Evolution Of The Mitsubishi Eclipse

The Mitsubishi Eclipse has been around for quite some time, actually first manufactured in 1990 and was built under 3 different names.  The Mitsubishi Eclipse, Eagle Talon, and Plymouth Laser were all the same with different brandings.  In addition to different labels we’ve also seen some great performance versions, even the first generation Eclipse had a turbo version, the Eclipse GS-T.

Here we are 18 years later and more than just the cosmetics have changed on this 4 cylinder, cult inducing, small size car.  Below is a stroll through memory lane with the Mitsubishi Eclipse and where it came from to where it’s going.

Check out more information about the changes the Mitsubishi Eclipse has gone through over the years at Wikipedia.

The Outlander has a list of options that go on and on. Rockford Fosgate  speakers, paddle shifters, and selectable AWD oh my. I don’t think we are in Kansas anymore. Despite everything you could throw at this SUV it’s still the least expensive 6 cyl on the market.
