The flagship model in the Mitsubishi Triton 2019 range is the GLS Premium, a new nameplate that replaced the existing Exceed variant.
The GLS Premium is a dual cab auto 4x4, and it costs $51,990 on the official list price (but it’s $50,990 drive away at the time of writing). There is no manual version.
Instead, all GLS Premium models are powered by a 2.4-litre turbo-diesel four-cylinder engine producing 133kW of power (at 3500rpm) and 430Nm of torque (at 2500rpm). It uses a six-speed auto transmission, which replaces the existing five-speeder.

The GLS Premium improves on the already good standard equipment list of the GLS, adding a standard fit rear diff lock, a nudge bar, leather-look door trim inserts, push-button start, leather seats, heated front seats, electric driver’s seat adjustment, paddle shifters and a tub-liner (under rail). Plus there’s a surround-view camera system.
That’s on top of the GLS’s 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.
And 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.
