The 2018 Mitsubishi Eclipse was not supposed to make an appearance until its debut at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show, which is scheduled to take place next week. However, it seems that the automaker has other plans as Mitsubishi revealed the 2018 Eclipse ahead of its scheduled debut.
2018 Mitsubishi Eclipse Unveiled
According to a report, official images of the 2018 Mitsubishi Eclipse have been released by the automaker. It was mentioned that the photos show swoopy-roofed profile for the 2018 Mitsubishi Eclipse along with styling that gives it a sharp-edged appearance. In its interior, the 2018 Mitsubishi Eclipse features the latest infotainment system from the automaker with a multimedia screen that resembles a tablet. In addition, the 2018 Mitsubishi Eclipse also has Apple CarPlay that allows for drivers to connect their iPhone to the car.
No Power Numbers Revealed Yet
Car and Driver reported that the official numbers for its powertrain have not yet been revealed but it was mentioned that it will be fitted with a new turbocharged inline-four engine. Accordingly, the U.S. market will only get one powertrain option in the form of a 1.5-liter direct-injected engine. This will be paired with a continuously variable transmission (CVT) that will deliver the power through a standard front wheel drive (FWD) setting and an optional all-wheel drive (AWD) configuration. While the specifics on how much power it will be able to generate have not yet been announced, Mitsubishi promised that the powertrain for the 2018 Eclipse will be more powerful than the 2.4-liter naturally aspirated four-cylinder engine that is found in the Outlander, which makes 166 horsepower.
Expected Arrival And Price
The 2018 Mitsubishi Eclipse will first make its official debut at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show. After this, the 2018 Mitsubishi Eclipse is expected to be launched in the U.S. market early next year. Reports stated that the 2018 Mitsubishi Eclipse will have an estimated price of around $20,690 and $24,390.
