The much awaited new model boasts a whole new exterior look with its distinctive front grille design and stylish wrap-around rear combination lamps, which gives a strong 3- dimensional look to the bonnet. Muscular, sleek and dynamic styling like a well-honed athlete, the all-new Triton also provides generous interior space, ample payload capacity and best handling. While the aerodynamic body design at a class-leading 0.42cd (coefficient drag) leads to better fuel-efficiency, acceleration and quieter drive.
Mitsubishi Motors has developed the all new Triton to be the “Ultimate Sport Utility Truck”, combining the comfortable interior of a passenger car with the functionality and reliability of a pickup. The all-new Triton set new standards in the pick-up segment by introducing first-in-class features such as Push Start Button, Keyless Operation, Xenon HID Headlamps with integrated Daytime Running Lights, Tilt and Telescopic Steering and Paddle Shifters for more fun driving experience.
Class leading features such as Leather Seats, Push Start Button, Daylight Running Lamp, Paddle Shift, Auto Headlamps and Wipers and Dual Zone Climate Control.
Best-in-class features include most powerful in its class engine performance with maximum output of 178 horsepower, maximum torque of 400Nm and a turning radius of 5.9 metres. Subsequently, new features in the all-new Triton include 4WD selector, Touch Screen Audio System with Reverse Camera, Auto Headlamps and Wipers, and Dual Zone Climate Control. (Features for each variant may differ.)
Viewed in profile, the all-new Triton has a forward flowing design and a ‘J-line’ between the cabin and rear deck, which is an innovative solution to maximize interior space while providing plenty of cargo room. The 4×4 model now measures 5280mm long (down 15mm), 1815 wide (up 15mm) and 1780mm tall. Ground clearance is rated at 205mm across all 4×4 variants. The interior dimensions offers a total leg space of 1,745 mm and 25 degree seating position which guarantees passenger comfort during long distance travel.
Mitsubishi also managed to place the All New Triton to be in the quietest pick-up in its class with the use of better quality insulation material & coverage. To further increase the passenger’s comfort, the New Triton’s suspension system features double wishbones with coil springs and a stabilizer bar at the front, with above-the-axle leaf springs in the rear to provide unmatched stability to allow smoother and more comfortable ride.
The fully imported Triton comes in five (5) variants:
With the introduction of the 5 variants, Mitsubishi brand now has a wide range that can suit every need and purpose, whether it’s for business or for leisure lifestyle.
The 2.5-litre 16-Valve DOHC DI-D Common Rail Intercooler Variable Geometry Turbo (VGT) engine found in the Triton Adventure, Triton VGT AT and Triton VGT MT.
Mitsubishi has also increased the performance of the 2.5-litre common rail intercooler with Variable Geometry Turbo (VGT) engine up to 400Nm of torque for better acceleration and 178 horsepower for better overtaking. Meanwhile for the more business-oriented customers, the all-new Triton Quest 4×2 is now equipped with a 2.5- litre turbodiesel engine with a high pressure commonrail system. This proven engine has an output of 110 PS and 200 Nm.
The New Triton is also packed with safety features. Firstly, it has Mitsubishi’s RISE (Reinforced Impact Safety Evolution) body construction which uses high tensile steel that effectively absorbs and disperses crash energy from all directions while also significantly reducing overall weight. Impact bars has been added within the side doors for additional protection against side collisions.
Other safety features that are standard across the range include dual SRS airbags, a collapsible steering column and anti-intrusion brake pedal, which is made to fold away during an accident. Anti-lock braking (ABS) with Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD) is also available. EBD reduces the possibility of skidding when the rear end is light and the wheels may lock up on slippery conditions while braking. The Hybrid Limited Slip Differential (LSD) in the VGT engine variants provides excellent traction on slippery or rough surfaces, works hand-in-hand with ABS to enhance driving safety.
The all-new Triton comes with 2 Years of Free Maintenance and a factory warranty of 3 years or the first 100,000 km. The first 2,000 customers to book and register the all-new Triton will receive a free PETRONAS Gift Card worth RM138 for Dynamic Diesel. Terms and conditions apply.
