Mitsubishi Confirms 2024 Strada Will Use New Platform, Engine


Ahead of its global reveal on July 26, Mitsubishi Motors has confirmed that its all-new Strada (Triton) will use a brand-new platform and powertrain.

Engineered to achieve safe, secure, and comfortable driving for any weather or road conditions, the all-new Strada/Triton will ride on a newly-developed ladder frame with double wishbone at the front and leaf springs at the back.


This will be paired to a newly-developed clean diesel engine that will have “higher output” compared to the current Triton/Strada. Furthermore, it boasts of improved efficiency thanks to reduced friction loss.

“Having the full model change of all-new Triton for the first time in about nine years, we have newly developed the engine, suspension, interior and exterior, which has resulted in significant improvements in driving performance, comfort and safety,” said Yoshiki Masuda, chief product specialist, Mitsubishi Motors. “In addition, we have interviewed various customers about their usages and needs, and have repeatedly conducted development tests to meet the demands of a vehicle that works in a harsh environment. We are confident that this model will satisfy all customers around the world, from leisure use to commercial use. Please look forward to the unveiling of the all-new Triton.”

  2. Strada is a 3rd world product. Nothing to write home about…

    1. Strada is also known as Triton and L200, that's the reason why not only Mitsubishi Motors have already left the British/Irish markets back in 2021, but also the upcoming Triton/Strada/L200 could not be marketed in Europe since Nissan already deleted the Navara in the latter also in 2021 — reasons was because Europeans find pickups (aka utes in Australia/New Zealand and bakkies in South Africa) unsuited to their image and also Europeans see pickups socially "backward", "politically incorrect", "sexist" and even "homophobic" too since pickups are for men who are instead consider themselves straight. (Which is given to a myriad of countries in Europe like the Nordic countries are already favouring cars with only electric/hybrid power and this is also the same reason why "BMW" and "Volvo" refuse to make pickups unlike the Japanese and Aussies of Ford.)

      Also, I even believe that Renault's influence in Nissan (and Mitsubishi) even after Carlos Ghosn's arrest in 2018 have made Nissan's progress worse than how Mazda, for example, is currently doing with Toyota. Since Nissan and Mazda have had in common that two of them (Nissan and Mazda) were both part of Western control with Mazda under Ford and Nissan under Renault (Mitsubishi was under Chrysler and Isuzu, Suzuki and Subaru were under General Motors/GM), so if the upcoming Triton might be used as a base for the next-generation Nissan Navara — different from the U.S. and Canadian markets-only Nissan Frontier (since it has a V6) — then if that Navara were already released probably that Navara too may not even sell well as the Triton/Strada/L200... (Just look at the current Mazda BT-50 that it only sells slowly compared to its base model Isuzu D-Max...) ๐Ÿ‡น๐Ÿ‡ญ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿค๐Ÿ™‚๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿป
