Mitsubishi / Triton / utility range

2009 Mitsubishi Triton utility range Car Review


MITSUBISHI has upgraded its popular Triton workhorse with new interior and exterior cosmetics and a higher-output 2.5-litre diesel engine for 4x4 variants.

Addressing the one-tonne utility’s primary customer complaint is the availability of a longer, deeper pick-up bed for dual-cab versions, without impinging on the Triton’s class-leading first and second-row passenger accommodation.

With the exception of the base models there are minimal price increases across the range, but Mitsubishi has simplified the Triton range by discontinuing the 3.5-litre petrol V6 and 3.2-litre diesel engines.

But with more power and torque than the outgoing 3.2 – not to mention better fuel economy – the MY10 upgrade is far from a retrograde step for a commercial vehicle that continues to offer a class-leading four-star safety rating and is also the first to introduce electronic stability control across almost the entire diesel range.

MITSUBISHI'S ML Triton was a revelation when it arrived here three years ago brandishing a space-aged round-backed cab and relatively small tray, but a solid petrol and diesel engine line-up and sharp pricing across a comprehensive model range soon attracted a strong following.

The GL 4x2 2.4 petrol single-cab opened the range for around $20,000, with the line-up also including a GLX 3.5 petrol V6 and 2.5 and 3.2-litre four-cylinder diesel engines available in single-cab/chassis, dual-cab/chassis and dual-cab pick-up body styles.

The 4x2 range offered GL and GLX specification grades, with GLX, VR, GLS and GLX-R available in 4c4 guise.
