Your not Seeing things, That Mirage is a Sedan!

Mirage G4, 2017 Mirage

Mitsubishi scored a huge win with its latest generation of the Mirage.  With its smaller engine, spacious interior, and clean styling, the Mirage teaches you that being small can be a good thing. The Mirage is pound for pound a one of the best cars on the market.  It has a reputation for being a money saver with one of the best miles per gallon for a vehicle that is not a hybrid.  The Mitsubishi Mirage’s sales success led to the additional expansion of a sedan based model.  We here at Jim Shorkey are happy to announce we have the 2017 Mitsubishi G4 Sedan. The G4 Sedan is unique from the Hatchback model but keeps the traits that makes the Mirage loved.

The 2017 Mitsubishi Mirage G4 is a four-door sedan version of the pre-existing Mirage hatchback.  All 2017 Mitsubishi Mirage models will get a revamp no matter hatchback or sedan.  The sedan obviously gains a trunk, the G4 sports all of the upgrades made to the Mirage sedan for 2017, including Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility.  Switching to a four-door sedan body changes the styling, and at the other end there’s a designed a sedan-specific front fascia.  The G4 sedan is already sold in a bunch of other markets as either the Mirage G4 or the Attrage, and Mitsubishi decided this was the year to bring the sedan to North America for some time.

Mirage Sedan, Mitsubishi sedan, Mitsubishi Mirage, Mirage,

The Mitsubishi G4 Mirage offers the same 1.2-liter, three-cylinder engine as the Mirage hatchback. While driving you should expect it to produce the same 78 horsepower and 74 pound-feet torque, and for the same five-speed manual and CVT automatic transmission options to be on tap. What the Mirage lacks in power it makes up for in fuel economy: the last hatchback model to be EPA certified got 40 mpg combined, making it the most efficient non-hybrid car sold in the U.S. The Sedan will get 37 mpg

The interior should be pretty similar to the Mirage hatchback, which gets a new steering wheel and seat materials as part of its 2017 refresh. Like the hatchback, the Mirage G4 gets Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The 300-watt Rockford Fosgate audio system from the five-door may be offered on the sedan as well.

Why the Mitsubishi Lancer Ralliart Could Be the Most Difficult Car to Get Your Hands On in 2015

Some things come and some things go. And the 2015 Mitsubishi Lancer Ralliart seems to be one of those things that will go. Mitsubishi recently announced the Lancer Ralliart production starts next month and will end in December 2014. That’s a very short window of only 4 months, and production numbers of the performance model will be very limited—forcing interested parties to act quick when the time comes.

di-mitsubishi_lancer_ralliart_2014_2015

Additionally, the 2015 Mitsubishi Lancer Ralliart comes with seven new standard features both inside and out for the new model year but, as we mentioned before, they won’t be around long. It also comes with new pricing that bumps the cost up $1,100 over the outgoing model. Mitsubishi will keep the cost under the $30,000 mark and prices the 2015 Ralliart at $29,495 without destination/handling.

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!

Mitsubishi To Team Up with Nissan for Electric Car Overseas

Electric cars are still a relative newcomer to the US. When they made their mainstream debut, the cheapest electric vehicle on the market was the Mitsubishi i-MiEV. Much has changed since then, including partnerships. Now, four years later, Mitsubishi and Nissan are teaming up to build an EV that costs half that amount before any tax rebates, according to widespread reports the past couple of weeks.

The Mitsubishi i-MiEV, Mitsubishi’s electric car

This collaborative minicar-based EV will be aimed specifically at the Japanese market, where this type of vehicle could prove especially popular in major metro areas like Tokyo, where parking comes at a premium and gas costs can be exceptionally high. Nissan and Mitsubishi are also working together on a national EV charging network meant to expand public charging offerings all across the island nation.

But the big draw would be a the super-low price, as after Japan’s generous EV incentives of about $7,200, this new micro EV would cost buyers less than 1.78 million yen, or about $8,000. People have spent less on countertops for their kitchen makeovers, but to have a vehicle that allows you to eliminate or reduce your gas costs to almost nothing?

Let’s hope this is more than just rumor and hearsay. Would you drive an Mitsubishi/Nissan electric car with that price tag?

Mitsubishi Lancer: Sporty AND Safe

The Lancer is one of Mitsubishi’s most popular vehicles. Traditionally, it’s thought of as a sporty, compact vehicle, but this perception is about to change.

2014-Mitsubishi-Lancer-Evolution-Sedan-GSR-4dr-Sedan-Photo-2.png

The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) recently named this affordably priced and fun-to-drive vehicle an official IIHS “Top Safety Pick” for both the 2014 and 2015 models.

The Lancer joins the ranks of Mitsubishi’s outstanding crossover/SUV offerings in the stylish 5-passenger Outlander Sport and the 7-passenger Outlander as Mitsubishi vehicles rated as a “Top Safety Pick” or higher.

The exceptionally well-engineered Lancer—thanks in part to Mitsubishi Motor’s patented Reinforced Impact Safety Evolution (RISE) body/chassis safety cell construction system—made the grade by passing a very stringent crash test.

In a press release, Don Swearingen, Executive Vice President of Mitsubishi Motors North America said, “It’s truly gratifying to see our very popular Mitsubishi Lancer once again named a “Top Safety Pick” by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). The Lancer is a very versatile compact sports sedan that has it all—exceptional safety, excellent fuel economy, sporty performance, and plentiful standard features—and at a price to fit almost any budget.”

The Outlander is equipped with standard 3rd-row seating, making it a 7-passenger vehicle capable of carpooling.

Your kids are equipped with new accessories—shoes, clothes, and backpacks—and your car should be too! The Outlander is accessorized with a dazzling 6.1-inch touchscreen display for a modern streamline look and added functionality. Located between the tachometer and speedometer, the Outlander’s color LCD multi-information display serves up a wide range of information, such as outside temperature, fuel level, average fuel consumption, trip details, and more!

The available Lane Departure Warning (LDW)4 system uses an on-board camera to monitor lane position in front of the vehicle, alerting the driver if it detects the vehicle is leaving its lane. Additionally, the available Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC)5 system uses 77GHz radar technology to accurately judge distances between you and the vehicle ahead, helping you maintain a safe driving distance. And by alerting the driver of oncoming obstructions, the available Forward Collision Mitigation (FCM)6 system can help you avoid accidents – and even automatically apply the brakes, if necessary. Its the perfect vehicle for any rainy or snowy day!
