Will The Mitsubishi Evo Be Turned Into Some Kind Of Crossover Coupe?

The fate of the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution has been in serious limbo for a while now. The current car will die soon, and conspiring against a new generation is the fact Mitsubishi is focusing on crossovers and hybrids. But does that mean the next Evo could be a plug-in based on a crossover? » 4/07/14 10:00pm 4/07/14 10:00pm

Mitsubishi Doesn't Even Know What They Do Well Anymore

Multiple sources report that Mitsubishi's halo car, the Lancer Evolution, will end production at the end of this year. Eco- is the new prefix du jour, yet Mitsubishi simply hasn't made an eco-friendly car that will sell in North America. It's becoming increasingly obvious that Team Emperor has no clothes. » 4/01/14 10:00am 4/01/14 10:00am

This Dutch Auto Plant Has Produced Many Different Cars

The history of carmaking in The Netherlands is can pretty much be summed up by one acronym: DAF. They built some interesting cars before that division of the company was bought by Volvo. But that DAF plant in Born has turned out an odd string of vehicles for almost 50 years. » 2/21/14 9:00pm 2/21/14 9:00pm

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 decided… » 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 was … » 1/20/14 7:56pm 1/20/14 7:56pm

Mitsubishi Outlander Plug-In Still Coming To America... Eventually

Does anyone even remember the Mitsubishi Outlander exists? Even immediately after sitting in one, it's easy to forget. It's one calling card in other markets is the availability of a super-efficient plug-in hybrid version. And it's coming to the U.S. Just not until 2015 now. » 12/30/13 4:40pm 12/30/13 4:40pm

Will American-Made Trucks Be Mitsubishi's Return To Relevancy?

With the i-MiEV flopping on the deck like an asphyxiated fish and the demise of the Gallant and Eclipse leaving a gap in Mitsubishi's Normal, IL manufacturing facility, Mitsubishi may be looking to trucks to turn their fortunes around in the US. » 12/19/13 2:45pm 12/19/13 2:45pm

Mitsubishi's Trio Of Tokyo Concepts Is Shockingly Rational

Oh, Mitsubishi. You had the chance to do something totally crazy with your Tokyo Motor Show concepts this year. After all, you are showing off three of them. Previewed in last month's blurry sketches, they at least look good for the most part and, of course, they're all electric in some way. » 11/01/13 10:20am 11/01/13 10:20am

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

Why Do Carmakers Keep Asking Us In Ads To Find Things?

Apparently, this commercial for the 2014 Mitsubishi Outlander has been out since June, but I haven't seen it until just a couple days ago. Much like the new Outlander, it's mostly forgettable. Maybe I have seen the ad before, but I probably just mistook it for a black screen. » 9/22/13 3:00pm 9/22/13 3:00pm

Mitsubishi's 1991 Concept Car Will Make You Wish You Were A Cartoon

The worst thing a concept car can be is boring. In that sense, Mitsubishi's 1991 concept car, the mS 1000, is an absolute success. To most people, I suspect it comes off as ridiculous, and that's hard to argue. Still, I think there's a valuable lesson in this car that's valid today: Not every car has to be serious. » 9/20/13 4:16pm 9/20/13 4:16pm

Next Mitsubishi Evo Could Go Hybrid For Real This Time Probably

What's the deal with the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution? Does the car have a future at all as its brand continues to flag hard in the North American market? One new rumor says it does — in plug-in electric hybrid form. For real this time. » 7/24/13 4:00pm 7/24/13 4:00pm
