2006 Mitsubishi Galant Overview
Overall User Score
Based on 2 reviews
The Mitsubishi Galant is essentially carried over for 2006, but there are a few minor adjustments. There are few subtle design changes for the wheels and interior trim. The ES model now comes with anti-lock brakes and the LS and GTS models get a tire pressure monitor.
The Galant has never has never been able to steal the spotlight from some of its more mainstream competitors like the Honda Accord and Toyota Camry. A comprehensive redesign in 2004 produced a sedan better matched for the American market, and the Galant has received more recognition in recent years. The sedan is set apart from its competitors by a larger V-6, athletic handling abilities, and unique interior and exterior styling.
Galant styles include the base DE, the more customizable ES, the luxurious SE, the well-equipped LS and the sporty GTS. All Galants include full power accessories, air conditioning, keyless entry, a CD player, cup holders and automatic-off headlights. Options availability is determined by the trim.
The DE, ES and SE are powered by a 2.4 liter inline four cylinder engine, which generates 160 horsepower and 157 pound-feet of torque. A four-speed automatic is the only transmission option with this engine and fuel economy is estimated at 23/30 mpg. The LS and GTS house a 3.8 liter V-6, supplying 230 horsepower and 250 pound-feet of torque. The four-speed automatic transmission comes with a manual shifter. Fuel efficiency falls to 19/27 mpg with the V-6.
The Galant's interior is one of its most distinctive features. The design is sleek and modern, and the controls are user-friendly and well-placed. Front seat comfort is excellent, but the rear quarters are a bit cramped for larger passengers. The sedan is also an above average performer. The V-6 models will accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in just 6.8 seconds, but the four-speed transmission lacks the smoothness of many competitors.
