The restyling of the Mitsubishi L200 is about to be officially unveiled
If there is a model for the Mitsubishi Motors strong> is known worldwide for its pick up L200 (called Triton in other markets). This popular model has been on sale for over 40 years and even, in this fifth generation, it has a twin brother in Fiat , the FullBack . However, since it arrived on the market in the year 2014, it had not undergone changes that would update those details that had not finished coagulating.
Therefore, now that half of your business cycle has been fulfilled, the signature of the three diamonds has decided to release a first teaser in which advance what will be the changes you will receive L200 strong>. In the image we can only see some features of his frontal which, how could it be otherwise, will maintain the family air that recently launched the Eclipse Cross . . p>
The new optical groups will abandon the teardrop shape to be much thinner and angled. These flank a grid that seems to leave behind the vertical slats to move to horizontals in which accommodates in its central area the three diamonds that identify the logo of Mitsubishi . Together, these changes evolve the dynamic shield language that is highlighted by the chrome moldings that look like fangs.
Taking into account what has been seen, the aesthetic L200 (at least the front) will be more muscular and dynamic. However, we do not know the evolution that the rest of the views of the model will suffer, because if they want to contain the production costs, they must be subtle. In addition, we do not know if they will take advantage to introduce changes in the passenger compartment , so we will have to wait for news.
The mechanical range of the renewed Mitsubishi L200 is a mystery, although it is very possible that it remains unchanged. In any case, rumors suggest that it could receive a more powerful version equipped with a DI-D diesel block with 2.4 liters and 180 HP of power. This engine can be associated with a manual gearbox of 6 ratios as well as an automatic one with 5 interlocks. The traction will be to the previous axis or to the four wheels.
We will have to be attentive to the next news coming from the Japanese firm. In addition, the half-life update of the Fiat FullBack will not take long to arrive, so it will be a good time to see the evolution of the Italian model.
