Car reviews - Mitsubishi - Triton - 4x4 GLX dual-cab pick-up
Despite radical restyle, it’s mostly business as usual for the Mitsubishi Triton
27 May 2019
MITSUBISHI really doesn’t hold back when it comes to styling, especially when its Triton ute is concerned. Bold looks have become something of a tradition for the nameplate.
This time, the fifth-generation Triton’s mid-life facelift resembles more of a face transplant with a cyborg from the future. Beneath the newly angular exterior is much of the same old Triton, though, which is no bad thing.
One of the segment’s best-looking cabins has been refreshed with less disappointing materials and there’s a new six-speed automatic transmission to replace the inexplicably old-school five-speed unit that went before.
Crucially for fleets and families alike, there’s now a suite of active safety tech. Except on the 4x4 GLX dual-cab pick-up variant tested here, because it’s an $800 option.
