2015 will be the Lancer Evo's final year of production.
Already discontinued in many markets across the world, the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution has been granted a temporary stay of execution here in the US, with the carmaker confirming 2015 will be the final year of production for its flagship performance model. Ensuring it bows out gracefully, Mitsubishi has applied some minor updates to the Lancer Evo, including a new cup holder and revised side mirrors with integrated turn signals.
The Evo GSR receives a new Premium Package, including heated front seats, leather upholstery, power sunroof and sound deadening materials, while the range-topping Evo MR gets automatic headlights, additional chrome trim, rain-sensing windshield wipers, passive entry, and a nine-speaker Rockford Fosgate sound system. Power continues to come from a 2.0-liter turbo-four rated at 291 hp and 300 lb-ft of torque connected to either a five-speed manual or a six-speed dual-clutch and AWD system.
