Mitsubishi has teased images of its new Triton, now showing some of the interior which includes the Super Select full-time 4WD system.
Mitsubishi has released teasers of the new Triton inside and out, and it confirms some details for the next-generation ute.
Mitsubishi remains tight-lipped on details and has only given statements about how the “Beast Mode” design has evolved. This includes “powerful, horizontally-themed styling” with the “piercing gaze of a hawk,” upfront. Beyond the press hype, we’re happy to see that in the latest video the Super Select system appears to live on, giving the Triton an edge over many competitors which don’t offer an all-wheel system that’s safe to use on high-traction surfaces such as bitumen.
This will give the Triton a feature that only the Ford Ranger and Volkswagen Amarok V6 offer, although for the Triton it is likely to only come with four-cylinder engines (diesel turbo and PHEV are the possibilities).
Inside we can also see the interior had a serious makeover. Gone is the dinky infotainment screen, replaced with what appears to be the Outlander’s 9.0-inch unit plonked on a reworking of the dashboard with slick switchgear.
We also know that Mitsubishi has spent considerable effort localising the new model for our Australian conditions.
“Australia is a core market globally for Mitsubishi Motors, and we have been a key stakeholder in the next-generation Triton’s development process,” says a spokesperson for the brand locally.
“The Light Commercial utility segment is more competitive than ever, and we are confident that next-generation Triton will take Mitsubishi’s enduring presence in this market to the next level.”
Mitsubishi has shared some insights into the design of the sixth-generation Triton with these latest teaser images and comments in its media release. Mitsubishi says the updated model boasts a beefed-up body and
To provide a further look into the development process, Mitsubishi has released a behind-the-scenes video and a personal message from the designer on its dedicated website here.
As for local timing on when you can expect the new ute here and its price, Mitsubishi Australia adds: “We look forward to sharing more details of the development process, and of the new Triton’s Australian range, specification, timings and pricing as we move towards delivering this next-generation utility vehicle to Australian customers.”
The wait is otherwise on for the official reveal to take place in Thailand on July 26.
