The all-new 2022 Mitsubishi Triton will be an exciting model. The famous pickup truck will arrive later this year and it will introduce essential upgrades. For a start, the Nissan-Renault-Mitsubishi alliance is reportedly working on a new platform. The goal is to create an architecture that will accommodate a hybrid powertrain option.
On top of that, the new Triton will gain a diesel V6 engine as well. However, the focus is not exclusively on the performances. New Triton will also arrive with some cosmetic upgrades. The interior will introduce more high-tech amenities and the new Triton will cost more than its predecessor.
2022 Triton Facelift
The forthcoming 2022 Mitsubishi Triton is getting a new platform. According to Mitsubishi, a new architecture is in the development stage and it will be able to accommodate a hybrid system. Thanks to that, the new Triton will be a slightly larger truck than the outgoing model. Triton will look slightly different, thanks to the latest visual upgrades.
This model will once again provide a recognizable design. However, the front fascia will get various updates. Moreover, new and sharper lines will help Triton to look even more modern and sharper. The rear section will host new taillights and the manufacturer will deliver more lightweight materials as well. Overall, we can’t call this a redesign, but some exterior upgrades are major.
Modern and Comfortable Interior
The interior of the 2022 Mitsubishi Triton will also introduce some interesting updates. First of all, Triton comes with a larger display and an updated infotainment system. On top of that, the manufacturer plans to deliver new cloth upholstery that will be standard in the base trim level. New platform will force Triton to grow in size, so we expect even more interior room.
The headroom should remain intact, but better legroom is great news. New architecture will also deliver a comfier ride and generally, a better driving experience. Lastly, the Triton truck will arrive with more standard equipment and more safety aids.
New Hybrid Powertrain Option
As we said, the biggest change will happen under the hood. New 2022 Mitsubishi Triton will introduce a hybrid powertrain option. The hybrid system is borrowed from the Outlander PHEV SUV. However, Pajero Sport is an SUV based on Triton and this model will get some sort of electrification as well. This is more than enough for rumors to get started. However, Triton will definitely arrive with the same configuration as the Outlander model.
While we don’t know the exact specs, a hybrid powertrain won’t generate significantly more power. The goal is to offer an efficient engine option. On the other hand, Mitsubishi will introduce a new diesel engine, for those who need more power. A turbodiesel V6 engine will generate a lot of torque so the Triton truck will become a real towing machine. Reportedly, it will be the same unit that powers the Volkswagen Amarok pickup truck. We don’t want to predict anything, but the gasoline V6 engine should remain the standard powertrain option.
2022 Mitsubishi Triton Release Date, Price
The price of the 2022 Mitsubishi Triton will now start at almost $40,000. It isn’t as affordable a truck as it was a few years ago, but Triton continues to impress. This model will arrive in the United States as well, and it is the Mitsubishi L200 variant. The sales will begin at some point during the second half of 2021.
