Mitsubishi Teases The Facelifted Triton / L200, Says It’s Coming Soon

Mitsubishi-Triton-L200-Teas

Mitsubishi is celebrating 40 years of truck production by releasing the first teaser image of the facelifted Triton / L200.

Noting the “future of the pickup will soon be revealed,” the teaser image suggests the upcoming Triton will have a have bold front fascia that mimics the eX concept.

Styling details are hard to make out, but the truck has a Dynamic Shield front end with slender headlights that appear to reside above some pretty sizable lower lighting units. We can also see an angular front bumper and a significant amount of chrome trim.

The grille itself appears relatively small, but it will have a prominent Mitsubishi badge in the center. We can also get a glimpse of the Triton’s wheels and center-mounted antenna.

While the teaser image isn’t very revealing, previous spy photos have shown styling updates will primarily be limited to the truck’s front end. However, the Triton appears to have a new rear bumper and updated taillights.

Since this is just a facelift, it’s unlikely that the model will have a significantly revised interior. However, there could be a handful of minor changes including an updated infotainment system and revised upholstery – among other things.

Engine options also remain unconfirmed, but the current model offers a handful of petrol and diesel options. In the United Kingdom, the L200 can be equipped with a 2.4-liter four-cylinder turbodiesel that has outputs of 151 hp (113 kW / 154 PS) and 280 lb-ft (380 Nm) as well as 178 hp (133 kW / 181 PS) and 317 lb-ft (430 Nm) of torque.

There’s no word on when the updated Triton / L200 will be unveiled, but Mitsubishi is reportedly skipping the 2018 Paris Motor Show.

    I wonder if this shares any DNA with the has yet to be seen new Nissan Frontier and if there would be room for it in the US with it. If so it could be produced with it in Tennessee.
