As you have probably heard, we will be saying “Bon Voyage” when the last Mitsubishi Lancer rolls off production lines in August, as Mitsubishi will be discontinuing the cult classic car in favor of an SUV strategy. While we at Nissan of Lumberton are sad to see the Lancer go, we’ve recently learned that Mitsubishi will offer a final 2017 Mitsubishi Lancer Limited Edition to say goodbye.
According to The News Wheel, the special edition Lancer will slot right above the ES trim (the Lancer’s base model) and will boast a number of unique features, such as black painted exterior finished on the upper front grille garnish, roof, door mirrors, fender garnish, and the 16-inch wheels. The 2017 Mitsubishi Lancer Limited Edition will also feature a sunroom and special badging.
Inside, the Lancer Limited Edition model will get unique black fabric and red stitching for the door trim, arm rest, steering wheel, shift knob, and handbrake. Other design elements include the gloss black finishing, black headliner, and aluminum pedals, while tech features include Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ compatibility via the 6.5-inch Display Audio System.
“The Lancer has a long-standing tradition of providing consumers unparalleled value at an attractive price, so it was only fitting we pay tribute to the sedan with a Limited Edition trim offering,” remarked Don Swearingen, executive vice president and chief operating officer at Mitsubishi Motors North America. “With the addition of updated styling and advanced technology features, the Limited Edition Lancer is set to appeal to consumers who prioritize aesthetics and enjoy a connected car experience.”

Now coming with a standard rearview camera, the 2017 Mitsubishi Lancer has reached a new level.
The 2017 Mitsubishi Lancer has earned a four star safety rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), making it one of the safest new sedans on the road, adding to a long list of reasons why the new Lancer is an excellent option for any driver.
The NHTSA gave the new Lancer four stars in the front, side, and rollover tests, which simulate the cars response in the event of a collision. With these three tests, the NHTSA can accurately predict how a driver or passenger would fare if such an event would occur.
The new Mitsubishi Lancer comes standard with an impressive list of safety features, including seven airbags, a driver-side knee airbag, antilock brakes, electronic stability control, and traction control. And best of all, the model now comes standard with a rearview camera for all trim levels.
The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) has not rated the new Mitsubishi Lancer yet, but it’s safe to assume that their Mitsubishi Lancer safety rating will be similar to that of the NHTSA.
While we eagerly await the 2017 Lancer to arrive here at Biggers Mitsubishi, head over to our website and to learn more about the safety features on the current 2016 Mitsubishi Lancer? Contact us or visit us anytime at Biggers Mitsubishi to take one out on a test drive.
If you’re like us here at Biggers Mitsubishi, the Lancer EVO X is probably one of your favorite vehicles of all time. Take not that we said “vehicles” and not just simply “sports cars.” The Lancer is nothing short of a classic. But all good things must come to an end, and it’s now time for the Lancer to drive off into the horizon.
However, before it’s all over, though, we’ll get to see a couple limited production runs of the beautiful Lancer Final Edition—Mitsubishi’s love-letter-like goodbye to the popular model. The Final Edition, which will first hit the market in Japan, impresses right from the first glimpse of its amped-up exterior. It has a new black chrome grille, black trim all around, and a wicked rear spoiler.
As far as performance goes, the Final Edition is no 500-horsepower monster, but it does manage to tweak and improve the vehicle’s formula. For example, it has Bilstein shocks, Brembo brakes, special new wheels, and more to give you the best driving experience possible.
Mitsubishi will only make 1,000 of these Final Edition models for Japan, and we expect a similar-sized run here in the States. Check back with us on the blog for more updates on the Lancer’s availability soon. Also, come see us to check out all the excellent vehicles in our inventory—especially the brand-new Outlander—today.
Mitsubushi has announced that the final version of the Lancer Evolution X will appear at the Tokyo Auto Salon next month. The limited edition 2016 Lancer Evolution X Final Concept is the last model of the Lancer Evo X line and will only be released in a small number of units.
It’s understandable that Mitsubishi would want to create one last edition of the Evolution X as a tribute to the line, which was introduced in since October of 2007, before it quietly retires. The company will proudly show it off at the Tokyo Auto Salon in January.
The Final Concept model will have an engine that is both turbocharged and intercooled. Additionally, the vehicle will contain new features that push up the power to 473 bhp, while both a five-speed manual gearbox and all-wheel drive will be used in the car.
The 2016 Lancer Evo X Final Concept will be hard to get and has a long time to go before it’s available in commercial markets, so in the meantime, come visit us at Biggers Mitsubishi to find a car that’s right for you.
Ever since the announcement that the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution would be no more, customers have been clamoring all over the country, including at Biggers Mitsubishi, to get their hands on the 2015 model.
Fortunately, the automaker is giving everyone another chance to add the legendary car to their garage with a Lancer Evolution Final Edition, which will come with several performance upgrades over the 10th generation model.
Details, you ask? According to Don Swearingen, executive vice president at Mitsubishi, it’ll be a GSR five-speed with “more horsepower, some suspension tuning, and some bits and pieces that are still being finalized.”
That’s on top of the turbocharged and intercooled DOHC 16-valve four-cylinder 2.0-liter engine that the 2015 model already packs, which cranks out 291 hp and 300 lb-ft of torque.
About 2,000 units of the special-edition will be available. If you planned on getting a 2015 Lancer Evolution, you might want to wait for this one!
