1971 Mitsubishi Debonair

Due to production cost, the Debonair’s previous 2.0-litre “KE64” engine is replaced from September 1970 by another six-cylinder block, the SOHC short-stroke “Saturn Six” of similar displacement, based on widely-produced four-cylinders. This new Debonair Executive enjoys higher performance thanks to this more potent engine.
