Mitsubishi Strada 2018 facelift to receive Montero Sport styling cues

Updated Jan 20, 2021 | Same topic: Automotive Industry Updates

Spy photos of the updated Triton in Malaysia hints how the Mitsubishi Strada 2018 facelift will look like.

Mitsubishi seems working hard to create a fresh brand identity in their design with the new Dynamic Shield which has already seen on the latest Montero Sport and the hotly-discussed MPV Xpander. Mitsubishi fans must be celebrating since it looks like the brand is going to apply this design concept to the upcoming Mitsubishi Strada 2018 facelift.

This prediction is given out based on the set of spy shots surfaced last month on Paultan.org, revealing a camouflaged pickup which was believed to be the updated Mitsubishi Triton 2018 (known by another name as Mitsubishi Strada in our country).

Thanks to those spy photos, we can have an idea of how the upcoming Strada will look like. The Dynamic Shield is already known for its thin headlamps integrating into the grille (which still remains in X shape) with the triple diamond badge and a chrome ornament on the front upper half.

The new design also stretch out the foglight array and turn signals to the front fascia’s far sides. The spied photo delivers some signs of the similar design compared to the others in the line-up.

Although the front end received significant updates, the rear bed keeps rather unchanged from the existing model. Besides, the J shape splitting the driver’s seat from the bed still remains there but the bed now looks a little taller because the brand makes it lend towards.

We have seen the dynamic face applied to the GR-HEV concept in 2013. Will there be any minor changes in look when the Mitsubishi Strada 2018 facelift comes out?

At the moment, Strada still keeps it closed about detailed specifications and release dates; however, judging by the latest generation came out quite a long time ago in 2015, we know Strada won’t risk testing their fans’ patience any longer.
