The Japanese carmaker has announced the release of its own 2017 Mitsubishi Eclipse car which is scheduled to come out next year. They are planning to make this car as dominant as possible as it aims to take over the competition in a grand fashion with the newest and latest updates that are coming. What the designers are concentrating on are aesthetic aspects for the car that are going to be futuristic and appealing making the new Eclipse a modern standout.
The Eclipse is immediately scheduled to make its debut in the US market where it may provide the largest impact. We feel that the car is actually going to have largest sales there and that it might present a very interesting opportunity for the buyers in America. The last Eclipse also had good sales in this market and we predict this one going even over that.
The Mitsubishi Eclipse has had a very long stint in the market after its release as it immediately put out some great sales numbers, but unfortunately the vehicle’s production cam to an end once the last model was produced in 2011. The Eclipse was trying to come back ever since as fans have been begging for a new model. It appears the wishes are finally going to be fluffed with this new model as the 2017 one is going to revive the brand and make it yet again a competitive vehicle in the market.
All of the latest news and announcements regarding the 2017 Mitsubishi Eclipse are gathered here in our review and we present it to you ahead of time so you are informed when the actual release date comes.
2017 Mitsubishi Eclipse interior and exterior design
The new 2017 Mitsubishi Eclipse is going to be updated in an extravagant manner which is going to be foreseeable both on the inside and outside of the car. The designers are going to incorporate modern techniques and technology to make the vehicle possible. Some unconventional means have been used to make the car and it is especially apparent on the exterior look for the car. Particularly the body part has some new and curvy design patterns that we have yet to see from a modern car. This is something they are getting ready for the 2017 season and are going use it for the first time with the Eclipse model. If it manages to provide good results, we may get to see it on some other models besides this one.
The result is what you see before you in the pictures. The curvy design is most apparent at the front part of the car where you have a newly added bumper part which shows of this new manufacturing way in a great manner. The front area is also graced with a new grill which fully incorporates itself in the new design pattern that the car adopts. The look of the car is well balanced with the design of the back side which has a similar treatment and comes as a full package. The whole car in fact may be regarded as how one should design a car and many may actually do so after they find out just how the car manages to showcase itself in the market.
The car also sees an enhancement that comes on the inside of the cabinet. The 2017 Mitsubishi Eclipse is going to feature a lot of updates, but unfortunately for the most premium ones you will have to dig a little bit deeper inside your pocket as most of the luxury items that you can add inside your car will come at an extra cost. The base form of the Eclipse’s interior is going to have a great design though and will adopt the same kind of a futuristic look that is seen on the outside with some great comfort features to boot.
The car may come out a bit expensive in the end once you equip it with all the desired optional equipment that is offered but it will all be worth it once you get the car from your dreams which is furnished just the way you want it to be. The model is going to be updated with some new leather wrappings on the seats which also come for the base model and there is an array of new color patterns that you can use and optionally choose.
2017 Mitsubishi Eclipse engine performance
In order to provide more options and enough power for the 2017 Mitsubishi Eclipse, there are going to be two engine options available for this car. The first and base engine is the 2.4 liter four cylinder MIVEC 16 SOHC engine which delivers 65 horsepower and 162 pound feet of torque. This is a bit of a toned down option and a basic one that you can get for a lesser price.
The second one is a more powerful one which brings more power and a better performance of the Eclipse. The 3.8 liter V6 MIVEC engine makes more than the base one with an output of 265 horsepower and 262 pound feet of torque. Thus if you want to get a car with more power this one is a better option for you as it brings the Eclipse to its full potential. You also have two transmission options as well as you can choose between 6-speed dual clutch automatic or 5-speed manual shifters.
Price and release date
The car is still at least a year away from being released. The initial release date is scheduled for the 2017 but we do not have an exact date or actually a month when the car is going to be available. The middle of the year is what we assume and expect to see the 2017 Mitsubishi Eclipse on the market. The price may depend on the equipment that you decided to use in the car, so an assumed price is between $22.000 to $30.000, but it may get a bit hither if you add some optional equipment that comes available here.
