Mitsubishi Motor has recently disclosed that the Mitsubishi Strada 2019 (also called Triton or L200) will be launched on November 9th, 2018. Additionally, a new teaser photo has been also released to satisfy the curiosity of car lovers.
At first glance, we can see that the Strada 2019 is just a facelift, not a completely new model. The 2019 model still retains the hard points (A-, B-, C-pillar) as the outgoing Strada with sharp crease running from the rear door to the pickup’s bed while the side mirrors and the antenna also look familiar.
The front fascia now gets the Dynamic Shield design concept to be a futuristic X-shaped fascia. The head lights are predicted to be similar with the integrated headlight/DRL design of the Montero Sport or the split headlight/DRL design of the Xpander.
