Mitsubishi Outsold These Three BIG Brands in 2018

Mitsubishi Outsold These Three BIG Brands in 2018

It took us two minutes to lift our jaws back

We are dead serious right now. Mitsubishi actually managed to outsell the three brands mentioned in the U.S. Maybe it is some kind of sorcery or Mitsubishi has sprayed some sort of invisible ink, we don’t know, but the Japanese giant has managed to move 118,074 cars in 2018 - all of it without socializing at auto-show gatherings or sponsoring many events.

2019 Mitsubishi Lancer Edition R by Dytko and Proto Cars

2019 Mitsubishi Lancer Edition R by Dytko and Proto Cars

It’s the Mitubishi Lancer EVO XI that we all want and deserve but Mitsubishi won’t built

Polish company Dytko Sport, who specializes in building parts for Mitsubishi Lancer Evo rally cars, created what can only be called the Lancer Evo XI. Partnering with the company Proto cars, Dytko Sport utilized the Dynamic Shield design philosophy of the latest Mitsubishi line of vehicles and slapped the parts on the Evo X. I can only tell you this - it looks the business. While the full reveal is still a few days away, the officially named Lancer Edition R has already gained serious Internet traction and fame, even waking up dreamy Lancer Evo X enthusiasts in the process. The stories about the comeback of the Lancer name are already swamping the Internet, but I can tell you right away that the only way Lancer Evo will ever come back is in the form of a Crossover. Nevertheless, Dytko Sport obviously formulated something awesome that undoubtedly took some time to build.

Mitsubishi is Bringing Three Concepts to the Tokyo Auto Salon, All of Which Lack Certain Necessities

Mitsubishi is Bringing Three Concepts to the Tokyo Auto Salon, All of Which Lack Certain Necessities

Mitsubishi really doesn’t seem to have a clue these days

The Tokyo Auto Salon is nearing its arrival and Mitsubishi is prepared to tackle the show with not one, not two, but three concepts. The first one is based on the Delica D:5 and offers up a take on what an off-road-oriented model could look like. The other two concepts are based on the Outlander PHEV and Eclipse Cross, and both go by the name “Street Sport.” Information is still rather thin at this point, but here’s what we know so far.

This is the 2018 Mitsubishi E-Evolution Concept and We're Not Sure How to Feel About It

This is the 2018 Mitsubishi E-Evolution Concept and We’re Not Sure How to Feel About It

Mitsubishi has brought its e-Evolution concept to the U.S. for the first time at the 2018 Los Angeles auto show after its last showing at the 2018 Geneva motor show. It’s a study for a sporty, all-electric performance crossover with an iconic name, but one that we don’t see reaching production any time soon, at least in a form as extreme as this.

Does the 2019 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross Look Any Better in Person?

Does the 2019 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross Look Any Better in Person?

Check out our walkaround from the L.A. Auto Show

When Mitsubishi announced that it will revive the Eclipse nameplate for a crossover a few years ago, many enthusiasts went berserk. Now that the Eclipse Cross has arrived, things have settled down. However, many still think that the compact SUV isn’t worthy of the "Eclipse" badge. But is the Eclipse Cross really that awful?

Mitsubish May Finally Update the Shogun, aka Pajero After 20 Years of the Same

Mitsubish May Finally Update the Shogun, aka Pajero After 20 Years of the Same

The SUV is still adored by enthusiasts and fans all around the globe

A wise man once said that SUVs don’t need upgrades and facelifts regularly as these beasts age gracefully. I think that man worked at Mitsubishi because, at a time when companies update their monsters every 3-4 years, the Japanese automaker is continuing with same old design on their Shogun that, essentially, dates back to last century. However, Mitsubishi has announced that the SUV could finally get a makeover.

2019 Mitsubishi Triton L200

2019 Mitsubishi Triton L200

Mitsubishi L200 Is A One-Ton Truck We Would Like, But Will Never Get

It is quite a shame that we won’t get a new one-ton truck - the 2019 Mitsubishi L200, otherwise known as the Triton. The new Mitsubishi L200 truck enters a competitive segment with the Nissan Navara, the Ford Ranger, the Toyota Hilux, and the Volkswagen Amarok. Yet, this isn’t an all-new truck. Revealed all the way back in 2014, the Mitsubishi L200 received quite a substantial redesign (a facelift if you will) for the new model year. Mitsubishi is keen to introduce it to 150 markets worldwide and aims to sell 180,000 units per year. Obviously, it is a strategic product, meaning that Mitsubishi went out of their way to make it good. Sustainable growth is one of the main aims for the company that recently almost bankrupted, and this is, along with the Eclipse crossover, a key product for it.

The 2019 Mitsubishi Triton Teaser Shows Off an Outlander-Inspired Face

The 2019 Mitsubishi Triton Teaser Shows Off an Outlander-Inspired Face

The silhouette is soothing, but the face is very familiar

Mitsubishi has been a silent spectator all this while. It’s almost like the Japanese automaker is happy in its own shell, least bothered about what’s going on around it. However, it decided to make a little sound now. Mitsubishi has released the first teaser image of the facelifted Triton, while at the same time commemorating its 40th anniversary in truck manufacturing.

