The unveil will happen in The Mitsubishi booth on April 2 among much fanfare. The new Outlander will be presenting the new design language  that the brand will be following.

The new 2016 Outlander is a refined crossover utility vehicle that features over 100 engineering and design improvements including a new, powerful and dynamic appearance, enhanced road performance as the result of improvements to noise levels, ride, handling and throttle response, and a more eloquent yet functional interior space. The Outlander demonstrates the brand's renewed emphasis on style, refinement and overall driving experience.

However, no data about engines and performance capabilities have been released by the company as of yet.

The existing selling model comes with a 2.4 litre 4-cylinder engine that produces a maximum power output of 166bhp and 220Nm of peak torque. Another engine on offer is a bigger 3.0 litre unit pumping out 224bhp of power and a peak torque of 290Nm. The engines are expected to be re-tuned and gaining more strength, however both these units burn petrol and are unlikely to come to emerging markets.
