2020 Mitsubishi Triton Absolute | Is there going to be a hardcore version of the Mitsubishi pickup soon? The show car called Triton Absolute, which is currently debuting at the Bangkok International Auto Show, suggests it.
The International Auto Show is currently taking place in Bangkok. The number of premieres relevant for Europe is manageable. And yet there is presented in the capital of Thailand, a car that makes the pickup fans, too be alert: Mitsubishi shows with the Triton Absolute a show car, which could anticipate a hardcore version of Europe known as L200 loading area Japanese. In a sense a counterpart to the Ford F-150 Raptor.
Mitsubishi wants to turn the Bangkok premiere above all the off-road capabilities of the recently refreshed Triton aka L200 to the outside. Therefore, the 2020 Mitsubishi Triton Absolute has protective planking on the surface and red undercarriage panels accentuated on the underbody. The carbon fiber tailgate has been redesigned as well as the lighting system with numerous LED spots above the windshield. There are also handles over the doors, wider fenders and a darker grille.
Also, the chassis have the Japanese optimized for off-road capability. The track is wider than the normal L200 to accommodate rugged off-road wheels with Falcon Wildpeak tires in the recesses provided. The chassis not only raises the body by 50 millimeters, but also allows significantly longer suspension travel than the production car.
2020 Mitsubishi Triton Absolute Specs – Improved mechanical durability
As far as technology is concerned, Mitsubishi only reveals that its mechanical durability has been improved compared to the standard L200. However, it can be assumed that the Mitsubishi Triton Absolute uses a series engine. In Europe, there is the pickup with a 2.4-liter turbo diesel in two power levels (154 and 181 hp).
According to reports, the series chances of the Triton / L200 Absolute are not so bad. After the world premiere in the home country (the car is built in Thailand) Mitsubishi wants to present the show car at other auto shows and other events in order to test audience reactions. If these turn out to be positive, the meaty journeyman could soon come on the market.
