The Mitsubishi Galant is an automobile made by Mitsubishi Motors since 1969. The name came from the French word galant, meaning "chivalrous". It began as a compact sedan, but over during its life has become a larger mid-size car. At first is was only made in Japan, but since 1994 the American market has been supplied by vehicles assembled at the former Diamond-Star Motors (DSM) facility in Normal, Illinois. Production ceased in 2012.
