2017 Lancer efficiency

If you’re still looking for a New Year’s resolution, there’s still time. Consider getting the new 2017 Mitsubishi Lancer. This model comes with excellent fuel economy and lower emissions—which is great for the environment—and it’s also affordable and sporty. Treat yourself while also reducing your carbon footprint. What could be a better New Year’s resolution?

 

According to Mitsubishi, the 2017 Lancer efficiency is 27/34 mpg city/highway. Under the hood is a powerful 2.0-liter MIVEC engine that generates up to 148 horsepower. You can also opt for the 2.4-liter engine, though it doesn’t get the same fuel economy as the 2.0-liter. In addition to MIVEC engine technology, you can also get a continuously variable transmission to save on gas.

 

The new Mitsubishi Lancer also comes with an electronically controlled All-Wheel Control (AWC) system that monitors your driving and actively transfers power to wheels as needed. This means you can drive more effectively on slippery surfaces like gravel, dirt, and snow.

 

The 2017 Mitsubishi Lancer is great for virtually any driver. If you were thinking about getting a new car, now is the time to buy. The Lancer comes with the latest features, an eco-friendly design, and a truly enjoyable ride. Test drive this model today.

Bold Changes for the 2016 Mitsubishi Lancer

The Lancer, Mitsubishi’s bold take on the compact car, has been redesigned for the 2016 year. Lots of aesthetic and strategic improvements have been introduced, sure to help the Mitsubishi Lancer remain as viable an option as it’s ever been for those buyers interested in capability, practicality and affordability.

Changes for the 2016 Mitsubishi Lancer include updated standard interior features. For the ES trim level, drivers can now enjoy the FUSE Hands-free Link System, providing crisp and reliable smartphone integration, as well as automatic air condition climate control.

The top trim level GT features all the toys to make for an exceptionally sporty and fun drive. There is sport-tuned suspension and larger disc brakes. The exterior gets some enhancements too with the addition of 18 inch two-tone alloy wheels, sunroof, and rear spoiler.

As a press release from Mitsubishi reminds us, the Mitsubishi Lancer has a long history of being one of the safest cars on the road. Including for the 2015 model year, the Lancer has consistently been recognized as an IIHS “Top Safety Pick.” The latest Lancer stands to continue that tradition with the inclusion of standard features like Reinforced Impact Safety Evolution (RISE) safety body construction system.

Bowing Out Loud: Mitsubishi Lancer Evo Final Edition

The Lancer Evo final edition is sad to see, but there have been some good times.

We bid a final farewell to this Mitsubishi monster.

It’s time to say goodbye to the beloved Mitsubishi monster we’ve come to know and love as the Lancer Evolution. Mitsubishi began taking orders in the Japanese market for the high performance sedan’s Final Edition. Currently listing at just over $33,000 (at current exchange rates), the Lancer Evo Final Edition is generating quite a bit of buzz stateside.

10 generations of the turbocharged all-wheel drive sedan have touched hearts around the world so it really is no surprise the Final Edition is drawing attention. The discontinuation marks Mitsubishi’s move into the SUV and crossover markets. While the automaker did debut a 480 hp Evo at the Tokyo Auto Salon earlier this year, the Final Edition isn’t that powerful.

The Final Edition’s 2L turbocharged engine will rock sodium-filled exhaust valves for maximum output at high engine speeds. Expect a smoother ride if you do manage to get behind the wheel of a Final Edition model – Bilstein shocks, Eibach springs, and Brembo two-piece ventilated front brake discs will roll out on high performance tires.

Inside you can expect black leather with red stitching. On the center console you’ll find something special and limited to only the Final Edition. A plaque with the vehicle’s serial will serve as both identification and in memory of the Lancer Evolution.

There’s no word on when the United States will see open ordering for the Final Edition but you can expect the high performance sedan to bow out on all cylinders.
