The upcoming 2022 Mitsubishi Triton is getting further changes and upgrades. This time, changes are more dramatic. As you probably know, Triton’s sales are not so great at the moment. Whatsoever, we heard a lot of speculations regarding the end of its production. However, Mitsu is willing to give it another try. Significant changes are a must and everything will start from the new architecture.
This platform will be able to accommodate a hybrid system, so Triton could get some sort of electrification. Another great news is the diesel V6 engine that will be on offer too. The Japanese manufacturer will also provide a couple of essential visual upgrades and interior updates. The sales will most likely begin in the last quarter of 2021.
2022 Triton Facelifted, Gets New Colors
The 2022 Mitsubishi Triton will ride on a new platform. It is the architecture made by the Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi alliance and the goal is to provide better ride comfort and possibly a hybrid powertrain. Thanks to that, the new Triton will be slightly longer than its predecessor. On top of that, Triton will gain cosmetic changes, but its recognizable shape will remain.
This pickup truck will arrive with sharper lines and a sportier stance. The rear section will get new taillights, according to reliable sources. The front fascia will also host a couple of upgrades, but we’ll have to wait and see which parts are updated. New exterior colors are another possibility so Triton will hit the roads with a refreshed look.
In terms of interior upgrades, the 2022 Mitsubishi Triton will gain larger touchscreen options. Both standard and optional infotainment displays are larger, but we can’t confirm their size. Mitsubishi will also introduce new upholstery, but we are talking about the standard cloth seats. New model is longer so the interior legroom will be slightly improved too.
Thanks to the new platform, Triton pickup will also arrive with a smoother and quieter ride. Generally, comfort is better and the driving experience is significantly improved. Finally, this model will introduce new, but optional driver-assistance aids.
What About Engine Options?
The most significant changes will happen under the bonnet. The 2022 Mitsubishi Triton will most likely gain its first hybrid powertrain. It is the same hybrid setup that currently powers the Outlander PHEV SUV. You can read a lot of rumors regarding the same hybrid system that will Mitsubishi Pajero offer.
However, this is just another speculation, less likely to happen. We can’t confirm how much power will the Triton Hybrid variant develop. On the other hand, the manufacturer plans to offer a turbodiesel V6 engine, which is another great news. The gasoline V6 engine is a must, but we’ll just wait for Mitsubishi to reveal more details.
2022 Mitsubishi Triton Price, Release Date
The price of the next 2022 Mitsubishi Triton will most likely start at about $40,000. In reality, the price will be slightly lower. Triton will go on sale in the United States as the L200 model. Mitsubishi plans to launch its famous pickup truck later in 2021.
