Mitsubishi Triton Unveils Sleek New Look and Upgraded Safety Features

Mitsubishi Triton new upgraded model set to hit Australia in January 2019.

 

The new frontal design features a narrow upper grille with two thick horizontal bars, a large Mitsubishi three-diamond emblem, a large lower grille opening and a stylised ‘skid plate’ on the lower section of the bumper. The Triton’s more muscular ‘dynamic shield’ will continue with single-cab, extended-cab and double-cab body styles.

On upper-spec models there are new angular LED daytime running lights and LED headlights with indicators and fog lights grouped vertically on the outer edges of the bumper. New, taller tail-lights are a simpler, cleaner design and the new rear bumper is less bulky than the current example. While the side mirrors are also new, the doors and turret are carryover.

Top-spec models now have new 18-inch alloy wheel in place of 17-inch items.

The interior has been upgraded with more soft-touch materials along with padded sides to the centre console and passenger side dashboard, plus monotone colours in place of the two-tone scheme used before. Door trims comprise a thicker-gauge laminate and Mitsubishi has gone to town with the sewing machine: there’s a new stitched centre armrest cover, centre console side covers and double stitching on the parking brake lever and boot.

Air-vents and a USB port have been added to the rear seat area.

The 4N15 2.4-litre turbo-diesel continues, with outputs remaining at 133kW of power at 3500rpm and 430Nm of torque at 2500rpm.

While the Triton’s six-speed manual transmission continues as before, the MQ’s five-speed automatic has been replaced with a new six-speed unit. Mitsubishi’s 4WD systems (part-time Easy Select for lower-spec models and part/full-time Super Select II for premium models) continue with a new standard feature for both systems: driver-selectable 4WD modes. The four-mode system (Gravel, Mud/snow, Sand and, in low-range, Rock), as with other utes with 4WD modes, controls engine output and automatic transmission and braking performance to regulate wheel slip and maximise off-road performance.

Also new in Triton’s off-road armoury is hill descent control.
