2011 model year changes

For 2011 the Mitsubishi lineup has been shaken up a bit. For starters the continuously variable transmission (CVT) has been dropped from the Lancer DE trim. In the Lancer Sportback, a base ES model has been added to the lineup, available with both a manual or CVT transmission. All Lancer Ralliart trims now include Mitsubishi's Twin Clutch-Sportronic Shift Transmission (TC-SST) and that car's turbocharged engine now boasts more power, up to 242 hp and 258 pound-feet of torque. Ralliart models will shed 90 pounds and will ride on standard 18-inch wheels. Mitsubishi claims 0 to 60 mph time improves from 5.9 seconds to 5.4 seconds. Mitsubishi's top-of-the-line Lancer, the Evolution, will take a hiatus for 2011, as it did in 2009, with delivery expected again for 2012.
