The Triton facelift model gets updated styling and a new 2.4 L diesel engine with 181 PS and 430 Nm with a 6-speed gearbox and four-wheel drive system
Mitsubishi showcased the facelift model of Triton pick-up truck at ongoing Bangkok International Motor show as it is one of the most popular models in its segment. The global debut of the model took place the Thailand Motor last year.
Even though it’s a mid-life facelift, the company has made so many changes for the pickup as the updated model finally received the shield face as the front get new headlamps along with a new bumper and vertically placed big fog lamp cluster with indicators integrated into. The chrome finish on either side also gives a muscular look for Triton.
The height of the hood has been increased by 100 mm and it has improved the wading depth of pickup by 700 mm, which is an increase of 100 mm over the earlier model. The wheel arches get a square design and the company offers 17-inch and 18-inch alloy wheels while the latter comes with 265/60 section tyres and 245/65 section tyres on the former.
The rear gets new LED tail lamps along with a new bumper and the handlebar gets a chrome finish. The Triton is available in four new colours. The aesthetical changes on the interior of the new model are minor as the pickup gets new soft-touch materials on the dashboard with redesigned centre console AC vents for better ventilation.
The second row AC vents are now placed on the roof and it gets four-speed fan control also. The company has packed the new model with lots of features like updated touch screen infotainment system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, leather seats, USB ports for charging, keyless entry, push-button start, cruise control, multi-information instrument cluster and more.
The safety features include Forward Collision Mitigation, Blind Spot Warning with lane change assist, Rear Cross Traffic Alert, Ultrasonic Misacceleration Mitigation System, Auto headlamps, 7-airbags and more. The pickup is powered by 2.4 L MIVEC engine and it is standard across the range as the company discontinued the old 2.5 L unit.
The company also offers Super Select 4 WD II system with 2 WD, 4 WD (H) and 4 WD (HLc). The Triton gets Hill Descent Control as standard across the range.
