Default Confirmed: Evo X coming late this year

New Motor Trend seems to have nailed down the facts a little better. 6spd Paddle shifters still appear to be in the mix, new AWD system, minimum of 300hp out of a 2.0. Should be interesting...

Here's the pics so you don't have to search.. and yes, it looks like an SRT-4 because of the grille and the red color.. get over it.

That's what the mag says, and I think that's been in the rumor mill for a while too. I'm mostly diggin the new design sans spoiler, but it's not as bad as the STi one IMHO, and the 6spd paddle shifters is hot. I've driven an SMG M3 and loved it, plus I have carpal tunnel, so.. .for me, it's a no brainer... UNLESS, Subaru can make a good next gen STI - well, I know they can, but hopefully it will look better too!!

LOOK

IS YOUR MOUTH WATERING YET?
It should be. Leaner, meaner and
more muscular than ever before,
the forthcoming Mitsubishi Lancer
Evolution X is set to be the most
potent “Evo” to date.
With its bulging wheel arches,
ferocious-looking front grille and
menacing stare, you quickly realise
that this car is not for the faint-hearted.
When it comes to the interior (above
right), a simple, functional layout allows
the driver to concentrate fully on the
job at hand, while an LCD screen
relays real-time information on the
vehicle’s technical status.
While this new incarnation looks like
no other Lancer Evolution you’ve ever
seen before, rest assured that the
legendary “Evo” pedigree is
still present and correct.
As with previous Lancer Evolution
models, which have proved themselves
on the world’s toughest rally stages,
the motivating force behind this
beautiful beast is a 2-litre, 4-cylinder,
turbocharged engine.
Needless to say, the DOHC MIVEC
power-plant in the new Lancer
Evolution X has been developed
even further, and is designed to deliver
instant response – whatever the revs
– and keep on pulling all the way
to the red line.
A clutchless, six-speed, auto-manual
transmission provides slicker shifting
through the gearbox, with paddle
shifters mounted on the steering
column. While exact figures have
yet to be released, expect acceleration
and speed to be in the region of
“jaw-droppingly quick”.
Handling is also improved, and body
stiffness increased, while the use
of aluminium in the bonnet, boot lid,
bumpers and roof reduces weight
even further.
Combine this with a lower centre of
gravity and you have extraordinary
levels of roadholding. All in all,
a nimbler Lancer Evolution than
ever before.
And when it comes to safety, the
Lancer Evolution X features the latest
technical developments – in the form
of Mitsubishi’s Super All Wheel Control
(S-AWC). Based on the full-time 4WD
system seen on previous Lancer
Evolution models, S-AWC adds Active
Brake Control, Active Steering System
and Mitsubishi Motors’ “Roll Control
Suspension” technology, to create a
fully integrated system.
As with its predecessors, expect the
Lancer Evolution X to combine
supercar performance with everyday
practicality.
Want one? Course you do.

I would be surprised if it gets here at the end of the year (as an '07) - that does seem way quick, after all the concept version was only shown late last year.

This next-gen Evo looks way the hell better than the current STI, so it will be VERY interesting to see how Subaru answers the challenge.

if you look at the UK link....it says...

Launch: Mid 2007

Mostly all other publications or sites have said the same thing, Mid 2007 as a 2008 Model...

but they could up the date (just like the Eclipse) since they have said that the Concept is about 90% what the next EVO X will look like...

I'll check my magazine again later, but it said 2006 launch. Trust me, I was going with the 2007 plan as well, for both Mitsu and for the next gen STI. So, I'm fine with waiting till 07, but when I saw 06... sheeeottt.

Clutchless six-speed auto/manual tranny. I'm not feeling that. I took out an M3 that had an auto/manual tranny with paddle shifters and it just was not the same. Maybe in an F1 car but not a daily driver.

Motor Trend is not exactly reliable. For example, they kept claiming the Civic Type R would come over when the EP chassis was new:

Oh come on dude. Everyone knows that the first model year of any car is gonna have its issues. Im just saying that fact coupled with them doing something they have never used before, I would expect there to be problems.

paddle shifting = either clutchless system or automatic clutch,
manual clutch is not feasible, this is America the cars have to be idiot proof

they have to have a shifter to complement paddles o/w you wouldn't be able to shift on turns

I was talking about a standard clutch and center console mounted shifter. I'm sure someone at Mitsubishi is smart enough...uh oh.

One article said it will have auto mode like the SMG. Not sure if the "stick" will be like the SMG though, I'm guessing it wont. It will either be auto or paddles, no clutch.

Looks? I think it looks better than the current STI, easy. If it comes out in 06 as an 07, I will wait for an 07 model sometime in 08. Good point on those first year bugs.

Nice unit, but I don't see the point in it unless you're disabled and really wish you could drive a manual.
