I love the aggressive look on the new Lancer Evolution X, particularly the front nose that screams out how powerful this sports sedan wants to be. While the base price on the Evo IX started at around the $28k mark, the new Evo X is a few thousand dollars more. And the price goes up from there.
The newest Lancer Evolution has a starting price of $34,000. At that price point, you get the GSR with a five-speed manual transmission. Step it up to the Lancer Evo X MR, complete with the marque’s new six-speed dual clutch transmission and the price takes a hike up to $39,000. Mitsubishi reminds us that this is “preliminary pricing” and they hope to a $1000 cut across the board before they go on sale.
That’s right, the Evo X isn’t for sale just yet, so don’t go rushing out to your local Mitsubishi dealership. The basic GSR model will be made available in February with the hawt MR version hitting dealers “before the summer.” Both cars have also received EPA fuel ratings as well, chiming in at 16/22 on the GSR and 17/22 on the MR.
