Mitsubishi L200 / Triton facelift revealed with bold design

Mitsubishi L200 / Triton facelift revealed with bold design

It looks like Mitsubishi's new, more angular, styling for the L200 is created to appeal to "Lifestyle" buyers (and BIK gamers) to look more like an SUV with a load bed than a rough and ready pick-up and, in the United Kingdom, it seems unlikely Mitsubishi will offer anything other than the top end double cab models.

A thoroughly updated version of the Mitsubishi Triton has finally been revealed, with the Japanese automaker claiming the refreshed bakkie offers "more powerful styling", an enhanced four-wheel-drive system and new safety and driver assistance systems.

"I am fully confident the New TRITON/L200 will meet the diverse needs and wishes of our customers around the world". "The new model brings enhancements to the durability, reliability and comfort developed over the 40 years since the introduction of the series", said Mitsubishi Motors CEO Osamu Masuko.

The restyled interior of the Triton is now more robust and modern, with improvements to frame surroundings for the switch panel and air outlets.

The front face incorporates the new-generation "Dynamic Shield" front design concept.

Further, the new Mitsubishi L200 4WD models are fitted with an option between Super-Select 4WD, which delivers optimum traction and handling characteristics for any given surface, or Easy-Select 4WD, which simplifies switching between drive modes for different road surfaces. Sales of new products in the local market, will start on 17 November this year.

Certain fans never forgive a player for leaving their club to join a direct rival, but the trophies Sterling has since won with City more than justify his motives.

Another new string to the bow of the L200 is Hill descent control and bespoke off-road modes for surfaces including snow, gravel, rock and sand, furthering the ability of the pick-up off the beaten track. Included Off-road mode simultaneously adjusts engine power, transmission and brakes to prevent wheel spin.

- Rear Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA) which, in the same way, helps avoid collisions when reversing.

Providing convenient driver assistance are the Multi Around Monitor, which generates a bird's eye view image of the area around the vehicle, and Parking Sensors.

The re-styled pick-up will be going on sale in Thailand - where it is built - branded as the Triton later this month, and will roll out in other Asian markets before touching down in the United Kingdom in Summer 2019.

Other changes include improved braking performance as Mitsubishi has fitted larger front discs and calipers to the new Triton.
