2022.5 Mitsubishi Outlander: Standard specifications altered to improve supply chain woes
Certain features are set to be culled from select 22.5MY Mitsubishi Outlander variants due to parts shortages holding up production.
Mitsubishi is altering the standard specification on 22.5MY Outlander models due to ongoing supply delays, with certain features being dropped from lower-tier models to optimise production.
With material, manufacturing and logistics costs rising, prices are also up for higher-spec models. The Exceed sees a $500 increase and the Exceed Tourer is bumped up by $1,000 despite neither seeing any specification changes.
Base Outlander ES models now lose one-touch power windows for all but the driver, with all passenger windows previously offering automatic operation.
The LS model loses its power-operated tailgate, which is now replaced by a manual tailgate instead. The Aspire model and above still feature the power tailgate, though.
The mid-spec Aspire sees one of the most disappointing omissions, with its 12.3-inch fully-digital instrument cluster now replaced with the semi-digital cluster from the ES and LS, which features traditional dials with a still-sizeable 7.0-inch display between them.
Despite these equipment removals, Mitsubishi still boasts that the Outlander remains the best-equipped vehicle it has ever sold in Australia.
No additional equipment is added to offset the removals this mid-year update brings, and the Outlander's sole 2.5-litre engine option remains unchanged.
