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:
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.
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.
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.
