The six-bolt engine on all Talons built before April 1992 refers to the number of bolts connecting the flywheel to the crankshaft. All 1G Talons built after April 1992.5 received a freer revving 7-bolt engine borrowed from the 1992 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolutions lighter rods and seven-bolt crankshaft.
The Talon,LaserandEclipsewere badge variants using theChrysler D platform, manufactured at the DSM (Diamond Star Motorsjoint venturebetweenChryslerandMitsubishi) manufacturing plant inNormal, Illinois. All three vehicles were mechanically identical (when comparing the same option level) includingenginetransmission, anddrivetrain.
Eagle offered various option packages as well as optional equipment that could be added individually.

Club DSM was an international owners group that at its peak boasted over 3000 members – founded by Todd Day. The annual club meet was at the DSM Shootout which had its first event in 1996 inNorwalk Ohio. The DSM Shootout was regularly sponsored by Buschur Racing and other specialty shops. Legacies of this club reach across the nation and globe.
The last year for the Eagle Talon – as well as theEagledivision ofChrysler- was 1998.

The TSi and TSi AWD models again featured an intercooledturbochargedengine, now replacing the 14B Mitsubishi turbo with aGarrettT25model. Although theT25was a smaller turbo, it spooled faster at a lower rpm resulting in increased low end acceleration performance. The TSi AWD model retained theall-wheel drivedrivetrain system.

The second generation (or 2G) Eagle Talon was introduced in 1995 simultaneously with itsMitsubishi Eclipsecounterpart, while thePlymouth Lasermodel was eliminated. Mechanically, the new Talon andEclipsemodels were almost identical with the engines in the turbocharged versions receiving a modest increase in output thanks to a redesigned intake and exhaust, higher 8.5:1 (vs. 7.8:1) compression pistons, and newturbocharger. The new T25turbocharger, provided byGarrett, had boost increased to 12 psi of peak boost and was smaller than the previousMitsubishibuilt 14b turbo that was on 1G models. The T25 did spool up faster than the previous turbocharger in order to increase the turbo response or reduce turbo lag. The other important change concerned the suspension. While the 1G had MacPherson struts in the front, the 2G had double-wishbone in the front and multilink suspension in the rear. The double wishbone suspension gave the 2G a much better roll-camber curve in the front, allowing for much better handling.
The TSi nameplate appeared onJeepGrand Cherokeefor the 1997 and 1998 model year. The model, which was the sportier among theJeep Grand Cherokeeline-up (with the exception of the 5.9 Limited) featured trim reminiscent of Talons TSi model, including a similar Indigo blue trim and monochromatic scheme found on the Talon. The TSi reappeared once again, as a high-performance model for theChrysler Sebringsedan, for the 2005 and 2006 year model

The 19931994 base model DL wasfront-wheel driveand used a 92-horsepower 1.8L engine (4G37). The ES model (or just the base Talon before 1993) sported anaturally aspirated2.0L 135 hpMitsubishi 4G63 engine. The TSi and TSi AWD models used the same engine but added an14bturbochargerproducing 11.06 psi of peak boost from the factory, resulting in 195 horsepower (145kW) on TSi AWD models. The front-drive TSi produced only 190 hp due to a more restrictive exhaust system, and the automatics produced 180 horsepower (130kW) due to a 13g turbo.

The first generation Talon was released in mid-1989 as a 1990 model and ran through 1994. This era of DSM vehicles is commonly referred to as the first generation, or 1G for short. However, there were two 1G styles. The 1GA models of 19901991 featured pop-up headlights lights and a 6-bolt engine, while the 1GB model of 19921994 featured composite style headlights with integrated turn signals.

For model year 1997, a design update occurred for both the Talon and the Eclipse that is sometimes referred to as2Gb. The update was primarily limited to the non-metal portions of the car. The front and rear fascias were heavily revised to incorporate more aggressive looking features. At the front, a larger air intake was created and the Eagle emblem was enlarged and embossed into the center of the bumper cap (as opposed to a badge that inset into a similarly shaped hole). At the rear, a newhigh-mount spoilerwas introduced that projected further into the airstream, replacing the flush-mounted sickle spoiler. Added plastic moldings on the bumper caps and doors completed the revisions to the body. Lastly, on the TSi and TSiAWDmodels, the aluminum wheels were increased to 17in (432mm) and incorporated more angles replacing the 16in (406mm) curved 5-spoke wheel. Another important, non-cosmetic change concerned the driveline. There was a slight change in gear ratios and the number of splines on the shaft feeding power to the transfer case was altered.

Cosmetically, differences between the three were found in wheels, availability of colors, tail lights, front and rear bumpers, and spoilers. The Talon featured two-tone body color with a black greenhouse (roof, pillars, door-mounted mirrors) regardless of the body color. The variants featured 5-speed manual or 4-speed automatic transmissions and a hood bulge on the left-hand side of the car in order for camshaft clearance on the4G63engine. The base model DL did not use this engine but still had a bulge as evident in the 1992 Talon brochure. 2nd Generation cars all had such a bulge, even with the inclusion of the 420A engine.

From an aesthetic standpoint, the differences between the Eagle Talon and itsMitsubishiequivalent were somewhat more substantial than exhibited in the first generation models. These differences were most obvious at the rear of the car. For example, the rear fascia of the Talon featured a bumper cap with a dip in the middle to allow for a high-mounted rear license plate; rear light clusters incorporating amber turn signals (theEclipseused red turn signals); reverse lights as part of the main rear tail light clusters (theEclipses reverse lights were mounted separately and lower around the mid-mounted license plate); and a sickle-shaped rear spoiler for the TSi and TSiAWDversion mounted at the base of the rear window that was painted black regardless of body color (theEclipseused a body colored, conventional basket handlespoilermounted on the rear deck). Other differences included the air intake beneath the front bumper, which did not have a body-colored splitter (minor difference), and the absence of side skirts. Also, the hard-top Talon featured a black roof while the Eclipse had a body colored top.

The Eagle Talon has appeared in several video games such as theGran TurismoandForza Motorsportseries. Eagle Talons (along with theirEclipsesiblings) are very popular in the sport-compact tuning realm because of their performance and handling. There is a considerable number of aftermarket companies who offer performance parts for Talons of all years.

In 1994, aconcept carcalled theEagle Jazzwas developed for the 1995 automobile show circuit.It was a sporty sedan with a rounded hatchback tail. Built into that was a hatch-within-a-hatch, so a driver could easily open the rear end to store cargo.It was considered by some to have a strange resemblance to a 4-door Eagle Talon.
