Turns out Mitsubishi's D:5 minivan concept (the one that looked like a squared off Dodge Tradesman) was a preview of the company's newest minivan for Japan. Mitsu announced today that the new monobox van, like the concept, will be dubbed "Delica D:5" when it hits dealerships early in 2007. D:5 means it's the fifth generation Delica in a line that traces its roots to 1968, with the first Delica light-duty cab-over pickup. The new model, the company says, "fuses a minivan with an SUV," making it somewhat of a crossover vehicle, though it has more in common visually with Japanese vans of yore.
