You know Mitsubishi is just brimming with confidence about its new Outlander when the very first line of its press release says the SUV is "much more than a traditional mid-cycle design 'refreshing' that consists of minor aesthetic updates". This should go well…

So what's new? The exterior! It's got a new grille that Mitsu calls its "Dynamic Shield", LED headlights on its top-of-the-line GT model, along with LED taillights and 18-inch wheels on every Outlander it makes.

The interior gets "a fresh design update" with better seats, a folding third row, Mitsubishi's new Multi Communication System, and a rearview mirror with its OnStar-esque Homelink system.

Drivetrains come in two flavors: a 166-HP 2.4-liter four-cylinder on the ES, SE, and SEL models or a 3.0-liter V6 with 224 HP and 215 lb-ft of torque on the GT. However, Mitsubishi doesn't seem to have sorted out the powertrain options, only saying that the four-pot model is available in either front-wheel drive or with its S-AWC all-wheel-drive system, and barely mentioning the six.

But hey, whatever. It's Mitsubishi. They make stuff.
