The 2016 Mitsubishi EVO XI will come with a handful of surprises. The new generation will have a major redesign which will affect every aspect of the vehicle. To start with, the new EVO will not use the Lancer’s platform any more. With this in mind, we should expect these two models to part and have no similarities from now on. In addition, both exterior and interior will suffer radical changes and receive quite an improvement. Unfortunately, the manufacturer is refusing to reveal any specifics about the next generation of EVO, so there isn’t much reliable information about its performance or details on the design. The production of 2016 Mitsubishi EVO XI will start in July this year, so it will be released most likely next year in the USA. Until then, we can only speculate just how amazing the surprise Mitsubishi is preparing for us. We are sure, though, regardless of the details, that it will be absolutely breathtaking.
2016 Mitsubishi EVO Redesign And Performance Changes
The 2016 Mitsubishi EVO XI will have a new platform, like we said earlier. With this in mind, we should expect a lot of new details that will make this car stand out from its competition. The idea for the new EVO XI look is based on the well-known Mitsubishi Concept-RA. Of course, you shouldn’t expect each and every part of this model to be based on this concept, but the main lines and idea in general will follow the basic elements in RA concept. Some small details here and there, tweaks and perks will make the difference and possibly set this model apart from its competitors. There have been some modest announcements from the Mitsubishi Company saying that the new 2016 EVO XI will have an improved handling and outstanding technology. This means we can probably look forward to more futuristic interior, lot of gadgets and systems and improved performance.
2016 Mitsubishi EVO Powertrain And Improved Fuel Economy
The 2016 Mitsubishi EVO will have a combination of diesel and electric powertrain. With so much time and effort invested in this model, we expect it to have a fantastic fuel economy and better performance than the previous generation. In the worst case possible, the new EVO XI will have the same performance as its predecessor. But this is highly unlikely since the manufacturer already bragged just how amazing this hybrid will be. As for any specific information, there are some, but we can say for sure that there are accurate. Anyway, this is a possible scenario, so we will mention it here. The manufacturer said they will probably use a small gasoline engine and small electric motors for this model, paired will lighter and stronger batteries. The rumors say that they will use a turbocharged 2.0-liter 4-cylinder gasoline engine. As for the electric motor, the new 2016 EVO XI will have two electric engines most likely paired with lithium-ion battery. In addition, it is said that this powertrain will be capable of producing 500 horsepower. If this is true, then the new 2016 Mitsubishi EVO XI will truly have an astonishing performance. All this should be enhanced with improved handling and a Super All-Wheel Control System.
2016 Mitsubishi EVO XI Release And Price
The 2016 Mitsubishi EVO XI will hit the market next year, like we said before. As for the price, if you take into consideration all the improvements and speculations about the new redesigned generation, then you should expect it to cost more than its predecessor. Other sources say it shouldn’t cost more than $50,000, while the least expensive estimation is $36,000. If all the rumors are true, this is a fair price for the quality you’d get with the new 2016 EVO XI.
