Since 2003, American performance seekers have realized the satisfaction of the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution. For 2008, the tenth global generation model of the Evolution premieres with a Super-All-Wheel Control dynamic handing system propelled through a 2.0-liter turbocharged and intercooled 295 horsepower engine. While the 2008 Lancer Evolution shows off some new compact car design in a highly aggressive form, all Mitsubishi Lancers receive styling details such as the jet fighter air intakes. In place of a conventional geared automatic gearbox, the 2008 Lancer now comes with an optional continuously variable transmission. The Mitsubishi Outlander crossover vehicle can be chosen with a Special Edition model for 2008 equipped with a standard nine-speaker Rockford-Fosgate premium audio unit as well as unique accent touches inside and outside. The Mitsubishi Galant drops the GTS model for 2008 but retains the sport-oriented, V-6 powered Ralliart. Tire pressure monitoring system is now found on all Galant and Eclipse models while the Endeavor now comes standard with the ASTC (Active Stability and Traction Control) system. Several Mitsubishi models with optional navigation systems will have access to industry-first HOV (High-Occupancy Vehicle) lane information.
A compact pickup truck available with an Extended Cab or a Double Cab, the 2008 Mitsubishi Raider is powered by a 3.7L V6 and is available with a four-speed automatic or a six-speed manual transmission.
