As more and more models enter the JNC fold, we can see a lineage forming under nameplates that span several decades. Sometimes you can track the rise (or fall) of these nameplates as the design direction or company portfolio evolves over time. Still, there are some nameplates that have continued to consistently deliver on their purpose, whether it be for a sporty drive in the hills; or climbing up them on a new path. Tell us:
What JNC model has been the most consistent?
The most entertaining comment by next Monday will receive a prize. Scroll down to see the winner of last week’s QotW, “How should Mitsubishi have celebrated 100 years of cars?“
Last week we asked you how Mitsubishi should have celebrated their 100 years in cars. As you know, they are planning to drop a PHEV Outlander powertrain into their first model, a Model A. You responded with some ideas of going all out, staying the course in the name of turning a profit (and turning the company around), etc. I appreciated Yuri‘s analysis on the need to turn some heads and become dominant in the field or Robin‘s suggestion to pay tribute with the current line-up by make a “back-to-basics” vehicle.
Still the suggestion by Cesariojpn could be the best shot at achieving the above and then some. As manufacturers look at bringing back smaller vehicles such as the Bronco, a 2-door Pajero/Montero/Raider could be the ticket! Add in a sporty new Starion and we could have a revitalized Mitsubishi that isn’t afraid to be an enthusiast company again. Plus, the Gorilla Group 8 intro was a kick to watch!
