Mitsubishi is aiming to regain traction as a contender among import-based manufacturers with the 2008 Lancer leading the way to increased public acceptance and corporate prosperity. How, you ask? By adding style, interior room, 32 more base horsepower and a bit of a rally-racing edge, a motorsports discipline for which the company is internationally known. The Lancer first arrived in 2002 as a replacement for the subcompact Mirage and was the more tepid version of the brand's torrid Evolution rally-based machine.

Whether they're used for work or play, pickup trucks are a North American staple. Mitsubishi clearly acknowledges that fact and hopes to get in on the action with the new Raider. It's no secret that this Japanese-based automaker has endured its share of rough waters in the past couple of years and has pruned its vehicle mix and instituted a lengthier bumper-to-bumper warranty on all remaining vehicles as a way of rebuilding sales and marketshare. Now, with the addition of the Raider to the fold, Mitsubishi will join other import-base brands such as Honda, Nissan, Toyota and Mazda in offering a pickup.

Mitsubishi's first hint it was building a pickup came on the 2004 auto show circuit with its Sport Truck Concept. This forerunner to Mitsubishi's new-to-the-market 2006 Raider midsize pickup was created to provide a sporty-yet-practical pickup for the urban consumer. While not as bold and futuristic-looking as the concept, the Raider fulfills this mission. It shares its chassis and powertrain with Dodge's new-generation Dakota, but has an exterior design all its own. Starting price for the Raider is $19,180.

It has been a long, winding and largely uphill road for Mitsubishi, but the 2006 Eclipse sports coupe might just be the vehicle to put the company back on the straight and narrow. There's no denying that times have been tough for this Japanese automaker, but the Eclipse is the first of what will be a new wave of vehicles to hopefully jump-start the company's revival. Next up is the Raider pickup, based on shared technology with the Dodge Dakota, that arrives this fall. Other new sets of wheels are expected to follow, all designed to broaden brand appeal and fill showrooms with buyers.

CLEAR SPRING -- One person was injured in a single-vehicle accident at 1:21 p.m. today -- an accident that closed westbound Interstate 70 for about a half hour. Maryland State Police are investigating the accident just west of St. Paul Road. The westbound lanes were reopened by 1:50 p.m. after emergency personnel left the scene though police said travel was still sluggish through the area. Preliminary investigation revealed that a 2003 Mitsubishi four-door sedan was traveling westbound on I-70 west of St. Paul Road when a tractor and trailer combination inadvertently changed lanes, causing the Mitsubishi to travel into the center median where the vehicle rolled over several times.

Mitsubishi is spicing up its automotive lineup and the new mid-size Galant appears to be one of the tastier items on the menu. No longer in the business of producing mere niche-market vehicles, the company's designers and engineers are striving to be considered in the same breath as the big-volume sellers - Toyota, Honda, Mazda and Nissan - and they're doing it by applying distinctive Mitsubishi-specific styling to the entire fleet. They're also making sure that performance lovers won't be disappointed.

Few new cars have earned the loyal following of a generation of young buyers bent on style, image and speed. Over the past decade, however, the Mitsubishi Eclipse coupe/convertible has become an icon for young car cultists weaned on import-based sport-compact platforms. Looking good and going fast doing it - courtesy of willing aftermarket suppliers - is all part of the package. For people who treasure these attributes, there is no better place to begin than the Eclipse. As many automakers have already discovered, the youth market is a discerning-yet-fickle audience and finding just the right product to sell is a major challenge.

The Mitsubishi car line has undergone a major change, with an all-new midsize Galant sedan, while the compact Lancer is adding two Ralliart performance models - a sedan and sportback wagon. The company also has expanded its SUV line, adding the all-new, Illinois-built Endeavor to the Montero, Montero Sport and compact Outlander. Lancer Ralliart - After the big splash last year of the oh-so-fast Lancer Evolution sedan, a star of movies, video games, and street-racers everywhere with its turbocharged 2.0-liter, 271-horsepower engine, all-wheel drive, police-escort tail spoiler and bright colors, Mitsubishi rolls out affordable performance this year with the Ralliart sedan and sportback wagon.
