The GS platform (also known as "Project Global" by Mitsubishi) is a compact car platform co-developed by Mitsubishi Motors and DaimlerChrysler, which underpins the companies' compact cars. After DaimlerChrysler and Mitsubishi went their separate ways in 2004, DaimlerChrysler made substantial changes to the platform.[1] The modified GS platform is now called JS platform by DCX for mid-size cars and PM/MK for compact cars. All cars from Mitsubishi using the GS platform are made in Japan with the exception of the RVR/Outlander Sport, which is now produced at the former Diamond-Star Motors plant in Normal, Illinois, USA. Mitsubishi's first GS platform car was the 2005 Mitsubishi Outlander crossover SUV. PM/MK vehicles from Chrysler are assembled at Belvidere Assembly in Belvidere, Illinois (Dodge Caliber and Jeep Compass) and JS Vehicles were produced at the Sterling Heights Assembly (Chrysler 200 and Dodge Avenger). Chrysler stated that the 200's predecessor, the Chrysler Sebring, and Avenger were not using the GS platform, though that was their starting point.[2]
