is the Mitsubishi Vision Ralliart Concept at the 2022 Tokyo Auto Salon earlier this month, which is essentially an Outlander with a much sportier appearance.

The Mitsubishi Outlander Sport/RVR rolls into 2022 with no significant changes. It’s equipped with a 148-horsepower, 2.0L inline-four engine or a 168-horsepower, 2.4L four, matched to a front- or all-wheel drivetrain.

2021 Mitsubishi Mirage

The only passenger car left in the brand’s lineup is the 2022 Mitsubishi Mirage, which received enhancements for the 2021 model year. The city car, available in hatchback form in both the United States and Canada, while the sedan is now limited to the U.S. market, is equipped with a 1.2L inline-three engine that develops 78 horsepower and 74 pound-feet of torque, matched to a five-speed manual transmission or a continuously variable automatic. No changes have been announced for the 2022 model year.
