The new 2024 Mitsubishi Triton is prepared for more improvements. We already have the first spy images, giving us more information about this new model. Surprisingly, the prototype that was reportedly spied is the final product. The new L200/Triton truck will receive numerous aesthetic improvements and adopt the Outlander SUV’s appearance.
Mitsubishi didn’t reveal enough about this new truck. According to numerous sources, the diesel powertrain will be used in some regions of the world. The Nissan Navara will be heavily influenced by the Triton model, and a plug-in hybrid powertrain might potentially be added to the roster. Still, we are waiting for Mitsu to provide official details.
Mitsubishi Triton Spy Photos
First spy shots of the 2024 Mitsubishi Triton are here. From what we could tell, the new Triton’s front fascia will be totally updated to fit the style of the company’s newest SUVs. The Triton truck seems to adhere to Mitsubishi’s current approach to front-end design. The new and larger grille is there, along with refreshed daytime running lights.
Overall, the appearance is much more inviting than it was previously, and we really like the new headlamps with their chrome accents dividing them. This is exactly what Mitsubishi’s current lineup of SUVs offers. While the Nissan Navara truck will be heavily influenced by the Triton/L200 variant, the Outlander SUV is unmistakably present.
The interior of the 2024 Mitsubishi Triton will undergo a complete overhaul. Unfortunately, spy pictures did not show any cabin improvements. Since the seating configuration won’t change, up to five passengers should have enough room. The automotive brand will definitely release the newest infotainment system, followed by the most recent safety aids.
New phone integrations and an inbuilt Wi-Fi connection should also be standard. Naturally, Mitsubishi will emphasize technology, so we anticipate more standard equipment than before. We also anticipate seeing a new dashboard and steering wheel since the interior design of the cabin is likely to depart from the current one.
Is Hybrid Powertrain On the Cards?
The performance of the 2024 Mitsubishi Triton will likely improve. On the other hand, we read a couple of reports that are strongly predicting new plug-in hybrid powertrain. This would be a great addition to the lineup, both in terms of power and efficiency. Of course, the engine lineup of the L200 and Triton models will be different. We think the L200 truck is more likely to gain a hybrid setup. Still, Triton will surely get some sort of improvement.
As the Triton is a truck offered outside the United States, it offers a diesel engine. It is a 2.4-liter turbo-four unit with 178 horsepower and 317 lb-ft of torque. There is also a 2.4-liter petrol engine with 126 hp and 143 lb-ft of torque. A five-speed manual transmission is still on offer, while the diesel comes with a six-speed automatic gearbox.
2024 Mitsubishi Triton Price, Release Date
While we are waiting for more details regarding the price and new hybrid powertrain, one thing is certain. The 2024 Mitsubishi Triton will hit the dealerships next fall. Before that happens, we will see the official debut by the end of 2022.
