Detroit show gets new EVO X
Based on the same GS platform used in the Dodge Caliber, it will be a much larger sedan than the current Lancer it's replacing. With the Caliber SRT-4 packing 300 hp, the newest rally rocket from Mitsu will hopefully have at least that much running through its rumored Audi-like twin-clutch sequential 6-speed gearbox. Hopefully the rumors suggesting that it will be lighter than the current Lancer Evolution are true as well.
The Evo X will also feature a completely redesigned chassis and computer system, boasting a new all-wheel-drive system that will control braking, throttle, and suspension adjustment in real-time. Called S-AWC, or Super All Wheel control, it will work simultaneously with the Active Center Differential. The S-AWC uses Torque vectoring to send different amounts of torque to any wheel at any given time.
