Mitsubishi L200 Is A One-Ton Truck We Would Like, But Will Never Get

It is quite a shame that we won’t get a new one-ton truck - the 2019 Mitsubishi L200, otherwise known as the Triton. The new Mitsubishi L200 truck enters a competitive segment with the Nissan Navara, the Ford Ranger, the Toyota Hilux, and the Volkswagen Amarok. Yet, this isn’t an all-new truck. Revealed all the way back in 2014, the Mitsubishi L200 received quite a substantial redesign (a facelift if you will) for the new model year. Mitsubishi is keen to introduce it to 150 markets worldwide and aims to sell 180,000 units per year. Obviously, it is a strategic product, meaning that Mitsubishi went out of their way to make it good. Sustainable growth is one of the main aims for the company that recently almost bankrupted, and this is, along with the Eclipse crossover, a key product for it.

Mitsubishi Ralliart's Comeback Is All Show And No Go

Mitsubishi Ralliart’s Comeback Is All Show And No Go

If you’ve been wishing for the glory days of Mitsubishi’s Ralliart to make a comeback, then prepare to be disappointed

2019 Mitsubishi L200 Series 6

The same-old, reliable Japanese workhorse in new skin

When you’re in the market for a new car, a Mitsubishi vehicle is not generally your first choice. However, it does not mean that the Japanese brand is not doing well here in the States. In fact, Mitsubishi actually outsold Land Rover, Mini, and Volvo in 2018. Maybe it is some kind of sorcery, or Mitsubishi has sprayed some sort of invisible ink, we don’t know, but the Japanese giant has managed to move 118,074 cars in 2018 - all of it without socializing at auto-show gatherings or sponsoring many events. But, this is not the case in the U.K. The company is doing pretty well there and even sells a pickup truck called the L200. Mitsubishi has been producing the L200 pickup truck since 1978; under different monikers, though. The company has launched the sixth-generation now and it looks like a well-rounded package. Will the L200 Series 6 be able to hold its “fort(e)” in the highly competitive market?

2019 Mitsubishi Triton Absolute Concept

2019 Mitsubishi Triton Absolute Concept

Buffed-Up Mitsubishi Triton Absolute Concept Is A Worthy Off-Roader

Introduced at the Bangkok Motor Show, the Mitsubishi Triton Absolute Concept truck is a proposed rugged and performance-orientated off-roader equipped with beefed-up fenders, 2-inches of extra ground clearance, and many off-road worthy additions. Although only a concept, the Triton Absolute gives us a glimpse into what may well become the competitor to the trucks like the Ford Ranger Raptor or the Toyota Hilux Rugged X. While the fate of its production rests in the hands of the interested public, the Triton (L200) Absolute may present the starting point for development of the sporty, hardened version of the next generation Triton. The name Absolute evokes clear notes of enthusiasm and playfulness that characterizes all modern off-road-centric trucks. Unfortunately, even if it reaches production, the Mitsubishi Triton Absolute will not be available in the U.S.

The 2019 Mitsubishi Triton Teaser Shows Off an Outlander-Inspired Face

The 2019 Mitsubishi Triton Teaser Shows Off an Outlander-Inspired Face

The silhouette is soothing, but the face is very familiar

Mitsubishi has been a silent spectator all this while. It’s almost like the Japanese automaker is happy in its own shell, least bothered about what’s going on around it. However, it decided to make a little sound now. Mitsubishi has released the first teaser image of the facelifted Triton, while at the same time commemorating its 40th anniversary in truck manufacturing.

Mitsubishi Pulls Prank on Customers with Drifting Saleswoman

Mitsubishi Pulls Prank on Customers with Drifting Saleswoman

We’ve seen this stunt before – an unsuspecting person rides shotgun with what appears to be a bumbling idiot or ignorant girl, only to be taken for the ride of their life. That’s exactly what happens here in this Mitsubishi bit. It’s still no less exciting.

The star is Leona Chin, a pro driver from Malaysia. Chin poses as a saleswoman in a Mitsubishi dealership trying to answer questions about the new Triton pickup truck. The reaction from her male customers is rather hilarious, ranging from the classic “What’s a pretty girl like you doing here?” to a more chauvinistic, “This is a man’s truck, let me drive.”

I won’t ruin all the video’s surprises and fun, but know that Chin does a great job of showing these dudes how to handle a truck. Chin shows impressive skill in getting the top-heavy and moderately powered Triton truck sideways on dry pavement. So sit back, relax, and enjoy the ride.

2015 Mitsubishi Triton

2015 Mitsubishi Triton

Mitsubishi has been making its pickup truck since 1978, though it wasn’t called the Triton until the truck’s second generation came along in 1987. That first generation truck was even sold inside the U.S. as a badge-engineered Dodge called the Ram 50. It competed against the likes of the Ford Courier and Chevrolet LUV. Though the story of the U.S-sold trucks continues on, the Triton moved onward in the global market. The second generation lasted from 1987 through 1996 and was styled much like the Toyota Hilux. In the latter parts of 1996, the third generation Triton came out and lasted through 2004. Lastly, the forth-generation Triton debuted for the 2006 model year and was rather stylized by comparison to its predecessors.

Now for 2015, Mitsubishi is bringing out the fifth-generation of Triton trucks — one that boasts a more car-like interior and more truck-like capabilities. Two turbo-diesel options and a gasoline engine are available A new six-speed manual transmission is now offered, along with a five-speed automatic.

It’s new interior promises more creature comforts with things like a touchscreen infotainment system, a driver’s information screen in the gauge cluster, and much more sound deadening than before.

Though the Triton will never make it to the U.S., the Triton will makes its way into Australia, Thailand, the Middle East, Europe, Africa, Latin American, and other countries in the ASEAN Oceania region.
