More about the Enhanced Mitsubishi Triton.

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.

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).
