ITS OFFICIAL: New Mitsubishi Triton lands in February


Mitsubishi Motors South Africa has confirmed that its long awaited new Triton would start arriving in dealerships by February next year.

Delayed numerous times due to pricing concerns, the Triton, which Mitsubishi refers to as a sport utility (SU), will debut only with a 2.4-litre DI-D turbodiesel engine developing 133 kW and 430 N.m of torque, two kilowatts and 30 N.m more than the outgoing 2.5-litre mill, with transmission being either a six-speed manual or five-speed automatic.

Initially available in double cab configuration only, the Triton will be offered with two-wheel drive or Mitsubishi's famed SuperSelect II 4WD system, with the latter setup featuring a rear diff-lock, 40 / 60 torque split, and four mode driving selector depending on the terrain.

Final pricing and spec will be announced closer to launch.
