A quick look at the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross should remind onlookers of the vehicle’s heritage before it became a crossover. The Mitsubishi Eclipse may be gone, but it lives on as a small crossover SUV, and it shows in the dynamic body lines that give it far more visual character than any other Mitsubishi currently available. So it has the Eclipse name and the body lines, but does it have the engine power that name used to boast? Read the rest of this entry to learn more about its engine specifications!
How Much Horsepower Does the 2020 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross Have?
Thanks to the 1.5L DOHC MIVEC turbocharged inline 4-cylinder engine, the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross can reach a maximum of 152 Horsepower at 5,500 RPM. That’s a good degree of horsepower for a smaller SUV, but don’t assume it’s ready to take on supercars on the track. The horsepower is easily accessible thanks to the turbocharger. After all, this is an SUV, not a sports car, so if the horsepower is less than you thought, think of the Eclipse Cross as a stylistic interpretation of the old Eclipse.
How Much Torque Does the 2020 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross Have?
The 2020 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross really shines in this category. Where it may seem a little low in terms of horsepower, it balances things out with 184 lb-ft of torque between 2,000 and 3,500 RPM. That should be more than enough to push the Eclipse Cross beyond what would often be a barrier for other compact crossovers.

Conquer gravel, light mud, and sand with the 2020 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross and you are sure to surprise just about every doubter.
