The Dodgubishi Avengclipse Completes Operation DownfallS

Chrysler and Mitsubishi have been technological partners for years, providing platforms and engines for each other even after Daimler dropped Mitsubishi a few years ago (now Chrysler hearts Nissan). The most notable models in recent memory were the Mitsubishi 3000GT/Dodge Stealth duo and the Plymouth Laser/Eagle Talon/Mitsubishi Eclipse 1G trio. By the time the venerable second generation Mitsubishi launched, Eagle and Plymouth were on the outs. Needing a sports coupe, they launched the Dodge Avenger on a lengthened 2G Eclipse platform. Apparently, one of our neighbors decided to make a commentary on this by combining the two in what is, we're told, not a completely unusual swap.
