The test mule of the new-generation 2024 Mitsubishi L200 was spotted testing in Europe last week. The new pickup truck is unfortunately heavily camouflaged, but this didn’t stop us from seeing many changes. First of all, it seems that the caught prototype follows in the footsteps of the Outlander. It comes with the same massive grille that is flanked by daytime running lights with integrated turn signals. The headlights are also revised, and they reside further below, with more chrome trim.
As for the powertrain, many believe that the L200 will be powered by the same plug-in hybrid we saw on the Outlander PHEV model. This means it should use a 2.4-liter, 4-cylinder engine, two electric motors, and a large battery.
2024 Mitsubishi L200 Redesign
The new spy shots are available, and the new 2024 Mitsubishi L200 prototype is unfortunately heavily camouflaged. First and foremost, the front fascia appears refreshed, with similar design language to the Outlander PHEV model. The identical massive grille is present and is flanked by daytime running lights.
We also noticed a new headlight, but it is much tinier compared to the ones on the latest Outlander. The rear is also revised, featuring a new tailgate and taillights.
What’s New Inside?
On the inside, the forthcoming 2024 Mitsubishi L200 is expected to offer more comfort and plenty of new technologies. Unfortunately, the caught prototype is heavily camouflaged and it hides what is changed. From reports that are available, the forthcoming truck will probably introduce a new interior. The seating layout will be unchanged, which means there should be room for up to five passengers.
The new infotainment system is another probability, and expect standard Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and an onboard Wi-Fi hotspot. On the safety side, the standard package includes active brake assist, rear cross-traffic alert, blind-spot monitoring, and parking sensors with active parking assist.
2024 Mitsubishi L200 Engine Rumors
Many reports indicate that a plug-in hybrid will power the new 2024 Mitsubishi L200 truck. From what we heard, the new truck will probably borrow the same system as the Outlander PHEV model. So, if this comes true, we can expect the same 2.4-liter 4-cylinder engine that’s paired with two electric motors. Combined, the system should produce a total output of 221 horsepower.
Also, the system draws energy from a lithium-ion battery pack, providing around 24 miles solely on battery power. Unfortunately, we don’t know anything about charging support but expect at least 40 minutes for a full charge with a DC fast-charging station. Diesel engines could potentially be joined by a plug-in hybrid powertrain.
How Much Will Cost the New 2024 Mitsubishi L200?
The new 2024 Mitsubishi L200, also known as the Triton in some markets, will reportedly hit the stores in the fall of 2023. Luckily, the prototype of this truck was caught testing on a public road, and it has an identical front fascia to the latest Outlander SUV. We expect it to share the same platform as well as the same PHEV system. As for price, it should be around $32,000 for the model with basic options.
