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.
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.
