The second step up the Mitsubishi Triton 2019 model ladder is the GLX+ variant.

This model pushes things up a touch in price, with two body-styles on sale: the diesel 4x4 ‘Club Cab’ auto pick-up priced at $40,490 plus on-road costs, or the the dual cab diesel 4x4 available in manual ($39,990) or auto ($42,490).

Over the GLX that sits below it, the GLX+ adds some desirable items - things that will appeal to customers who want that ‘dual-purpose’ role from their work vehicle. 

The GLX+ has a 7.0-inch touchscreen media system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, GPS tracking (but no sat nav) and two USB ports up front. GLX+ models have 16-inch alloy wheels, side steps, a black door sash, chrome interior door handles and climate control air-con.

GLX+ models also get 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.

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).
