The Eagle Talon of the second generation was introduced in 1995 simultaneously with its sister model Mitsubishi Eclipse.
Mechanically, the new Talon and Eclipse models almost matched the turbocharged models of the 1G. They added some power as they got modified intake manifolds and exhaust headers, as well as new turbochargers. The new T25 turbocharger from Garrett had a boost pressure of 0.8 bar (12 psi) and was smaller than that installed in the 1G of the Mitsubishi Eclipse. The T25 also reacted faster to gas shocks.
The appearance of the new Eagle Talon was more different from that of the Mitsubishi Eclipse, as was the case with the first generation. Especially from the back this could be seen. Thus, the rear view of the Talon had a bumper with center lowering, which left room for a top mounted license plate, the flashing lights were yellow (red on the Mitsubishi) and the reversing lights were integrated into the tail light block (in the center next to the license plate on Mitsubishi). The spoilers for the TSi and TSi AWD versions at the bottom of the rear window were always black and sickle-shaped on the Talon, while the Eclipse had body-painted basket handle spoilers on the back of the car. Other differences included the grille under the front bumper, which had no webs in body color, and the lack of side panels.
In 1997, Talon and Eclipse were revised, so the new models are often referred to as 2Gb. The update mainly related to the non-metallic parts of the car. Front and rear views have been significantly redesigned to look more aggressive. In front, the air intake and the Eagle logo were enlarged. This logo was now in the middle of the bumper. The rear got a new, high-build spoiler, which continued into the air flow and replaced the old crescent-shaped spoiler. Additional plastic parts on the doors and on the bumpers completed the bodywork modifications. Finally, new aluminum wheels replaced the old 5-spoke wheels.
In 1998, the Talon was the last model of the slowly disappearing Eagle brand. The 1998 model is also the rarest.Although there was a prototype called the Eagle Jazz , which looked very much like a four-door Eagle Talon, Chrysler stopped advertising for the brand and then its production this year.
- ESI: 2.0 liters - four-cylinder in-line engine (420A / ECH), 103 kW (140 hp) at 6000 rpm . and 176 Nm at 4800 rpm
- TSi manual transmission: 2.0 liter, four cylinder in-line engine with a turbocharger (4G63), 156 kW (210 hp) at 6000 rpm and 290 Nm at 3000 rpm
- TSi with automatic transmission: 2.0 liter, four cylinder in-line engine with a turbocharger (4G63), 151 kW (205 hp) at 6000 rpm and 298 Nm at 3000 rpm
Again, the TSi and TSi AWD models had a supercharged intercooled engine that replaced the Mitsubishi 1G turbocharger with a Garrett T25 charger. Although the T25 was a smaller turbocharger, it turned higher at lower engine speeds, resulting in higher vehicle acceleration. The TSi AWD again had four-wheel drive.
The designation TSi (which was the only equipment variant for the Talon in 1998) existed in the model years 1997 and 1998 for the Jeep Grand Cherokee. The sportier model of the Jeep Grand Cherokee (with the exception of the 5.9-liter) had the equipment of the Talon TSi model with the indigo-blue trim and the monochrome paint. In the years 2005 and 2006 there was again a TSi as a high performance model of the Chrysler Sebring .
