POWERFUL AND STYLISH PICK-UP TRUCK NOW COMES WITH BEST-IN-CLASS WARRANTY AND UNCOMPROMISING SAFETY
Kuala Lumpur, 7 April 2017 – Mitsubishi Motors Malaysia (MMM), the official distributor of Mitsubishi vehicles in Malaysia, officially launched the 2017 Mitsubishi Triton today. The refreshed pick-up truck boasts significant improvements in safety and premium features for an even value-for-money pick-up truck.
The Triton’s status as an all-rounder is sealed with a warranty that’s unparalleled in the segment. It’s the only pick-up* truck boasting a 200,000 km or 5 years warranty for ultimate peace of mind (*Up to 2.4L category).
The enhanced Mitsubishi Triton gets a big boost in safety and now scores the maximum rating of five stars in the ASEAN NCAP crash test (NCAP Five-Star: Applicable for Adventure variants only) with the availability of 7 SRS airbags (Applicable for Adventure variants only), consisting of front, side and curtain airbags, plus a driver’s knee airbag. This full suite of airbags helps to cushion all occupants in the event of a collision.
Also new to the enhanced Triton is the Active Stability & Traction Control (ASTC) system (Applicable for VGT variants only), a safety net that assists in keeping the vehicle in control during over-steer and under-steer situations or slippery and rugged conditions, by maintaining traction.
The Triton, which is renowned for its car-like driving qualities and comfort, also receives new features for 2017 that gives it a more rugged and bolder image. A dark chrome grille now adorns the bold front end, while new design side steps improve entry and egress.
Automatic bi-xenon HID headlamps with integrated LED daytime running lights on VGT variants provide outstanding illumination for the road ahead, as well as a striking signature look. The Adventure X variant takes the rugged theme further with 17-inch dual-tone alloy rims and a front bumper shield extender.
The latest Triton’s cabin has been updated with a new four-spoke multi-function steering wheel with audio, Bluetooth cruise controls, and a new instrument cluster. The VGT Adventure variant also receives an 8-way power adjustable driver’s seat for comfort and convenience in addition to leather seats and a reverse camera to assist in parking.
As before, all new Triton models are imported as a Completely Built-Up (CBU) vehicle from Mitsubishi Motors’ global production hub in Thailand.

The enhanced Triton is powered by the latest 2.4-litre MIVEC turbodiesel engine with Variable Valve Timing technology. Coupled with Variable Geometry Turbo (VGT), it produces a strong 181 PS of power and 430 Nm of torque, and boasts 15% better fuel efficiency compared to the previous 2.5-litre engine.
This is achieved through MIVEC’s finer control of the engine valves for improved performance, while lightweight aluminum alloy blocks keeps weight to a minimum. This modern powerhouse also uses a timing chain for lower maintenance costs and a longer service lifespan. It also boasts minimum levels of noise, vibration and harshness (NVH) for a comfortable drive and further enhancing the Triton’s car-like refinement.
Powertrain options include a 5-speed automatic transmission with manual mode, and a new 6-speed manual transmission for the VGT MT. Mitsubishi’s renowned 4WD system, switchable through the Easy Select knob with shift-on-the-fly, provides various drive modes for any terrain or weather. The Triton is also nimble in the urban jungle with best-in-class turning radius of just 5.9m (5.7m for 2WD).
