In addition, Mitsubishi Motors Corporation (MMC), announced plans to develop a next-generation common rail Turbo-diesel engine, which is planned for launch in the new Lancer in 2010.

The 2007 NAIAS runs January 7-21 at the Cobo Center in Detroit and is open to the general public from January 13. In addition to the world-debut vehicles, Mitsubishi is displaying its entire 2007 model line at the show, including the all-new Outlander SUV, the exciting new Galant Ralliart performance sedan and the new Eclipse Spyder. Special Edition (SE) versions of the Galant, the Endeavor midsize SUV and the Eclipse coupe will be on the show floor. In addition, the Baja-winning Raider and a Safari Rally winner from 1973, the Lancer 1600 GSR, will represent more than three decades of Mitsubishi motorsports heritage.

The new Lancer, Prototype X and the upcoming Lancer Evolution are all built on an all-new performance-engineered global platform that debuted with the 2007 Mitsubishi Outlander SUV. The inherent robustness and versatility of the platform allow Mitsubishi to build a diverse array of models with it going forward, with each one retaining a unique performance character.

The 2008 Lancer will deliver driven-to-thrill dynamics, "class-up" value, advanced safety and available cutting-edge user-technology in an aggressively styled machine. Lancer's comprehensive safety package provides seven standard air bags, including the first driver's knee air bag in a Mitsubishi model.

While remaining true to the core values that have made the Lancer Evolution series synonymous with thrilling performance, the next-generation will offer all-around capability and user technology that distinguish the world's best performance models. The high-performance engine, sports car dynamics and striking design will appeal to enthusiasts worldwide - for those who desire a daily driver with street credentials as well as those anticipating weekend club racing.

The 2008 Lancer and Prototype X convey a shared lineage with the Mitsubishi Concept-X that was first shown at Tokyo Motor Show in 2005. The shared "DNA" is anchored in a new design language that conveys an unmistakable brand identity. A shark-nosed front end inspired by jet fighter air intakes, a distinct wedge-like profile and crisp, taut lines highlight the exciting new design.

Under its dramatic skin, Prototype X showcases an all-new 2.0-liter Turbocharged engine and a new high performance all-wheel-drive system called Super-All Wheel Control (S-AWC). Prototype X also previews a new paddle-shift automated manual transmission that will be offered in the Lancer Evolution for the first time.
