The Straightline bloggers didn't think much of the Peugeot's grill.

Yeah, the French sure have a different taste when it comes to car design (and their architecture - e.g. Eiffel tower). I bet Mitsubishi cannot complain. This partnership with PSA is vital to their survival. It's more like the saying "beggars cannot be choosers".

The Citroen front is nice IMHO. The name is another matter...they really should have gone with Double-Crosser.

This is a follow up to the info that "rcpax" provided us with months ago. I found the article at the thecarconnection.com
Even at the European launch of the new Mitsubishi Outlander six weeks ago, people were talking it as a done deal. It was even mentioned in the press pack. But finally the news has been confirmed - the Peugeot 2.2-liter diesel engine will be offered in the Japanese SUV.
A statement released by PSA - parent company of French brands Peugeot and CitroŽ n - says a collaborative agreement has been signed. Supply of the 154-hp unit, complete with particulate filter, will start sometime in the summer. It's unclear whether Mitsubishi will continue to offer the 138-hp 2.0-liter powerplant which is the launch diesel model.
The new deal lends some symmetry to the joint venture. Peugeot and CitroŽ n will sell their own rebadged versions of the Outlander, christened the 4007 and C-Crosser respectively, from later this year. Both cars will also get the 2.2-liter engine.
And perhaps there will be more announcements in the future - the last line of the statement says the pair will pursue their cooperation strategy in 'win-win' areas. Mitsubishi is expected to offer a diesel engine in the new U.S. Lancer by 2010, but it is not known if this engine will be the one it referred to at the Detroit auto show.

Wow, the Citroen variant is sharp! Love the wheels! Excuse me while I get back to drooling.

You have to hand it to the French when it comes to car design - they have that "je ne sais quoi" ... Why they can even make an Outlander chic!
Too bad we will never see these and the PSA diesel engines Stateside ...

Check out JALONIK or WorldCarFans, you will see 5 photos of an Outlander 'wrapped-up', code name JC49, or JX49. The windows are exactly the same (to be made in Mexico).

I don't see anything that said it's an Outlander, nor can I see, without doubt, that it's an Outlander based vehicle. AFAIK, all Outlanders, including variants from Peugeot and Citroen, will all be made in Japan, supplied to each marque as an OEM product, interior and exterior details and fitted with an engine to the exact specs of each marque. So until then that we can see it's indeed a variant of the Outlander, I'll take this "info" with a grain of salt. Maybe same platform, but being a direct variant of the Outlander, manufactured by Mitsubishi itself, I doubt it.
