2020 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross Diesel: New 2.2 DiD Engine
2020 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross Diesel, thanks to the new engine, promises to have more torque and less polluting emissions. The S-AWC system improves cornering precision and stability on straight and lane changes.
The Eclipse Cross by Mitsubishi is evolving and in its European version, it will be available with some substantial modifications. In particular, after the introduction of the 1.5 petrol, the 2.2-liter diesel version is coming.
2020 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross Diesel All New Engine
The new Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross has been designed to meet the needs of those markets where the demand for diesel vehicles, such as Austria, Germany, and Italy, is still strong. The house has chosen to offer a vehicle with a strong dynamism, in line with its SUV coupé personality, combining three elements such as the new tuning of the MIVEC “4N1” diesel engine with low compression ratio, the new eight-speed automatic transmission. gear specific to this model and the four-wheel drive Super-All Wheel Control.
Derived from the 4N1 unit with double overhead camshaft, 4 cylinders 16 common rail direct injection valves , low compression ratio, all aluminum, the 2020 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross Diesel will be the first diesel in the world to be equipped with timing variable valves to further reduce friction between moving parts and improve the reactivity of the injection system. The advantages are represented by a greater economy of consumption, less polluting emissions, and mechanical noises, but with an increase in torque up to 388Nm at 2000 rpm. The new eight-speed multi-stage automatic transmission, thanks to an extended range of close ratios, offers brilliant performance.
Furthermore, the use of a solenoid oil pump guarantees the necessary oil pressure at the clutch, even when the vehicle is stationary, allowing immediate restarts and optimizing the functionality of the Auto Stop & Go, which in turn reduces fuel consumption. This water-cooled automatic transmission is combined with other systems that improve maneuverability: hill starts assistance, downhill speed control system, accelerator release control, and Rapid Kick-Down Control.
2020 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross Diesel is equipped with the S-AWC system that manages the driving force and braking power on the four wheels, in particular through the distribution of torque between left and right wheels. Initially, the all-wheel drive delivers the optimal torque to the rear axle based on the accelerator input, vehicle speed and driving conditions. The S-AWC integrates an active yaw control system into an all-wheel drive (AYC) activated by brakes to accurately detect pilot inputs and vehicle behavior using data provided by sensors on steering, yaw, engine torque, braking force and wheel speed. In essence, the S-AWC improves directional precision in cornering, vehicle stability on straight lines and lane changes.
