Mitsubishi Motors North America, Inc. (MMNA) continues to make its presence known in the automotive industry with the unveiling of its 2024 model year lineup. This year is poised to be one of Mitsubishi’s most impactful, marked by new features, special editions, and goodbye waves to an old favorite. One of the most intriguing additions across the board is the two-year limited maintenance package for every 2024 model. With everything from industry-leading warranties to novel Platinum Editions, let’s dive into the details of what each Mitsubishi model is bringing to the market.
The Crown Jewel: 2024 Outlander and Outlander Plug-in Hybrid
Starting with the flagship, the 2024 Outlander and its Plug-in Hybrid variant continue to break new ground. Both editions now offer a Platinum Edition, draped in a mesmerizing Black Diamond paint paired with an Alloy Silver roof. The Outlander series is already heralded for its top-notch safety features and award-winning design, and it just keeps getting better.
Outlander’s All-Black Magic: SEL Black Edition
For those who like their Outlanders with a bit more edge, the SEL Black Edition offers a blacked-out exterior and interior trim. This includes a black dynamic shield, window trim, roof rails, and sumptuous semi-aniline leather seating. Previously only available for the regular Outlander, this trim now also extends to the Plug-in Hybrid version.
Compact Yet Mighty: 2024 Eclipse Cross
Next in the lineup, the 2024 Eclipse Cross comes with a slew of advancements like a hands-free electronic tailgate and Adaptive Cruise Control as standard features. Coupled with Mitsubishi’s signature motorsport-derived All-Wheel Control (AWC), this compact SUV offers a high degree of versatility and confidence on the road. Keep an eye out for the announcement of a Special Edition with rugged off-road-inspired styling.
Where Adventure Awaits: 2024 Outlander Sport
The Outlander Sport has long been a fan favorite, and 2024 promises new reasons to love it. Most notably, Mitsubishi is paying homage to its off-road heritage by introducing a Trail Edition. This rugged trim features black hood graphics, TRAIL front and rear effects, mud flaps, and all-weather floor mats, among other additions. The GT trim will also be rebranded as the SEL trim.
The Final Bow: 2024 Mirage and Mirage G4
This is the curtain call—the final act for the Mirage, a vehicle celebrated for its unparalleled fuel efficiency and budget-friendly nature. With a base price that slips in under $18,000, the Mirage has truly carved out a unique niche for itself in the automotive world. But don’t think it’s exiting the stage without leaving a lasting impression. The 2024 Mirage and its sibling, the Mirage G4, are setting the scene for a memorable farewell by introducing thoughtful upgrades. These include convenient automatic headlights, innovative rain-sensing wipers, and a comfortable driver seat armrest in the LE trims. To add a dash of sartorial flair to its goodbye, the Mirage also rolls out two new dynamic color options: Graphite Gray and Jet Black, taking the place of the outgoing Mercury Gray and Mystic Black.
Mitsubishi Warranty and Maintenance
Every 2024 Mitsubishi comes with a 10-year/100,000-mile powertrain warranty, a five-year/60,000-mile limited warranty, and two years of limited maintenance. Mitsubishi’s top-notch customer service ensures you’re well-covered, from purchase to pavement.
Conclusion: A Year of Evolution and Emotion
Mitsubishi’s 2024 lineup masterfully blends cutting-edge innovation, opulent luxury, and heartfelt nostalgia. With the Outlander’s transformative upgrades and the bold, adventurous trims of Outlander Sport and Eclipse Cross, Mitsubishi reaffirms its commitment to excellence, value, and technological prowess. As we bid a fond farewell to the plebian Mirage, anticipation builds for Mitsubishi’s next chapter.
