2008 Mitsubishi Ratings, Reviews and Awards

2008 was a big year of Mitsubishi, a car company that was previously considered an "also-ran" in the United States. The brand re-vamped and re-introduced two of its flagship models, the Lancer and the Outlander. The Lancer had previously not had much to recommend it or to set it apart from other sedans on the market. But its 2008 makeover saw an improved performance, more aggressive metal and a sportier design, and new technologies in the cabin, such as a hard-drive based navigation system, keyless entry and start, and Bluetooth. The Outlander SUV got a 2.4 liter four-cylinder engine for 2008 as well as keyless entry. Both Outlander and Lancer models with automatic transmission featured a continuously variable transmission (CVT). The XLS trim option on the Outlander also offered 18-inch wheels. The Mitsubishi Eclipse didn't undergo many changes for 2008, but did introduce a 3.8 V6 engine for the SE trim model.
