The 2011 Mitsubishi Lancer is definitely a step up from its previous year's model. This year the 2011 Lancer's main version will be its Ralliart edition that comes turbocharged. The 2011 sports a four-cylinder engine that cranks out 242-horsepower (5 more hp than 2010 model) at 258 lb-ft of torque. This means that the 2011 Lancer is capable of going from zero to 60 in 5.4 seconds. The 2011 is also offered with a 5-speed transmission, and a TC-SST dual-clutch gearbox.
With a base price of less than $26k, the 2011 Lancer comes with standard 18-by-8.5 inch Enkei wheels that will carry the 245/40R18 Yokohama ADVAN tires. This has resulted in bigger wheels, and larger fenders for the 2011 Lancer model. The 2011 is also 90 lbs lighter than the 2010.
