The approaching 2020 Mitsubishi L200 is ready to hit the markets in the coming months. This pickup truck presents a fifth-generation and some upgrades are on the line. This pickup truck is famous worldwide, and if “L200” doesn’t sound familiar, perhaps “Triton” is more famous nameplate.
The all-new 2020 Mitsubishi L200 comes with a couple of styling tweaks, however, this pickup will ride on the same platform as before. The styling is not evolving, even that we are speaking about fifth-generation already. Furthermore, both styling and platform proved reliable so no significant changes are needed. Plenty of swoopy lines runs all over the L200’s body and the aerodynamics are great. A bumper is now wider and there is a new set of wheels available. The chassis now comes with more high-strength steel and the handling is better. The ride feels smooth thanks to the slightly retuned suspension. It also comes with the same Dynamic Shield design elements that are also present in model Pajero Sport. Furthermore, the newest model will be a mix of Eclipse Cross and Expander.
The interior of the forthcoming 2019 Mitsubishi L200 is improved a lot. There is plenty of refinement inside the cabin and we must say that the L200 model is ready to compete with more famous rivals in the interior segment. The materials are upscale and the comfort is better as a result. The surfaces are soft and it feels premium. It will also get some features that are present in model Nissan’s Navara NP300. The visibility is better than ever, and the seats are positioned in that way so the driver has a good specter and outward view. The infotainment system is also new and some optional features are now standard. It comes with a 6.1-inch touchscreen as standard and 7-inch touch screen as optional. Also, features like a manual or automatic dual zone climate control, premium sound system, leather seats, navigation and more will be present. We also expect this model to come with same four levels of trims: Exceed, GLS, GLX and GLX Plus.
The new 2020 Mitsubishi L200 will arrive with three engine options. The base engine is a turbodiesel 2.4-liter MIVEC unit with four cylinders. This mill is capable of producing up to 180 HP and 320 lb-ft of torque. The second choice is another turbodiesel engine. A 2.5-liter drivetrain returns 176 HP, while the gasoline 2.4-liter engine burst 140 HP. All three engines are available with a 6-speed gearbox and with an all-wheel-drive setup. As a result, towing capacity is increased to 6800 pounds.
2020 Mitsubishi L200 Release Date and Price
The upcoming 2020 Mitsubishi L200, or “Triton” will cost around $33,500. On the other hand, there is no official release date yet, however, we can expect new L200 to go on sale later this year. This pickup will firstly hit the European and Asian dealerships, and there is a possibility of expanding the sale on the American soil.
