Founded by Yataro Iwasaki in 1870, the Mitsubishi company initially worked within the shipping organization. Almost forty years later it started building automobiles. The present Mitsubishi lineup includes cars and SUVs.
Mitsubishi debuted the 500 in the early 60s and later developed a larger inventory of passenger cars like the 360 van and pickup.
The company was officially named the Mitsubishi Motors Corporation in the early 70s and then sold fifteen percent of the corporation to Chrysler. The first product of the union was the Colt which was exported to the U.S. as a Dodge vehicle. At the decade’s end, there were more than a million Mitsubishi vehicles being sold every year.
The company’s vehicles were finally sold in the United States with the Mitsubishi brand in the early 80s. Not long after the company launched the Mirage, the Starion and the Galant. By the end of the decade the Mitsubishi name was well know for its dependability. The introduction of the Eclipse, the 3000GT, and the Lancer, along with the reputation of the corporation enabled the company to greatly increase sales.
Chrysler merged with Daimler-Benz in the 1990s. The Mitsubishi brand was included in the merger however by the end of the decade the financial connection had been broken. After that the Mitsubishi corporation suffered some financial losses and problems with vehicle defects.
The current Mitsubishi lineup has regained the reputation for reliability. It includes the Outlander, Galant, the Lancer, the Eclipse, and the i-MiEV. The Outlander SUV comes with three trim choices and speed control, steel wheels, roof rails, remote entry, air conditioning, a CD player with six speakers and fabric upholstery.

The Lancer provides five trims that provide a trip computer, full power components, steel wheels and a CD player with four speakers. The Eclipse can be purchased as a coupe or a convertible. While the convertible has three trims, the coupe comes with four. The Eclipse offers remote entry, speed control, air conditioning, alloy wheels, and a CD player with six speakers.
