Nissan Rogue to share platform with next Outlander
The next generation Mitsubishi Outlander will be the first Mitsubishi that will benefit from the fruit of the ‘Alliance’ (a joint venture between Nissan and Mitsubishi on a global scale), which could be the start of a new direction from the brand. It’s also reported that the 2021 Outlander will still have a plug-in hybrid variant.
Although the underpinnings of the Rogue and the Outlander will be the same, the ‘Alliance’ chairman Carlos Ghosn said that Mitsubishi should have its own marketing strategy.
Other Mitsubishi vehicles will also share Nissan platforms in the future. The smaller Outlander Sport will be built atop the alliance platform that Nissan Versa, Kicks, and Juke sit on.
A midsize pickup truck has been the top request of Mitsubishi dealers this year, and it would also probably share the Alliance platform. With this, another Navara-based pickup truck will likely emerge sooner or later.
