Better known as the L200, this mid-size pickup still uses the old Triton name in certain parts of the world, such as Australia, New Zealand and Thailand. It has been around for years and still represents an important name in the business. The current generation was introduced four years ago and considering that the competition is getting tougher these days, it’s no wonder that 2020 Mitsubishi Triton comes with nice updates.
It is a typical facelift, which brings a significantly more attractive front end, as well as a couple of other novelties. On the other side, the engine lineup, as well as the interior design, remains the same.
2020 Mitsubishi Triton Changes
The most important changes for the 2020 Mitsubishi Triton are those in terms of the styling. There is a completely new front face, which is now adapted to the company’s latest design language. The new front end closely resembles the company’s latest crossovers, such as Pajero Sport, Eclipse Cross, and Xpander.
Changes include much sharper headlights and bumper design, as well as a new grille. On the other end, you can notice new taillights design, borrowed directly from the Pajero Sport. The rest of the truck remains the same, although there are details like new color options, wheels etc. While the styling has been significantly updated, the mechanics are pretty much the same.
This update brings a lot of novelties to the exterior design. On the other side, interior changes are minimal. The overall cabin design remains practically the same. The biggest change is a slight revision of the center console. Rest of the cabin remains the same. This means a rather functional cabin, which doesn’t feature too much refinement.
Inside this truck, you won’t find many areas with fine, soft-touch materials. Most of the cabin is made of hard plastics, which seem durable and promise years of use. On the other side, no one can deny the lack of tech features. Pretty much all essentials are here, though not all of them are part of standard equipment.
The 2020 Mitsubishi Triton comes with a couple of interesting novelties in terms of safety. There are some new, advanced safety systems in the offer, including things like emergency braking with pedestrian detection, 360-degree camera, blind-spot monitoring, hill descent control etc.
2020 Mitsubishi Triton Engines
This update won’t bring changes under the hood, so you can count of familiar engine options in the offer. Of course, the most common engine choice is an efficient 2.4-liter turbodiesel, which delivers quite impressive 180 horsepower, considering the engine’s displacement. Therefore, the Triton is pretty much on par with rivals in terms of performances.
On the other side, it features probably the best mpg ratings in the class, even better than Isuzu D-Max. Other than this popular engine, there is also a familiar 2.5-liter gasoline engine, which is good for about 160 horsepower.
On some market, you can also find an older-generation 2.5-liter turbodiesel, which delivers around 110 horsepower. A smaller 2.2-liter diesel is also available in certain markets. This one is good for about 150 horses.
2020 Mitsubishi Triton Release Date and Price
The 2020 Mitsubishi Triton is about to hit the market in the last quarter of the year. The exact date will depend on the market. When it comes to the price, base models usually go around 25.000 dollars.
