MITSUBISHI has unveiled its sixth generation of its Triton ute with its Australian launch set for February 2024.

The new model claims a new, bigger and more rigid body and chassis, improved safety features, bigger tow rating (to 3500kg), bigger payload and a more powerful diesel engine.

The Triton was revealed at its global launch in July and the Thai factory is expected to start production of Australia’s allocation in December before its showroom in February.

Much of the improvement centres on the bigger and more powerful bi-turbo diesel engine that is rated at 150kW/470Nm, up from the current model’s 133kW/430Nm. The engine remains at the same capacity as the current model at 2.4 litres.

A six-speed automatic transmission is available on all 2WD and 4WD versions, with Mitsubishi saying a manual transmission will be available on “selected models”.

The added performance has led to chassis engineering that has lifted the tow rating to 3500kg (from 3100kg) to bring it in line with its rivals. Payload is also up but — like the expected pricing and the fuel consumption — figures have yet to be released.

The body is 15mm longer (now 5320mm) and 50mm wider (1865mm) and sits on a wheelbase that is 130mm longer at 3130mm.

The first variants in Australia will be dual-cab and ‘Club Cab’ (extended single cab) versions in 2WD and 4WD.

Mitsubishi said that the GLX and GLX+ 4WD versions will have the part-time 'Easy Select' 4WD system carried over from the current generation.

The more upmarket GLS and GSR will have ‘Super Select II’ 4WD for the first time. This includes a 4WD high-range mode that can be used on paved roads.

Standard safety features have been lifted with all variants now fitted with autonomous emergency braking (AEB) with pedestrian/cyclist detection and intersection support, rear-facing AEB for car parks, traffic-sign recognition, and a ‘class-first’ driver monitoring system.

Other key active safety systems include active yaw control, adaptive cruise control (automatic models), front and rear cross traffic alerts, blind-spot warning and intervention, and lane-departure warning and prevention are also available. For the first time in Triton, a centre airbag is also included.

Mitsubishi has redesigned the entire vehicle inside and out and claims the exterior work has resulted in a body shape that reduces drag by 8.1 per cent for enhanced aerodynamics.

The most obvious external change is the new face, wider stance and new-design alloy wheels and two new paint colours additions — Blade Silver and the ‘hero’ colour, Yamabuki Orange (GSR only).

Inside it has a higher level of features and comfort and better cabin space utilisation that includes multiple storage spaces including bottle, drink and sunglass holders.

It gets a new 9.0-inch audio display as standard across the range, with a 7.0-inch LCD ‘Meter Cluster’ and integrated satellite-navigation including traffic-sign recognition further supporting the driver.

Wireless Apple CarPlay and Bluetooth connectivity with voice and steering wheel-mounted controls is included.

Mitsubishi Australia will offer the new Triton with its Diamond Advantage with the nation’s only 10/10 (10 year) warranty and 10-year capped price servicing program.