2020 Mitsubishi Lancer Cross

2020 Mitsubishi Lancer Cross

The iconic Lancer could become an SUV

As the SUV market is growing larger by the year, more and more automakers are giving up on SUVs to make crossovers. Ford has already announced plans to drop almost every nameplate that’s not a crossover in the U.S. soon, and Mitsubishi seems to follow the same path. Having turned the Eclipse sports car into a crossover, the Japanese firm wants to do the same with the Lancer.

In 2017, Mitsubishi launched the Eclipse Cross, a compact crossover that slots between the Outlander Sport and the Outlander. Previewed by the XR-PHEV concept, this new hauler borrowed its name from an iconic sports car that Mitsubishi built between 1989 and 2011 in Illinois. With the iconic Lancer discontinued in 2017 after no fewer than 44 years on the market, the Japanese carmaker is pondering a revival of the name for a new crossover.

Rumors of this radical change have been flying around for a few years now, and Mitsubishi confirmed earlier in 2018, through COO Trevor Mann, that the next-gen Lancer doesn’t have to be "a very conventional hatchback." "We’re thinking quite radically," he added, hinting that the Lancer name may join the Eclipse on the SUV market. It remains unknown when it will happen, but a new rendering Tigran Lalayan, a designed from Pininfarina, gives us a look at what the Lancer Cross might look like.

Rendering Shows Off the Rebooted Mitsubishi Lancer as a Rally-Bred Crossover Coupe

Sideways racing makes everything better

Back in 2015, Mitsubishi brought the axe down on one its most beloved high-performance models - the Lancer Evolution, a turbo superstar from the rough-and-tumble world of rally racing. While certainly enough to cause more than a few tears among enthusiasts, the Lancer name will continue on, and word has it Mitsu is turning it into a crossover - much like it did with the Eclipse. Salt in the wound? Maybe. But fear not, because there’s still a possible silver lining to all of this, and it’s once again inspired by the world of rally racing.

What Will Happen to Mitsubishi Now That the Man Behind VW and Alfa Romeo Design Is On the Team?

Will fresh looks help launch Mitsubishi out its slump?

Mitsubishi has been struggling as of late, first killing off the beloved Evo, then replacing it with a line of less-than exciting models that left us with a very profound sense of “meh.” However, recent reports indicate a substantial increase in sales over the first half of 2018, and now the company is taking on a new executive design director. Does this herald the dawn of a new day at the beleaguered automaker?

As if Ruining the Eclipse Name Wasn't Enough, Mitsubishi Will Now Slap a Lancer Badge on an SUV

As if Ruining the Eclipse Name Wasn’t Enough, Mitsubishi Will Now Slap a Lancer Badge on an SUV

Mitsubishi took quite a bit of heat for slapping the Eclipse name on a crossover but, apparently, that heat wasn’t enough as the brand is now looking at slapping the Lancer name – yes, the name that was affiliated with a sporty little sedan with rally DNA – on a damn crossover. The worst part is that the guys behind this abortion of failed thought process believe that a crossover-type vehicle will be able to compete with C-Segment hatchbacks like the Ford Focus and Volkswagen Golf. Mitsubishi has been successful in improving sales thus far, but is slapping the Lancer name on a crossover that wants to be a hatchback taking things too far?

2018 Mitsubishi L200 Barbarian SVP II

2018 Mitsubishi L200 Barbarian SVP II

Adding exclusivity to a mundane truck

Introduced all the way back in 1978, the Mitsubishi L200 is now in its fifth-generation, having been redesigned most recently in 2015. Although anonymous in the U.S. beyond the Ram models based on it back in the 1980s, the L200 is a popular truck in emerging markets from Asia and posts good sales in some European markets too. The current L200 is also the basis of the Fiat Fullback, Italy’s first big truck in years. The L200’s increasing success in Europe prompted Mitsubishi to create a limited-edition version through its Special Vehicle Project (SVP) division.

Based on the Barbarian Double Cab trim and dubbed SVP II, this limited-edition truck builds on the success of the first SVP version, launched in 2017. Much like its predecessor, it gains extra standard features in the tech department, but it also stands out from the crowd thanks to special color schemes with striking accents. The bad news, beyond the fact that the L200 is not available in the United States, is that the SVP II can’t be purchased outside the United Kingdom. Nevertheless, let’s find out more about this truck.

Don’t Look Now, But Mitsubishi’s Got Its Own Personalization Division

The SVP department is in charge of building beauties like the Barbarian

Ferrari, McLaren, Lamborghini, and Mitsubishi. These automakers and a whole bunch of others have something in common that extend beyond building products with four wheels on them. These companies have their own personalization departments. In the case of Mitsubishi, its back-room variety division is called the Special Vehicle Projects (SVP). It’s responsible for a number of custom Mitsubishis, including its newest creation, the Barbarian SVP II. Don’t feel bad if you didn’t know Mitsubishi had a personalization division. Most of us were none the wiser.
