Exterior Front 2019 Outlander Changes

Here is a quick overview of the front exterior changes on the 2019 Mitsubishi Outlander. As you can see, there is not just one change to mention; it’s an entirely new look for this Mitsubishi SUV/Crossover.

2019 Mitsubishi Outlander Front Exterior Changes

Newly Designed Headlights & Fog Lamp Bezel

Since seeing the road is an essential part of driving, let’s start with the all-new 2019 Outlander redesigned headlamp.

  • LED High & Low-Beam Headlights
  • LED Fog Lamps

2019 has a new more technical look with key-line connected through the grille with new inner lense extension. I’m not 100% sure if this is a better light because of this internal lense extension or if it’s just for looks. The one takeaway is the 2018 Outlander only had an LED low-beam, and the 2019 Outlander has both LED for high-beam and low-beam.

Newly Designed Grille

Grilles are one of those signature things that every vehicle has, and many people can determine the year and model of a car just by looking at a grille. 2019 is one of those years for the Outlander. When comparing the grilles of a 2018 outlander to 2019, it’s pretty apparent the grille has had a complete redesign.

The 2019 Mitsubishi Outlander grille has a lot more style and detail than the 2018 Outlander. With the grille having this sponge looking metal grade detail, giving the entire grille appears a more sophisticated look. Additionally, the material provides the grille with more support and protection.

Extensive Front Bumper & Skid Guard Protection

The 2019 Mitsubishi Outlander has a significant addition to the front bumper. It almost looks like a grille guard. Mitsubishi calls it a skid guard and lower bumper extension. It has chrome looking accents and elongates the look of the bumper. This skid guard will better protect the hood, grille, and cooling system.

The new look showcases the vertical look of the bumper and gives added protection to the front bumper cover which has also had an upgrade.

Exterior Rear 2019 Outlander Changes

While the 2019 Mitsubishi Outlander received a massive front exterior redesign, the exterior rear received some upgrades as well. The bumper received an extension and my favorite, new wheels!

2019 Mitsubishi Outlander Exterior Rear Changes

Rear Bumper Extension

Not only did the front bumper get an update on the 2019 Outlander, but the rear bumper did as well. Mitsubishi refers to this as a “bumper extension.” This rear bumper upgrade will reduce the damage to the Outlander body and frame in a low-speed fender bender.

Also, while the rear bumper extension might not look like a big deal on 2019, check out the 2018 Outlander and it’s bumper, a sliver of silver protectant compared to 2019. While the 2018 rear bumper will protect the Outlander frame in a slow-speed crash, the 2019 Outlander rear bumper looks more sturdy.

New Wheel Design on the 2019 Outlander

When I was growing up, I drove a 1969 Volkswagen bug with mag wheels. I was always getting compliments on those mag wheels. While the 2019 Mitsubishi Outlander doesn’t have mag wheels, wheels are an essential part of a vehicles looks, and Mitsubishi is pulling out all the stops with these 18” Alloy wheels on the 2019 Outlander.

Wheels are very subjective, you either like them, or you don’t. The good news is you can always change out your wheels if you don’t like the way the wheels look.
