The Mitsubishi Outlander is a midsize crossover that competes with the Honda Passport, Ford Edge and Jeep Grand Cherokee.
Launched in 2013, the Outlander has received several periodic updates. In 2015, a new front-end design changed the Outlander’s look significantly. For the 2019 model year, Mitsubishi has updated the exterior again with new headlights, a new upper/lower grille and new wheels. A separate plug-in hybrid Outlander became available in the United States for the first time in 2018, after having been sold successfully elsewhere for several years.
