Pickup Mitsubishi L200 with design van Xpander shown on videoOctober 29, 2018
The first image of a pickup L200 with a new design was published by Mitsubishi in mid-September. Now the Thai division of the company has posted a video in the Network, which captures the model. Recall, in Thailand, a truck sold under the name Triton. The world premiere of a pickup is scheduled for November 9th. Mitsubishi did not say where the car will debut – it is possible that it will be shown for the first time in Thailand, because L200 / Triton is produced there.
Externally, the pickup changed dramatically: the model received a two-tiered LED optics and a massive bumper in the corporate X-style Dynamic Shield, like the Eclipse Cross “SUV” and Crossvan Xpander. In addition, recently in the Thai community of New Triton Club on Facebook there was a photo of the stern of the truck – judging by this frame, the car still acquired taillights in the style of the flagship SUV Mitsubishi Pajero Sport.
Technical characteristics of the new L200 / Triton are still kept secret. It is also not yet clear how they will position the car with a different design – as a restyled pickup, or as the model of the next, already the sixth, generation. However, the web has long been rumored that the brand-new Mitsubishi pickup will debut only in 2022, it will share the platform with the next Nissan Navara (Mitsubishi is in the Renault-Nissan alliance). So in November, apparently, will provide an updated L200.
The Mitsubishi frame pickup of the current generation is available with single-row or double cabs, the global version of the engine range includes a gasoline engine 2.4 (132 hp), turbo diesel 2.4 (181 hp) and 2.5 (110, 128, 136 or 178 liters). with.). Motors are combined with a five-or six-speed manual transmission, five-speed automatic transmission. There are two transmission options for the model: Easy Select with a rigidly connected front axle and locking rear differential and Super Select with a center differential.
