2018 Mitsubishi Triton is a pickup truck model of this Japanese car maker. This brilliant pickup, ‘grows’ at the same pace as the company. For a long time, we are witnessing the continued progress of this great vehicle. Namely, Mitsubishi Motors Corporations proves to be one of the world’s leading automobile manufacturers. We should emphasize innovation and continuous improvement of the efficiency of the company’s vehicles. On the other hand, great attention is paid to ecology, that is to reduce emissions of harmful gases.
Mitsubishi Triton is also known as the L200. The name of the vehicle depends on the market in which it is represented. Production of the vehicle is entrusted to the company’s plant in Thailand. Mitsubishi Triton is exported to other markets. Although it is extremely popular in many markets, it has not yet arrived at the most prestigious market, such vehicles, the US market. However, this should be expected to change this by the end of this decade, or at the beginning of the next. With price starts of 32,000 €, this model is considered as a great choice.
This Mitsubishi pickup is designed modeled on the Mitsubishi GR-HEV concept. With less outward appearance and interior modernization, the 2018 Mitsubishi Triton is very similar to its predecessor. However, this pickup has a distinctive design. Combined with great performance and reliability, this is a great recommendation for many customers. As proof of quality and success, Fiat is based on its pickup based on this model.
The outer design abounds with practical solutions. The front fascia is striking and gives a special seal to the appearance of the vehicle. The front part is dominated by a striking engine grille. Also, a harmonious LED headlight design is noticed. On the back side, the accent is put on the purpose of the vehicle, but the likelihood is not lacking.
There is also a new front bumper, which is set up differently from the previous generation of the model. Namely, the angle of installation has changed so that when passing through deep water it does not lift the water to the windscreen.
It should be noted that some of the characteristics of the vehicle are improved. Mitsubishi Triton 2018 has a water gauge depth of 600 mm. In addition, the angle of attack is 30 degrees, while the outgoing angle is 22 degrees. It places him in the rank of top-class off-roader.
2018 Mitsubishi Triton Interior
The new model has undergone some structural changes, compared to the previous models. This increased the efficiency of the vehicle, but it also provided additional comfort inside the cab. The car’s cabin is 20 mm long, but in the previous generation of the model. Also, great attention is paid to the comfort of the passengers. For this reason, an additional tilt of the rear seats is created. With all this, the noise inside the cab is reduced. Thus, the new Mitsubishi Triton pickup justifies the name “Ultimate Sport Utility Truck”, which implies a combination of functionality of the work and luxury of a passenger car.
Although passenger comfort is maximal, high-level versions offer leather seats, gloss black and metallic details, and a host of other benefits. In addition to all this, the vehicle offers a number of state-of-the-art features and systems.
