Wong also spoke at the event. Wong, in his welcoming address said, “Due to increasing public awareness on wildlife conservation and protection, Matang and Semenggoh wildlife centres are facing growing demands for additional capacities in rescue, rehabilitation and other operational aspects such as transportation.

Concluding his speech, Wong expressed SARAWAK FORESTRY’s hope that more organisations would render support to the corporation’s conservation works in time to come.

Matang Wildlife Centre cares for endangered mammals, birds and reptiles species but it is the Centre’s orangutan rehabilitation programme that has caught the attention of people the world over. SARAWAK FORESTRY’s rehabilitation works were initially concentrated only at Semenggoh Wildlife Centre at Semenggoh Nature Reserve. However, starting 1998, new orangutan inmates have been admitted to Matang Wildlife Centre in view of the increasing orangutan population being rehabilitated at Semenggoh Wildlife Centre.

New Triton Participated in the First Sarawak 4...

Kuching, 8 December 2016- Mitsubishi Motors Malaysia (MMM), the official distributor of Mitsubishi vehicles in Malaysia, participated in the first Sarawak 4×4 Jamboree organized by 4×4 Travel and Adventure Club (SAKTA). The event was a four-day exploration drive from Kuching to Serikin.

This year’s event was in collaboration with Pusat Belia Dewan Suarah Negeri Kuching, Sarawak and was endorsed by the Ministry of Sports and Solitary, Sarawak.

MMM sent in four units of Triton (two being the new Triton with MIVEC Turbo Diesel Engine) into the fray that was driven by members of the media, 4×4 enthusiasts and was led by Malaysia Motorsport Athlete, Leona Chin.  Every participating Triton was outfitted with the compulsory equipment such as winch, protection bars, recovery points, extreme tires, suspension and snorkel.

“MMM was thrilled to participate in the first Sarawak 4×4 Jamboree with 4×4 enthusiasts who gathered to share a common interest for 4×4 vehicles. After Team Mitsubishi Triton successfully completed the recent Borneo Safari event for the second consecutive year, we were very proud and decided to rise up to the challenge once again to participate in another gruesome 4×4 challenge,” said Tomoyuki Shinnishi, Chief Executive Officer of Mitsubishi Motors Malaysia.

The event saw the participation of 51 vehicles with only 20 vehicles (including all four Tritons) managed to overcome the set of challenges that the terrain presented.

“The terrain designed for the Sarawak 4×4 jamboree was a hard core one, meant to challenge both the capabilities of man and machine. The Triton came in with very minor modifications, and still managed to overcome all the obstacles. This proves the capabilities of the new MIVEC Turbo Diesel engine and the Triton’s ability to handle any terrain,” said Mr. Jiram Gima, President of SAKTA.

He added, “During one of the obstacles which were a 6-step, steep hill climb obstacle, all four units of Triton showed outstanding performance by climbing up the hill without the need of any winching.”

The expedition was adventurous and arduous, meant to prove the capabilities of the new Mitsubishi Triton with MIVEC Turbo Diesel engine as a tough and durable vehicle with superb handling and ride comfort.

The overall journey covered a total distance of 187km of mixed on-road and off-road terrain, which proved to be a challenge for vehicles to adjust to the ever-changing road surface.

With Mitsubishi’s long experience in cross country competition and proven success in conquering the toughest terrain, the company is confident of meeting pick up owner’s high level of expectations with continuous improvements.

The newly launched Triton is also the first pick-up truck in its segment to offer an aluminium alloy block diesel engine with MIVEC variable valve timing technology. The new MIVEC engine weights 30kg lighter, which results in improved acceleration and handling.

The previous 2.5-litre cast iron block was already powerful enough to conquer the Borneo Safari last year, so the development of the new MIVEC engine was focused on reducing fuel consumption, which Mitsubishi engineers managed to improve efficiency up to 15 percent.

“The Triton was very stable and comfortable throughout the four-day drive. I was one of the drivers and I noticed that the Triton had very smooth acceleration with sufficient power and torque. I was impressed with how easy it was to drive the Triton considering I am a beginner in the 4×4 adventure!” said Mr. Hii Kheng Juong, Journalist from See Hua Daily.

