Mitsubishi Motors Malaysia kick-started the year with the launch of 2019 Triton. The model was first previewed at the 2018 Kuala Lumpur International Motor Show (KLIMS) followed by its launch in Thailand.


Changes to the exterior styling are notable, though the pick-up carries over most of the interior elements from the previous model. A new variant, named ‘Quest’ has recently been added to the Triton line-up which varies a tad from the 4x2 and 4x4 versions.

Considering the variety of options in each segment, choosing the right model is quite a task. Moreover, every model has several variants in its range that magnifies the confusion.

Accredited to the best-in-class turning radius of 5.9m (for 4WD and 5.7m for the Quest variants) and largest bed in the low rider category, the Mitsubishi Triton is one of the best options in the segment. If you are looking for a fully loaded variant; Adventure X is the most suitable option.


The rest of the variants also benefit from the powerful 2.4-litre engine, save for the Quest 2WD which houses the 2.5-litre engine. While the new Quest has been launched recently, the 4x4 range was updated earlier this year followed by a couple of product enhancements just recently. Overall, Triton is a stylish low rider truck that offers the comfort of an SUV and ruggedness of a truck.
