The third tier of the Mitsubishi Triton 2019 range is the GLS.

It is available as a 4x4 double cab pick-up only and has a list price of $44,490 for the manual and $46,990 for the auto, which is a bump of two grand over the previous model (but there are already deals being done…). 

GLS adds Mitsubishi’s Super Select II 4WD system with new drive modes, a centre diff lock, a sports bar, 18-inch alloy wheels, a chrome grille, chrome exterior handles and a chrome sports bar, HID headlights, LED DRLs, fog lights, privacy glass, a leather steering wheel and shift knob, fabric door trim inserts, six speakers for the sound system, power folding door mirrors and carpet flooring.

It gets Mitsubishi’s ADAS (Advanced Driver Assist System) pack, which consists of forward collision mitigation (collision alert and auto emergency braking, or AEB), lane departure warning, auto headlights and auto wipers. That’s in addition to a reversing camera and rear parking sensors, stability control and seven airbags on all models.

There’s more safety stuff: hill descent control, auto high beam headlights, front parking sensors, blind spot monitoring, rear cross traffic alert, and lane change assist are all standard. 

It is powered by a 2.4-litre turbo-diesel four-cylinder engine producing 133kW of power (at 3500rpm) and 430Nm of torque (at 2500rpm). For the dual cab there’s the choice of a six-speed manual transmission or a new six-speed automatic (up from the existing five-speed auto).
