New Mitsubishi Outlander Sport Limited Edition Debut Takes Place Online Before Auto Show

Outlander Sport Limited Edition Debut

Although it was scheduled to get its big reveal at the Chicago Auto Show, Mitsubishi decided to sneak out the 2017 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport Limited Edition debut ahead of time to the delight of fans and followers.

 

The new Limited Edition model of the popular vehicle comes with a long list of new features, as well as updated styling, setting it apart from other Outlander Sport trim levels, including black wheels and mirror caps, for just $21,995.

 

Inside the vehicle, the Limited Edition model will have unique interior accents including red stitching, as well as an infotainment system that comes with both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility – so you can sync your smart phone right to your car.

 

If you’re interested in the new Limited Edition trim level, you won’t have to wait very long to get behind the wheel, as the model goes on sale this month. It’s hard to say how many units there will be of the Outlander Sport Limited Edition, so be sure to act fast.

Mitsubishi GT-PHEV Concept Debuts in Paris

After the success of the Outlander earlier this year, Mitsubishi announced plans to reevaluate their lineup, phasing out some of their less popular nameplates and refocusing their efforts on the crossover and SUV segment. It seems one of the first results of that new strategy will be making an appearance at the Paris Motor Show in the form of the new Mitsubishi GT-PHEV concept. This plug-in hybrid SUV offers a more aggressive, stylish look than your typical Mitsubishi nameplate, and its capabilities are strides ahead of most current members of the PHEV segment, too.

According to Mitsubishi representatives, the GT-PHEV will combine a traditional gasoline engine powering the front wheels with an electric motor powering the rear wheels. As a result, the SUV will be able to run up to 75 miles on electricity alone without ever tapping into the fuel tank, about double that of most plug-in hybrids currently in mass-market production. The SUV also features a sleeker, futuristic style, designed with thinner elements and a low-sloped windshield that ends in a sharp rear bumper.

We haven’t been given a peek yet at the interior of the Mitsubishi GT-PHEV concept, though that’s sure to change when the vehicle makes it appearance in Paris. We hear whisperings of burgundy leather that matches the SUV’s roof color, plus a spacious horizontal dashboard.

Mitsubishi Reveals the New 2017 Mirage G4 Sedan

2017 Mirage G4 Sedan

The new 2017 Mirage G4 is going to give you more for less!

 

Back on March 24th, Mitsubishi became the talk of the 2016 New York International Auto Show, when the Japanese automaker finally revealed its all-new 2017 Mirage G4 sedan.

The Mirage G4 is basically just the sedan version of the Mirage hatchback, and it even comes with the same 1.2-liter three-cylinder engine rated at 78 horsepower. Consumers will have the choice between a five-speed manual or continuously variable transmission (CVT).

While the Mirage hatchback’s trunk offers 17.2 cubic feet of storage space, that number drops to just 12.3-cubic feet for the G4 sedan, but what’s a loss of five cubic feet when you gain the attractive exterior styling of the sedan version? The 2017 Mirage G4 is also compatible with both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, which are premium features not typically found in a vehicle that carries a starting MSRP of $14,830.

Consumers should also be happy to hear the Mirage G4 sedan will be backed by Mitsubishi’s strong warranties, which includes a 10-year/100,000 mile powertrain warranty, a fully transferable 5-year/60,000 mile new vehicle limited warranty, 5-year/unlimited mile roadside assistance, and a 7-year/100,000 mile anti-corrosion perforation limited warranty.

“A few years ago we entered the subcompact segment with the Mirage hatchback and its popularity with consumers has grown every year with its combination of top fuel economy, attractive pricing and one of the industry’s best new car warranties. The new Mirage G4 repeats that value equation in a four-door sedan package,” said MMNA executive vice president, Don Swearingen. “The Mirage hatchback and now the Mirage G4 sedan will form a formidable one-two punch in the subcompact segment.”

The 2017 Mitsubishi Mirage G4 sedan is scheduled to on sale in the United States later this spring. Tell us what you think of Mitsubishi’s new compact sedan in the comment section below or visit us at Randall Mitsubishi in San Angelo, TX.

Mitsubishi Outlander

The new Mitsubishi Outlander is ready to hit the streets after its debut in New York.

The new Mitsubishi Outlander, which will reach the market as a 2016 model, is a great new offering in the SUV segment. The Japanese automaker’s popular crossover is looking hipper and more modern than ever now, thanks to some smart moves by Mitsubishi.

The 2016 Mitsubishi Outlander has been completely redesigned for the new model year. The Outlander’s new exterior features a curvier body, an attractive yet larger and more aggressive twin-bar grille, a healthy amount of chrome, and angular LED-accented headlights atop a bold black bumper. The 2016 Outlander was first showcased at this year’s 2015 New York International Auto Show, where its hot new looks wowed automotive journalists and visitors alike.

But the Outlander is more than just a pretty face. It also features an upscale interior full of beautiful materials and advanced technologies. It’s incredibly fun to drive—and just as fun to ride in, thanks to over 100 engineering and design improvements, which have led to better handling, body rigidity, and steering systems. Come see us at Randall Mitsubishi to learn more about the new Mitsubishi Outlander today.

Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution X Final Concept on its Way to Tokyo Auto Salon

Lancer Evolution X Final Concept

While we are sad that Mitsubishi is walking away from the Evo X, we’re glad they’re making a Lancer Evolution X Final Concept.

Mitsubishi has officially announced that the Tokyo Auto Salon later this month will house the premiere of the last model of the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution X Final Concept, a limited edition send-off model, which will have a mostly black exterior.

This model will be the last Evo X ever produced, and as such, there will only be a limited number of units available for purchase. These cars are sure to be a hot commodity on the collectors’ market as commemorative vehicles to the Evo X legacy.

The Final Concept vehicle will come standard with a five-speed manual though there will be a six-speed twin-clutch option. Additionally, the Final Concept model will have a 2.0-liter engine with a turbocharger, as well as new intake and exhaust systems.

These cars are likely to sell fast once they hit the market, which likely will not happen until much later this year. Until then, come visit us at Randall Mitsubishi to check out the Mitsubishi models we have in store.

The XR-PHEV Concept Design: Showing Off New Technology

Mitsubishi made quite a stir at the Los Angeles Auto Show this year by previewing the all new XR-PHEV Concept. Featuring incredibly bold styling, high performance, and a hybrid design, we here at Randall Mitsubishi can’t wait to see it in action.

Mitsubishi XR-PHEV Concept Design


Though there’s no word yet as to whether or not the concept model will hit the market anytime soon, it’s a great example of Mitsubishi’s innovative engineering. The XR-PHEV Concept design is built around Mitsubishi innovative Electric Vehicle (MiEV) technology, and features a 1.1-liter three-cylinder engine, paired with a lightweight 161-hp electric motor, according to Mitsubishi.

“We brought the Concept XR-PHEV to LA so that we could talk about our new design direction and how future products will be taking clues from its dynamic lines,” said MMNA Executive Vice President, Don Swearingen.

Perhaps one of the most unique aspects of the design is the advanced “connected car” technology. By utilizing next-generation information systems, the XR-PHEV is designed to be able to communicate with cars and objects around it. While still in the early stages, Mitsubishi hopes this technology will enable drivers to be safer than ever while on the road.
