    "The Evolander builds upon the reputation that the Lancer Evolution
    sedan has built among tuners and car enthusiasts. Like the Evo, the
    Evolander boasts a forced induction engine, electronic all-wheel drive, and
    a tuned suspension that deliver on its Evo-ness," said Dan Sims, managing
    director of Mitsubishi Research and Design America. "A vehicle like
    Evolander, which blends Evolution-style design cues and sport SUV themes,
    might help inspire tuners to apply their wares to the compact SUV segment."


    Headlining the marquee of Mitsubishi's SEMA display is the Evolander
    concept. This unique vehicle, created by the Mitsubishi Research and Design
    of America (MRDA) team in Cypress, California started life as a 2007
    Outlander, which is an all-new addition to Mitsubishi's line-up that goes
    on sale in November. The creative minds at MRDA sought to infuse the
    Evolander concept with performance elements and design cues inspired by
    Mitsubishi's omnipotent, race-ready, super-sedan, the Lancer Evolution. An
    exploratory concept, the Evolander represents the design and engineering
    possibilities of what could be an Outlander Ralliart production model in
    the future.

    For the Evolander, the output of the Outlander's 3.0-liter V6 engine
    (normally rated at 220 hp) swells to 300 hp with the help of an
    ATI/Roadrace Engineering Procharger system that uses a centrifugal
    compressor to produce 6 psi of boost. The increased power is fed through a
    6-speed automatic transmission that is actuated by the same magnesium-alloy paddle shifters that will be equipped on the next generation performance
    model. The Evolander puts power to pavement using Mitsubishi's newest
    electronically-controlled AWD system offering exceptional, rally-car like
    roadholding in an SUV. The list of Evolander's dynamic enhancements also
    includes a Roadrace Engineering/Muellerized coilover suspension system that
    enhances handling to help dice corners with precision and exceptional
    control. The Evolander rides on lightweight 20-inch OZ wheels wrapped in
    high performance Yokohama Advan ST performance rubber. Brembo's new
    6-piston monobloc-style brakes squeeze massive cross-drilled front rotors,
    and a set of cross-drilled rear rotors were added to help bring the vehicle
    to a swift, safe sudden halt.

    The Evolander's exterior design follows along an "urban performance"
    theme, and shares several characteristics with the Lancer Evolution sedan.
    The Evolander's fascia design mimics that of the Evolution vehicles with
    its cavernous cooling and brake duct intakes and an aggressively vented
    hood. The Lancer Evolution also lends its iconic, rally-inspired, box
    flares to the Evolander, increasing the width of the vehicle at the fenders
    by 28 mm. The Evolander also features a more aggressive aerodynamic
    treatment, with lowered side sills, fender vents, a rear diffuser and a
    Ralliart rear spoiler that add a "sporty urban" look to the SUV.

    The Evolander's stylish interior fuses sporting elements of Evolution
    with the technology features found on Outlander. Recaro Sport form fitting,
    reclining racing seats cradle and support driver and passenger helping
    improve a driver's seating position and vehicle control during aggressive
    driving. The interior still maintains full use of the 2007 Outlander's new
    30 GB hard-drive navigation system (with 1200 song music storage
    capability), as well as the rear DVD entertainment system, and the
    eardrum-rattling Rockford Fosgate 650 watt audio system.

    first time ata for mitsu to use a supercharger as FI.
