Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution X is the tenth generation Lancer. Mitsubishi make big changes to the latest evolution.
(JDM version), the American market version will have slightly more. The Lancer Evolution X MR, with 6-speed Twin Clutch Sportronic Shift Transmission (TC-SST). The other version is the GSR which will have a 5-speed manual transmission system. The car has also a new full-time four-wheel drive system named S-AWC (Super All Wheel Control), an advanced version of Mitsubishi’s AWC system used in previous generations. The S-AWC uses torque vectoring technology to send different amount of torque to any wheel at any given time.
Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution X sedan features a newly designed 4B11T 2.0L (1998cc) turbocharged, all-aluminium inline-4 engine.
It also features Mitsubishi’s new sequential semi-automatic six speed SST twin-clutch transmission with steering-mounted magnesium alloy shift paddles. It has replaced the Tiptronic automatic transmission, hence the SST version replaced the GT-A version (which was used in Evolution VII and Evolution IX Wagon).
The S-AWC system, which regulates torque and braking at each wheel includes a bevy of acronyms: ASC (Active Stability Control), ACD (Active Center Differential), AYC (Active Yaw Control) and Sport ABS, an ABS system designed for aggressive driving.
The Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution X is more sophisticated, involving and technologically-advanced than ever before. It incorporates every bit of knowledge Mitsubishi Motors has gained through creation of the previous nine generations of Lancer Evolution and from decades of competing successfully at the highest levels of international rallying.
