Mitsubishi not planning Ford Ranger Raptor rival

Mitsubishi says it has no plans to introduce a rival to the Ford Ranger Raptor ute – or mount a counterattack with a high-powered turbo diesel V6 even though it has access to one thanks to the recent alliance with Nissan-Renault. Ford and Volkswagen are expected to have turbo-diesel V6 power as part of their next generation pickups due within a few years from now, and Toyota is on record as saying it wants to make up for the HiLux’s power deficit...

Mitsubishi to launch Renault-sourced van mid-2020

Mitsubishi will rejoin the commercial van market by the middle of next year after a six-year absence with a vehicle based on the Renault Trafic – however the company claims it won’t compete with its French joint venture partner on price. The opportunity for a van to return to Mitsubishi showrooms came about after the Japanese brand became part of the Renault-Nissan Alliance in 2017...

Mitsubishi boss pours cold water on next-generation Evolution

Mitsubishi carved its reputation as a manufacturer of performance cars with the rally-bred Evolution Lancer sedans built from 1992 to 2016 – but such niche models have been difficult to justify in the modern automotive world as buyer tastes shift to SUVs...

Mitsubishi ASX to get 2.4-litre petrol engine

The Mitsubishi ASX will soon be available with a 2.4-litre petrol engine, bringing the option of more power to Australia’s biggest-selling small SUV. It will coincide with the October arrival of a major facelift for the Mitsubishi ASX – which adopts the company’s “shield” grille – the latest in a number of overhauls since the model went on sale in 2010...

Mitsubishi Pajero future in doubt, likely to be replaced by seven-seat soft-roader

It’s no secret the Mitsubishi Pajero’s days are numbered, given it's been gradually withdrawn from sale in various countries around the world – including most recently its home market in Japan where the ‘Final Edition’ has been released...

Mitsubishi Triton to get hybrid power, precede Nissan Navara development

The next generation Mitsubishi Triton ute – due two to three years from now – will have the option of hybrid power for the first time. However, the company is yet to decide if it will be a plug-in hybrid, and whether it will pair its electric tech with a petrol or diesel engine – or both...

Mitsubishi to sell only SUVs, utes and vans in Australia

Australia’s seismic shift away from passenger cars – and towards SUVs and utes, not unlike North America – is about to claim its first casualty. Japanese company Mitsubishi – the fourth most popular brand behind Toyota, Mazda and Hyundai – will not replace its Mirage and Lancer small cars once they sell out in local showrooms...

2017-18 Mitsubishi Pajero recalled

Mitsubishi Australia has recalled the 2017-18 Pajero, over concerns about the welding strength on the front right-hand lower control arm. According to the company, 'inadequate welding strength' on the lower control arm could make it fail at one of the weld joints. If the lower control arm fails, the steering mightn't operate correctly, increasing the risk of injury or accident for both the driver and other road users...

2020 Mitsubishi Outlander pricing and specs

Mitsubishi has added autonomous emergency braking to its entire automatic Outlander range, as part of a minor refresh for 2020. The potentially life-saving technology is now standard on the entry-level ES 2.4L, meaning only the five-speed manual price-leader is without what Mitsubishi has dubbed 'forward collision mitigation with pedestrian detection'...
