Recently, the Mitsubishi Triton 2018 facelift has been caught as testing in Tonsley, South Australia. Spy shots reveal that the car now comes with a new face under a heavy camouflage.
It is sure that the front fascia of the all-new Triton is now significantly different from that of the current model which was launched in Thailand in 2014. The redesigned fascia receives a thin strip of grille and headlights which come adorned with dense clusters of foglights underneath.

These features plus the X-shaped element are distinctive styles of the Dynamic Shield face from Mitsubishi which is also used in the Mitsubishi Xpander and the newest Eclipse Cross.
The Mitsubishi Triton 2018 facelift is expected to get the front fascia’s design like the big “floating” foglamps in the outgoing Pajero Sport or main beams of foglights in the Xpander or just a more conventional arrangement in the Eclipse Cross.
