Marvelous Missed Opportunities: The Mitsubishi Lancer Ralliart

The other day, as my car and I sat at an intersection underneath a red light, marinading in a thick soup of late spring humidity, something unexpected appeared in the turning lane just to my left: a minty-fresh Mitsubishi Lancer draped in metallic silver paint and wearing a temporary tag in its rear window. » 5/30/14 4:34pm 5/30/14 4:34pm

Mitsubishi Promises Sleek, Efficient Next-Gen Pickup Truck This Fall

You might have forgotten Mitsubishi even sells pickups, but the rest of the world hasn't. The Three-Diamond company has moved more than 1.1 million L200 trucks out of their Thailand factory since 2005, and are promising a low-emissions next-generation truck this fall that should look like the GR-HEV concept. » 5/27/14 12:20pm 5/27/14 12:20pm

Mitsubishi used to make a LOT of cool things

Yes, we know, Mitsubishi's lineup was awesome 20 years ago. Cars that had all four of their wheels contribute to steering and legitimate FWD budget rockets were awesome. The awesomeness wasn't even limited to the road. At one time Mitsubishi manufactured a whole bunch of awesome stuff - it was pretty much a household… » 5/11/14 10:48am 5/11/14 10:48am

Multiple sources report that Mitsubishi's halo car, the Lancer Evolution, will end production at the end of this year.

A CUV with a CVT a hoonmobile? I call BS

Don't be too sure of that statement. Many of us laugh in the face of a CVT, or even more so at the new WRX CVT, "a rally car with a CVT, the heck you say" this quote was directly taken from one of out more proper commentators. But since announcing it, many have wondered if you can really hoon a car with a CVT? I… » 2/11/14 9:45am 2/11/14 9:45am

Video: What's it Like to Drive a 900HP Evo In the Rain? - /TUNED

Our trip to to the bridge nation of Panama for /TUNED has been interesting so far. We tried to film a Skyline R34, but ended up with a School Bus modified for highway racing. Then, we got ourselves a bad ass fixer with what has to be one of the best modified and most sorted Suzuki Samurais in the entire world. What… » 1/20/14 7:56pm 1/20/14 7:56pm

Mitsubishi Concept Sketch Might Preview The Next Montero, Maybe

Welcome to another reminder that Mitsubishi is still a car company. Other than the cheap and forgettable Mirage hatchback, they don't have a lot of new cars to talk about. But they've just announced that they'll have a new large SUV to show off at the Tokyo Motor Show, oh wait it's a concept. » 10/08/13 10:40am 10/08/13 10:40am
