Mitsubishi's full-size sedan, the Diamante has enjoyed a reputation as one of the Japanese automaker's "go to" vehicles ever since it became available two decades ago. The Mitsubishi Diamante first premiered at the Tokyo Motor Show in 1989. It went on sale first in Japan in 1990 before being released in the US. When it did hit American showrooms, the Diamante was offered as both a sedan and wagon and available in two main trim levels - the ES and LS. The primary engine configuration was a 2.5L V6 engine, but a bolder 3.0L V6 was offered as well. Both were mated to a standard five-speed manual transmission with a four-speed automatic available as an option. As for the model's dimensions the first generation Mitsubishi Diamante measured in with a wheelbase of 107.1 inches (107.2 inches- wagon), a width of 69.9 inches, a height of 52.6 inches (57.9 inches - wagon), and an overall length of 190.2 inches (192.4 inches- wagon).
The first generation of the Mitsubishi Diamante lasted until 1994. During its time in production, there weren't too many changes made to the Diamante parts. The ES trim was outfitted with an SOHC 3.0L V6 engine which got credit for producing up to approximately 160 horsepower directed through a standard automatic transmission. Power windows and mirrors along with a driver's side airbag were standard. Antilock brakes, alloy wheels, cruise control, and a sunroof could be added as options. LS models took it a step further, adding the ABS brakes, alloy wheels, and cruise control as standard. Leather upholstery as well as the sunroof was optional. 1994, the last year for the first-generation Diamante, options were beefed up to traction control and a CD stereo system.
Second-generation versions of the Mitsubishi Diamante were unveiled for the 1995 model year. Larger and no longer offered as a wagon, the Diamante was once again initially released in Japan before making its way to US shores. When it did, the bigger Diamante showed off a wheelbase of 107.1 inches, a width of 70.3 inches, a height of 53.9 inches, and an overall length of 196.1 inches. The top-tier engine 3.0L V6 was given a substantial boost up to 260 horsepower along with 239 pounds-per-foot of torque geared to either a five-speed manual or four-speed automatic transmission. However, the four-speed automatic transmission was the more common choice. 2004 wound up being the last year of the Mitsubishi Diamante was exported to the US. A year later, Mitsubishi discontinued the model altogether from the lineup. Although the Diamante is no longer assembled, it is still recognized as a reliable vehicle known for both a roomy interior and performance due to solid Mitsubishi parts. During its time on the road it received praise from around the industry, including being hailed by AutoWeek for hosting "terrific performance, comfort, and amenities" (2004).
