The current generation of this mid-size truck has been around for more than four years and after the recent update, we expect it will continue for several more years. The recent refresh has brought a lot of novelties, so we are pretty sure that the 2020 Mitsubishi L200 will continue without more important changes. It will continue to deliver strong off-road performances and great utility characteristics. After the recent facelift, it also looks very attractive, definitely one of the better-looking models in the class. On the other side, the interior design remains pretty much unchanged since the initial launch. Same goes for the powertrain department, which is one of the most efficient in the class.
The 2020 Mitsubishi L200 could possibly introduce a few more color options and a couple of similar additions, Other than that, things should remain pretty much the same. Therefore, don’t expect to see 2020 Mitsubishi L200 any earlier than usual.
2020 Mitsubishi L200 Redesign
The 2020 Mitsubishi L200 will continue to represent the fifth generation of the Mitsubishi’s famous line of truck, which rides for more than four decades. The current generation has been around 2015 and it already received a facelift. Still, the overall layout remains largely the same, based on the same platform that underprints Mitsubishi Pajero Sport. The two models are similar in many ways and share most of the mechanical parts. In terms of size, the L200 measures around 118 inches, while the overall length goes around 205 inches. The height goes over 70 inches. Like the current and all previous versions, the 2020 Mitsubishi L200 will continue with familiar cab designs in the offer, with either 2- or 4-door layout.
2020 Mitsubishi L200 Styling
In terms of the styling, the recent facelift has brought pretty significant changes. Practically, every piece of sheet metal is new. Of course, the focus was on the front end, as the new model came with a completely new face. There is a completely new grille, headlights, bumper and all other parts. The overall approach is much sharper and the new version closely follows the brand’s latest design language, and looks pretty close to models like Eclipse Cross and Pajero Sport models. Also, the new version gets more muscles around wheels with new fenders, while the rear end has been highlighted by new teardrop taillights design etc. From the side, you can easily notice new wheels. All in all, these changes were numerous, so we have no doubt that the 2020 Mitsubishi L200 will continue in the same way. The best we could get are new color options and similar kinds of upgrades.
2020 Mitsubishi L200 Interior
While the exterior suffered a lot, the interior remained largely the same and we presume things will remain unchanged until a complete redesign. Therefore, the 2020 Mitsubishi L200 is about to continue with the same cabin layout. The recent update didn’t bring many important changes. Some of the most notable additions are rear air ventilation and complete suite of new safety features. This truck now comes with blind spot monitoring, automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, rear cross-traffic alert, low-speed miss-acceleration mitigation
On the other side, the overall cabin design remains the same. We didn’t see any change on the dashboard and we want in the next few years either. The overall layout is rather functional than stylish, so you won’t see too many shiny details, nor many surfaces that are soft on touch. A large touchscreen interface is available too, and it is nicely integrated in the dashboard, so it doesn’t disturb the overall simplistic design approach.
2020 Mitsubishi L200 Engines
When it comes to the powertrain, things are pretty familiar with the 2020 Mitsubishi L200. This truck features a diesel engine that is smaller compared to most of its competitors. It is a 2.4-liter turbodiesel unit, which is good for about 180 horsepower, which is pretty typical amount of power for the class. However, its smaller displacement means better efficiency as well. In practice, this means that the L200 features highest mpg ratings in the class. On some markets, you can also find an older-generation 2.5-liter turbodiesel, capable of producing around 135 horsepower.
Fortunately, there is something for gasoline lovers as well. There is a familiar 2.4-liter inline-four gasoline unit, which delivers around 150 horsepower.
When it comes to transmission, in most cases you have a choice between manual and automatic transmission.
2020 Mitsubishi L200 Release Date and Price
The 2020 Mitsubishi L200 won’t feature too many changes, so we expect its arrival in usual time. In this case, that would mean late 2019. The price largely depends on the market. For example, European models come standard with a more expensive diesel engine, so the base price goes around 30.000 dollars. In part of the world where the gasoline engine is available, the starting price is lower.
