The Mitsubishi RVR

Posted under Uncategorized on Tuesday, 10 April 2012 by admin

The Mitsubishi RVR is Mitsubishi Motors compact MPV introduced in 1991, with the second generation released in 2002, and a compact crossover which was introduced in 2010.

The RVR was Mitsubishi#8217;s Recreational Vehicle debut during the Japanese economic boom. The cars were sold at the Mitsubishi Dealership chain called (Japanese: Car Plaza). RVR is an acronym for Recreation Vehicle Runner. In addition, the original logo had a Cyrillic Я on the first letter. It had a convenient size passenger cabin and spacious 4-5 person capacity with a youth-oriented approach.

Television commercials in Japan used Bugs Bunny and Daffy Duck as spokespeople. [1] It was also developed and released during Japan#8217;s #8220;bubble economy#8221;, and had gained popularity due to its ease of use sliding door on the passenger side.

It was a tall wagon, off-road model that sought awareness towards #8220;sports gear#8221; or outdoor lifestyles to other companies, similar to an approach used for the introduction of the Honda City, allowing drivers to setting their own routes, and it had an especially good sales record in the beginning, even with the decline of the RV sales boom. Unfortunately due to declining sales, it was discontinued in August 2002.

The reintroduction of the #8220;Sports Gear#8221; RVR nameplate is an attempt to inherit the popularity of the first generation vehicle, and it was released in Japan on February 17, 2010. Gone is the rear sliding door, due to the current perception that SUVs have conventional doors, and sliding doors are typically installed on family vehicles. The RVR logo does not use the inverted Cyrillic Я on the first letter.

The trim level that is typically used is the grade name #8220;Sports Gear#8221;, a move Mitsubishi is reintroducing, such as Airtrek and Grandis.

The first RVR, introduced February 1991, is a compact MPV, manufactured between 1991 and 2002. It was known as the Mitsubishi Space Runner in Europe and Mitsubishi Expo LRV in the United States, while export markets in Asia and Oceania used the Japanese market name. The RVR was also sold by Chrysler as the Dodge/Plymouth Colt Wagon and Eagle Summit Wagon captive imports in North America.[1] Its #8220;tall wagon#8221; appearance reflected a popular appearance which found favor with many international manufacturers, which can trace their beginnings to the 1978 concept car Lancia Megagamma.

The Hyper Sports Gear R trim package in Japan used the drivetrain of the first Mitsubishi Galant VR-4; the 4G63T 2.0 L 16V DOHC turbo straight-4 mated to either a four-speed auto or a five speed manual which was not offered in North America. Open front and rear differentials were used on vehicles equipped with 4WD. Power output was rated at 170–184 kW (231–250 PS; 228–247 hp).

In Japan, the RVR saw competition from the Nissan Rasheen, the Toyota RAV4, the Honda CR-V, the Subaru Forester, and the Suzuki Escudo.

The RVR was essentially a second generation Mitsubishi Chariot with a shortened chassis and sharing the components of the longer vehicle, with two rows of seats, and a tall wagon SUV equipped with a sliding door on the passenger side, similar to the Toyota Raum and Nissan Prairie. There was no door for the rear passengers behind the driver; only one sliding door was installed on the passenger side for all trim levels, and for all vehiches sold internationally.

This was a different configuration from the larger Chariot in that the longer vehicle had conventional doors on both sides of the vehicle. Also, the Mitsubishi sliding door latched to a #8220;B#8221; pillar, whereas the Toyota and Nissan vehicles didn#8217;t. The rear windows didn#8217;t retract into the doors or body, instead they poped out at the back edge of the window.

The rear windows on the longer Chariot did retract into the doors.

The fuel tank access door was installed on the right side for all versions sold internationally, however, for vehicles where the driver was on the left side, and the sliding door was on the right side, care needed to be taken to avoid opening the sliding door when fuel was being added to the fuel tank.

The standard installed fixed position rear bench seat arrangement could accommodate three persons and the seatbacks had a 50:50 split: the seat backs could be folded flat upon the seats, and then the seat cushion could be detached from the rear and folded up and forward towards the front seats, leaving a flat floor for large cargo items.

The optional sliding bench rear seats could accommodate three people, with the setup allowing rear seat passengers additional leg room by sliding the entire rear seat assembly back. Depending on seating arrangements, the rear seats can then produce a large enough interior space by sliding the seats completely forward, then extending the seatbacks completely flat.

Originally installed with a naturally aspirated 2.0L/1.8L gasoline engine, it was later introduced with a diesel turbo engine model thereafter. The mid-model sports model with a detune type of turbo engine 4G63 is also carried on the Lancer Evolution its #8220;X3#8243; and #8220;Super Sport Gear#8221; and offered an optional sliding metal sunroof. Finally and most powerful model, #8220;Hyper Sports Gear#8221; was added in January 1997.

Hyper Sports Gear Engine is the same as the Lancer Evolution, Lancer Evolution high calling as a version of RV.

Due to platform sharing with the longer Chariot, and the benefit of development time, many of the mechanical components from past Galant contributions with new mechanism improvements, the RVR is basically reliable and robust. However, the individual is about 60,000 km Automatic Transmission capable, greet life with a plug cord about three years, would upset the sensors and around the throttle servo mechanism (such as not idling as symptoms appear), etc.

Automatic Transmission shift lock was mechanism instead of an electrical control, a unique method that deregulation was mechanically wire extending from the brake pedal. This was also the advantage of being unaffected by the battery.
