Having been discontinued in many markets around the world, the Lancer Evolution will still be available in the U.S. in 2015 with a number of small upgrades.

The new-for-2015 model year highlights include:

All Models

  • New heated side view mirrors with turn indicators and drop cup holder with lid

GSR Model

  • New Premium Package includes Sight and Sound Package plus leather seating, power glass sunroof, heated front seats, sound dampening enhancement and piano-black front console box with lids

MR Model

  • 9 speaker 710-watt Rockford Fosgate premium sound system
  • FAST-key entry system
  • Auto dimming rearview mirror
  • Rain-sensing wipers
  • Auto on/off headlights
  • Color-keyed heat extractor vents, bright radiator front grille and beltline molding
  • Sound dampening enhancement
  • Piano-black front console box with lids

The 2015 Lancer Evolution's standard features include Mitsubishi Motors' convenient and user-friendly FUSE Hands-Free Link System that allows users to wirelessly connect to their Bluetooth-enabled cell phone, iPod or USB drive by using voice commands; automatic climate control; leather-wrapped sport steering wheel with cruise and audio controls; an aerodynamically-enhancing rear diffuser; a pronounced rear deck lid spoiler (standard on GSR) or a lower-profile rear lip spoiler (standard on MR).

291-Horsepower Turbo Powerplant

Based on the design that powered Finnish racing legend Tommi Makinen to four straight titles in the grueling World Rally Championship (WRC), the turbocharged and intercooled DOHC 16-valve 4-cylinder 2.0-liter engine found beneath the hood of every 2015 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution model delivers instantaneous power and torque at virtually any rpm within the powerband.

Consisting of a reinforced cast-aluminum block and an aluminum cylinder head and fitted with the latest edition of Mitsubishi Motors' innovative MIVEC variable valve-timing system, this impressive engine's architecture features a "square" design as both its bore and stroke measure an equal 86.0 mm, accompanied by a compression ratio of 9.0:1.

The power output from this whirlwind of an engine is rated at 291 horsepower at 6,500 rpm with a full 300 lb-ft of torque starting at the 4,000 rpm level.

The Lancer Evolution's distinctive and throaty exhaust note is due to the free-flowing dual exhaust outlets. The stainless steel exhaust manifold and turbocharger are located at the rear of the transversely-mounted engine and close to the firewall, which helps to improve weight distribution.
