Mitsubishi's flagship sedan receives a major freshening for 2004, including an all-new fascia and grille that emphasizes the Diamante's upscale character. Inside, the Diamante's center console, including audio and air conditioning controls, were also redesigned to improve ergonomics and ease-of-use. The base-level ES receives new premium fabric, and a four-speed Sportronic(TM) transmission is now standard equipment on the LS and VR-X trim lines.
With the 2004 Diamante, Mitsubishi continues to answer the call for an affordably priced, stylish near-luxury sedan that offers buyers a multitude of features, excellent road manners and a price that's well below what people might expect.
"The Diamante is our flagship sedan, offering luxury and sophistication in a value-rich package a step above the mid-sized sedan segment," said Finbarr O'Neill, co-chairman and chief executive officer of Mitsubishi Motors North America, Inc. (MMNA). "Diamante drivers are especially loyal to the Mitsubishi brand and value the car's performance, styling and affordability. For 2004, Diamante receives design flourishes inside and out that add to this car's premium appeal."
This front-wheel-drive, four-door sedan retains all the luxury features that make the Diamante a jewel in the class, while adding some aggressive exterior styling cues common to performance cars. The VR-X's exterior adds a decklid spoiler, color-key body side trim, unique headlamps and tail lamps.
Mitsubishi Eclipse ConceptE (2004)
The new-for-2004 Mitsubishi Endeavor is one crossover vehicle that creates exceptional value by incorporating the utilitarian design and smart packaging of an S.U.V. with the dynamic, "car-like" performance today's consumers demand. Mitsubishi dealerships began showcasing the 2004 Endeavor in early 2003, and demand for this five-passenger, mid-sized crossover S.U.V. has steadily increased.
The Endeavor is powered by a responsive 3.8-liter, 60-degree V6 engine that is designed to produce the majority of its torque at lower rpm. The Endeavor's drivetrain can be configured as either a front-wheel-drive or full-time all-wheel-drive S.U.V. that offers improved wet weather handling and light-duty off-road capability. All Endeavors come equipped with a four-speed automatic transmission with Sportronic(TM) mode that allows drivers to manually engage their desired gear.
"Extending the appeal of our value-rich lineup of sports utility vehicles, the 2004 Mitsubishi Endeavor combines the 'sport' of a sedan with the family 'utility' of an S.U.V. - all with the kind of styling that turns heads," said Finbarr O'Neill, co-chairman and chief executive officer of Mitsubishi Motors North America, Inc. (MMNA). "This is a vehicle that exudes comfort, through its interior passenger roominess and its smooth car-like manners and handling."
Mitsubishi S.U.V. Family
The new Endeavor is the fourth S.U.V. in Mitsubishi's North American lineup. It joins the entry-level, crossover Outlander; the reliable, rugged, truck-based Montero Sport; and the supremely capable, technological flagship, the Montero. Given its size, sophistication, appointments, configurations and pricing structure, the Endeavor is positioned to attract S.U.V. consumers who are looking for more interior room than an Outlander, yet who aren't concerned with the rugged off-road performance of the Montero or Montero Sport.
Mitsubishi Endeavor Ralliart Concept (2004)
Year after year, midsize sedans represent the bestselling vehicle segment in America, making up one of every five vehicles on the road. Thanks to adaptability and practicality, the midsize four-door sedan has become so indispensable that it's often referred to as the "family" sedan. But in addition to the practicality provided by virtue of a roomier interior, the 2004 Mitsubishi Galant boasts enhanced style and performance, creating the family sedan for the spirited family.
In order to succeed in such a hotly contested market segment, Mitsubishi Motors knew that its latest iteration of the midsize sedan would have to swing for the fences and make substantial gains in interior room, overall refinement, and engine output. The all-new 2004 Galant would have to be bigger, better, and more powerful than ever.
"The 2004 Mitsubishi Galant is an exceptional value in the mid-sized sedan segment, offering consumers a stylish alternative at an unbeatable price without sacrificing quality, comfort and ride,'' said Finbarr O'Neill, co-chairman and chief executive officer of Mitsubishi Motors North America, Inc. (MMNA). "Reliability is a core value for Galant, and this newest edition - our fifth in North America - gives us a clear edge with buyers looking for something more distinctive in the class - a car with equal parts performance and excitement."
Built on a Solid Foundation
A vehicle's fundamental quality comes from its chassis, and the 2004 Galant is carved from a solid new foundation. From the floorpan to the roof, the Galant has a stronger and more rigid platform. Every opening in the body, including doors, trunk and engine compartment, has been reinforced to help resist the bending and twisting forces that are exerted on a moving automobile. The body employs more high tensile strength steel panels to reduce body weight and increase body rigidity. The Galant's robust structure is key to its ride quality, handling feel and overall refinement.
