The Airtrek Is The Mitsubishi’s First-Ever EV With Up To 323 Miles Of Range

Mitsubishi has finally stepped into the EV segment, and it’s offering isn’t that bad at all

Mitsubishi is one of the pioneers of the plug-in hybrid SUV, yet they’re also one of the last companies to release a full electric vehicle (EV). Say hello to the Mitsubishi Airtrek, which just made its global debut at the 2021 Guangzhou Auto Show.

The Sheriff is back at the Drag Strip, challenging an unlikely contender

The Sheriff is back at the Drag Strip, challenging an unlikely contender

In a bizzare face-off, the Sheriff takes on a Qaud-Bike at the Bandimere Speedway

Sometimes, the strangest of vehicles show up at the drag strip to see how they fare in a ¼ mile run. This time around, the Wheels YouTube Channel put out a video of a Quad bike taking on the local Jefferson County Sheriff’s Ford Explorer Police car, at the Bandimere Speedway in Morrisson, Colorado. But it didn’t stop there as the Quad bike also went up against a Mitsubishi EVO X and another Quad. Let’s see how things pan out.

2021 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV - Driven

2021 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV - Driven

Mitsubishi is trying to compete in a cutthroat segment with a seriously dated vehicle

Mitsubishi revealed the fourth-generation Outlander back in February 2021 with a lot of styling influenced by the Engelberg Concept, but if you’re hoping to get all that new goodness in an Outlander PHEV, you’re out of luck. Why? Well, because while the rest of the Outlander lineup transitioned into a new generation, here we have the forgotten Outlander PHEV that’s still stuck in the past, flaunting styling and tech that’s beyond dated. So, is it still worth it to buy an Outlander PHEV in 2021 or should you look for alternatives? Our tester had a final price of $39,835 and its generation went into production in 2012, so you should probably read on if you really want the answer to that question.

1997 Mitsubishi Pajero Evolution - An Unappreciated Dakar Raider

1997 Mitsubishi Pajero Evolution - An Unappreciated Dakar Raider

The Mitsubishi Pajero Evolution is a street-legal Dakar raider that’s relatively affordable

It’s no secret that Mitsubishi is a pale shadow of its former self. Having numerous successes in rallying, the brand has switched to making bland, cheaply-made crossovers and compact cars. Although Mitsubishi currently finds itself in a state of survival (they put the Eclipse name on a crossover), things were quite different in the 1990s. Not long ago, we talked about the 2006 Mitsubishi Eclipse Ralliart, which was essentially the two-door “EVO” everyone wanted but never got. But long before it, there was this – the short-wheelbase-only Mitsubishi Pajero Evolution. And there’s a lot to say about it.

2022 Mitsubishi Outlander

2022 Mitsubishi Outlander

A well-loaded SUV with smart pricing but a lackluster engine and transmission

Mitsubishi revealed the 2022 Outlander which marks its fourth-generation in the U.S. It comes with a whole lot of changes on the outside and under the skin. The flagship vehicle rides on a new platform, is powered by a new engine, and is redesigned on the outside and inside. While there is only one engine and transmission option, you can have it with either a two-wheel-drive or a four-wheel-drive layout. The 2022 Outlander will arrive at the dealerships in April 2021.

This Mitsubishi Galant Is The Epitome of Sleeper Cars

This Mitsubishi Galant Is The Epitome of Sleeper Cars

This Mitsubishi Galant may look plain, but it’s actually an 800-horsepower monster

Owning a supercar is cool and all, but driving a really powerful sleeper can be just as satisfying if you’re not into wild looks. Take this Mitsubishi Galant for instance. It looks like a really mundane four-door sedan from the early 1990s, but it’s actually a full-blown supercar under the hood. With an output of around 800 horsepower, it can outgun any production sedan available right now. And their drivers won’t even know what hit them.

Someone Finally Talked Some Sense Into Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross' Designers

Someone Finally Talked Some Sense Into Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross’ Designers

The 2021 Eclipse Cross’ mid-life design is still funky, but better

Meet the restyled 2020 Eclipse Cross, Mitsubishi’s attempt to make amends for its confusingly-styled crossover that also wears a legendary moniker of a car that is no more.

The Japanese carmaker says it’s been tweaking a lot of stuff inside and out, so let’s see what does that mean exactly.

Doug DeMuro's Latest Video Will Make You Miss the Mitsubishi Lancer Evo

Doug DeMuro’s Latest Video Will Make You Miss the Mitsubishi Lancer Evo

Watch this and try not to cry knowing the Lancer Evo is gone

In a way, we can say that the memory of the Lancer Evo is still clean, because Mitsubishi didn’t use the name on a crossover…yet. But with the Eclipse Cross out and about, God knows what might be in store for the Lancer and the Evo nameplate.

