All-new Mitsubishi Triton breaks cover [w/video]
Mitsubishi has finally unveiled the all-new Triton.
The new Triton’s design will be familiar to those who know and love it, but there’s no mistaking the fact that it’s an all-new vehicle.
The front is dominated by an aggressive, prominent grille, while the body retains those infamous curves and oddly shaped load bin.
The interior is less outlandish, but it seems to be well thought out and will likely be equipped with everything the luxury bakkie owner has come to expect, including a seven-inch touch-screen infotainment system and climate control. Mitsubishi has also stated that the seats will be longer and wider, which means added comfort for the driver and passengers.
The Triton is currently only on sale in Thailand, where it’s available with one petrol and three turbocharged diesel powertrains.
The 2,4-litre four-cylinder petrol delivers 94kW and 194Nm of torque. The 2,5-litre four-cylinder diesel is available in either 94kW/240Nm or 131kW/400Nm specification.
A new high output 2,4-litre four-cylinder turbodiesel also joins the line-up and serves as the most powerful engine available on the new Triton. It delivers 133kW and a meaty 430Nm of torque.
These engines are mated to either a five- or six-speed manual transmission, while a five-speed automatic transmission will be an option.
The all-new Triton will reach SA before mid 2015.
