2017 Mitsubishi Lancer Limited Edition Added to Lineup
Mitsubishi recently announced some exciting news about the Lancer — a new Limited Edition trim will join the lineup soon. That means a new look, tons of goodies, and a final Lancer trim before Mitsubishi ends production on it for good. Best of all, it has a starting MSRP of $19,795 and will be available by the end of May 2017.
“The Lancer has a long-standing tradition of providing consumers unparalleled value at an attractive price, so it was only fitting we pay tribute to the sedan with a Limited Edition trim offering … With the addition of updated styling and advanced technology features, the Limited Edition Lancer is set to appeal to consumers who prioritize aesthetics and enjoy a connected car experience.” – Don Swearingen, executive vice president and chief operating officer, Mitsubishi Motors North America.
Sounds about right. The new Lancer Limited Edition trim will have the same engine and horsepower on the Lancer ES, but the engine is paired to Mitsubishi’s Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT), an automatic transmission that seamlessly switches through gears without a loss of speed or expended fuel. That transmission boosts the vehicle’s fuel economy up to 27 mpg in the city and 34 mpg on the highway. But that’s just the tip of the iceberg.
The exterior will have a new look, complete with black 16-inch alloy wheels, and a pseudo two-tone black paint job. Although the new Lancer Limited Edition can be painted in any of the currently available Mitsubishi Lancer colors, the roof, upper front grille, fender, and door mirrors get a black paint treatment. Add in the “Limited Edition” badge and power glass sunroof with tilt and slide and one-touch open/close functionality, and this new trim is shaping up nicely.
Now check out the interior, because it’s looking pretty fine! We’re looking at black fabric with red stitching on the seats, as well as the steering wheel, shift knob, brake lever, arm rest, and doors. There’s also a black headliner and pillars, aluminum pedals, and a gloss black finish. To kick things up a notch in the technology department, Mitsubishi is adding in a an LCD multi-information display, and a 6.5-inch infotainment display with smartphone link connectivity, complete with Apple CarPlay, Google Android Auto, and Bluetooth technology.
