Off-road competitions are Mitsubishi Motors’ great laboratory for vehicle development. Proof of this are the three consecutive titles won by the L200 Triton in the Sertões Rally, the most important off-road race in Brazil. In addition, the L200 Triton shines in the Mitsubishi Cup, Brazil’s most traditional rally championship, which turns 17. This is one of the tests that require a lot of vehicles and result in learning and development as they go through extreme situations. The fuel tank has a capacity of 90 liters, giving much more autonomy to travel great distances. Externally, the L200 Triton is designed for a better aerodynamic performance and the coefficient of aerodynamic penetration is only 0.47, which results in more performance, fuel economy and less noise inside the vehicle.

Technology and efficiency
In all 4×4 versions of the L200 Triton line, the traction system is the Easy Select 4WD, which allows the option of three distinct modes of action: 4×2 – only rear traction, recommended for urban / road use and translates into fuel economy and lower noise level, 4×4 – all-wheel drive, ideal for low-grip tracks such as dirt, sand, gravel, mud etc., and the 4×4 with reduced – indicated for use in situations where full force is required, such as the transposition of obstacles, a task facilitated by the rear limited slip differential LSD Hybrid (with the exception of GLX 3.2 MT and GL 3.2 MT), which automatically transfers the traction to the wheel that requires force. The front suspension is independent, with double triangular arms, hydraulic dampers, coil springs and stabilizer bar. Its dimensions are ideal for all types of use and the off-road capability is reflected in the inlet (39 °) and outlet (29 °) angles, as well as the 220 mm ground clearance. The bucket is an indispensable item for those who use the car at work or play. Added to the internal space, it brings a lot of functionality, since it is suitable for carrying different types of materials and at the same time, the family. The entire L200 Triton range is equipped with an anti-noise package, which includes dual door seals and internal tarpaulins, ensuring a low noise level in the cab. The side stirrups facilitate access to the vehicle and reinforce the brand’s DNA.
Mitsubishi Motors’ major concern with safety is present in the L200 Triton. The chassis designed to increase the resistance to bending and torsion, makes this pick-up a very safe vehicle for any situation. The cabin features the RISE system of programmed deformation, in case of collision, steering column, pedal and the collapsible internal rear view mirror, side protection bars, in addition to double airbag. The brake system also receives news and now has 4-ABS technology with EBD and BAS, which electronically distributes the braking force on each wheel, keeping the vehicle on a correct and safe trajectory even in situations where the brakes are used. The strength and robustness are standard items of the L200 Triton: it is agile and practical in the most severe conditions and transforms the walks with the family in comfort, space and practicality.
