Japanese manufacturer prepares some updates for one of its best-known models. According to latest reports, it seems that 2019 Mitsubishi Triton is going to come with few updates. The legendary truck has been present for more than four decades. For all these years, we have seen several generations and all of them were highly competitive on the market. The current model follows this trend and it is one of the most competitive mid-size trucks around.
Considering that the current version is present since 2014, it is very likely that 2019 Triton is going to receive few updates. However, it is still unclear is this going to be facelift or just some smaller updates. Still, its age indicates that this could be a real mid-cycle refresh, which could include various changes, not just visual but in many other aspects as well.
2019 Mitsubishi Triton changes
Changes for the 2019 Mitsubishi Triton are pretty much certain. Still, we didn’t manage yet to find out what kind of changes will come. According to some reports, this could be only a minor update. However, we believe that the company could go for a complete mid-cycle refresh. In this case, changes will be numerous. First of all, we will see a new styling. The updated design language would be nice. Expect to see various modifications, especially at the front, where could see a new pair of headlights, updated grille, bumper etc. Other areas could suffer as well.
On the other side, we don’t expect bigger medication on chassis and under the hood. Mechanically, this truck should continue in the same way, although minor tweaks are still possible. When it comes to the interior design, some changes are expected, both in terms of styling and new equipment.
2019 Mitsubishi Triton interior design
The cabin of this truck already looks spectacular, considering its main purpose. So, further changes could make this interior even better. Compared to the most of competitors, this truck looks much more car-like. It features a high level of comfort and convenience, while a list of standard equipment is impressive as well. For this update, we could see several tweaks to dashboard and instrument cluster. Still, the core of this update will probably be new standard equipment. Besides soft-touch materials, expect to see a long list of hi-tech features, as well as advanced safety systems. Of course, most of them will be optional, but base models will be decently equipped too.
2019 Mitsubishi Triton engine options
Although smaller than engines from rival trucks, a 2.5-liter diesel from 2019 Mitsubishi Triton will have so much to offer. This engine is highly efficient. Despite the smaller size, its total output goes up to 181 horsepower and 317 pound-feet of torque. These numbers are more than enough for great capabilities. Such great efficiency brings another benefit – fuel economy. With this engine, this truck is capable to make 51 miles per gallon, which is undoubtedly the best result in the class.
The 2019 Mitsubishi Triton will be available in other powertrain variants as well. There is a familiar 2.4-liter gasoline engine for the North American market, but also a smaller 2.4-liter diesel from Fiat. All engines could be paired with either manual or automatic transmission.
2019 Mitsubishi Triton release date and price
The 2019 Mitsubishi Triton will come somewhere in the last quarter of the year. Although updated, it will probably keep the same price. The base model will go around 25.000 dollars, which is an average sum for the class.
