Mitsubishi Releases Teaser Prior to New York Auto Show

Motor Trend logo Motor Trend 3/13/2015 Kelly Pleskot

Mitsubishi is getting our hopes up once again for next month's New York auto show, hinting at a big reveal. In a new teaser, the automaker promises to unveil "the new face of Mitsubishi Motors" on April 2 at a press conference before the show opens to the public.

The darkened image could very well be showing the 2016 Outlander, which Mitsubishi has confirmed for New York this year. This model comes rather early considering the Outlander was last redesigned for the 2014 model year (pictured at right). It is unclear whether Mitsubishi is planning more debuts or announcements for the event. 2014 Mitsubishi Outlander GT© Provided by MotorTrend 2014 Mitsubishi Outlander GT

It is possible we may learn more about the future of the all-new Outlander PHEV plug-in, which has been delayed several times for U.S. release. If all goes as planned, it could go on sale early next year.

We're excited, but we won't get our hopes too high based on this lone teaser image. Just last month at the Chicago auto show, Mitsubishi teased an image of an SUV trekking the sand dunes with a caption "return of a legend." Although we thought this signaled a new Montero, it turned out to be the GC-PHEV Concept the automaker originally debuted over a year ago in Tokyo. But could that have actually been a long tease for a new model debut at the New York auto show? We'll have to wait and see.
