The 2.4L MIVEC intercooled turbo diesel engine cranks out a massive 135kW of power and 437Nm of torque. This creates a hefty 3,100kg braked towing capacity and payload of 960kg.
Many gearbox options
Just like the choice of body types and accessories, Triton’s gearbox options let you put together a vehicle for your exact needs. Triton GLS offers a new 6 speed manual and 5 speed automatic with dial up 2WD/4WD range selector, sports mode and paddle shifts. The sports mode setting enables the automatic to function like a manual, but without a clutch. This makes for near-instant gear changes, great on slippery surfaces.
Thanks to the new engine and body, all-new Triton has outstanding fuel economy of 7.1 to 7.6L per 100km across the range- that’s up to 21% better fuel economy than the previous model, and even that was pretty good.
Fuel economy figures are official results based on test regime ADR81/02.
All new Triton has been designed to be extremely aerodynamic. The improved new body has the lowest drag coefficient in its class. This means better fuel efficiency and less wind noise, so it’s much quieter at high speeds.
RISE body design
Mitsubishi’s Reinforced Impact Safety Evolution body design, or RISE, makes Triton stiff and, therefore, safer in a collision. It means that the cabin area keeps its shape, while energy of the impact is transferred away. A stiff chassis also makes for better driving and handling of large loads.
