The all-new 2022 Mitsubishi Triton could be the next-gen model. If this truly happens, then Triton is about to gain significant upgrades. At this moment, this is just a rumor, but the new generation makes perfect sense. Some reports are already writing about the redesign so the new 2022 Triton should arrive with new looks. On top of that, the interior will gain numerous updates, but we can’t say if the cabin design will be new.
The most interesting category is performance. Mitsubishi likes to offer new engines in the next-gen vehicles, so Triton will surely gain a new powertrain in the future. Whatsoever, this pickup truck could arrive with a new hybrid powertrain. The sales will begin later in 2021 and Mitsubishi will cooperate with Nissan in building the new-gen Triton truck.
2022 Triton Redesign
The forthcoming 2022 Mitsubishi Triton will introduce a redesign. The exterior will show completely new looks with more modern features. As we said, Nissan will have a great impact on the new Triton, especially in visual terms. Thanks to that, the new Triton will gain a lot of changes. For a start, the platform won’t change. This means the truck’s dimensions are intact. Still, this architecture could suffer a lot of modifications if the manufacturer truly plans to introduce hybrid power.
The vehicle’s shape remains, but a new one will look sharper and sportier. The stance is definitely more athletic, but some stylish upgrades are also present. The Triton model will gain completely new front fascia and the rear section will host brand-new taillights. New exterior paints are a must and we also expect to see upgrades though all trim levels.
The interior of the 2022 Mitsubishi Triton also comes with plenty of refreshments. The automaker will provide a new and larger infotainment touchscreen. Moreover, the updated infotainment system will be the best one so far.
Mitsubishi will also deliver new upholstery, so comfort is improved too. The cabin design is still a mystery, but its layout isn’t, as everything will remain the same. New driver-assistance aids will be optional, but Triton will surely provide a lot of standard equipment.
Hybrid Powertrain Borrowed From the Outlander SUV
Most likely, the biggest upgrade will happen under the bonnet. The 2022 Mitsubishi Triton should hit the dealerships with the hybrid powertrain for the first time. Not surprisingly, the Mitsubishi-Nissan alliance opted for the Outlander SUV and its hybrid setup. Interestingly, but Outlander could also borrow its powertrain from the Mitsubishi Pajero SUV.
It is a 2.4-liter engine that works with the plug-in hybrid setup. This output will generate around 210 horsepower. Moreover, new CVT transmission is on offer and Triton PHEV will provide 22 miles of electric driving range. As for the gasoline and diesel engines, Mitsubishi will announce more details in the coming weeks.
2022 Mitsubishi Triton Release Date, Price
The next-gen 2022 Mitsubishi Triton will cost around $40,000. As you probably know, you can get your Triton model in the United States, under the “L200” name. The sales will begin in the second half of 2021, most likely this summer.
