The re-styled pick-up will be going on sale in Thailand - where it is built - branded as the Triton later this month, and will roll out in other Asian markets before touching down in the United Kingdom in Summer 2019.

Sales will commence first in Thailand on 17 November, before the model is introduced in 150 other countries around the globe.

Osamu Masuko, Mitsubishi Motors CEO stated: "The new Mitsubishi L200 is one of our most important global strategic models".

The new Triton has newly sculpted body curves with contrasting sharp lines, extended wheel flares and bright accents, which add modernity to it.

Besides the sheetmetal, the cabin has been enhanced with new trim around the switch panel and the air outlets. "Its success will accelerate the momentum of the company's sustainable growth". Mitsubishi also highlights the soft-touch materials and stitching on the floor console, the armrests, and the parking brake.

- Rear Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA) which, in the same way, helps avoid collisions when reversing. The latter was developed to reduce the risks of accidents caused by the improper use of the accelerator pedal when entering or exiting confined spaces.

The new L200 has also been fitted with larger front discs and calipers, larger rear dampers, and has replaced the current five-speed automatic transmission with a six-speed one, for smoother acceleration and improved refinement.
