Compared to the trimmed-down GSR, the MR gets the Mitsubishi 6-speed DSG transmission (which they insist on calling the TC-SST, as if there aren't enough letters being thrown about with this vehicle). The base MSRP for the MR when it goes on sale this fall is $38,290, which gets bumped to $40,840 with the inclusion of an upgraded sound/nav system and other technological goodies. Described by Dan Neil as a rocket-powered groundhog, it looks like this new groundhog will get its day. Full press release below the jump.
