Comparatively, the 4G63 2L DOHC intercooled 2.0L turbo engine used in the outgoing Lancer EVO IX had the same output of 206 kW (280 PS) at 6,500 rpm, but a lower maximum torque figure of 400 Nm (295 lb.ft or 40.8 kgm) at 3,000 rpm for the 6-speed M/T GSR, and 407 Nm (300 lb.ft or 41.5 kg-m) at 3,000 rpm for the 5-speed M/T RS. Of course, since these figures concern the JDM version, we’ll have to wait to see what Mitsubishi has in mind for the European and US versions spec versions. -Continued after the jump
Albeit it’s virtually impossible to translate the 27 page long brochure, we managed to make out a few things including the fact that the Lancer EVO X will be available in Japan in two versions, the GSR and the RS. The GSR will be offered either with Mitsubishi’s new 6-speed dual-clutch gearbox (read more about that here) or with a 5-speed manual. The RS will be available solely with the 5-speed manual gearbox.
