Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross Coming to Dealerships Soon

Miami Lakes Automall 2018 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross Performance

When we first heard about the 2018 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross, many were skeptical as to why Mitsubishi Motors was naming a crossover with a similar name to one of their retired models, the Mitsubishi Eclipse, that was a sports car. As we learned more about it from the 2017 Geneva Motor Show and again during the 2018 Los Angeles Auto Show, the Eclipse Cross got more and more exciting with new technology in the Eclipse Cross and its official addition to the Mitsubishi Motors lineup. Now, the 2018 Mitsubishi Eclipse is on its way to dealerships across America.

Mitsubishi Motors did a lot of interesting stuff with the Eclipse Cross following its debut. Almost as if to capitalize on American history, the automaker made use of “The Great American Eclipse” during a photoshoot and released tidbits of information about the Eclipse Cross as time went on. Now, with all the specs online, we can look at all the 2018 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross has to offer.

Available in four trims, technically five*, consumers will be able to enjoy Mitsubishi’s Super All-Wheel Control (S-AWC) driving system while on the road. This is Mitsubishi’s own all-wheel drive system, able to handle various types of terrain. The Super All-Wheel Control even offers three selectable driving modes to enhance the crossover’s performance – auto, snow, and gravel.

What Future Hybrids Could Mean for Mitsubishi

University Mitsubishi Future Hybrids

Now that Mitsubishi Motors is moving forward with their partnership with the Nissan-Renault Alliance, much of their future lineup seems to be slated into alternative fuel and self-driving autonomous vehicles. With hybrid SUVs and possibly electric vehicles, one wonders what will come from the Japanese automaker next.

Mitsubishi i-Miev

The Mitsubishi i-Miev is one of a kind for Mitsubishi Motors. Their first all-electric vehicle that was also the world’s first highway capable electric vehicle, the Mitsubishi i-Miev has been doing well overseas. It came to the North American branch for several years, but due to sales was discontinued in 2017.

Being an all-electric vehicle, the Mitsubishi i-Miev is powered by an electric motor and a 16 kWh lithium-ion battery. The electric motor generates a max output of 49 kW and a max torque of 144 lb-ft of torque, and has a max speed of 80 mph. The Mitsubishi i-Miev also has a total driving range of about 100 miles. Able to be charged in four ways, the i-Miev is possibly the most convenient electric vehicle on the market. Using one of three electrical outlets, consumers can charge the i-Miev between 6 – 10 hours. Quick charging only takes 30 minutes.

Mitsubishi Motors Past and Future Technology

Miami Lakes Automall 2018 Outlander PHEV Mitsubishi

Mitsubishi Motors has come a long way since it joined the Nissan-Renault Alliance. Having started a new venture with a $1 billion campaign, the alliance is currently looking into Robotaxi partnerships to build up their line of autonomous and artificial intelligent vehicles. While Mitsubishi becomes a larger part of the alliance, before it blends in completely (although still being a competitor for the two connected brands), let us not forget how far Mitsubishi has come on their own. Take a look at technology used in Mitsubishi vehicles today and what we have to look forward to in future concepts.

Powertrain Technology

When it comes to powertrains found in Mitsubishi vehicles, there are two systems of technology that optimize an engine’s performance and the vehicle’s overall fuel economy. The first of these is Mitsubishi’s “MIVEC” system. Standing for “Mitsubishi Innovate Valve Timing Electronic Control System”, the MIVEC system is Mitsubishi’s brand of variable valve timing (VVT) technology, a process that controls the frequency of air intake in an engine and the flow of exhaust. MIVEC systems have also been known to increase power and torque output in select engines, especially those with a turbocharger.

The second piece of technology is a continuously variable transmission (CVT) developed by Mitsubishi Motors that is also commonly known as the INVECS-III. A CVT is a type of automatic transmission that can change seamlessly through various gears for an infinite number of speeds by using a pulley system versus the standard mechanical build for automatic transmissions that can only work for certain speed thresholds, i.e. 3-speed automatic transmission. This allows Mitsubishi cars to keep a steady and smooth drive versus other vehicles that may experience a chugging forward feeling when the next speed threshold is met. Read the rest of this entry >>
