The easiest way to describe the 2022 model year of the Mitsubishi Outlander is that it’s “new.” The redesign gives new life to the classic Mitsubishi name, and just in time to integrate a long list of new technologies. Safety, entertainment, and convenience technology abound, even on the lowest trim of the 2022 Mitsubishi Outlander.
Each trim level of the 2022 Mitsubishi Outlander features Super All-Wheel Control (S-AWC), making it one of the compact crossovers on the market to cut straight to the point instead of front- or rear-wheel-drive models. There are 7 trim levels, and since they are almost all mechanically identical, the differences between each come down to safety, entertainment, and convenience features. Each trim is listed below with a pair of characteristic feature highlights to help you gauge which is closest to your needs.
|ES S-AWC||Blind Spot Warning||Drive Mode Selector (ECO/NORMAL/SNOW/GRAVEL/TARMAC/MUD)|
|SE S-AWC||Power Hands-Free Liftgate||Heated Steering Wheel|
|LE S-AWC||Adaptive Cruise Control||Connected Car Services and Embedded Navigation|
|LE S-AWC Premium||6-Way Power Driver’s Seat||Faux-Suede Appointed Seats|
|SEL S-AWC||Driver Seat with Memory Function||12.3-Inch Instrument Cluster|
|GT S-AWC||10.8-Inch Head-Up Display||Active Blind Spot Assist|
|GT S-AWC Premium||8-Way Power Driver’s Seat||Rear Door Pull-Up Sunshade|
These 7 trims each exemplify different values, but the trims we think are likely to become the most popular are the LE S-AWC and the GT S-AWC trims. The lower trims will probably gain plenty of followers as drivers search for an inexpensive way to get into a new compact crossover.
Because everything about the 2022 Mitsubishi Outlander is new, the model may be able to attract those who have never considered a Mitsubishi before. For these shoppers, a great place to start researching is with the LE S-AWC Premium, as it will have many of the safety and technology features people are used to seeing from the competition.
