CAR MAINTENANCE | AUTO REPAIR | MECHANIC ADVICE - Rare Rides: The Sporty and Very Rare 1991 Mitsubishi Debonair, by AMG (Half I)

At this time’s Rare Experience is the second try Mitsubishi made to construct its personal full-size govt car for the Japanese Home Market. Debonair by no means moved exterior its residence market, and all the time performed third fiddle to competitors from the likes of Toyota Crown and Nissan Gloria (then a Prince mannequin). At this time’s instance goes barely additional and provides AMG taste to the front-drive combine.

There’s a number of information to cowl right here, and in the present day we discuss in regards to the mannequin’s beginnings.

Mitsubishi launched the Debonair in 1964 as their first govt flagship sedan. The largest car the corporate had constructed prior was the compact class Colt 1000, so Debonair was fairly a leap ahead. Launched on the tenth All-Japan Motor Present, it was described as a dignified debut.

Designed by German and former GM designer Hans Bretzner, Debonair was impressed by the 1961 Lincoln Continental. It began out with a 2.0-liter inline-six and progressed finally to a 2.6-liter inline-four used by some Ok-car variants. And that engine sharing was a touch on the first Debonair’s longevity: It was well-liked sufficient to stay a mainstay in Mitsubishi’s lineup, largely unchanged through 1986. Revised solely frivolously and simply 4 occasions all through its run, by the mid-Eighties Mitsubishi realized modernization was so as.

In 1986, the second Debonair debuted, with a swap to front-drive configuration. In its new format, even the shortest Debonair was longer than the outgoing model. Size decided which of three engines powered the Debonair. The 185-inch mannequin had a 2.0-liter V6, whereas the 191.5-inch had a 3.0 of six cylinders. The range-topping and longest 197.4-inch model had been known as Royal 150. It had a supercharged 150 horsepower model of that 2.0-liter V6. The 3.0-liter V6 was Mitsubishi’s 6G72, which you’d know from the Dodge Caravan and Dynasty. The solely transmission accessible was a four-speed automated. Ultimately, the supercharged 2.0 V6 was dropped, as in 1989 a twin-cam 3.0 debuted that upped energy from 155 horses to 200.

The change to front-drive and the extra pedestrian styling began the decline of the Debonair, and earlier than lengthy Mitsubishi wanted to unfold the event {dollars} round a bit. Subsequent time we’ll discuss badging and market share.
