An internal combustion engine design by Mitsubishi. Has been in use for many years. It is a 3.0L V6, available in DOHC (naturally aspirated and turbocharged) and SOHC versions.

Mitsubishi made literally millions of the 6G72 engine since its introduction in 1988. This engine in its SOHC, normally-aspirated, 141-HP form was first used by Chrysler in the New Yorker in 1988. Later it was standard equipment in the LeBaron (the most notable version of which was the LeBaron TC in 1990, a combined Chrysler and Maserati effort). The SOHC 6G72 was used in the following cars:

1988-1989 Town & Country
1988-1994 Montero, D50, Mitsubishi Pickup
1988-1995 Voyager, Grand Voyager, Dynasty, Daytona, Duster
1988-1996 Caravan, Grand Caravan
1988-1996 Galant, Sigma
1989-1995 Acclaim, Spirit, Mighty Max, D-50
1991-1995 LeBaron, Saratoga
1992-1995 Diamante

Chrysler and Dodge continue to use the SOHC 6G72 (up to 200 HP and 200 lb-ft torque now) in the Stratus and Sebring coupes. Mitsubishi now uses this successful engine design in the 2000 and newer Eclipse models (SOHC), after having installed the DOHC version in some Diamantes. Unfortunately, the SOHC block is not the same as the DOHC block used in the turbocharged version of the 6G72 in the Mitsubishi 3000GT VR-4 (1991-1999) and in the Dodge Stealth R/T Twin Turbo (1991-1996). Of all the vehicles listed above besides the 3000GT/Stealth, only the Diamante used the DOHC version of the engine. Bummer.
