Mitsubishi Showcases New 2009 Galant Midsize Sedan at Chicago Auto Show

Eclipse Coupé

CHICAGO - Mitsubishi Motors North America, Inc. (MMNA) is showcasing the new 2009 Mitsubishi Galant midsize sedan at the Chicago Auto Show, along with exciting new performance models for 2008 and 2009, and the daring Concept-RA sports coupe.

The 2009 Mitsubishi Galant introduces expressive new styling, desirable feature content and a new value standard, spearheaded by the Sport editions. In addition, the updated 2009 Eclipse coupe and Eclipse Spyder models will debut at the 2008 Chicago Auto Show, which is open to the public from February 8-17 at McCormick Place. The 2009 Eclipse models feature revised front and rear styling, with the V-6 GT models gaining a new dual exhaust system, standard Active Stability Control (ASC), HID head lamps and a new, large rear spoiler.

The Concept-RA provides a glimpse into where Mitsubishi can take sport coupe design and performance. Concept-RA is an athletic pure coupe concept combining a passion for driving with a heightened sensitivity for the environment, thanks to high-output clean diesel power. Appearing together, as they did in Detroit, are the 2009 Lancer Ralliart and the high-performance 2008 Lancer Evolution that arrived in dealerships in January.

The turbocharged, all-wheel-drive Ralliart model goes on sale later this summer. The new Lancer Evolution offers blistering performance from a 291-hp turbocharged MIVEC 2.0-liter engine and an available Twin Clutch-SST gearbox. Super-All Wheel Control, featuring Active Center Differential (ACD) 4-wheel drive and an Active Yaw Control (AYC) rear differential, provides unprecedented handling and stability on the road or track. The Lancer Ralliart will be powered by a detuned version of the Evolution engine paired with the Twin Clutch-SST gearbox.
