Mitsubishi Motors confirmed Monday that its 2016 Outlander will debut during a special press conference at the 2015 New York International Auto Show.

The re-engineered Outlander will be the first vehicle to feature the brand's new "design language" according to a Mitsubishi release.

Teaser images released by the automaker hint at a refurbished grille and fascia, and the automaker has confirmed it will feature 100 engineering and design updates.

"The 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 a result of improvements to noise levels, ride, handling and throttle response, and a more eloquent, yet functional, interior space," said Mitsubishi in a press statement.

Besides that, Mitsubishi isn't confirming anything important about the Outlander yet, like the exact launch date, price, or fuel economy estimates. Interested car buyers will have to wait until next week for those details.

Mitsubishi has said that the Outlander will reach dealerships in July and the 2016 Outlander Plug-in Hybrid will arrive in spring 2016.

We expect the 2016 Outlander to be sold for around the same price as the current Kia Sorento and Hyundai Santa Fe Sport.

Additional details on the 2016 Outlander will be announced during Mitsubishi's big press conference at 11:30 a.m. ET on April 2, 2015. The press conference will be held in the North Hall, booth 260.

For those not attending the N.Y. Auto Show, Mitsubishi Motors press conference will be broadcasted live next week. Click here for information on the official webcast.

Press days for the New York Auto Show are set for April 1 and 2, and the show will be open to the public on April 3-12.

Other vehicles confirmed for the NY Auto Show include the 2016 Chevrolet Spark, and the 2016 Chevrolet Malibu.
