Last year model marked the beginning of Triton’s fifth-generation. Now, the 2019 Mitsubishi Triton will hit the markets once again, so don’t expect any significant improvements. This pickup truck will arrive with the slight front end changes and the interior will for sure get some innovations.
The 2019 Mitsubishi Triton will arrive in three different body styles and three powertrain options, with two diesel engines among them and one gasoline unit. Fuel economy is great and tow rating is among the best-in-class.
2019 Mitsubishi Triton front fascia looks more aggressive
After being spotted in Australia, the 2019 Mitsubishi Triton will not bring plenty of improvements. According to spy shots, the front end will get the wider bumper and smaller headlights. Moreover, those headlights are now angular and the front fascia looks more aggressive. To the sides, wheel arches are looking slightly different and are more similar to the ones on Pajero models.
The rear end will look curvy as before, on the other hand, the tub is now squarer, just like the taillights. The upcoming Triton will ride on the same platform as before, the aerodynamics are a great and current suspension is working wonders for this pickup. High-strength steel is still present and new Triton looks really mean, especially up front.
2019 Mitsubishi Triton interior improvements are minimal
For the pickup segment, the 2019 Mitsubishi Triton offers one of the best interior in its class. However, improvements are minimal, but there is no need for any bigger changes. Remember, last year’s model suffered a massive revamp. What Mitsubishi delivers for the upcoming model are more standard features and a different dashboard.
To be more precise, the dash is the same, it is only a slight design change and minimal buttons layout difference. The materials are great and the feel inside the cabin is premium. For sure, the 2019 Triton will become one of the most modern pickups at the moment. It is hard to compete with such a pleasing interior that comes with plenty of standard equipment.
