Mitsubishi Motors sure likes to tease their vehicles. Just like the silhouette of the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross, a return of the Mitsubishi Eclipse sports car as a crossover, the revival of the Mitsubishi truck is getting the same treatment in terms of its debut. Known as the L200 in some countries, and the Triton in others, the Mitsubishi Motors pickup truck got a bit of a refresh, and this time, it’s going global. With the automarket filling up with SUVs, crossovers, and trucks, now is the time for Mitsubishi to make a comeback into the North American market.
So we took the original Mitsubishi tease and shined a little light on it with some photoshop brightness/contrast filters. Nothing fancy, but it gives us an extra peek at what Mitsubishi is trying to hide. The thin headlights and and running daytime lights (RDL) above the bumper are still there, but the well-known honeycomb grille is still too far dark to get a look at it. If anything, the front fascia is looking a lot like a Mitsubishi Outlander. If we didn’t know any better, we’d say the new Triton is the Mitsubishi Outlander with a truck bed. Hey, if Jeep can do it with the Wrangler Scrambler, then why not Mitsubishi?
It’s always a smart move to be diverse and not put all your eggs in one basket. Everyone does it one way or another, and for a business to be successful, this is a smart practice. Mitsubishi knows this, and they’re actually doing a lot more than just manufacturing cars. Some of the companies Mitsubishi is involved with might surprise you.
Technology evolves fast; less than 30 years ago the internet wasn’t even a thing! Now we have smartphones and internet access almost anywhere, even in space (seriously, Google it). Did you know Mitsubishi has their hands in some popular tech pockets?
Nikon, the camera company, is a member of the Mitsubishi group of companies. Surprising right? No one could guess by the name alone, but it’s part of the Mitsubishi business group, including its camera equipment and glass.
Space – the Final Frontier. Mitsubishi Heavy Industries is involved in more than just SUVs. These guys send satellites into space and even work with ISS support to provide technical feedback and aid.
