The capable mid-size truck is about to get a mid-cycle refresh for the next year, as 2019 Mitsubishi L200. This nameplate has been around for many years and it has a reputation of a highly capable truck. Attractive styling, potent but highly efficient engine and plenty of refinement are some of the truck’s strong points. The current model has been since 2015 and it is time for an update. For this occasion, the Japanese carmaker will probably focus on styling, while the mechanical aspect of the truck is about to remain unchanged.
2019 Mitsubishi L200 Changes
This update will bring a lot of 2019 Mitsubishi L200 changes for sure. As we already mentioned, the focus should be on styling, where the new version is about to adopt the brand’s newest design language. Other than that, 2019 Mitsubishi L200 specs will probably remain the same. In practice, this means a completely new front end, which is about to get new headlights, new grille, bumpers and much more, in order to closely resemble the 2013 GR-HEV concept, which introduced the new design language of this manufacturer.
On the inside, we could see several novelties as well. Despite the fact that this truck comes with a lot of refinement, the cabin isn’t the most attractive in the class and looks a little bit outdated. So, we could see some modifications for the next year. What this update could exactly bring, it is hard to tell at the moment. Most likely, we will see some modifications on the dashboard, as well as on the instrument cluster. Also, expect to see new color schemes and similar things. Finally, the 2019 Mitsubishi L200 interior should be characterized by more standard features. additional standard equipment is always welcome, so we have no doubt that Mitsubishi will offer something interesting
When will Mitsubishi L200 be redesigned?
The current generation of the truck is still quite fresh, despite this update. It came three years ago, so we are pretty sure that the redesign won’t happen so soon. Considering Mitsubishi’s usual production cycle, it is very possible to see another major update until the redesign.
2019 Mitsubishi L200 engines
The most certain thing about this update is that the engine offer will remain the same. The strongest points of this truck are highly-efficient engines. The 2019 Mitsubishi L200 diesel will continue with a familiar 2.4-liter inline-four unit, which offers plenty of power and refinement. It is good for about 180 horsepower and 320 pound-feet of torque, which are pretty respectable numbers, especially if we consider that most of the competitors feature larger and thirstier engines. This one offers not only a great amount of power but also excellent fuel economy.
On some markets, there is also an older-generation 2.5-liter diesel engine in the offer. This unit may be less efficient, but its excellent reliability and durability are the reasons why this engine still can be found under the hood of this truck. It is good for about 180 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque.
Finally, there is something for petrol lovers. It is a 2.4-liter inline-four engine, which is good for about 150 horsepower and 160 pound-feet of torque. This would be a great choice if you don’t need a capable towing machine, but more refined drive experience.
When 2019 Mitsubishi L200 will come and how much will it cost?
The 2019 Mitsubishi L200 is about to come sometime in the second half of the year. However, we are still waiting for some more precise date. On the other side, we have no doubt that the new model will continue with the same price, which means around 22.000 dollars for the base model.
