The Triton we’ve got here is the top-of-the-line GSR, which starts from $63,840. All prices are before on-road costs.
It, along with some of the Triton Double Cab range, launches in February, while other body styles like the cab-chassis will follow later in 2024.
Now, last month, Mitsubishi released full pricing and specifications. And every Triton, with the base GLX four-door Double Cab 4x2 from $43,690 being the only non-4WD version for now.
All grades include a generous level of safety, such as Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB), front and rear cross-traffic alert, blind-spot monitoring and adaptive cruise control, as well as a new front-centre airbag. More about these and other related tech in the safety section below.
And while cloth seats, vinyl floors and steel wheels tell you the GLX is the entry-level version, you do also enjoy niceties like a 9.0-inch multimedia screen with reversing camera and navigation, Android Auto and wireless Apple CarPlay, front and rear USB-A and USB-C ports and 17-inch wheels.
The GLX+ from $50,340 in two-door Club-Cab or from $53,290 for the four-door Double-Cab, adds 'Easy Select' 4WD with a rear diff-lock, along with rear-AEB, side steps, digital radio, a surround-view monitor and alloy wheels.
Going GLS double-cab from $59,090 adds Mitsubishi’s more-sophisticated 'Super Select II' 4WD system with terrain and hill control, comfort rather than load-biased heavy-duty suspension, 18-inch alloys, a tray liner, LED lights, keyless entry/start, dual-zone climate control, a wireless phone charger and more.
For another $1500 leather-shod heated front seats with driver’s side electric adjustment is available, while stepping up to the GSR we’re driving here ushers in blacked-out 18-inch alloys, body-coloured trim, wheel arch mouldings, a 'Styling' bar and roof rails, grade-specific leather finishes, metallic trim accents inside and extra dash-mounted cupholders.
Triton’s really grown up. And while there’s no V6 diesel answer to Ranger, the twin-turbo diesel model’s pricing and specification are competitive with the more-expensive Ranger Bi-Turbo equivalents. That’s a good start.
By the way, what’s with the ‘80s Mitsubishi Cordia and Magna-era variant names like GLX and GSR?
