We recently took our first look at the Mitsubishi Outlander 2022 and it is a monumental head start compared to the vehicle it replaces. Not to belittle the new Outlander, but the old and uncompetitive earlier Outlander wasn’t a standout segment anyway. The new one seems to be a real competitor, with interesting design and adequate hardware to compete against its compact SUV competitors. And now we know what price the small SUV will bear when it is sold.
Remember, the Outlander was co-developed with the 2021 Nissan Rogue on an enterprise basis. The two SUVs have identical engines (for the time being) and run on the same platform, although the specifics – the available all-wheel drive systems, the actual set-up of the ride and the handling – are unique for each model. And the characteristics between the two will certainly vary. But the pricing is very, very tight. The 2021 Nissan Rogue is only $ 90 more expensive than the 2022 Outlander when comparing the base models of both SUVs.
The most expensive list price for a 2022 Mitsubishi Outlander is the SEL with Touring package, which is $ 37,640. All-wheel drive costs $ 1,800 for all fairings.
We also have fuel economy estimates for the new 2.5 liter engine. FWD models achieve 24 mpg in the city and 31 highway, while AWD models return 24/30.
