The all-new 2019 Mitsubishi L200 will hit the roads once again and it could happen this year. This pickup truck rides on its fifth-generation and the changes for the 2019 model are minor. This model is really famous, however, if you don’t know it under the “L200” name, then Mitsubishi “Triton” is for sure more familiar. Of course, thanks to its popularity, this pickup is offered across the whole world. For an instance, the L200 model also carries different names like Strakar, Magnum, Colt or even Rodeo. Each name is tied to the specific market.
The 2010 L200 will get some minor changes both in and out. The performance is improved as well, and there will be up to three different engine choices. That includes a single gasoline and two diesel powertrains.
2019 Mitsubishi L200 facelift
The forthcoming 2019 Mitsubishi L200 arrives with minor changes only. That includes some exterior tweaks such as more swoopy lines and better aerodynamics. Up front, the bumper gets a new design and the profile will get new wheels.
The chassis sports more high-strength steel so the ride is smoother and the handling is improved as well. The suspension will also suffer some changes, but on the other hand, the platform is still the same. As a matter of fact, the platform is very reliable and Mitsu is using it on so many different models.
2019 Mitsubishi L200 interior design is much better
The interior will look much better than on the current model. A lot of refinement is present so the 2019 Mitsubishi L200 is more competitive in this category now. The materials are premium and the comfort is on another level. There is plenty of soft-touch surfaces and generally, the feel inside the cabin is very upscale.
The visibility is great and the driver’s seat is providing a great outward view thanks to the slightly lower seating position. The latest infotainment system is on the cards and plenty of features that the system supports are standard now. Even the safety department will get some new safety aids, along with the new driver assistance features. All of the changes will for sure help new L200 to compete with the more established rivals.
2019 Mitsubishi L200 engine
There will be three available engines under the hood of the 2019 Mitsubishi L200. The base unit will be a 2.4-liter turbodiesel MIVEC engine. This four-cylinder drivetrain is capable of producing 180 HP and 320 lb-ft of torque.
Another diesel drivetrain is available and it is optional. It is a 2.5-liter unit that generates 176 horses while the 2.4-liter gasoline engine is rated at 140 HP. All three units are offering a 6-speed transmission and an optional all-wheel-drive system.
Fuel economy and towing capacity
Fuel economy will be better for sure, but we don’t have more precise information right now. Tow rating is up to 6800 pounds.
2019 Mitsubishi L200 price and release date
The forthcoming 2019 Mitsubishi L200 will cost about $35,000 or slightly less. We can expect this pickup truck by the end of the current year. Asian and European markets will get L200 or Triton model this year, while the U.S. market will have to wait a little longer.
