Revealed back in November 2014 in Thailand as the Triton, the 2015 Mitsubishi L200 is now heading to next month's Geneva Motor Show.

Now in its fifth generation, the L200 is described by Mitsubishi as being an all-new Sport Utility Truck to carry on the legacy of the previous models which have been commercialized in Europe for the past nine years during which 1.3 million units were sold. The refreshed styling also contributes to a lower aerodynamic coefficient of 0.40 Cd which helps boost fuel efficiency.

Power comes from a newly developed 2.4-liter turbodiesel offered in two states of tune: 154 HP (113 kW) & 380 Nm (280 lb-ft) and 181 HP (133 kW) & 430 Nm (317 lb-ft). The engine is coupled to a new six-speed manual gearbox which has allowed the L200 to slash CO2 emissions by 17 percent to 169 g/km.

It has been equipped with a full-time four-wheel drive system with low gear and also benefits from many assistance and safety systems such as Active Stability & Traction Control with Trailer Stability Assist, Hill Start Assist and Lane Departure Warning. In addition, the redesigned HID headlamps have LED daytime running lights and bi-xenon projectors.

Mitsubishi has also worked on the interior cabin which they say it's not only more spacious than before but also quieter while the driving position has been improved as well. The Club Cab version now has rear doors for added practicality and there's also cruise control, dual-zone automatic climate control, rear view camera and steering wheel & column adjustments to further enhance comfort.

Produced in Thailand, the Mitsubishi L200 is scheduled to go on sale in Europe this summer in Club Cab and Double Cab body styles.
