A new report out of Australia claims the next-generation Mitsubishi Triton will be “substantially” larger than the current model and wear a boxier frame.
After speaking to Tsunehiro Kunimoto, Mitsubishi’s vice-president and general manager of design, GoAuto.com determined the next Triton bakkie was set to be revealed by 2021.
The publication suggested the new version of the bakkie would not only be far larger than the current model, but also gain a front-end inspired by the recently revealed Mi-Tech concept. Squarer wheelarches and a considerably roomier cabin are also on the cards.
Based on its discussion with Kunimoto, GoAuto.com suggested the next Triton would be styled to appeal to Australian buyers (with the executive saying “we developed our truck basically focusing on Australia”) rather than consumers in Thailand, where the vehicle is currently built.
Interestingly, Kunimoto also hinted the new Triton would come before the next-generation Navara, even though the two vehicles are expected to share a platform.
“The Nissan is still at the white or clean sheet paper stage,” he revealed.
