The Mitsubishi Outlander is a competent SUV that is still trying to erase the stigma of the company’s post-Evo doldrums. To give shoppers a reason to browse, Mitsubishi just introduced a new product for 2022 Outlander Black Edition, a decorative package that, although largely cosmetic, adds a hint of sinister flair to its unique sheet metal.
The Black Edition builds on top of the Outlander SE and can be ordered with powertrain, front-wheel drive or Mitsubishi’s Super All-Wheel Control all-wheel drive system. From there, it adds popular features like dual-zone climate control and a panoramic roof. Power comes from a standard 2.5-liter inline 4-cylinder engine mated to a continuously variable transmission.
Of course, the Black Edition’s appeal is the black trim that sets it apart from other Outlanders. It is therefore treated with black 20-inch wheels that look a bit better than the standard dual-finished rollers. Black trim covers the side mirrors and decorates the door handles. And wiser in the cabin, the header and pillars have now been finished in black.
Aside from the rims, these are barely noticeable changes. The main visual difference comes in the front and rear bumper areas, which give the car a realistic vibe. Oh, and the name Outlander was now written in black along the aisle.
The Outlander Black Edition starts at $29,995, which is a decent price considering items like a panoramic roof and dual-zone climate control aren’t even standard on the pricier SEL. than. For certain buyers, the Black Edition will be at the top of the list in terms of options and features.
Mitsubishi joins many other car companies that already produce Black Edition versions of their vehicles. It may seem a bit frivolous, but if it brings in a few more customers, especially with an optional combination, it gets the job done.
