Overview of Mitsubishi’s 2017 Model Lineup!

2017 Mitsubishi ModelsWhether you like crossovers, sedans, fuel efficient cars, or even electric vehicles, Mitsubishi has upgraded their models for the 2017 model year. So let’s take a quick look at some of the highlights for each Mitsubishi model.

2017 Mitsubishi Lancer

The Mitsubishi Lancer is a classic. Many of the Lancer trims are available with AWC or “all-wheel control” for better handling when on the road. The base trim is powered by a 2.0-liter MIVEC engine, granting it 148 horsepower. MIVEC is Mitsubishi’s patented VVT system, a design implemented for performance and fuel economy. The EPA for the Lancer is 27/34 mpg city/highway, so the proof is in the pudding.

Some of the other standard features are 16-inch two-tone alloy wheels, the popular FUSE Hands-Free link system, and a 6.1-inch touchscreen with rearview camera. You’re not going to see many base trim vehicles with a touchscreen and a camera. On the higher end trims, luxury features like leather trim, heated front seats, and premium audio systems are at your fingertips.

The starting MSRP is $17,795 and is backed by the best coverage from Mitsubishi, nearly doubling every other auto brand warranty on the market today.

Mitsubishi Motors’ MIVEC, CVT and RISE

Miami Lakes Mitsubishi MotorsInternal combustion engines have come a long way. We have engines in all types of equipment and machinery, from the motors in an electric shaver to the motor under the hood of our car. There are many systems implanted into engines today to improve performance and some brands, like Mitsubishi Motors, have created their own special engine systems to better serve their customers.

CVT

Take CVT for instance, or “Continuously Variable Transmission,” which is an available transmission on all Mitsubishi models (except for the i-Miev). CVT is a type of automatic transmission that changes seamlessly through the various gears without that chugging motion that old cars are known for. You know, where it feels like the front end of the car is suddenly being tugged on? Well, that usually happens when a vehicle needs to change gears at higher speeds.

When an engine has CVT integrated into it, the input shaft, or the mechanism that delivers power to the gearbox and the ability to switch gears automatically, maintains its rotational speed. To put it simply, the input shaft is a component within the engine that aids in switching gears; this component rotates at different speeds respective to the speed of the car; older vehicles would momentarily change speed while switching gears, whereas engines with CVT are able to maintain their speed and switch gears simultaneously.
