Following a rumor from June, Mitsubishi has confirmed the next-gen L200 will also be offered as a Fiat.

Mitsubishi and Fiat have signed a non-binding memorandum of understanding concerning a Fiat-badged mid-size pickup truck based on the next-gen Mitsubishi L200. The latter is expected to draw its styling cues from the GR-HEV concept and become more car-like in the same vein as the Nissan Navara, Ford Ranger and Chevrolet Colorado.

Other details are not available at this point but Mitsubishi Australia Marketing Director Antonio Principe hinted a few months ago the L200 will be safer and more expensive compared to the outgoing model.

While the next generation Mitsubishi L200 is expected to be unveiled in the following months, the previous report said Fiat will be getting its own version sometime in 2016 and will be sold in Europe and Latin America.
