Triton Huntaway bears its teeth

Top of the range 4WD VRX custom build to get crowds flocking at Fieldays

Mitsubishi Motors NZ has gone to town to create a rugged rural beast equipped to run wild across the roughest back country ranges.

“Starting from the top and building up, we’ve taken the leader of our Triton pack – the 4WD VRX – and essentially untamed the beast,” said Daniel Cook, general manager of vehicle sales and marketing. “If our regular Triton is tough, this is the Terminator.”

“You don’t want to miss this ‘beast in show’, so come and see us at Fieldays site J30!”

The special edition ute squares up with a robust TJM front protection bar, custom wide fenders, roof and front-mounted Narva light bars, plus a Rhino Rack Pioneer roof tray and personalised decal.

Poised for action on DTM Fuel Ripper 20” wheels shod with 35” Atturo Trail Blade M/T tyres, the Huntaway stands over 100mm above a regular Triton.

That height is achieved through front 1” spacers between the strut and chassis, 2” rear lift blocks and a 2.5” body lift.

Any rocks thrown up underneath will meet with resolute resistance in the form of a custom Huntaway undertray, while any bigger boulders can be swiftly dodged with assistance from Evolution 8 Brembo brakes up front and rear disk brakes borrowed from Pajero Sport.

Wading through water is a walk in the park with the addition of a snorkel; and for good measure, the build team has thrown on side steps and a jack rear bar, plus a Fully Equipped trade top.

Inside hasn’t been overlooked either – creature comforts include leather sport interior with Huntaway stitching.

Mitsubishi Motors Names New Compact SUV: Eclipse Cross

Tokyo, February 14, 2017 – Mitsubishi Motors Corporation (MMC) today announced it has chosen the name Eclipse Cross for its new compact SUV model to be debuted at the 87th Geneva International Motor Show* in Geneva, Switzerland on 7-19 March, 2017.

Eclipse derives its name from MMC’s popular specialty coupe model sold in the US from 1989, while Cross is short for crossover.

Eclipse is also a word used to describe an astronomical event. Marrying stylish coupe lines with the freedom of movement of an SUV, the beautiful, dynamic form of Eclipse Cross serves to bring about the same sense of excitement and inspiration as the diamond ring seen immediately before and after a total solar eclipse.

The high-saturation red body color newly developed for the model is also reflected in the name to evoke the brilliance of the prominence seen during the total solar eclipse.

* Le 87e Salon international de l’automobile Genève 2017. With press days on 7-8 March, the show is open to the public from 9-19 March. MMC will hold its press conference from 11:15am on 7 March, local time, at the MMC booth.
