The Mitsubishi Triton is a compact pickup truck produced by Mitsubishi Motors. It was originally known as the Mitsubishi Forte in Japan from 1978 to 1986, when the name was discontinued in favour of the Strada. In the United States two captive imports of the Forte were sold by the Chrysler Corporation from 1979, as the Dodge Ram 50 and Plymouth Arrow Truck. Mitsubishi itself imported it as the Mighty Max when it began selling directly in the U.S. from 1982 to 1996, at which point the Plymouth ceased to be available. In North America, after the Mighty Max was no longer offered, the Mitsubishi Raider was offered, sharing a platform with the Dodge Dakota.

For most export markets the name L200 is used,[3][4][5] though it also been known as the Rodeo,[6] Colt Bakkie,[7] Storm, Magnum, L200 Strakar, Blackhawk (badge used in Portugal since 1999, Strakar is a portmanteau of Strada and Dakar) [8] and others.

The fourth generation Triton, built in Mitsubishi's subsidiary in Thailand and launched in 2005, was designed by Akinori Nakanishi and is exported to 140 global markets.[4] Cumulative sales of the first three generations exceeded 2.8 million units around the world.[9] However, Proton has renewed cross-licensing and technology transfer agreements with Mitsubishi as of October 2008, and a second-generation Proton Arena replacement called the Proton Jumbuck 2nd.
