2nd Generation Fighter
The first model change was implemented. The cabin design had its corners softened and became rounder, and the headlights were changed to the projector type variant 4 lights (the specification for exported model was square type 4 lights). This light was common with the last model of The Great that came out in the next year of 1993 with the big minor change. The side window design seen in recent Mitsubishi Fuso trucks was also started from this model. The doors were exclusive for the Fighter, and these trucks were commonly called Furukon Fighter.
Minor change. Rear wheel park brakes could be installed as an option, and they were standard equipment for GVW11t trucks and higher. All trucks were originally equipped with side door beams and shock absorption steering wheel. Models with more than 200 horsepower were originally equipped with hill start auxiliary equipment “EZGO.” The passenger window was changed from double sliding style to roll up style, and the garnish on the fender was discontinued.
Short cab specification truck FighterNX, which made the bed-less Fighter was released. With this, even with the same total length of the 4t chassis Fighter, cargo bed length could be made longer by 305mm, and the load capacity (not the load weight) could be increased. Since the bed was removed, it was not suitable for long distance route, so it was mostly used for city routes and short distance routes.
The first minor change for the second generation model was implemented. It was commonly called the New Fighter. The exterior design, the front lighting system, and the interior design were modified, and the exterior design became the common image with the Super Great. Also, the engine was changed to OHC 6M60 and 6M61, and the airbag was equipped.
Mechanical AT INOMAT was set up.
Improved, 5-speed AT was added, the turning lamp was made clear, and the standard color variation was increased to 9 colors.
CNG (Compressed Natural Gas automobile) model was added.
Mechanical AT INOMAT-II was set up.
The second minor change was implemented. It was commonly called the Best One Fighter. For trucks higher than GVW11t, wedge style full air brakes were originally equipped, which was the only standard equipment in the class. Mitsubishi Fuso Truck and Bus Corporation improved the feel by renewing the exterior and interior designs, such as placing the headlights in the bumper. The exterior design was the reflection of the image of next Super Great concept model “Fuso CONCEPT.” Also, the Best One system was adopted, and the position of the headlights, the seat upholstery, and the plating of the bumper could be selected freely.
All-wheel air suspension truck was added.
High combustion efficiency engine + DPF + Urea SCR named as “Bluetec technology” was used. On the design side, the front grille was made into a mesh grille. As for the lineup, six-cylinder engine 220 horsepower was added to the GVW8tClass.
Six-cylinder 240 horsepower and six-cylinder 270 horsepower were added to the GVW8tClass.
