At A Glance: 2013 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution (Press Release)

2013 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution At-A-Glance

With a dynamo of a turbocharged powerplant, sensational handling capability and Mitsubishi’s very advanced Super All-Wheel Control (S-AWC) all-wheel drive system, the 2013 Lancer Evolution is the original ultra-high-performance luxury sports sedan.

The 2013 Lancer Evolution’s miraculous ability to carve corners is largely the result of the Japanese auto manufacturer’s high-tech Super All-Wheel Control (S-AWC) all-wheel drive system that consists of a 4-wheel-drive Active Center Differential (ACD) accompanied by an Active Yaw Control (AYC) rear differential, a helical gear-type limited-slip front differential, Active Stability Control (ASC) and Sport ABS brakes with Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD). Helping the “Lancer Evolution” remain planted to the road are high-grip 245/40R18 low-profile Yokohama ADVAN asymmetrical performance tires wrapped around 18-in. x 8.5-in. wheels (the GSR model receives a set of Enkei cast-alloy rims while the top-flight MR wears BBS® forged-alloy wheels).

Decelerating the Lancer Evolution in a hurry and with aplomb is a capable Brembo braking system consisting of powerful 4-piston front calipers with 13.8-in. rotors and 2-piston rear calipers with 13.0-in. rotors. The upgraded MR model benefits from the use of lightweight two-piece  brake rotors up front that help save 2.9 lbs. of unsprung weight per wheel.

Rapidly propelling the 2013 Lancer Evolution on the highway or down the back straight is the efficacious 291 horsepower 2.0-liter DOHC turbocharged and intercooled 4-cylinder engine. Designated the 4B11 T/C, this engine boasts numerous high-performance design elements including MIVEC variable valve timing for both the intake and exhaust camshafts and a cast-aluminum engine block and head. A key performance characteristic of this exceptional powerplant is its seemingly unending availability of power and torque all the way up to its 7,000 rpm redline.

The 2013 Lancer Evolution GSR includes a number of performance-oriented standard features such as a decisive short-throw 5-speed manual transmission; highly supportive yet very comfortable RECARO® front bucket sport seats, lightweight aluminum roof, fenders and hood; dual exhaust outlets; an aerodynamically-enhancing rear diffuser; and a large and stylish rear spoiler.

Other welcome no-cost amenities included on the GSR model are: FUSE Handsfree Link System™, automatic climate control; leather-wrapped sport steering wheel with cruise and audio controls; remote keyless entry; fog lights; auto-off halogen headlamps; power windows, side mirrors and door locks; and a sweet-sounding 6 speaker 140-watt AM/FM/CD/MP3 audio system with Digital Signal Processing (DSP).

Offering even greater performance, the 2013 Lancer Evolution MR edition adds a technological wonder in the form of an ultra-quick-shifting 6-speed Twin-Clutch Sportronic Shift Transmission (TC-SST) that allows the driver to toggle rapidly through the gears via steering wheel paddle shifters or the shift lever, along with Bilstein® shock absorbers and Eibach® springs; a low-profile rear lip spoiler; and bi-xenon auto off HID headlamps.

Numerous upscale indulgences are available for Mitsubishi Motors’ exotic luxury sports sedan model including a 710-watt Rockford-Fosgate® premium audio system with a 6-CD/MP3-compatible head unit with 9 speakers (including a trunk-mounted 10-in. subwoofer) and a 3-month pre-paid subscription to SIRIUS® satellite radio; leather/suede seating surfaces (including the racing-inspired RECARO® front bucket seats); heated front seats; FAST-Key electronic keyless entry and engine starting system; power glass sunroof; 40GB HDD navigation system with music server and real-time traffic; and an awesome-looking interior LED illumination package.

Every 2013 Lancer Evolution model comes equipped with a comprehensive array of standard safety features including a dual front air bag supplemental restraint system (SRS) with occupant sensors, front seat-mounted side-impact air bags and side curtain air bags, and a driver’s knee air bag.

As comfortable as a daily driver Monday through Friday as it is as a weekend warrior at the local race track, the Lancer Evolution long ago established itself as a sports car legend world-wide, thanks to its blistering acceleration, handling prowess and all-around exciting performance capabilities.
