New Mitsubishi Triton gets new tech, a sharp interior and aggressive styling
Mitsubishi has pulled the wraps off the new Triton. The new pick up range will launch in Australia in January 2019, and boasts a heap of new te
ch and styling, some of which is derived from the Pajero Sport SUV.
Key new technology includes two different enhanced four-wheel drive systems: Super-Select and Easy-Select. Both will have a new off-road mode which consists of GRAVEL, MUD/SNOW, SAND and ROCK (in 4LLc only) settings. When the driver selects off-road mode, the system will regulate the Triton’s engine and transmission to reduce wheel sleep and optimize performance off the beaten track. Hill descent control is also fitted.
Additionally, the new Triton will be equipped with Autonomous Emergency Braking, Blind Spot Monitoring, Rear Cross Traffic Alert and something called Ultrasonic Misacceleration Mitigation System (UMS). UMS is clever in that it attempts to reduce the over enthusiastic use of the throttle and hopefully prevents little mishaps when moving off or in car parks.
A multi angle camera system and parking sensors complete the package.
Enhanced on road refinement, comfort and durability have also been promised.
In terms of drivability there’ll be bigger brakes and a six-speed automatic replaces the outgoing the five-speed unit.
Further details will be revealed closer to the new Triton’s launch.
