Mitsubishi Galant 2009

Mitsubishi has introduced the new 2009 Galant midsize sedan, featuring expressive new styling, new user technology and a new value standard.

Mitsubishi has introduced the new 2009 Galant midsize sedan, featuring expressive new styling, new user technology and a new value standard. The performance-tuned Galant Ralliart spearheads the lineup, which for 2009 also includes the 4-cylinder ES, the new 4-cylinder Sport Edition, and the Sport V-6.

New standard factory value packages add a long roster of premium equipment to the 2009 Galant Sport models, at a substantial savings. The 2009 Galant Sport models offer a $1,000+ MSRP value advantage over comparably equipped competitive midsize models.

A 160-hp 2.4-liter MIVEC 4-cylinder engine powers the Galant ES and Sport Edition models. The Sport V-6 model exclusively features a 230-hp 3.8-liter V-6. Four-cylinder Galant models sold in California , Maine , Massachusetts , New York and Vermont are certified as Partial Zero-Emissions Vehicles (PZEV). All 2009 Galant models come standard with a Sportronic® automatic transmission - a 4-speed with the 4-cylinder engine and a 5-speed with the V-6 engines.

The Galant Ralliart is powered by a 258-hp 3.8-liter MIVEC V-6 engine teamed to a 5-speed Sportronic transmission. Exclusive equipment includes Ralliart-tuned sport suspension, new 18-inch alloy wheels, special exterior styling and a wide array of luxury features. The Galant Ralliart can accelerate from zero-to-60 mph in about six seconds.

All 2009 Galant models come standard with anti-lock brakes (ABS) with electronic brake-force distribution (EBD), dual-stage front airbags, front seat-mounted side-impact airbags, side front and rear curtain airbags, and a tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS). The V-6 models feature standard traction control.

The Galant Sport models are equipped as standard with premium features more commonly found in top trim lines, including a power glass sunroof, premium cloth-trimmed heated front seats, automatic climate control, 8-way power driver's seat, steering wheel audio controls, auto-dimming rear-view mirror with Homelink® garage door opener/transmitter, 17-inch aluminum-alloy wheels, fog lights, heated side view mirrors, theft-deterrent alarm system, color-keyed rear spoiler, windshield shade band, dark chrome headlamp reflectors, and an illuminated glove box. The Galant Sport V-6 model and Ralliart also add a standard 360-watt Rockford Acoustic Designô premium audio system that includes SIRIUS® Satellite Radio with a 6-month pre-paid subscription.

The Galant midsize sedans, along with the Eclipse coupe and Eclipse Spyder models and the Endeavor crossover SUV, are all built in the Mitsubishi manufacturing plant in Normal , Ill. , which celebrates its 20th anniversary of vehicle production in 2008.
