Mitsubishi Triton revised for 2020

By Dean Mellor, 01 Oct 2019 Road Tests

It looks the same as the current model, but Mitsubishi has updated its Triton range for 2020 with a focus on improved off-road capability, comfort and convenience.

Mitsubishi Triton revised for 2020

MITSUBISHI has upgraded its Triton ute for 2020 to ensure it at least retains third position in the 4x4 ute sales race behind the ever-popular Ford Ranger and Toyota Hilux.

While it looks the same as the current model – which was only released at the beginning of this year – Mitsubishi has upped the spec-level on various MY20 Triton models, headlined by the inclusion of a standard rear diff lock on the GLX+, GLS and GLS Premium models. This feature was previously reserved for the top-spec GLS Premium.

Despite the addition of the rear diff lock, the Triton GLX+ retains Mitsubishi’s part-time Easy-Select 4WD system, whereas the GLS and GLS Premium models score the more advanced selectable full-time Super-Select 4WD-II system.

Tritons equipped with Super-Select 4WD-II also now feature an Off-Road mode selector with ‘Gravel’, ‘Mud/Snow’, ‘Sand’ and ‘Rock’ settings. This system is available on both six-speed manual and six-speed auto transmissions, and it tailors the engine power delivery, automatic transmission response, traction control response and stability control reaction to suit specific driving environments.

Other upgrades include the fitment 245/70R16 all-terrain tyres to GLX and GLX+ Club Cab and Double Cab models, the inclusion of a roof-mounted rear air circulator on Triton GLX+ for better airflow inside the cabin, and the addition of keyless entry and push-button start to the GLS model grade. The GLS and GLS Premium models continue with 265/60R18 highway tyres.

Despite the extra features for the 2020 model year, Mitsubishi has managed to retain the Triton’s all-important value-for-money equation, with GLX+ models up by only $1000, GLS manual up by $500, GLS auto up by $650 and GLS Premium up by $500.

Notably, three-year capped-price servicing costs have been reduced across the Triton 2.4L turbo-diesel range, down from a total of $1530 to $897 (for three annual/15,000km services). The current seven-year/150,000km warranty will be retained at least until December 31, 2019, but there’s no word yet on whether this will be extended indefinitely.
