When it came time to replace the Eclipse, Mitsubishi engineers turned from the turbocharged inline four (which was relegated to the Lancer Evolution and similar rally-inspired models) and instead to the V6, for a different driving experience than the older, more manic, Eclipses. What the V6 offers is torque—205 ft-lbs. of it—and overall driveability improvements. There’s thrust all over the engine range, and it makes the GTS a more competent overall car that doesn’t need to be clinging to the hairy edge of its performance envelope to be enjoyable. The new bodystyle is also unique, featuring prominent strages on the doors that are echoed in the gills flanking the lower front air intake. An exposed fuel filler even gives it an additional sporty touch, as do the multi-element rear lamps. The Eclipse takes the Mitsubishi sport coupe in an entirely new direction.
