Say Hello to the Updated Mitsubishi Triton Pickup
It is finally here, the thorough update we have been waiting for. With a new and rather aggressive styling, the Japanese automaker claims that the refreshed Mitsubishi Triton offers "more powerful styling", together with new safety features and driver assistance systems.
The updated Triton pickup will launch in Thailand and will then be making its way to 150 other markets. One of these markets include South Africa, however no time has been set in stone...
According to Carmag, the Mitsubishi Triton will roll out with a 2.4-litre turbodiesel, therefore staying unchanged. This engine is good for around 180bhp and 430 N.m torque. If you decide to opt for the automatic version, you will be receiving a six-speed transmission instead of a five-speed.
Together with the turbodiesel, the ladder-type frame will also stay the same as before. The pickup's front end, however, now features the automaker's "Dynamic Shield", also worn by the Mitsubishi Pajero Sport.
The four-wheel-drive versions of the refreshed Triton will have an option called Super-Select 4WD arrangement. Or you can opt for the Easy-Select 4WD system that, according to Mitsubishi, simplifies switching between drive modes for different road surfaces.
The new safety features and driver assistance systems mentioned earlier include forward collision mitigation, blind spot warning, rear cross traffic alert and ultrasonic misacceleration mitigation. Finally, the updated Triton will feature a “multi around monitor”, for a bird’s eye view image of the area around the bakkie.
