What Will the Upcoming Mitsubishi Models Be Named?

With its star on the rise across the United States, Mitsubishi has steadily been introducing new models to the market with no plans to slow down. The automaker could come up with entirely new titles for these new cars, but there is also the chance it could reach back into the record book to reinstate some well-loved defunct nameplates.

So, what will the names of upcoming Mitsubishi models be? Here are a few possibilities:

Lancer

Originally released in 1973, the Mitsubishi Lancer was retired in 2017. The Lancer was responsible for many fond on-the-road memories for countless American drivers, so there’s a good chance we see that name gracing a Mitsubishi model in the future.

Starion

The Mistubishi Starion was a sporty tourer sold in the ’80s and early ’90s. It’s possible Mitsubishi will play on people’s nostalgia and love of the Neon Decade by reintroducing the Starion nameplate.

Raider

With whispers of a new Mitsubishi pickup making their way through the industry rumor mill, there’s a high probability that any new truck Mitsubishi puts out will again bear the strong name of “Raider,” which was a pickup model sold by Mitsubishi in the U.S. from 2005 to 2010.

New Design for the 2020 Outlander Sport

The Mitsubishi brand is always looking to the future. The compact Mitsubishi Outlander Sport will be one of the first models to wear the brand’s new design language. The design for the 2020 Outlander Sport features a bold new grille, a flatter hood, and new headlights.

Updates continue inside with improvements in the materials throughout the cabin. These include better seat upholstery, new climate control knobs that are easier to grip, a black headliner, and a new 8-inch touchscreen system.

Nate Berg, director of product planning for Mitsubishi Motors North America, said to CNET, “Design will be a key strategic thing moving forward for Mitsubishi Motors. We will continue to focus on refining our design.”

Many of the new design features we see in the Outlander Sport debuted in the Engelberg Tourer concept we saw at earlier car shows. This design language gives the Mitsubishi brand a more rugged persona.

Under the hood, the Outlander Sport remains the same with a standard 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine with 148 horsepower and 145 lb-ft of torque. Buyers will also be able to choose from a variety of available active safety features, including automatic high beams, blind-spot monitoring, and automatic emergency braking.

While we anticipate its release, test-drive the 2019 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport in Rahway, NJ, at Bell Mitsubishi.

Tips on How to Lower Your Car Insurance Payments

The ins and outs of what goes into calculating your car insurance payment can be like rocket science. However, you can lower your car insurance payments in a few key ways, but not a lot of people can comb through an insurance policy and pick out all the miniscule ways in choosing the perfect policy. If you just follow these tips you will be on your way to reducing your current rate.

Park in a garage

Utilizing a garage or a covered parking structure is an easy way to reduce your payment on a lot of plans.

Shop for safety

Insurance companies keep a close eye on vehicle safety ratings and know which safety features make a difference. Buying a car with modern safety features like rear cameras, lane keeping systems, and pedestrian alerts provide you a return in a lower bill.

Trim your coverage

Always drive a legally covered vehicle, but if you fully own your car, then you may consider dropping or reducing your collision coverage. Many plans include rental car insurance or roadside assistance packages, which are often optional.

Stop by Bell Mitsubishi, and ask our experts about other tips and tricks around your car insurance.