The convoy flagged-off from Kuching Civic Centre on December 1, where participants travelled for 57km of mix terrains before calling it a night at their first campsite in Mount Moi.

The next day, the journey took participants through a hard core off-road terrain, covering a total distance of 45km from Mount Moi to Padang Pan.

The following day, participants made their way from Padang Pan to Serikin, and preceded their journey back to Kuching covering a total distance of 85km.

After several gruelling 4×4 adventure days, all four Tritons and its drivers came out of the jungle victorious and celebrated the end of their adventure at the Century Hotel for the closing dinner.

The Mitsubishi Triton has once again proven itself through the durability and endurance test with capabilities to conquer any terrain.

More about the New Triton with MIVEC Turbo Diesel Engine

Powered by a new aluminum alloy block 2.4-litre MIVEC Turbo Diesel Engine with VGT Intercooler, the new Triton is now more powerful and more fuel efficient. The new Triton is also the first with diesel engine in the segment to use MIVEC (Mitsubishi Innovative Valve timing Electronic Control system) variable valve timing technology.

Previously only available on Mitsubishi’s petrol engines, MIVEC allows for finer control of the valves.

Thanks to improvements in common rail diesel technology, diesel fuels can now combust at much lower pressure, leading to reduced noise and emissions. However precise control of the valves is necessary to maintain cold-start performance.

With MIVEC finely controlling the valves, improvements in all areas of performance can now be realised. The lower pressure in the combustion chamber also means that it is possible to use lightweight aluminum alloy material for the engine block.

Noise, Vibration and Harshness (NVH) has also been improved making the new Triton a quieter and comfortable drive.

The use of timing chain also means reduced maintenance cost, and longer service lifespan.

The new Triton now comes in six variants, allowing it to meet the needs of a wide range of customers.

The new Triton VGT Adventure X variant is the flagship of the Triton range. It comes standard with rugged looking accessories like a Shield Extender for the front bumper, new Sports Bar with Fullbox, and Dual-Tone 17-inch Alloy Wheels.

The existing Triton VGT AT & VGT MT have also been upgraded. On top of the new engine, Automatic Bi-Xenon HID Headlamps with integrated LED Daytime Running Lights and rear fog lamps are now available as standard. The VGT MT model has also been upgraded with a new 6-speed manual transmission.

All 4×4 models  are equipped with Mitsubishi’s signature Easy Select 4WD system that optimizes torque distribution between the front and rear axles. By simply turning the 4WD Selector, drivers can select between 2WD-Hi and 4WD-Hi while driving at speeds of up to 100km/h, or to 4WD-Lo for the most challenging off-road conditions. The Easy Select 4WD system has been continuously improved for over two decades. It is a robust drivetrain that is able to handle high torque levels.

The new Triton retains its predecessors of best-in-class feature of 5.9 meters turning radius.

As before, all new Triton models are imported as a Completely Built-Up (CBU) vehicle from Mitsubishi Motors’ global production hub in Thailand.

Prices and colour options for all six variants are as listed in the table below:

No Variant OTR Price without insurance GST inclusive (RM) in Sarawak Available Colours
1 Triton VGT Adventure X 4×4 AT 126,525.36 Impulse Blue, Titanium Grey
2 Triton VGT Adventure 4×4 AT 119,718.28 Earth Green, Red Solid, Pearl White, Shadow Black
3 Triton VGT 4×4 AT 110,966.32 Sterling Silver, Pearl White, Shadow Black
4 Triton VGT 4×4 MT 104,139.25
5 Triton 4×4 MT 90,497.22 Sterling Silver, White Solid
6 Triton Quest 4×2 MT 74,938.18

The new Triton comes with 2 Years of Free Maintenance and a 3 years/ 100,000 km factory warranty, whichever comes first.

The company is currently represented by 55 showrooms (out of which 47 are 3S Centres) and 53 service outlets throughout Malaysia.  In East Malaysia, MMM is represented by 12 showrooms (6 in Sarawak and 6 in Sabah).
