Mitsubishi returns to Dakar in 2019 with Eclipse Cross T1 proto



From TheDrive

Lemme guess: Evo X suspension all over, paired with either a Samsonas or Sadev 6-speed SMT. Apparently this will have a TDI --- likely a modified 2.5L 4D56 derived from late model Triton/L200s.

Curious to see if they keep the S-AWC from the Cross, or if they decide to use the one from the Evo X.

Here's to hopefully bringing RalliArt back from the icebox!!!

Correction: most likely Evo RS or RalliArt drivetrain components.

"...full-time four-wheel-drive system with mechanical front, rear, and center differentials."

Would love to see Mitsubishi return to Ralliart trimmings. I think the odds of that lies with whatever the chances are of us seeing the Lancer again....not that electric crossover.

Ralliarts still live on but overseas. North America has been through a phase of more practical cars than performance, Ralliarts and most sporty models went out during that time.

The Colt Ralliart brought over to rival the Fiesta would be great.
