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).

This full suite of airbags helps to cushion all occupants in the event of a collision.

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.

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.
