2001 Mitsubishi Galant Overview

The Galant remains largely unchanged for the 2001 model year. The sedan now meets Low Emission Vehicle standards and Mitsubishi's LATCH child safety restraint system has been added to all models. The optional Cold Weather Package now includes traction control and heated mirrors.

The same model lineup returns this year. Buyers may choose between the base DE, the more equipped ES, the V6-powered ES, the upscale LS or the sporty GTZ. Base level features include air conditioning, an interior air filter, cup holders, power windows and door locks, remote mirrors, a CD player and digital clock. The DE and ES are powered by a four-cylinder engine, while all other models get a V-6.

Mitsubishi's 2.4 liter four cylinder engine produces 145 horsepower and 155 pound-feet of torque. The 3.0 liter V-6 generates 195 horsepower and 205 pound-feet of torque. Fuel economy Fuel economy is estimated at 21/28 mpg with the four, and 20/27 mpg with the V-6. A four-speed automatic is the only transmission option.

The Galant may not be as popular as some of its Japanese competitors, but most reviewers contend that this sedan offers an exceptional value. The Galant's strengths include distinct styling, an inviting interior and overall road manners. Common consumer and reviewer issues include exterior noise intrusion, tight rear quarters and the lack of a manual transmission option.
