From The Experts

  • Pros
  • Cons
Mitsubishi Triton

Putting all the pickup trucks together, the Mitsubishi Triton happens to be the sleekest looking of all of them. The front horizontal grille, with the chrome garnish tapering down towards the fog lamps, give a sharp character to the front fascia of the Triton, thus making it look very different from all other bulky looking pickups.

With a robust chassis under its skin and Mitsubishi’s prowess in off-road vehicle engineering, the Triton has been bestowed with an excellent four-wheel-drive system. The system is also very handy to use, thanks to the rotary-style knob on the centre console.

For a pickup truck, the Mitsubishi Triton is generously equipped with some really nice and premium features, which are generally found in luxury SUVs. Features like full LED headlamps, cruise control, touchscreen infotainment system with Apple Carplay and Android Auto and roof-mounted AC vents do give the Mitsubishi Triton a premium appeal of a midsize SUV.

Toyota Hilux

The previous generations of Toyota Hilux have built up a huge stature for themselves when it comes to unshakable reliability, with tough build quality all over it. Thankfully, that very trait has been passed to this very version of the Toyota Hilux as well, with the current generation model possessing even tougher in feel body panels.

Compared to the previous generations of the Toyota Hilux which were blamed for not being modern and impressive in their looks in and out, the current generation model manages to solve that problem to a huge extent. The Hilux looks quite butch on the outside, and at the same time, the interior cabin layout shared with that of the Fortuner SUV give the Hilux some premium feel on the inside as well.

Mitsubishi Triton

Being a pickup primarily oriented towards off-road driving conditions, the ride quality of Mitsubishi Triton is not as plush as a midsize sedan or SUV. The suspension feels bouncy at times, while there is a slight amount of body roll at higher speeds.

The Mitsubishi Triton is powered by a 2.5-litre diesel engine, which is quite powerful and gets the job done. However, it lacks the refinement of modern diesel engines and is slightly noisy at higher rpms.

With a turning radius of 5.9 meters and long wheelbase, the Mitsubishi Triton feels a bit cumbersome to drive in tight city traffic conditions.

Toyota Hilux

The 2.8-litre diesel engine in the Toyota Hilux feels powerful enough to make the pickup truck pass any grueling task with flying colors. However, when it comes to engine refinement, it definitely needs some massive improvement, as the engine sounds quite noisy even on the idle.

Another weak trait of the Toyota Hilux, as with most of the pickup trucks in the world, is the ride quality on smoother surfaces. While the Hilux’s four-wheel drivetrain makes it feel happy at home during off-roading, the same suspension and drive setup feels bouncy while driving on plush highways.
