2021 Mitsubishi Model Year Changes


Eclipse Cross

No 2021 model. With a restyle but no mechanical changes, the Eclipse Cross comes back for the 2022 model year after skipping 2021.


2021 Mirage Carbonite Edition from MMS retail website

Forward Collision Mitigation is new and standard on all models; it detects impending frontal collisions, warns the driver, and slams on the brakes if a crash is imminent. Lane Departure warning, also new, is standard on SE.

The Mirage GT is gone from the hatchback, but both sedan and hatchback get new Carbonite Editions. Lowered in the front by a few millimeters, with alloy rims, the biggest addition is grey ground effects and trim with red pinstripes.

SE models now have automatic high beam headlights. A maplight is new standard equipment. Automatic climate control (single zone), Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are now standard on all models.


The Outlander is completely new... for 2022. It also skips the 2021 model year.

Outlander PHEV

2019 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV

The Outlander PHEV gets substantial battery and powerplant upgrades for 2021. The electric motor's output is increased by 17% and the internal combustion engine is more powerful, resulting in a 31-horsepower increase in combined output. The all-electric range is increased by two miles, now 24 miles on a full charge, due to a larger battery pack.

A new "LE" trim level nestles in between entry SEL and top GT models. The LE features a blacked out grille and bumpers and a standard power sunroof.

Outlander Sport

The "SP" trim level has been renamed "LE" once again. The two-wheel drive GT is no longer offered; 4WD is standard on the GT, now.

Forward collision warning, Lane Departure Warning, automatic emergency braking, automatic dimming rearview mirror, rain-sensing front wipers, foglights, automatic on/off headlights and automatic high beams are now standard on all models. The LE now has standard voice control.
