If you want a 2015 Mitsubishi Lancer Ralliart you need to act quickly
The 2015 Mitsubishi Lancer Ralliart comes with seven new standard features both inside and out for the new model year but they won't be around long. It also comes with new pricing that bumps the cost up $1,100 over the outgoing model. Mitsubishi keeps the cost under the $30,000 mark and prices the 2015 Ralliart at $29,495 without destination/handling. But production won’t last long on the performance model so numbers may be limited.
Mitsubishi says the 2015 Lancer Ralliart production starts September 2014 and will end in December 2014. That’s a very short window of only four months and production numbers of the performance model will be very limited. So if you want a new 2015MY Ralliart you better act quickly. Production of the other Lancer models will continue on into 2015, including the Lancer Evolution. But Ralliart production gets cut off at the end of this year.
