According to some reports, we could see first updates of newest generation of this truck already in 2018 Mitsubishi L200. This popular pickup truck is present for decades on the market. Original model dates since 70’s. So far, we have seen five generations of it and all of them were very successful and had excellent quality. Current model is still pretty fresh. It was last year, when it came completely redesigned, with plenty of new things. Previous model was in production for a full decade and new one should repeat this. However, first updates are expected soon, and already 2018 L200 could receive some. At this point, we can just speculate about possible novelties.

The 2018 Mitsubishi L200 could receive some novelties. However, these changes won’t be big, since new model came just recently. Overall design of the truck will remain the same. It is a truck that shares many characteristics with company’s popular SUV Challenger/Pajero Sport. Many of the parts are same. When is come to styling, 2018 L200 should keep the same look as current model. It is a very attractive truck, and we could see only some smaller tweaks on some areas. However, we don’t expect anything special. Same thing you should expec with interior. We will see pretty much the same cabin, which same look and same materials used. Some of the possible new things for 2018 Mitsubishi L200 are new infotainment system, new standard features and similar things. Everything more than that sounds too optimistic.
