The Eclipse has held steady as one of the most popular models under the Mitsubishi banner ever since its arrival for the 1990 model year. A sporty coupe, the Mitsubishi Eclipse was a fast hit thanks to its streamlined looks, efficient brand of performance, and palatable price tag. The model also got attention under its alias, the Eagle Talon, due to Mitsubishi's involvement with Chrysler. When the first generation of the Eclipse premiered, it was outfitted with a base 1.8L SOHC four-cylinder engine that showed off up to 92 horsepower. Initially, the Eclipse was only available as a front-wheel drive vehicle but all-wheel drive made its way into the lineup during the car's first year on the road. Ascending trim levels were the GS, GS DOHC, GS Turbo, and the GSX. Eclipse GS models offered little else other than improved front-wheel drive. However, the GS DOHC turned it up with peppier 2.0L DOHC configuration capable of 135 horsepower. The GS Turbo showcased even more power with a turbocharged 2.0L DOHC good for up to almost 200 hp. Top-level GSX Eclipse variants were equipped with all-wheel drive, the turbocharged 2.0L engine, and a variety of options. Several updates were made to Eclipse parts during the first few years, but the model remained mostly unchanged. The Mitsubishi Eclipse Turbo got attention from critics and drivers alike and was duly recognized on Car and Driver's vaunted Ten Best List (1989, 1990, 1991, and 1992).
Second-generation versions of the Mitsubishi Eclipse made their way into showrooms in 1995. Trims included the base, RS, GS, and GSX. However, a convertible Spyder trim entered the lineup in 1996 along with a hardtop GS-T. The base engine was improved to a new 2.0L DOHC configuration which produced up to 140 horsepower. RS and GS Eclipse models used the same engine but with an upgraded front-wheel drive system, although the GS showcased more options. The Eclipse Spyder convertible didn't differentiate too much, but it was equipped with a slightly different 2.4L engine and front-wheel drive, while the GS-T hardtop was outfitted with a bolder, turbocharged 2.0L DOHC that churned out 210 horsepower. Both the GS-T Spyder and GSX used the same turbocharged powertrain, but each was equipped with different options for drivers to choose from. When the third generation of the model was released for the 2000 model year, all-wheel drive was dropped from all Eclipse models but trims were outlined similarly. Engines were improved slightly but overall, output was kept pretty much the same. Trims for the third generation were the RS, GS, GS Spyder, GT, GT Spyder, GTS, and GTS Spyder.
2006 welcomed in the fourth generation of the Mitsubishi Eclipse. Trim levels this time around were the GS (base), GS Sport, the GT Hardtop, and the GT Spyder. Like the previous generation, all trims offered only front-wheel drive. The base GS included a substantial amount of standard amenities and features, including 18" alloy wheels, air conditioning, and full power accessories. Its engine was a 2.4L four-cylinder that delivered approximately 160 horsepower. The GS Sport showed off the same drivetrain but displayed a power driver's seat, leather front seats, and distinctive styling similar to the GT trims. Both the GT Hardtop and GT Spyder were equipped with a 3.8L V6 engine that pumped out up to 260 horsepower along with a sport-tuned suspension and bigger brakes. There weren't many notable updates made to the Eclipse parts after the model arrived for the fourth generation until the 2009 model year, when Mitsubishi ordered a slight redesign of the model. Such Eclipse parts as xenon HID headlights and dual-exhaust were offered as options for the first time while the powertrain was improved, giving the V6 engine a boost up to 265 horsepower and 262 pounds-per-foot of torque.
Not many in its class can compete with the Eclipse. Long a favorite on the show car circuit, the Eclipse has all the dazzle and flash at its disposal to tackle the scene anywhere in the world. The Mitsubishi Eclipse doesn't deviate too much series to series, and all present pretty much the same package: neck-breaking style and sleekness for the exterior as well as poppy, if not downright hungry performance. A whole lot of drivers love their Eclipse and why not? When this ride is spruced up the right way, it's the talk of the town.
