It is based on a front engine, rear-wheel drive layout with a plug-in hybrid EV (PHEV) system comprising a 3.0L V-6 supercharged MIVEC engine mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission, with a high-output electric motor and a high-capacity battery to deliver all-terrain performance, according to Mitsubishi.

These functions include a danger detection system that activates the corresponding safety functions and a failure/malfunction early-detection system which urges the driver to seek repairs or other maintenance.
