Mitsubishi’s all-new Galant now offers a 3.8-liter V6 engine, a robust and highly rigid new unibody structure and more than 100 cu. ft. of interior passenger room.

At more than 190-inches in length and 72.4-inches in width the 2004 Galant not only looks substantial, it is. The wheelbase has grown to 108.3-inches. The standard equipped tires have been pumped up to 16-inches.

Mitsubishi’s V6 range opens with the Galant LS that packs the 230 horsepower, 250 lb. ft. engine, a Sportronic automatic/manual transmission, traction control and anti-lock brakes.

The Alpha male of the Galant family is the GTS. Hunkered down on 17-inch alloy wheels, fitted with big stabilizer bars and sporting a strut tower brace under its hood, the GTS has the mechanicals to match the menacing look. Four-bulb projector headlights, parabolic fog lights and a mesh sport grille signal the GTS’ serious intentions. At the rear lies an integrated lip spoiler, custom taillights and a baritone exhaust note that helps leave a lasting impression.

GTS also includes a leather-trimmed interior, 270-watt premium audio system, sunroof, front and side impact air bags, power driver’s seat and automatic climate control.
