Three trims were available for Japan, Asia and Europe. What this switch actually does is quite simple. No US-spec Evolution model prior to the Evo X has active yaw control, including the 2006 Evolution IX. White is rare and Red was very rare. The 2005 US spec RS and GSR have the ACD standard, and the front helical limited-slip differential is now standard on all models. The MR FQ-360 was also released in limited numbers (only 200) in the last year of production. It had special production badges that were put on the center console indicating which number it is of the 1,600 made for the U.S. [needs update]. The differential is geared at 50:50 and cannot be changed by the push of a button. I can’t think of any reason as to why Mitsubishi didn’t at least update the interior to stay with the times over the years. This is a fun car. Rarity: Approximately 50% of these cars had the 6 speed manual transmissions combined with the Evo IX MIVEC engine whilst the remaining wagons were GT-A versions. It also featured a black roof, "Final Edition" emblems, darker Enkei wheels and power was increased from 291 hp to 303 hp. Stay tuned.." Industry analysts would read the statement as indirectly hinting that the Evolution nameplate will remain, but is likely to be an environmentally friendly powertrain (possibly electric or hybrid), inline with increasingly stringent emission and environmental regulations. (JDM version), the American market version will have slightly more. You can’t see the smile, but you feel it. The pistons were lighter with a smaller skirt area. and as a result, the 10,000 Evolution IVs produced all sold quickly. [40] The S-AWC uses torque vectoring technology to send different amounts of torque to the rear wheels. A 2015 model in this waning half of 2016. The boost, timing, and tuning are also significantly lower than its Japanese counterpart, allowing it to adhere to the strict emissions regulations of the United States. The RS also had wind-up windows, optional air conditioning in some models, and a few extra brace bars to strengthen the chassis, one behind the front grille and another across the boot floor, and an aluminum rear strut tower brace. In addition, it will determine how much locking force the ACD will exhibit on the clutch pack and center differential. Evo. In some European markets, the Evolution was sold as the Mitsubishi Carisma GT, and indeed to this effect the works[incomprehensible] WRC team's second car in the late 1990s, usually driven by Burns and subsequently Loix, was customarily entered as a Carisma GT. The subsequent Evolution Lancer models all featured rear mechanical plate type LSD's. Mitsubishi could really build something quite spectacular on the Evo X’s old bones. [39], The Lancer Evolution X sedan features a newly designed 4B11T 1,998 cc (2.0 L) turbocharged, all-aluminium alloy GEMA Inline-four engine. I promise you that anyone who gets behind the wheel of one will crack a smile. The Final Edition is $37,995, and the one I tested came to $41,295. It’s pretty nice in there! Not for tech that old and for an interior like that. The interior feels ancient. It was replaced by the Twin Clutch SST gearbox since the introduction of Evolution X. The American 2003 and 2004 GSRs are without the helical limited-slip front differential and 6-speed manual transmission. And it will pluck at the attention of every cop on the road. Although the US versions did not come with the AYC, it did come with a rear 1.5way clutch type LSD (limited-slip differential), which limits the slip from both rear wheels causing less traction loss of the rear wheels. To the standard model, the Sun, Sound and Leather package added a power sunroof, HID xenon headlamps with integrated fog lights, a slightly different stereo head unit (with no integral amplifier), slightly upgraded speakers in the front doors and parcel shelf, a 4.1-channel amplifier under the driver's seat, a powered, trunk-mounted Infinity subwoofer, black leather seating surfaces, leather-trimmed door panels, slightly revised center armrests in the front and rear, and separate rear side headrests. Power output was increased to 256 PS (188 kW; 252 hp) from the same engine and torque was unchanged for both GSR and RS models. The Lancer platform was completely changed in 1996, and along with it, the Evolution, which had become extremely popular throughout the world. [5] 5,000 of the first generation Evolutions were sold between 1992 and 1993. There is close to zero body roll in the chassis, so the car can change direction quicker than a fly buzzing around a summer barbecue. The MR Edition also received engine updates and reliability changes, the engine updates include larger turbo diameter mouth, updated cam profiles, lighter balance shafts and changed from single wastegate solenoid to dual solenoid. I don’t need an interior like a Mercedes S-Class has, where you can change the ambient lighting to resemble a nightclub and where there is a special vent that makes sure my kneecaps are the coolest part of my body (kidding). Various versions available in other markets, particularly the UK, have official power outputs up to 446 PS (328 kW; 440 hp). Proton Motors of Malaysia raced Evolution III's, Evolution V's (most notable with Proton 1784 where Malaysian driver Karamjit Singh won the 2002 Production Car WRC) and an Evolution VII as the Proton PERT in various Asia-Pacific Rally Championship and APAC rally series.
