2011 Mitsubishi Eclipse At A Glance

PDF File (42.46 KB): 2011 Mitsubishi Eclipse Specs

For the 2011 model year, the Mitsubishi Eclipse – the company’s iconic sports coupe that is available in GS, GS Sport and GT models – receives upgrades that improve both its appearance and performance.

Paying tribute to the original first-generation Eclipse, this two-door hardtop features a new black painted roof that visually enhances the car’s sleek, sports coupe styling. Additionally, all Eclipse models now benefit from a 0.6-in. (15 mm) reduced ride height for 2011 for a more aggressive stance and improved aerodynamic efficiency. A convenient new 12 V accessory outlet has been added to the center console as well.

Other changes to the lineup include new 18-in. alloy wheels as part of a revamped standard equipment package for the mid-grade GS model, and a more comprehensive list of included features for the GS Sport model including leather seating surfaces, heated front seats and side mirrors, power driver’s seat, aluminum pedals, strut tower brace, aluminum entrance sill and a clear lip spoiler.

Thanks to its well-tuned 4-wheel independent suspension, a chassis with excellent structural rigidity and distinctive exterior styling that helps make this sports coupe an “attainable exotic,” the Eclipse has long been an enthusiast favorite in the sports car world. Excellent ergonomics and the convenience of a 2+2 seating arrangement with 50:50 split-folding rear seat backs for enhanced cargo capability also make it a sports coupe for the real world.

A peppy 162 horsepower, normally-aspirated 2.4-liter SOHC MIVEC 16-valve inline 4-cylinder engine powers both the GS and GS Sport models (the base model GS is equipped with a 5-speed manual transmission with an optional 4-speed automatic while the GS Sport comes exclusively with the 4-speed automatic unit). The top-of-the-line Eclipse GT features a 265 horsepower, 3.8-liter SOHC MIVEC 24-valve V-6 that is mated to a 5-speed automatic transmission that features Mitsubishi’s Sportronic® transmission technology, allowing the driver manual gearshift control when called upon.

The base Eclipse GS includes a wide array of no-cost accessories including a 6 speaker 140-watt AM/FM/CD player with MP3 playing capability and auxiliary audio input jack, air conditioning, automatic shut off headlamps, 18-in. alloy wheels, leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, cruise control, anti-theft system, keyless entry with remote tailgate and panic alarm feature and dual exhaust outlets with exhaust finishers.

Included items on the GS Sport are HID headlamps, steering wheel-mounted audio controls, power sliding glass sunroof with sunshade, Bluetooth® hands-free phone system, rearview camera and a 650-watt Rockford-Fosgate® premium audio system with 9 speakers (including a 10-in. subwoofer) and a 3-month pre-paid subscription to SIRIUS® satellite radio.

The top-flight Eclipse GT adds leather-trimmed seating surfaces, automatic climate control, dual heated power side view mirrors, a front strut tower bar, aluminum scuff plates, and a 6-way heated power driver’s seat with a single height and lumbar support adjuster.

Standard safety equipment on all Eclipse models includes 4-wheel disc anti-lock brakes (ABS) with Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD); Active Stability Control (ASC) and Traction Control Logic (TCL); and advanced dual front air bag supplemental restraint system (SRS), side air bags and side curtain air bags.
