You’re not going turbo on us? With Mitsubishi you better bet!

Earlier this month at a Mitsubishi make conference with its dealerships the automotive companies announced that the next generation of vehicles with have a little more pep in their step.  The models will have completely updated turbocharged engines.  Leading the way is 1.5 liter turbocharged engines for the 2018 midsize crossover segment.  This should make the die hard Mitsubishi fans excited.  The brand was notorious for being an early adopter of turbocharging in the 1980’s and 1990’s and boosting sales during that time.

Dealers who attended the meeting said Mitsubishi showed images of the crossover that is slotted between the next generation Outlander Sport and Outlander.  Mitsubishi also told dealers that it may only sell 100,000 vehicles per year in the U.S. ,but it is the biggest and most profitable market for Mitsubishi.  Making the US ideal for investment.  Mitsubishi higer ups are considering a turbocharged 1.1 liter engine for the next generation of the Mirage and supcompact cars.  In addition to the 1.1 liter engine a larger turbocharged engine is being developed for the next generation of the Outlander three row crossover.

“They know we’re their best chance,” said Ryan Gremore, chairman of Mitsubishi’s dealer council and general manager of O’Brien Mitsubishi in Normal, Ill. “You put your resources where you get your best results.”

Don Swearingen, executive vice president of Mitsubishi Motors North America, told dealers that he and CEO Ryujiro Kobashi are traveling to Japan this month to advocate for the turbocharged engine in the Outlander. In an interview, Swearingen said Mitsubishi needs the boosted engine to move the Outlander upscale as fuel economy standards grow more stringent.

Jack Frost is Coming, Are you Ready for Him?

If you look outside it might surprise you that today is the first day of Winter.  Usually at this time of year, it is frozen tundra, but this year, we got lucky. But I’m afraid we’ve got some bad news.  Usually when we get milder weather in December it means January and February will be brutal with snow and ice. But, with mild weather, you can start to winterize your car before Jack Frost makes his appearance Jim Shorkey Mitsubishi has some steps that will ease you into the coming Winter weather.

Jack Frost, Jim Shorkey

 

  1. Wash Your Car

Wash Car, Jim Shorkey, Winterproof

To combat the icy roads we put down salt and soot to help with traction.  Sure, it gets us where we are going but it can do a number on our cars.  Before the first snow hits, you will want to wash your car.  Washing your car before Winter will remove all the dry mud that was caked on.  Mud can hurt the paint if it has been dried on for a long time.  In addition to the wash, add some wax to give your car the needed protection of the harsh Winter.

  1. Add a Battery Charger in Your Car

Jim Shorkey, electric, winterproof

Snowy weather puts your engine under more strain, which in turn means the battery is working harder.  Obviously if it is working harder that means more juice is being used.  This means the battery can run flat, quicker than usual.  Therefore, a battery charger is a good idea. These chargers clip onto your battery’s negative and positive terminals to give you an extra boost.

  1. Check Your Cars Liquids

Car Liquids, Jim Shorkey, Mitsubishi

Nothing sounds more unpleasant than popping your hood on a freezing day.  Be preemptive and check you coolant, oil and anti-freeze.  Or you can come down to the Jim Shorkey Mitsubishi Fast Lane and we can do it for you.  You will want to have a half and half mix of coolant and water in your radiator.  The right mix will allow the water to stay as a liquid well below freezing point.  With engine oil you will want everything running smooth in the engine.

  1. Get New Wiper Blades and Refill Wiper Fluid

Jim Shorkey, Wiper blades,

Snow visibility can be rough, the wipers can smear and actually make your window even worse.  With wiper fluid that can level the playing field.  New wipers can reduce smear as well.

  1. Keep Your Gas at Least Half a Tank

Half a tank, Jim Shorkey, Gas

We aren’t worried about running gas while your driving, we are concerned about your car starting.  Low and changing temperatures can cause condensation to occur inside your gas tank which, when mixed with the fuel, could freeze as it makes its merry way along the fuel lines.

  1. Have a Good Ice Scrapper

Ice Scrapper, Jim Shorkey, Mitsubishi

This one is pretty obvious.  Having a good ice scrapper can go a long way.  You want to get the ice off your car as fast and possible.

  1. Keep an Emergency Kit in the Car

Rescue kit, Jim Shorkey, Mitsubishi

You may find you self in a situation where your car wont start. It’s always a good idea to be prepared.  An emergency kit could be a life saver.  An emergency kit consists of items like engine oil, spare wiper blades, tire pump, jumper cables, salt, blankets and other useful items.

  1. Getting Winter Tires

Jim Shorkey, Mitsubishi, snow tires

Buying winter tires is the best way to fight against snowy conditions.  A good set can last for multiple winters and improve your car’s ability to drive on slippery surroundings.  Winter tires are game changers and many experts say that a 4X2 with winter tires are better in snow than 4X4 with regular tires.

A Look Back at Our Transformation from Suzuki to Mitsubishi

As you probably know, our Jim Shorkey Mitsubishi store used to be Jim Shorkey Suzuki. However, Suzuki stopped selling their cars here in the US, so we improvised and became the dealership that we are today.

We sold our new Suzuki stock months and months ago, and have been replacing all of the signs around the dealership from “Suzuki” to “Mitsubishi” ever since. Take a look at this transition in a few snapshots!
