Mitsubishi’s biggest and most sophisticated vehicle for the North American market has finally arrived. Otherwise, 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 2023, with vehicles listed in alphabetical order.

Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross

After receiving a mid-cycle refresh last year, the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross gets some changes for 2023. In the United States, the brand’s S-AWC all-wheel drivetrain is now standard across all trim levels instead of being optional, while S-AWC was already standard on all trims in Canada. The lineup consists of ES, LE, SE and SEL in the U.S., while the ES, SE, SEL and GT variants are offered in Canada. There’s a new 18-inch alloy wheel design, the SE trims get a silver front bumper garnish, and the SEL gets body-color lower side trim. The Eclipse Cross is equipped with a 152-horsepower, turbocharged 1.5L inline-four and continuously variable automatic powertrain. A sporty Ralliart edition is on its way for the U.S. market in early 2023.

Mitsubishi Mirage

The only passenger car left in the brand’s lineup is the 2023 Mitsubishi Mirage. The city car, available in hatchback form in both the United States and Canada, while the Mirage G4 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. The U.S. lineup consists of ES, LE, Black Edition and SE in both hatchback and sedan configurations, and ES, SE and GT trims in Canada. No changes have been announced for the 2023 model year, but a sporty Ralliart edition is scheduled to appear in the U.S. in early 2023.

Mitsubishi Outlander

2022 Mitsubishi Outlander

The Mitsubishi Outlander gets small changes for 2023. A Black Edition package was made available during the 2022 model year in the U.S. market. In the latter, the lineup consists of ES, SE, Black Edition, SEL, SEL Black Edition and new range-topping 40th Anniversary Edition variants, with all but the top trim being available with standard front-wheel drive or optional S-AWC all-wheel drive. The SE gets power-folding mirrors, the SEL gets standard pull-up rear-door sunshades instead of being optional, and a black-painted roof can now be ordered. Meanwhile in Canada, the lineup is composed of ES, SE, LE, LE Premium, SEL, GT and GT Premium trims, all with standard S-AWC, while the two top trims can be ordered with a black-painted roof. Under the hood, the new 2022 Outlander gets a 181-horsepower, 2.5L inline-four engine mated to a continuously variable automatic transmission. A sporty Ralliart variant is scheduled to appear in the U.S. market sometime in 2023.

Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV

The big news for the brand this year is the arrival of the all-new Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV. Its powertrain consists of a 2.4L inline-four, two electric motors and a 20 kW battery pack, creating an S-AWC all-wheel drivetrain. Total output is pegged at 248 horsepower and 332 pound-feet of torque, and EV-only driving range is set at 61 kilometres or 38 miles. The U.S. lineup is composed of ES, SE and SEL trims, in addition to an eventual Ralliart edition, while the Canadian market gets ES, LE, SEL, GT and GT Premium variants.

Mitsubishi Outlander Sport/RVR

The Mitsubishi Outlander Sport/RVR rolls into 2023 with no significant changes, although in the United States, it’s now fitted as standard with the brand’s AWC all-wheel drivetrain. The Outlander Sport/RVR is equipped with a 148-horsepower, 2.0L inline-four engine or a 168-horsepower, 2.4L four. The U.S. lineup consists of S, ES, LE, SE and GT trims, and a soon-to-be-released Ralliart edition, while Canada gets ES and SE with either FWD or AWC, along with SEL, LE and GT trims all equipped with standard AWC.
