Mitsubishi Shows A Brand New Triton Pickup
The Mitsubishi Triton has had a great run in Malaysia and the region, but it is time for a brand new Triton. The all new Triton has just been unveiled and it comes with stylistic cues previewed by the GR-HEV Concept at the 2013 edition of the Geneva Motor Show.
Also known as the L200 in various parts of the world, Mitsubishi’s compact truck was always a versatile pickup in its segment. As its always the case with revamped models, the 2015 Mitsubishi Triton is more enticing aesthetic-wise than its agricultural-looking predecessor, but also boasts with a better cabin design, fit & finish and engine lineup.
The front fascia is all polished chrome and jewel-like headlights with LED DRLs, while the rear quarters incorporate taillights.
Available as a Single Cab, Double Cab or Club Cab
The 2015 Mitsubishi Triton/L200 will be built exclusively in Thailand, with first deliveries coming to Malaysian showrooms before 2016. The Japanese manufacturer also disclosed that in time, the compact pickup is going to be sold in roughly 150 countries worldwide.
The Outlander SUV-inspired steering wheel and climate control unit, as well as the clean and minimalistic car cabin interior design makes the Triton a pleasant place to be in when in a traffic jam.
The gearshifter is borrowed from the car parts bin and so are the many knobs and switches. Available in either rear-wheel or AWD guise, the 2015 Mitsubishi Triton/L200 can be had with a choice of four powerplants. Two 2.4L units are available: petrol with 128PS and 194Nm and a turbo diesel with 181PS and 430Nm of torque.
There is also a 2.5liter diesel. The first develops 128PS and 240Nm, while the uprated variant boasts with 178PS and 400Nm of torque.
