2016 Mitsubishi L200 to be presented in Geneva image

The new generation of the Mitsubishi L200 pick-up truck will be officially presented to the public at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show in March.

Besides the GC-PHEV and the rumored updated Outlander, Mitsubishi will also pull the wraps off a brand generation of the L200. This will be identical in its European variant as the one offered for Asia, in terms of looks anyway, and it will be offered in two body styles, Club Cab and Double Cab. Rumor has it that this will be gaining new standard and optional features, new safety gizmos and a single turbo diesel 2.4 liter MIVEC unit. In the base version, it will produce 154 HP and in the range topping one 181 HP.

The engine will be connected to a five-speed automatic transmission and it will gain steering wheel mounted paddle shifters. The suspension system will be updated too and the cabin will be more spacious than the one of the current version. The Mitsubishi Outlander has been in production, in the fourth generation, since 2005. This is known as the Triton, the Strada, Warrior, Sportero and Hunter and it is currently being put together in Thailand, South Africa and Brazil. It currently has a 2.5 liter I4 engine under its hood which can be connected to a 5-speed manual, to a 4-speed automatic or a 5-speed automatic transmission. More details on the 2016 L200 are limited for the moment and will be announced at the Swiss automotive event.