Now, if we made you angry, we’re sorry. Here, there’s a 23-minute video of Doug DeMuro dissecting the Lance Evo. It should make you feel better.

2020 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV - Driven

2020 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV - Driven

Everything about the Tesla Model Y looks like the car of the future. From its pod shape, to its silent but explosive acceleration, to its all-encompassing infotainment screen with no physical buttons, the electric-car maker’s new entry-level crossover is more about sensibly reducing gasoline usage. It gives you a peek into the decades to come, and it gives you a rollicking good time while you do it. It’s not just an electric car, but a special vehicle that triggers a powerful emotional response. This is one way to electrify an SUV.

Then there’s Mitsubishi’s way: the 2020 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport PHEV. All-electric cars eventually run out of charge, even long-range models like Teslas. So Mitsubishi made a plug-in hybrid whose gasoline engine can help out when you use up the battery or need more power. To keep costs down, the battery isn’t huge and the motors aren’t wildly powerful. And Mitsubishi already makes many gas-powered crossovers, so rather than wasting resources to develop a new one, it retrofitted electric components into its flagship model, the compact Outlander.

The result is a left-brain approach to the segment — the Outlander PHEV makes perfect sense, but it’s an improved present rather than the future. At best, you’ll feel something between mildly impressed and grudgingly accepting. It’s hard to imagine falling in love.

2021 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross

2021 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross

Mitsubishi’s compact crossover wants you to notice it

The Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross has long been one of the most underrated compact crossovers in the market. It’s not going to win any "best-of" awards anytime soon, but the crossover can hold its own, as long as people notice it. Perhaps the arrival of the new Eclipse Cross will help the crossover earn more credibility than it has received.

This latest batch of spy photos of the model heavily wrapped in camouflage gives us an idea of what to expect visually from the Eclipse Cross. But that’s the extent of it, at least for now. More details should arrive as we get closer to the updated Eclipse Cross’ launch sometime at the end of the year. The new Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross will be badged as a 2021 model.

2019 Mitsubishi L200 Series 6

2019 Mitsubishi L200 Series 6

The same-old, reliable Japanese workhorse in new skin

When you’re in the market for a new car, a Mitsubishi vehicle is not generally your first choice. However, it does not mean that the Japanese brand is not doing well here in the States. In fact, Mitsubishi actually outsold Land Rover, Mini, and Volvo in 2018. Maybe it is some kind of sorcery, or Mitsubishi has sprayed some sort of invisible ink, we don’t know, but the Japanese giant has managed to move 118,074 cars in 2018 - all of it without socializing at auto-show gatherings or sponsoring many events. But, this is not the case in the U.K. The company is doing pretty well there and even sells a pickup truck called the L200. Mitsubishi has been producing the L200 pickup truck since 1978; under different monikers, though. The company has launched the sixth-generation now and it looks like a well-rounded package. Will the L200 Series 6 be able to hold its “fort(e)” in the highly competitive market?

2020 Mitsubishi ASX

2020 Mitsubishi ASX

10-year old crossover is back for another round

The current-generation Mitsubishi ASX keeps on chugging along. First introduced in 2010, Mitsubishi’s never-say-die crossover is back for another go at a segment that, on the surface, has passed it by a long time ago. But give credit to Mitsubishi. As dated as the ASX is — it received a facelift in 2015 — Mitsubishi believes that it can still print money, and as long as that’s the case, who are we to argue? And so, the 2020 ASX has arrived with another extensive facelift that, at the very least, gives the crossover a fighting chance at staying relevant in a market that has become increasingly competitive in recent years. It’s not just about staying relevant, though. Mitsubishi needs the 2020 ASX to hold the fort until the automaker launches its wave of new models under the Nissan-Renault banner. Can the 10-year old ASX do it? It better.

The Redesigned 2020 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport is Here to Cosplay As The Eclipse Cross

The Redesigned 2020 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport is Here to Cosplay As The Eclipse Cross

With Four Redesigns, Is The Outlander Sport The Most Redesigned Mass-produced Crossover?

Don’t get confused by the ASX nameplate on this newly released 2020 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport crossover. The ASX is a name stashed on the back of the European Outlander Sport, and as the new one will be released at the 2019 Geneva International Motor Show, it is only logical. What seems less logical is yet another facelift for the Outlander Sport. The car has been around since February 2010, and for the past nine years, it received exactly three facelifts (this being fourth). This means that the third generation of the Outlander Sport has exactly five different looks. While previous redesigns haven’t been, what one would call...ahem... exhaustive, the new redesign is. The new 2020 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport received a full visual makeover with the styling cues reminiscent of all new Mitsubishi cars. So, it looks a lot like the Eclipse Cross then.
