This year, Mitsubishi's hot hatch becomes a full-fledged Grand Touring coupe. The Eclipse now surpasses the Ford Mustang V6 in terms of power, while overwhelming another sporty coupe segment rival, Acura's RSX, with 260 lbs.-ft. of torque. New from the ground up, the only thing the Eclipse has in common with the car it replaces is its name.

In addition to the practicality provided by virtue of a roomy interior, the 2006 Mitsubishi Eclipse represents advances in styling, engine output and ride comfort. Designed to combine exotic styling and performance with the utility of a daily driver, the new two-door Eclipse coupe sports an impressive power range, room for four adults, and several new safety and luxury amenities without sacrificing the incredible value that the Eclipse name has come to represent.

The 2006 Eclipse is carved from a solid new foundation. From the floorpan to the roof, the Eclipse has a stronger, more rigid platform. Every opening in the body - including doors, hatch and engine compartment - has been reinforced to help resist the bending and twisting forces exerted on an automobile. The body employs high tensile strength steel panels to reduce body weight and increase body rigidity, as well as new straight frame rails. The Eclipse's robust structure is the key to its ride quality, handling feel, safety and overall refinement.

Mitsubishi dealerships will showcase the 2006 Eclipse beginning in late May, 2005. The four-passenger, two-door coupe is powered by a choice of two robust engines that are designed to produce the majority of their torque at lower revolutions. The Eclipse GS is equipped with a 2.4-liter engine mated to either a four-speed automatic or five-speed manual transmission, and the 3.8-liter V6 equipped GT comes with a new six-speed manual or five-speed automatic that, like the four-speed, has a Sportronic(TM) mode which allows drivers to manually engage their desired gear.
