2019 Mitsubishi Triton set to launch

By Matt Raudonikis, 16 Oct 2018 News

2019 Mitsubishi Triton set to launch news

Date set for the launch of Mitsubishi’s new Triton.

MITSUBISHI will officially pull the wraps off its new Triton pick-up on November 9, and we’ll be in Thailand to drive it fresh off the factory floor.

Not a lot is known about the new model other than what you can see in the teaser images, which indicate the front end will adopt the very Asian-design queues from other current Mitsubishi SUVs, while the main body structure appears to be carried over. No word either on driveline packages, but expect it to remain a diesel-only offering here in Australia.

The new Triton will arrive in Australia in the first quarter of 2019.

The Triton has ridden the double-cab 4x4 ute wave in Australia well and remains a solid number three in the sales race behind the segment-leading Toyota Hilux and Ford Ranger.

It has achieved this despite being a smaller vehicle than others in the category, with a strong value-for-money offering and heavy discounting from the factory and dealers. Don’t expect such discounts to continue once the new model lands, but, unless the new Triton has some unexpected surprises up its sleeve, they will return.

Look for our first drive impression of the new Triton on November 10.
