A crossover Mitsubishi Outlander of the fourth generation should debut this year. And he will get the motors Nissan – a first for Mitsubishi models. This publication reports Automotive News, citing Nikkei. What the engines can in principle be discussed will demonstrate related SUV Nissan Rogue/X-Trail new generation. (All these machines use a modular platform CMF CD Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi.)
The Outlander Shine not only aggregates, known for “x-tralu” now (such as diesel 1.7 dCi 150 HP and 340 Nm), but also those that were projected for the fellow Rogue/X-Trail new generation. It is an upgraded atmospheric “Quartet” 2.5 PR25DD e-VTC (electromagnetic valve timing control) with direct injection, developing Altime 191 HP and 244 Nm. And still the possibility of engine with variable compression ratio, 2.0 KR20DDET VC-Turbo (251 HP, 370 Nm for Altima or 272 HP and 380 Nm on the Infiniti QX50). Both engines are combined with a CVT.
Rechargeable from the wall outlet hybrid Outlander PHEV will not disappear, but rather will be upgraded. Now this machine has a 135-horsepower aspirated 2.4, which help electric motors (on front 82 HP and 95 HP at the rear). Battery is 13.8 kWh enables you to go 65 miles without running the engine. It is likely that this Outlander will share with the twins Rogue/X-Trail. After all, Mitsubishi within the new division of labor in the Alliance is responsible for the development of hybrid systems.
However, the Nikkei says that the first system type Plug-in will get their youngest brother Sport Nissan Rogue/Qashqai new generation, which should appear this autumn. By the way, according to Auto Express, the Qashqai will get rid of diesels. They will be replaced by different hybrid system. Just one from Mitsubishi and the second sequential diagram, Nissan ePower.
