    Eclipse Cross seems silly. If you're going to desecrate one of your beloved models, just call it the Eclipse. Plus Mitsubishi got to tie it in with the solar eclipse this summer. Wait until the Tokyo Motor Show when they parade out their e-Evolution crossover concept.

    I hope I don't sound bitter. I'd just like to see Mitsubishi build some more enthusiast models.

    I believe it was a 'cheap' way to market the Eclipse-Cross using the 'Eclipse' name. Mitsubishi enthusiasts all over social media are going crazy and mad over it. Heck, I was in the beginning but really at the end of the day, Mitsubishi has to make end's meet. CUV's are selling like crazy here in Minnesota. The Mitsubishi dealer near me has won awards for selling the most Outlander/Outlander Sports in a certain area (I'll have to look if it was based on the Midwest Region or dealer location). But still, there are many Outlander/Outlander Sports that are being sold right now and those are the big money makers. I hope Mitsubishi gets back on their feet soon so we can finally see a few turbocharged coupes running around again. Heck, revive the "VR4" badge as well! (wishful thinking)
