Mitsubishi is committing to five new vehicle reveals in the next year.

There have been concerns raised that Mitsubishi is no longer as committed to the U.S. market as it has been in the past. With a new headquarters in Franklin, Tennessee and news today of five new product launches planned in the next year, it appears that concern was a bit overblown.

Between today and the second quarter of 2021, Mitsubishi will launch three “considerably redesigned” vehicles, one fresh variant, and one ground-up redesigned model.

Here’s what to expect, by date.

The Mitsubishi Outlander Sport was refreshed for the 2020 model year. It will carryover for the 2021 model year with additional standard equipment improvements. It is the company’s best-selling model in North America.

Every Mitsubishi vehicle will receive standard Forward Collision Mitigation with Pedestrian Detection active safety features in the new year as well.

The updated internal combustion engine has increased displacement and greater horsepower, and the larger and more refined electric drive system offers more all-electric range and speed of operation.

The 2020 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV (shown above) is powered by a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that is paired with two electric motors to produce 197 horsepower. All-wheel drive is standard. It can go 22 miles on just electricity and earns a 74 MPGe rating.

The refreshed 2021 Mitsubishi Mirage and Mirage G4 will go on sale in the first quarter of 2021. They will have undergone an “extensive exterior redesign” and will be the U.S.’s most fuel efficient non-hybrid gasoline-fueled vehicle. Mitsubishi promises that the model will become a “more compelling value” with these changes because it will be “better equipped, with bold styling and standard safety equipment putting it into a new level of consideration.

In the first six months of 2020, Mitsubishi sold around 8,500 new Mirages in the U.S.
