Lancer Bass

New Lancer Model Thread (Rumours, Speculation, Etc.)

57 posts in this topic

So a refresh of the Lancer is on the horizon. Mitsubishi is trying to have all future models have a similar face. Has anyone else on the forum found anything from a Mitsubishi artist? So far I can only find third party artist with their vision of what the new Lancer would look like:

Old 2013 Concept: http://carsreports2014.com/2015-mitsubishi-lancer-changes/

Old 2014 Concept: http://minkara.carview.co.jp/en/userid/441215/blog/31846229/

New 2016 Concept: http://rualavto.ru/novinki/eskizy-mitsubishi-lancer-novogo-pokoleniya/

Really hard to find any news for regular Lancers on web. Everything is related to the Evo or Ralliart. Most North American websites ignore Mitsubishi unless it's about the EVO/Outlander/RVR/PHEV models. If you guys have anything please share in thread.

Looks like a galant to me. Although the first one looks like they mushed a Eclipse and a lancer together.

Of course peoples concept drawings are never right

Example: A 2007 concept of the evo X

So I went on the mitsuibishi site to build and price a car. I do that from time to time because Im a mitsu nerd. Anyway I have noticed that after 2 years of not being available to build, the 2015 lancer ralliart is now available to build and purchase. interesting..

I don't think the Ralliarts are going away anytime soon. They might just make fewer than before.

Anyways. I'm hoping the front end of the Lancer looks like their Outpander PHEV concept-s. The head and fog lights look sweet on it.

Good News: Parts for years! (OE and aftermarket)

Bad News: No refresh (at least >=5 years?)

Only glimmer of hope is if the new PHEV lines become so profitable, we will get performance versions of them, and if we are lucky get a new Lancer as well

Well at least replacement oem parts will be easy to find. Company's will still develop better aftermarket things. Maybe someone will put together a good turbo kit

I wouldn't be surprised if they used the Sentra's chassis, being that Nissan and Mitsubishi could possibly partner up for certain projects just like all the other companies are.

Found another rendering of what new face will look like for the (prob 2016) Lancer. This one looks the closest so far, compared to all the other renderings. If it's just a new bumper+Headlights, I wonder if 2008+ Lancers can switch out to it.

Looks more like a civic and that shape will look outdated very quick, unlike the current lancer managing to look fresh despite 8 years. But i doubt this concept is true anyway. Its just using new Outlander front onto Lancer.

Here we go guys. The official face lift for the 9th gen Lancer. I'll have to double check and see if it at least gets the new CVT-8 from the new RVR/Outlander (edit: Yes it will). From the looks of it, they stole the RVR's DRL/fogs and widen the "mouth" of it with no chrome piece. (IMO, it would look great if you black out the grill)

But yeah, nice to see a small update for it.

OH shit, no more Ralliart models!

Obviously the reason, that current lancers are so popular is its similarity to evo x in platform, mechanical and visual aspects. New lancer will be made on Renault platform where as new evo on completely different and unique just for it platform. Therefore I suspect, that interest in lancers will drop significantly amongst younger crowd. Fact that new evo will have hybrid system although raises fear that its engine will not be swappable to lancer body.
