MITSUBISHI has increased the prices of its Triton light commercial utility range by between $500 and $2450 per variant. The seven-variant range now begins at $24,240 (plus on-road costs) for the petrol-powered GLX Single Cab Chassis and tops out at $55,690 (+ ORCs) for the flagship turbo-diesel-powered GSR Double Cab Pick-Up.
Production of the MY22.5 range begins this month, with first arrivals of the updated Triton model expected in showrooms by the middle of the year. Equipment upgrades includes an around-view monitor and a smartphone-mirroring infotainment system on high-grade GSR variants, with diesel-powered GLX cab-chassis and pick-up versions adopting a larger 7.0-inch MiDisplay infotainment system with digital radio reception.
The Triton GLS Deluxe and GSR remain available with the bright Tan Orange leather trim that was offered on MY22 models, in conjunction with an electrically adjustable driver’s seat, heated front seats, and leather-appointed door card inlays. GSR variants further add a tan-orange control box and knee pad, and a black steering wheel, gearshift knob, and park brake cover (finished with tan-orange stitching).
GSR variants remain available with a roll-top tonneau pack comprising a black roll-top tonneau cover with sports-bar adaptor kit, black sports bar, under-rail tub liner, cargo tie-down kit, front and rear floor mats, tailgate assist and tailgate lock for $6700.
Depending on variant, the Triton is offered in up to 10 paint colours including white, sterling silver, graphite grey, red, impulse blue, black mica, white diamond, graphite grey with contrasting black roof, sunflare orange with contrasting black roof, and white diamond with contrasting black roof – the latter three on GSR variants only.
Powertrain options continue to comprise the base-grade-only 94kW 2.4-litre petrol paired to a five-speed manual transmission (11.4L/100km), and MIVEC 133kW 2.4-litre turbo-diesel matched to a choice of six-speed manual or automatic transmissions. Fuel consumption for diesel models is listed at between 7.8- and 8.6 litres per 100km.
All variants are fitted with front-, side- and curtain airbags, as well as with active safety and drive assistance features, such as a speed limiter, emergency stop signal, emergency brake assist, hill-start assist, stability control, trailer stability assist, traction control, electronic brake-force distribution, and brake override system.
Further grade-specific active safety features include: forward-collision mitigation with pedestrian detection, lane-departure warning, blind-spot warning, lane-change assist, rear cross-traffic alert, misacceleration mitigation system, hill-descent control and automatic high-beam control.
“Triton is an enduring nameplate for the Mitsubishi brand,” said Mitsubishi Motors Australia CEO, Shaun Westcott.
“Its reputation as a highly capable and reliable vehicle, combined with its wide array of accessory options and unmatched 10-year warranty, have ensured its ongoing success.
“Whether looking for an everyday, rugged workhorse through to a fun family car, seeking adventure or just needing to ‘get there’, there is a new Mitsubishi Triton available to suit,” he said.
To date in 2022, Mitsubishi has sold 622 two-wheel drive and 6065 four-wheel drive examples of the Triton nationally.
