The Mitsubishi Triton has been spotted testing with camouflage, and a new face under wraps. These images of the upcoming Triton facelift were snapped in Tonsley, South Australia.

It’s very apparent that the front end of this Triton mule differs greatly from the face of the current generation truck, which made its debut in Thailand in November 2014. The revised fascia has a slim strip of headlamps and grille, and below the headlamps are large islands of foglamps pushed to the far corners of the face.

These, along with the X-shaped element are characteristics of Mitsubishi’s current Dynamic Shield face, as seen on the latest Eclipse Cross crossover and the Xpander MPV. It’s an evolution of the much-desired fascia of the current Pajero Sport, with the addition of the large “floating” foglamps. On the Xpander, those “foglamps” are actually the main beams, but the Eclipse Cross gets a more conventional layout – this Triton should be following the latter.

The rest of the truck appears to be similar to today’s Triton – this generation’s signature beltline crease that fades out in the middle of the body is clearly visible, as is the Triton’s trademark J-curve that divides cab and bed.

With this new face, the Triton will finally look more like the GR-HEV Concept that previewed this generation back in 2013. Like what you see?
