2020 Mitsubishi L200 Price, Specs & Release Date
Here is the New Updates Of 2020 Mitsubishi L200. New Mitsubishi has launched New L200 in Bangkok, although there is no clarity whether this Truck will be marketed in the United States or not, the Mitsubishi L200 is still a very important product for Japanese manufacturers.
The current L200, generation five, was presented to the world in 2015 and is a compact pickup, a North American concept, a copy in the ‘1-ton’ category. The workhorse, of course, uses a ladder chassis and is available in the here as a Club Cab and as a Crew Cab, although only the first is available as a regular grayscale version. Of course, that has to do with Dutch legislation in that area. Back to the car itself. The front and rear of Mitsubishi’s workhorse are quite heavy under the knife.
2020 Mitsubishi L200 Redesign
The 2020 Mitsubishi L200 gets a new face, a front that carries Mitsubishi’s ‘Dynamic Shield’ design. We know this from cars like the Outlander and the Eclipse Cross and is less pronounced on the ASX. In fact, it is no surprise that the L200 also gets this front. In various markets, Mitsubishi sells the Pajero Sport / Challenger, in fact, the SUV version of the L200. That car was presented in a completely new form in 2016 and also bears this new front. At the back of the L200, we find light units that are square and have a new layout for the L200. From top to bottom runs a red stripe that in terms of shape is similar to the rear light of the aforementioned Pajero Sport.
Although cars like the L200 in the here do not fly over the counter in large numbers, the car for Mitsubishi is of great importance. In Thailand, where the car is being built and sold as Triton, just under half of the almost 900,000 cars sold annually are pickups of this category. The Isuzu D-Max, Ford Ranger and Toyota Hilux find more favorable deduction, but the L200 is a very important car with 40,000 copies sold.
2020 Mitsubishi L200 Powertrain
Mitsubishi has revised the four-wheel drive and promises better off-road capabilities. The car is introduced to new safety systems. The 4WD versions are now in various driving modes, think of Gravel, Snow, Sand, and Rock. Mitsubishi delivers the current L200 with a 154 or 181 hp 2.4-diesel engine and that seems to stay that way. However, the brand changes the five-speed automatic transmission for a copy with six moves. A manual transmission remains available. Mitsubishi further states that it has improved the braking system. The car has larger brake discs and adapted pistons in the brake calipers. The manufacturer explains that extra attention has been paid to comfort. Particularly the damping on the rear axle has been addressed.
Inside the materials have been improved and Mitsubishi applies new accents, among other things around the ventilation grids.
Active Safety / Driver Assistance Systems
New Mitsubishi L200 retains the current model’s high-durability, high-reliability ladder-type frame, and high impact-safety cabin structure while featuring class-leading advanced active safety and driver assistance systems.
Systems providing all-direction safety and reassurance are:
- Forward Collision Mitigation (FCM), which can detect vehicles and pedestrians ahead
- Blind Spot Warning (BSW with LCA), which helps avoid sideswiping another vehicle when changing lanes by detecting vehicles behind or at the rear quarter and alerting the driver with an audible alert and flashing light in their door mirror
- Rear Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA) which, in the same way, helps avoid collisions when reversing
- Ultrasonic Misacceleration Mitigation System (UMS) which reduces accidents resulting from improper use of the accelerator when moving off or reversing in car parks and other confined spaces.
For the time being, only the international information about the 2020 Mitsubishi Triton L200 has been released. Specific information for the Dutch market will follow at a later stage. Do not expect him to enter the market until the summer of 2019. The car is being built in the Laem Chabang factory in Thailand. Mitsubishi has been building pickups for forty years and has built a total of 4.7 million units. After the Outlander (Sport) it is for Mitsubishi the most sold car. 15 percent of the Mitsubishi’s sold worldwide is an L200. The pickup is for sale in about 150 countries. Mitsubishi annually wants to sell some 180,000 copies.
