Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP), also known as "sticker" price, is a recommended selling price that automakers give a new car that is above the invoice price paid by the dealer. It is a price that does not include any options that can be added to a particular car style. When shown as a range, the prices are starting MSRPs, without options, for multiple styles for that model.
This price range reflects the Kelley Blue Book Suggested Retail value for all trim levels, but not necessarily all available options.
The Kelley Blue Book Suggested Retail value represents the amount an auto dealer might ask for a specific vehicle; the actual sale price will vary. A vehicle's popularity, condition, warranty, color and local market conditions are factors involved in determining a final price. The retail value is not a trade-in or private party value.
The Suggested Retail value assumes that the vehicle has been fully reconditioned and has a clean title history. The Suggested Retail value also allows for advertising, sales commissions, insurance and other costs of doing business as a dealer. Most vehicles offered at this price have passed an inspection, and some may carry a warranty. Vehicle mileage is assumed to be normal or below normal.

The midsize Galant sedan is offered only with four-cylinder power. It competes with the Chevrolet Malibu, Honda Accord and Toyota Camry. It is available in two trims: the base ES and top-of-the-line SE.
New for 2011 A half-inch reduction in ride height this year provides a sleeker stance and a slight increase in fuel economy, Mitsubishi says, though EPA gas mileage figures remain unchanged. Both the ES and SE have more chrome molding, and the SE adds a standard power moonroof.
Exterior The Galant's wide grille now has a new silver-painted mesh design and is flanked by rectangular headlights. Exterior features include:
Standard daytime running lights
Standard auto-off headlights
Standard 16-inch steel wheels
SE has fog lights, 18-inch alloy wheels and chrome tailpipe
Interior Inside, the five-seat Galant's center control panel is busy-looking. For a midsize sedan, the Galant's backseat is notably uncomfortable — the bottom cushion doesn't provide much thigh support. Interior features include:
Standard manual air conditioning
Available automatic climate control
Standard auxiliary jack for MP3 players
SE has moonroof, navigation system, heated front seats and backup camera
Rockford Fosgate premium stereo with steering-wheel audio controls on SE
Leather upholstery optional on SE
Under the Hood The front-drive Galant has one powertrain, a 2.4-liter four-cylinder teamed with a four-speed automatic. Mechanical features include:
