The upcoming 2022 Mitsubishi Triton is about to gain more significant upgrades. This pickup truck will be a product of the famous alliance in the automotive world. However, it won’t follow German rivals with a V6 turbodiesel engine. On the other hand, a hybrid powertrain will be in the offer. Triton will look closer to the L200 model.
Still, mechanics will be different. Mitsubishi plans to deliver numerous visual updates and more high-tech features are also in the works. The reason for such a radical move is the return of the Ram Dakota pickup truck. The segment is getting tougher and basically, every manufacturer will deliver more drastic changes for 2021.
2022 Mitsubishi Triton Changes
The forthcoming 2022 Mitsubishi Triton is ready for further refreshments. However, the redesign is not on the cards yet. Still, regular mid-cycle exterior refreshments will happen for sure. According to the latest reports, Triton will look closer to the L200 pickup. Renault-Nissan Alliance is working on various improvements and that includes the exterior design. For a start, Triton will share its underpinnings with Navara. The famous F-Alpha platform will suffer a couple of modifications.
Of course, the goal is to provide some sort of electric powertrain, probably hybrid. Moreover, Triton will provide better handling than before. In terms of design, the front fascia will get slightly enlarged features, primarily grille and headlights. The side profile will largely remain and the rear part will host new taillights.
Interior Offers More Comfort
In terms of cabin improvements, the new 2022 Mitsubishi Triton will gain a couple of significant novelties. The current model offers a very practical interior with a solid list of standard features. As for the 2022 model, you can expect better comfort and more high-tech amenities. On top of that, Triton will provide a longer list of standard features on its base trim level. The interior layout will largely remain. Upper trim levels will provide more luxury than ever before.
2022 Mitsubishi Triton Engine Rumors
The all-new 2022 Mitsubishi Triton will get some sort of electrification. Most likely, it will be a hybrid setup, product of the Renault-Nissan Alliance. At this point, we don’t know anything about possible powertrain options. Mitsubishi confirmed these rumors and official details will become available at some point next year. As for conventional engines, everything will stay intact. A 2.3-liter dCi engine provides good efficiency. Moreover, the optional 2.4-liter turbodiesel is available as well. This unit provides 180 hp and 340 lb-ft of torque. Lastly, the 3.6-liter V6 gasoline engine is another engine choice, probably the most reliable output that is in the offer.
Price and Release Date
Once it arrives, a new 2022 Mitsubishi Triton pickup will cost around $35,000. You can get this model in the U.S. markets under the name “L200”. The “Barbarian” and “Strakar” are also the names that you can find in different markets. The manufacturer will release more details closer to the release date. According to numerous reports, 2022 Triton will arrive at some point during 2021. New Triton Hybrid will surely cost over $40,000. Finally, the arriving Ram Dakota is one of the potential competitors.
