Mitsubishi expected to lead Alliance's pickup development

It looks like Mitsubishi Motors (MMC) will take a lead role in developing the pickup/ute platform used across the Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi Alliance on the next-generation Triton (L200), Navara and Alaskan. We already know this ute trio will share a common architecture in (potentially) different states of tune, wearing different designs and with different cabins, but we now know MMC expects to be the Alliance member chosen to run the project.
