CYPRESS, Calif., March 29 /PRNewswire/ -- Mitsubishi Motors North America,
Inc. (MMNA) will reshape the image of a sporty crossover SUV at the 2006 New
York International Auto Show with the introduction of the all-new 2007
Mitsubishi Outlander. Featuring a passionate design, the 2007 Outlander will
deliver an engaging driving experience and innovative features.
The 2007 Outlander joins an invigorated lineup of Mitsubishi vehicles
designed to exude the "thrill" of driving, including the recently launched
all-new 2007 Eclipse Spyder convertible and the new 2007 Galant Ralliart
sports sedan. The Mitsubishi Concept-X, a head turning design study
introduced at the 2005 Tokyo Motor Show, will make its first public appearance
in the United States at the Javits Center. Also on display is the Mitsubishi
Concept-CT MIEV, a groundbreaking concept for a hybrid-powered small car,
first unveiled at the 2006 North American International Auto Show.
The all-new 2007 Mitsubishi Outlander is on the leading edge of
versatility, technology, and value in the crossover SUV segment. The 2007
Outlander debuts the all-new 3.0L V6 MIVEC engine and features a standard
six-speed Sportronic(R) automatic transmission with one-touch manual shifting
and adaptive electronics. The Outlander XLS adds rally inspired Sportronic
steering wheel paddle shifters for shifting control at the driver's
fingertips. All Wheel Control (AWC), an advanced version of all-wheel drive
is available. An innovative two-piece flap-fold rear tailgate makes cargo
loading easy, and an in-floor stowable third-row seat adds to the XLS model's
versatility. Technology is one of the hallmarks of the new Outlander,
including a standard Bluetooth(R) hands-free cellular phone interface,
advanced FAST-Key access system, and optional 650-watt Rockford Fosgate(R)
audio system and DVD entertainment. A new hard-drive navigation system option
will be state of the art.
With an exterior that carries over the full flavor of the Lancer
Evolution's image and a high quality interior, the Mitsubishi Concept-X points
the way to a new-age Evolution design that is as handsome and purposeful as it
is functional. The Concept-X mates a 2.0-liter 4-cylinder DOHC MIVEC
intercooler-turbocharged engine to a high-performance six-speed auto-manual
transmission and introduces the Super All Wheel Control (S-AWC) vehicle
dynamics control system. An on-board multi-media system complements the
interior design, featuring a high-definition LCD monitor displaying real-time
vehicle and S-AWC operating status, navigation system maps and DVD audio
Mitsubishi Concept-CT MIEV
The groundbreaking Mitsubishi Concept-CT MIEV introduces an innovative
hybrid powertrain packaged in an entirely new type of vehicle architecture.
The ultra-compact four-door hatchback captures the essence of the Mitsubishi
brand while combining practicality, fun-to-drive performance and low fuel
consumption. The key to the Concept-CT MIEV's roomy packaging, performance
potential and fuel efficiency is the Mitsubishi In-wheel motor Electric
Vehicle (MIEV) hybrid powertrain, which employs an electric motor in each of
the vehicle's four wheels. MIEV eliminates the need for a center differential
and driveshaft, allowing for location of vital components to optimize safety
and weight distribution and maximize interior space. This concept provides a
vision into the future of advanced hybrid technology in a fun and futuristic

convertible top that folds completely out of sight under a flush-fitting
powered tonneau cover in 19 seconds. The GS model is powered by a 162-hp

sound equalization for top-up or top-down driving. The new 2007 Eclipse
Spyder is now available at dealerships.
