The upcoming 2020 Mitsubishi Triton is the last model of its fifth-generation. For that reason, this pickup truck will get some further refreshments. The 2021 model will arrive as brand new and it will arrive with significant upgrades. For now, the 2020 Triton is confirmed and we already saw spy shots. Most of the changes will happen up front when it comes to the exterior design.
The interior of this model is stylish and techy. Even the new powertrain is a possibility but we’ll have to wait for the official confirmation. Triton is a very famous pickup truck, especially in Asia and Australia. If you never heard of this model, maybe the L200 name sounds more familiar. It is basically the same model that is sold in the U.S.
2020 Mitsubishi Triton exterior updates
The 2020 Mitsubishi Triton has been spotted on the testing. For that reason, many exterior changes are visible. The biggest upgrade will happen up front where Triton will get a new face. The headlights are now separated from the running lights. Between them, a light strip is clearly visible and it looks brilliant. The new front grille is in the offer and it will be narrower than the previous one.
Air intakes are not sitting so low as before and the hood will get a more aerodynamic look. To the side, the 2020 Mitsubishi Triton will stay intact and the rear end now sports a new pair of taillights. Even the wheels are wearing camouflage, for some reason. Rear bumper perhaps looks bolder but it is actually smaller than on the current model.
2020 Mitsubishi Triton interior is one of the best
The interior of the current Triton is perfectly crafted. This pickup truck will for sure get some further upgrades from the inside. However, it is too early to speak about them as the spy shots didn’t provide any clue about the new interior. Have in mind the new generation will arrive in 2021, and that’s when you can expect significant changes.
For now, the interior will probably suffer minor refinements only. Knowing that the interior design and layout will remain literally the same. We can only expect some shifts between the standard and optional equipment. On top of that, heavier use of upscale materials could additionally improve the level of comfort.
2020 Mitsubishi Triton powertrain
Under the hood, the 2020 Mitsubishi Triton won’t get any changes. It means the same three engines will power this pickup truck. The standard unit is a 2.4-liter MIVEC. This four-cylinder diesel engine is producing 180 horsepower and 320 lb-ft of torque. A 2.5-liter turbodiesel is an optional powertrain that will deliver up to 175 horses and 340 lb-ft of twists.
The third option is the gasoline 2.4-liter that returns 140 HP. Some rumors are saying the diesel drivetrains will get a minor boost when it comes to torque figures. All three engines are available with the 6-speed automatic transmission. An all-wheel-drive setup will be optional as before.
2020 Mitsubishi Triton price and production
The all-new 2020 Mitsubishi Triton starts at $32,500. This pickup truck will firstly hit the Asian and Australian markets in the coming weeks. The 2020 Mitsubishi L200 is an American variant that will hit the U.S. markets at the beginning of 2020.
