Engine Description:

The Galant is powered by one of two engines. A responsive 2.4-liter inline four-cylinder engine, standard on the DE and ES trim lines, develops 160 horsepower and 157 pound-feet of torque, thanks to Mitsubishi Innovative Valve timing and lift Electronic Control (MIVEC). Through this system, which makes use of different sized cam lobes to increase lift for continuous power, even the entry-level Galant achieves a high level of performance. But for anyone who equates high power with luxury, the LS and GTS trim lines offer true luxury. Both offer a standard 3.8-liter, 60-degree, SOHC V6 engine that is ideally suited to provide brisk acceleration for spirited driving while maintaining efficient fuel economy. Rated at 230 horsepower at 5250 rpm, with peak torque of 250 pound-feet at 4000 rpm, the Galant’s V6 provides plenty of power and tremendous torque from a wide part of its rev range. The engine’s intake and exhaust events are tuned to achieve maximum torque early in the rev-range where the engine will spend the most time.

Revised ignition timing, and an improved EGR (Exhaust Gas Recovery) rate provide improved fuel economy over the previous V6 engine. Additional rigidity incorporated into the 3.8-liter block and the engine mounting areas has also brought a reduction in NVH (Noise Vibration and Harshness).
