Triton Pros & Cons

Things We Like in 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.

Things We Dont Like in 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.

Recent Updates of Triton

Since its launch in 2006 in Malaysia, the Mitsubishi Triton has become the go-to vehicle for people who are looking for a perfect blend of power, performance, and comfort. The latest generation of Triton, which was launched in January 2019, came with Mitsubishi’s Dynamic Shield front fascia which offered it a stylish and modern look. Along with exterior updates, the Triton also features a new six-speed automatic gearbox and Super Select 4WD II system with off-road mode. Under the hood, the Triton is powered by a 2.4-litre MIVEC turbodiesel engine which produces 180 PS of power and 430 Nm of torque. In terms of safety, this pickup gets a 5-star ASEAN NCAP rating which is complemented by features like airbags, anti-lock braking system with electronic brakeforce distribution and brake assist, traction control, active stability control, trailer stability assist and reverse camera. The Mitsubishi Triton is available in five variants in the markets with price starting from RM 100,200.

Overview

The Mitsubishi Triton, despite being a pickup van, has had a good piece in the market share. Over the years, the Triton has only grown to be the perfect pickup. The first time it was launched in the market, we could see how well-accepted it was by the buyers. But then again, the updates went on to better the position further with the newest generation model been nothing short of practicality and urbanism.

While talking about such pickups, we can well say that gone are the days when they were just commercial vehicles. The present breed of such cars has the urban bit attached to it with a lot of utility in place. And the Triton is what makes for the perfect example. In fact, it is only the last couple of updates that made it the way it is now, thanks to the slew of visual upgrades and safety features.

Mitsubishi Motors Malaysia has been doing a great job in getting the Triton to succeed in the market and a couple of those amazing promotions are the GST rebate and Merdeka bonus.

Interior & Features

Hop inside the Mitsubishi Triton and you will find it similar to any passenger car. It has the friendly and feature-rich approach intact and would please any tech-savvy owner. The four-spoke steering wheel has control buttons for the driver’s convenience.

The seats are spacious on both the rows and the upholstery is comfortable. Speaking of the seat-wrapping, the lower variants has fabric upholstery while the top trims get leather with orange stitches. The legroom and headroom are huge, which makes it perfect for longer trips.

Up at the dashboard, there is a touchscreen infotainment system that has Apple CarPlay connectivity along with Bluetooth, USB and voice command. However, the VGT Adventure X and Premium do not have the CarPlay. The lower models just have the 2-DIN system.

The audio system is routed to either six or four speakers, depending on the trim. However, the base variant just has a two-speaker system on offer. Barring the base variant, all the other trims feature automatic climate control (the top end even has dual-zone control).

Exterior

The new Mitsubishi Triton is undoubtedly one of the best-looking cars in the segment. It is both stylish and urban, especially after the recent facelift. The pre-facelift model did receive a lot of competition from its peers like the Toyota Hilux, Isuzu D-Max, and Chevrolet Colorado.

However, the makeover was welcomed with wide arms. The current model is rich in features, especially the top-end VGT Athlete. There are auto Bi-Xenon HID headlamps with manual levelling and LED DRLs. Rear fog lamps are given as standard in all the variants while the top end models have the front fog lamps.

The van rides on alloy wheels as a standard and there are no rim options offered. However, the base variant has the 15-inch wheels while the VGT MT has 16-inch units. All the other higher variants have 245-section 17-inch wheels. The rear deck is quite big and the dimensions read as 1,520 mm length and 1,470 mm width.

Ride & Handling

The presence of a 4WD selector and cruise control work wonders for the Mitsubishi Triton. The Independent-Wishbone and Coil Springs front suspension, and Rigid and Elliptic Leaf Springs rear are tuned in the aptest way possible to support both private as well as commercial driving.

The engine impresses to a great extent, especially the 2.4-litre variant. There is a very strong mid-range pull if you get the throttle up higher. However, rigorous acceleration feels a little laggy while you are still on the low rev range. The moment you cross the 1,000 rpm mark, the feedback is effortless.

When at a standstill, rev the engine hard on neutral and you will find the exhaust sound to be pleasing. Also, it's very different than conventional pickup vans.

Engine & Fuel Consumption

The Mitsubishi Triton is offered in two states of tunings. The 2.5-litre intercooler turbocharged engine comes in two setups for the base trims. The lower one can make 110 PS of power and 200 Nm of torque while the higher tuned mill delivers 136 PS and 324 Nm.

The other 2.4-litre turbocharged diesel motor is more powerful and makes a humongous 181 PS at 3,500 rpm along with a peak torque of 430 Nm, which comes at 2,500 rpm. The lower trims have either a 5-speed or a 6-speed manual gearbox. However, the top trims get a 5-speed automatic unit with manual mode (paddle shifter).

Braking & Safety

The Mitsubishi Triton has ABS and Electronic brakeforce distribution given as standard braking features in all the trims. Apart from that, all the VGT variants have Brake Assist, Traction Control, Active Stability Control, Trailer Stability Assist, and reverse parking sensors. The reverse camera is also given but not with guidelines in the VGT GL.

Moreover, there is one more thing that takes the safety concerns to a higher level. Upon testing, it received a 5-star rating at the ASEAN NCAP crash test. This could be achieved with the help of an extra-rigid frame, side door impact beams, head impact protection structure, etc. The lower variants have dual front SRS airbags while the higher models have seven airbags on offer, thus making the cabin safer.

Verdict

The Mitsubishi Triton, unlike most pickup vans, hasn’t had a lot of success right from the beginning. It had to battle it out against the segment greats, which was not very fruitful until the latest generation upgrade came into the picture.

That, combined with certain other attractive offers and benefits from the company has made it a striking option to go for, in the mid-range pickup van segment in Malaysia.

    Loaded with tech!

    The Triton is an impressive piece of hardware! You would not really associate trucks to be tech-focused but the Triton certainly seems to be. You get more than some cars/SUVs! Leaving the tech aside, the Triton is a great truck. You can work hard and play hard thanks to its versatile nature. The 2.4-litre diesel motor has good grunt in Read More

    A force to recon with

    The pickup world is dominated by Ford and Toyota and it's understandable why. When I was in the market for a pickup, I decided to check out the Triton and could not find it inferior in any way to the competition. I love the way it looks both inside and out, there is a certain feel-good factor about the cabin Read More
