much-anticipated, all-new 2018 Eclipse Cross CUV started to arrive in
February, and will be at dealerships nationwide this month.

Mitsubishi's sales momentum continues, and only looks to get stronger
with the arrival of the Eclipse Cross," said Don Swearingen, executive
vice president and chief operating officer, MMNA. "We are seeing
tremendous demand for Mitsubishi CUVs in our showroom and our dealer
