This is the 2019 Mitsubishi Strada (w/ 25 Photos, Video)


After a series of teasers, Mitsubishi Motors has finally pulled the wraps off the 2019 Triton (our local market Strada) in Thailand. Coinciding with the pickup truck’s 40th anniversary within the Mitsubishi line-up, the revitalized Strada goes on sale in Thailand next week with other markets to follow soon thereafter.

Embodying the overall design philosophy of “Engineered Beyond Tough,” the all-new Strada dons a more powerful styling, an improved drivetrain, and enhanced active and driver assistive features.




The new Strada is designed under the concept of “Rock Solid”—a key phrase that shows a tough-looking design underpinned by Mitsubishi’s engineering prowess and know-how.

The front face incorporates the new-generation “Dynamic Shield.” It also has a high engine hood line and beefier-looking headlamps incorporated higher up to give it a more imposing presence.



Newly sculpted body curves with contrasting sharp lines, extended wheel flares, and bright accents embody strength and add a touch of modernity. The lighting and bumper elements also become integral—framing the front and rear-ends, adding visual width in the process.

The restyled Strada interior expresses a modern and robust feeling with frame surroundings for the switch panel and air outlets. A high-quality look is created by soft pad materials and stitching on the floor console, armrests, and parking brake.



For 2019, the all-new Strada is fitted either with a Super-Select 4WD or Easy-Select 4WD system for optimal traction and handling characteristics for any surface. Easy-Select 4WD simplifies switching between drive modes for different road surfaces. With the addition of new drive modes, both 4WD systems deliver improved off-road performance.

Both Super-Select and Easy-Select 4WD systems use a new Off-road Mode which has Gravel, Mud/Snow, Sand, and Rock (in 4LLc only) settings. When engaged, Off-road Mode integrally controls engine power, transmission and braking to regulate the amount of wheel slip and thereby maximize all-terrain performance.



A Hill Descent Control electronically controls the speed allowing the driver to negotiate steep or slippery descents more safely and with more confidence.

Aside from its beefed-up 4WD system, the 2019 Strada also migrates to a 6-speed automatic to allow for a smoother, more powerful acceleration and improved refinement. Paired to this is the same 2.4-liter MIVEC Clean Diesel engine with 181 horsepower and 430 Nm of torque. Other mechanical improvements include larger front disc brakes for better stopping power and larger rear dampers for a better ride.



For 2019, the Strada can also be outfitted with several advanced active safety and driver assistance systems. The list includes:
  • Forward Collision Mitigation (FCM), which can detect vehicles and pedestrians ahead;
  • Blind Spot Warning (BSW with LCA), which helps avoid sideswiping another vehicle when changing lanes by detecting vehicles behind or at the rear quarter and alerting the driver with an audible alert and flashing light in their door mirror;
  • Rear Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA) which, in the same way, helps avoid collisions when reversing;
  • Ultrasonic Misacceleration Mitigation System (UMS) which reduces accidents resulting from improper use of the accelerator when moving off or reversing in car parks and other confined spaces.
  • Providing convenient driver assistance are the Multi Around Monitor, which generates a bird’s eye view image of the area around the vehicle, and Parking Sensors.
Expect the 2019 Strada to enter the Philippine market within the first half of 2019.
