According to the latest speculations, the forthcoming 2023 Mitsubishi L200 will be completely redesigned. The L200 truck, on the other hand, should get a mid-cycle refresh. Rumors of a major makeover are unlikely to come true in the foreseeable future. The L200’s replacement is set to go into production in 2022. Prior to that, Mitsubishi will only make the changes required to maintain the pickup truck competitive.
According to what we know, the L200 model will receive minor visual modifications as well as enhanced fuel economy ratings. In addition, the cabin will receive some fascinating improvements. However, there is still a lot of curiosity about the hybrid powerplant. Mitsubishi’s next model will be unveiled sometime next year.
Mitsubishi L200 Redesign Rumors
Leave the exterior redesign to the pros, as the 2023 Mitsubishi L200 will only receive modest cosmetic updates. The 2022MY will appear more modern and inviting. However, in 2023, the truck will undergo some changes. These are modest enhancements. The dimensions and shape of the truck will not change.
The L200 model is 205.3 inches in length and 70.3 inches in height. However, the carmaker also provides two-door and four-door body styles, each with its own distinct appearance. The spy photos show the updated sheet metal as well as the sharper front fascia.
Hybrid Powertrain is Not an Option
The next 2023 Mitsubishi L200 in Europe will be powered by a 2.3-liter turbodiesel engine. The four-cylinder engine produces 145 horsepower and a torque of 295 lb-ft. In Asia, the L200 is available with a bigger 2.4-liter diesel engine that produces 180 horsepower and 320 lb-ft of twisting power. Both versions are available with either a conventional two-wheel-drive system or a four-wheel-drive system as an option. The optional engine has a towing capacity of 7,500 pounds. Mitsubishi will provide a variety of gasoline engines geared at a variety of markets.
Customers, on the other hand, are less likely to buy gasoline-powered models. At the moment, the hybrid version is another rumor. According to reports, the hybrid technology would be the same as that found in the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV. The L200 will very probably incorporate a diesel-hybrid powertrain, so expect something truly one-of-a-kind from Mitsubishi. It will surely be a fantastic addition to the L200 model, but this is far from official right now.
2023 Mitsubishi L200 Release Date, Price
The upcoming 2023 Mitsubishi L200 will cost similarly to the current model. This maintains the beginning price of $30,000. Nissan’s new Navara and Renault’s Alaskan truck will also be on the market. The Ford Ranger will be the first mid-size pickup truck with a hybrid powertrain. Although the L200 PHEV is not yet official, it should cost around $40,000.
The L200 truck is expected to hit dealerships in the second half of 2022, with a hybrid powertrain option. Finally, a new Barbarian trim level will be made available. This is Mitsubishi’s new range-topping trim and it should add more luxury and aggressiveness. As you are probably aware, the L200 is also available in other countries as the Triton model.
