The Mitsubishi Triton has a 2.4-litre MIVEC diesel engine which can be coupled to either a six-speed manual or five-speed automatic transmission. The engine, an aluminium block developing 133kW/430Nm, weighs 30kg less than the previous Triton’s 2.5-litre engine. Fuel consumption is rated at 7.6-litres/100km in a combined cycle.
Range-specific features on the new model include an intuitive touchscreen infotainment system with Bluetooth connectivity and USB audio input, as well as the keyless push-button stop/start system. Mitsubishi says the new dashboard has easy-to-clean surfaces.
Standard features also include cruise control, dual-zone auto air-conditioning, a reverse camera, an electrically adjustable driver’s seat, tilt and telescopic steering wheel adjustment and leather upholstery.
A range of safety systems are available on the Triton. On the double-cab versions, Mitsubishi says its engineers have added its proprietary ASTC (active stability and traction control) system, which modulates both braking and engine power to maintain the chosen driving line in slippery conditions. The range comes standard with ABS and EBD, as well as hill start assist (HSA).
