Mitsubishi Names Next Crossover SUV 'Eclipse Cross'
When Mitsubishi released a teaser of its upcoming crossover SUV last month, the automaker hinted that it will carry the name of the iconic Eclipse. Now, Mitsubishi has confirmed that its next crossover SUV will bear the name Eclipse Cross.
Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross: The Confirmation
According to CNET, Mitsubishi confirmed that its next crossover SUV will bear the name of one of its most iconic cars that have been discontinued years ago, the Mitsubishi Eclipse. Accordingly, the Eclipse Cross is scheduled to make its debut at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show, which is set to take place next month.
It was also mentioned that after the debut, the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross will also make its way to the North American market. Those who are looking to get their hands on it however, will have to wait a bit longer as the Mitsubishi Eclipse is expected to be delivered to North American shores in the beginning of the following year as a 2019 model.
Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross: The Powertrain
According to report, a turbocharged four-cylinder engine that will be even more powerful than the one found in the Outlander Sport, which cranks out 169 horsepower and 167 pound-feet of torque, will power the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross. Official numbers regarding the engine specs however, have not yet been announced at this point but it is expected that Mitsubishi will reveal all the necessary information about the Eclipse Cross once it makes its debut.
Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross: With An End Comes A New Beginning
Despite many fans and enthusiasts saddened by the fact that the original Mitsubishi Eclipse was discontinued, others rejoice in the fact that with an end comes a new beginning, like in the case of the upcoming Eclipse Cross. It just goes to prove that all good things must come to an end since Mitsubishi's other iconic car Lancer is also bidding its farewell this year. The upcoming arrival of the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross is just the automaker's way of answering the yearnings of the bigger market.
