สำหรับเจ้า Galant Fortis หรือ Lancer EX โฉมตกแต่งพิเศษจาก Ralliart นั้น ออกสู่ตลาดมาได้ปีกว่าแล้วแหละ แต่เพราะบ้านเราเพิ่งจะเปิดโฉม Lancer EX ออกมาได้ไม่กี่วันนี้นี่เอง ผมเลยถือโอกาสเอามาใ้ห้แควนๆ Lancer EX ในบ้านเรา ได้ดูกัน เผื่อจะเก็บไปแต่งให้งามๆ อย่างนี้บ้าง
The car features a unique front bumper designed to reduce air resistance. Increasing the size of the “jet-fighter” grille, an element of the MMC sedan design identity, both improves engine cooling and with the chrome treatment of its perimeter enhances the premium look to the car. The bottom edge of the bumper is designed as an air dam for improved handling and vehicle stability at higher speeds.
The engine hood uses a lightweight aluminum panel with an air scoop to feed the turbocharger; twin air outlets discharge heat from the engine compartment.
The unique rear bumper accommodates twin tail pipes. The bumper’s design enhances airflow control and contributes to better straight-line stability at higher speeds.
The factory-fitted option rear decklid wing-spoiler generates effective downforce.
The grille and trunk lid carry the Ralliart emblem.
The interior uses an elegant deep black color scheme while the dashboard features an ornamentation panel comprising a geometric check pattern and silver pin beading that adds a mechanical taste and gives the cockpit a sporty, high-quality appearance.
The unique instrument cluster dials use matte black faces with white high-contrast graphics for excellent legibility.
The steering wheel and shifter knob are wrapped in luxurious genuine leather. The aluminum accelerator and brake pedals are fitted with non-slip rubber strips.
The front seats keep the occupant securely and comfortably positioned and use high-grip suede-knit upholstery. The shoulder bolster carries the Ralliart tag.
Galant Fortis Ralliart is powered by an intercooler-turbocharged 4B11-type 2.0-liter 16-valve DOHC MIVEC high-performance engine. With the focus on low- to mid-range torque, the engine uses a single-scroll turbocharger. Optimization of the cooling and exhaust systems boosts output to maxima of 177 kW (240 PS) / 6000 rpm and 343 Nm (35.0 kg-m) / 3000 rpm.
Galant Fortis Ralliart is fitted with Mitsubishi’s Twin Clutch SST (Sport Shift Transmission) automated manual transmission that allows the driver both the fun and economy of a manual gearbox plus the convenience and comfort of an automatic transmission. The Twin Clutch SST used on the Lancer Evolution X has been modified for Galant Fortis Ralliart with different ratios for 5th and 6th gears to give improved fuel economy in high-speed cruising on longer trips.
The driver has the choice of two automated shifting modes: NORMAL for maximum fuel economy and comfort in everyday driving; and SPORT with shift characteristics best suited to sportier performance.
Full-time 4WD system
Galant Fortis Ralliart uses a full-time 4WD system comprising a front helical limited slip differential, an Active Center Differential and a mechanical rear LSD. These components as well as Active Stability Control and Anti-lock Braking are all electronically and integrally managed by Mitsubishi’s vehicle dynamics control system to deliver an optimum balance between sure-footed traction and steering feel, cornering and braking performance.
The driver can select between three ACD modes: TARMAC for dry paved surfaces; GRAVEL for wet tarmac or loose unmade surfaces; and SNOW for snow-covered surfaces.
