We all thought Mitsubishi outdid themselves with the Triton GLS premium…until we saw the new GSR. Distinguished by its new bold black features, it looks like a magnificent sporty beast on and off the roads.
New Finishes & Safety
New black finishes, such as the black grille, black mirror scalps, and black roof make the GSR look tough. Even the black door handles, black side steps, and black sports bar add to its beasty overall look.
Whilst the bones generally remain unchanged, the Mitsubishi Triton GSR is a very safe vehicle. Variants come with the Mitsubishi Motors Intuitive Technology (MiTEC), which is an integrated system that works in unison to protect and alert drivers. This system delivers unsurpassed safety features to the modern-day driver. This includes 7 airbags, a 360-degree camera, autonomous emergency braking, lane-wonder warning, blind-spot warning, and rear cross-traffic alert.
The GSR 4×4 Double Cabs are the ultimate sports trucks. With 18″ alloy wheels, Bi-LED Daytime Running Lamps, and great towing capabilities, this is one tough ute that nothing can frighten.
When it comes to the tub, there are three cover options available. Starting from a soft tonneau up to a hard tonneau, with a roll-top option as well, there is plenty to choose from.
Internally, the Triton GSR does not disappoint, with dual-zone air-conditioning and roof-mounted fan to circulate air to the back seat, a push-button start, and Apple CarPlay. On top of that, no one will be running out of battery with their devices, as the car sports 4 USB charging ports throughout.
Even though the Triton can feel a little topsy-turvy in tight turns, it has the advantage of the Super Select II; a switchable four-wheel-drive system that can be used on gravel, snow or sand.
How it Drives
The Triton GSR is a capable off-road vehicle that is easy to manoeuvre in tight areas due to its short wheelbase and narrow body. This can be especially handy when driving around town.
Going off-road, the Triton systems are well-calibrated to make the most of the suspension and tyres. You can also tailor the traction control to suit different terrain types through the Super Select II.
Even though the Triton GSR is only a 6 speed auto, the smoothness of the diesel engine paired with the transmission is a combination you can’t go past.
From October 2020, Mitsubishi has upped their warranty period, offering coverage up to ten years/200,000km as long as the vehicle has been serviced inside the dealer network from day one. If customers want to have their car serviced elsewhere, the warranty period is five years/100,000km.
