Mitsubishi announced last week that the 2015 Outlander Sport, one of its most popular crossovers, will have a new engine option: that of a 2.4-liter in-line four-cylinder engine that produces up to 168 horsepower.

This engine is the same model that’s currently available in Mitsubishi’s Lancer sedan, so although the automaker hasn’t released the official specs on the engine for the Outlander, we can assume that it will likely work the same way.

The new engine will be available for two 2015 Outlander Spot models, the ES and GT, which are being priced at $22,145 and $24,445 respectively. Not a bad price at all for these top-of-the-line crossovers, a staple in Mitsubishi’s catalog.

Plus, various luxury packages are available for the new models, including the GT Premium Package and the GT Touring Package, in addition to the new Outlander engine option.
