Mitsubishi expands Triton range

Freshened: Mitsubishi has facelifted its popular Triton ute range for the 2012 model year as it gears up to fight a slew of new or facelifted rivals.

Two new models join Mitsubishi’s Triton utility line-up for model year 2012

25 Oct 2011

MITSUBISHI has augmented its popular Triton ute – the brand’s second-highest seller after Lancer – with two new models for the 2012 model year, the 4x2 GLX-R Double Cab and the 4x4 GL-R Club Cab.

The 4x2 GLX-R Double Cab is based on the 4x4 model but is $4500 cheaper thanks to the deletion of the off-road hardware.

While there is no change to the price for the entry-level GL Cab Chassis 4x2, there are range increases of up to $1000 for the GLX-R Double Cab 4x4.

The new 4x4 GL-R Club Cab is based on the GLX, which has a revised front bumper and grille, shared with the GLX-R.

Triton 4x2 models have been criticised for their uncomfortable bench seat arrangement so for MY12 Mitsubishi has fitted bucket seats to the entry-level GL Single Cab and GLX Single Cab models.

These models also gain a centre floor console with lid and the driver’s seat is height-adjustable. In addition, ABS with EBD is now standard on the GL while the GLX now comes with electronic stability and traction control.

The 4x4 Triton GLX Single Cab also gets standard ESC, bucket front seats, a floor console with lid and driver’s seat height adjustment.

Towing capacity for the 4x4 GLX Club Cab has been increased from 2.5 tonnes to 3.0 tonnes, ESC is now standard, and wider 16-inch steel wheels and tyres covered by front and rear wheelarch flares are also new.

Mechanical specifications are unchanged, so two-wheel drive Triton GL is fitted with a 2.4-litre petrol engine developing 94kW and 194Nm, while the GLX, GL-R and GLX-R come with a 2.5-litre diesel that develops 100kW and 314Nm.

Triton 4x4 models are powered by a 2.5-litre turbo-diesel that develops 131kW and 400Nm (auto: 350Nm).
