Badging Differences

Plymouth Laser and Eagle Talon models had slightly lower levels of standard equipment, so they were a little cheaper to buy and could weigh a bit less.

The Plymouth Laser was only made between 90-93 model years. It featured no lower-body cladding. The base Laser had the 1.8 liter motor. Laser RS models were available with either the DOCH 2.0 or the DOCH 2.0 turbo engines (all years) and AWD (92-94 only).

Mitsubishi Eclipse came in several flavors. The base model had the 93-horsepower 1.8-liter SOHC motor. The next step up was the Eclipse RS, which had a 2.0 DOHC non-turbo motor with 135 horsepower. The top levels were the GS Turbo and the GSX, which were FWD and AWD cars with the turbo 195-horsepower 2.0 DOHC motor. They also had full ground-effects plastic parts on the bottom, alloy rims and fog lamps.

Eagle Talons were base model (1.8-liter SOHC) DL, ES, ESi (some had the DOHC 135 hp motor). The TSi turbo came in FWD and AWD styles, with the same cosmetics, with ground effects, spoilers, alloy wheels and fog lamps.
