2014 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution Chicago
A child’s upbringing has proven to be a tremendously influential factor when it comes to certain aspects of adult life. Many of a person’s passions and preferences can be traced back to specific moments that defined their childhood. Whether an insatiable taste for down-home cooking or a passion for specific crafts, the formative years are known by that name for good reason.
In a strange and interesting way, the affinity that many feel for a vehicle like Mitsubishi EVO may be described in similar terms. Racing simulators are popular options for children with video game systems, and therein lies the key to Mitsubishi’s appeal. Due to its nearly ubiquitous inclusion in popular racing titles, many early memories of motorsport performance were built around the rally-ready Mitsubishi Lancer. While time has required many former youths to trade-in the game controller for a keyboard at their 9-to-5 office job, what was once virtual reality is now the real deal for Illinois drivers with the 2014 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution in Chicago.

Speed is a key ingredient in any good racing game, and the Mitsubishi EVO has plenty of it. Equipped with a turbo-induced, aluminum-block engine, Lancer Evolution puts out 291 horsepower and 300 foot-pounds of torque. One of two high-performance transmissions are called on to channel this power to Mitsubishi’s wheels. The MIVEC engine underneath the hood of EVO’s GSR package is mated to a smooth-throwing five-speed manual. Lancer’s MR package, on the other hand, receives a Twin Clutch Sportronic® transmission that offers the best of both worlds. Drivers may allow the box to operate as a six-speed automatic or do the work themselves with wheel-mounted paddles.
Speed is one thing; control is another. While video game players may have tasted Lancer’s cornering capabilities through a D-pad and joystick, there’s nothing quite like a real-time experience of the vehicle’s Super All-Wheel Control. It’s increasingly rare for a turbocharged sedan to channel torque to all four wheels in rally sport fashion, but that’s exactly what drivers get with the 2014 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution in Chicago. Paired with Active Yaw Control, drivers can be confident that torque is delivered to the most traction-active wheels regardless of curve or surface.

Control and confidence behind an EVO wheel is not simply a product of drivetrain, however. Mitsubishi’s rally sedan is equipped with a number of high-performance features that make racers-at-heart sleep comfortably each night when the sun sinks low to the West. In addition to Brembo brakes and Recaro racing buckets, EVO owners drive forth with the confidence bestowed by Mitsubishi’s 5-year/60,000-mile powertrain limited warranty.
With both GSR and MR models available now, drivers looking to experience the 2014 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution in Chicago are invited to schedule a test drive at Countryside’s Continental Mitsubishi. Call, click, or stop in to make the most of your EVO opportunity today.
