Mitsubishi's flagship SUV, the Outlander, is all-new for 2022, entering its long-awaited fourth generation as one of the most compelling models in its class. The 2022 Mitsubishi Outlander introduces a new, bolder aesthetic, a host of upgraded amenities, and a newly developed platform powertrain. It also includes new advanced driver-assistance technologies, including many as standard equipment. In this blog, we'll provide a quick overview of the performance and driver aids of this exciting new addition to the Mitsubishi lineup.

2022 Mitsubishi Outlander: Improved Performance, Same Great Efficiency

Under the hood, the 2022 Mitsubishi Outlander finds its motivation in a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine generating 181 horsepower and 181 pound-feet of torque. It's an appreciable power boost over the previous generation's 2.4-liter engine, increasing output by 15 hp and 19 lb-ft, respectively. Sending power to the front wheels is a new continuously variable transmission, which features an 8-speed sport mode for enhanced responsiveness and a sportier driving experience. And for Newark drivers seeking improved handling and control in inclement conditions, Mitsubishi's Super All-Wheel Control 2 (S-AWC) is available as an option for all trim levels.

And despite the increase in performance, the 2022 Mitsubishi Outlander still offers solid fuel economy, achieving EPA-estimated mpg ratings of 25 city, 30 highway, and 27 combined. And even with all-wheel-drive, Outlander's efficiency holds strong, with EPA-estimated ratings of 24 city, 29, highway, and 26 combined.

2022 Mitsubishi Driver-Assistance Technologies

When it comes to ensuring a safe arrival at your destination, while there's never a substitute for staying alert behind the wheel, it's always good to have some help. And the all-new Mitsubishi Outlander certainly delivers, offering a full suite of advanced driver aids to enhance driver awareness and improve hazard detection and avoidance. And since your family's safety isn't just optional, Mitsubishi includes many of these systems as standard equipment on all models. Available driver aids include:

  • Forward Collision Mitigation (Standard)
  • Blind Spot Warning with Lane Change Assist (Standard)
  • Rear Cross-Traffic Alert (Standard)

  • MI-PILOT Assist (SE and Higher)
  • Adaptive Cruise Control with Traffic Jam Assist (SE and Higher)
  • Lane Keep Assist (SE and Higher)

2022 Mitsubishi Outlander: All-New MI-PILOT Assist

New for 2022, Mitsubishi's MI-PILOT Assist semi-autonomous driving system comes standard on all but the base trim of the all-new Outlander. Leveraging adaptive cruise control and lane-keeping technologies, MI-PILOT Assist can help mitigate the stress and fatigue of a long road trip or tedious commute by automatically maintaining a safe distance from leading vehicles and keeping the Outlander centered in its lane. And thanks to its Traffic Jam Assist features, the MI-PILOT Assist can bring the Outlander to a complete stop for up to 30-seconds before getting back up to speed with the flow of traffic.
