Mitsubishi's Triton bakkie gets a bold new look

Pricing for the new L200 is yet to be announced, but you can look at the range of existing Mitsubishi L200s listed on our site here.

Mitsubishi has unveiled its new L200 one-ton pickup truck, boasting updated styling, an enhanced 4WD system and a wide range of active safety and driver assistance systems.

"I am fully confident the New TRITON/L200 will meet the diverse needs and wishes of our customers around the world".

The New TRITON/L200 features many detail improvements, directed by the Engineered Beyond Tough development keyphrase, to the durability and reliability sought in commercial use and to the comfort and ride sought in private use. The updated L200 will go on sale in Thailand first followed by its launch in the United Kingdom and other 150 countries by the end of 2019.

As for on-board tech, you can find Forward Collision Mitigation, Blind Spot Warning, Rear Cross Traffic Alert, Ultrasonic Misacceleration Mitigation and the Multi Around Monitor, generating a bird's eye view image of the area surrounding the vehicle. A high quality look is created by soft pad materials and stitching on the floor console, armrests and parking brake.

Buyers of the four-wheel-drive versions of the refreshed Mitsubishi Triton will be able to opt for either the Super-Select 4WD arrangement or the Easy-Select 4WD system, the latter "simplifying switching between drive modes for different road surfaces". Take the Super-Select 4WD and Easy-Select 4WD as prime examples, which feature an Off-Road Mode for additional performance on gravel, mud, snow, and, and rock. Like similar systems in other (usually more expensive) brands, this new mode controls engine power, transmission, and braking to regulate wheel slip. Hill Descent Control is also available, enabling the driver to negotiate steep or slipper descents with more assurance than ever before. The last one reduces accidents from, ahem, "improper use of the accelerator when moving off or reversing in vehicle parks and other confined spaces".

It also features improved braking performance and feel thanks to larger front discs and caliper pistons, with larger rear dampers for improved ride. The current L200 is sold with a 2.4-litre diesel unit.
