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

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.
