2019 Mitsubishi L200 Redesign, Specs, Features – New Style For Japan pickup – Mitsubishi is revising the L200 pickup. The manufacturer speaks of a new generation. Above all, the front will be completely redesigned, with the addition of modern engines, current consumer electronics, and new assistance systems.
The Mitsubishi L200 is one of the world’s most successful midsize pickups and is now a true classic in the program of the Japanese. 1973 appeared the first version. With the change to the L200 generation 2 (1991) also started the sales in Germany in 1993. The L200 has always striven to be more comfortable and elegant than its rough-legged competitors. And with the Super Select all wheel drive, a permanent 4×4 with front wheel drive disengageable and off-road gear reduction, the Mitsubishi L200 has a unique technical position on the market today.
2019 Mitsubishi L200 Redesign – What’s New?
The fifth generation of the Mitsubishi L200 was unveiled in 2014 and launched in 2015 in Europe. This also sets the direction for the new model, which celebrates its world premiere on November 9, 2018. Although Mitsubishi speaks in a preliminary information of the 6th generation. However, Erlkönig photos of camouflaged vehicles suggest that the bodywork basic structure with the characteristic curved cabin shape is retained towards the loading area. It is, therefore, more of a very extensive facelift, which also corresponds to the usual four-year cycle in the pickup segment.
The first shy teaser photo, with only the headlights peeping out of a Photoshop dust cloud, reveals where the journey is going. In terms of design, the Mitsubishi Pajero Sport has given the line priority. That’s obvious anyway, because the big SUV Pajero Sport is essentially based on the technology of the L200 and is built like this one in Thailand. The Pajero Sport is offered primarily in Asia and Australia.
2019 Mitsubishi L200 Interior Features
In addition to the extensive facelift is also a large-scale renovation of the interior announced. Again, the Pajero Sport should give the current accents in the dashboard design, steering wheel and seats. The multimedia system will be upgraded, new security assistance systems, city emergency brake assistance, and distance-controlled cruise control are expected. Especially in this regard, the current L200 is a little behind the times.
There must also be an update for the engines, which in the future will also be subject to stricter limit values for light commercial vehicles. Here we expect a revision of the current 2.4-liter engine, which is currently offered in two performance levels (154 and 181 hp). As was the case with the launch of the current L200, Bangkok will be the premiere venue in Thailand in November. Thailand is not only home to the L200 plant, it is also the world’s most important sales market for the right-hand-drive pickup. The first left-hand drive European models are expected in the summer of 2019.
