Mitsubishi Triton

What's on this page

Mitsubishi Triton Australia

The Triton is Mitsubishi’s light commercial ute answer to the Toyota HiLux, doing battle for sales since 1986.

Available in similar configurations and spec levels as the HiLux – single and dual cab, two- and four-wheel drive, and the choice of basic workhorse and upmarket, dual-purpose family truck, the entire Triton range is served by a single diesel engine. Mitsubishi also uses the Triton as a base for its Pajero Sport SUV. The Triton faces stronger competition than ever, thanks to the proliferation of utes from Toyota, Ford, Nissan, Mazda, Holden and Isuzu.

Current prices range from $23,490 to $53,490 for the Triton GLX (4X2) and Triton GSR (4X4).

This vehicle is also known as Mitsubishi Forte, Strada, Dodge Ram 50, Plymouth Arrow Truck, Mitsubishi Mighty Max.

Mitsubishi Triton Q&As

Check out real-world situations relating to the Mitsubishi Triton here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.

  • Why does the speedo in my 2004 Mitsubishi Triton bounce up and down and make a weird noise?

    The cable that drives the speedometer is a likely candidate for this in some cars, Aaron, but mainly older ones than your Triton. The cable will eventually run out of lubricant, at which point it can bind up and won’t turn smoothly (the cause of the hyperactive needle) while also making a dry squawking noise (the budgies). But, from memory, your car has an electronically-driven speedo, so the cause is more likely that the speedometer itself is worn out and causing internal friction (for the same set of symptoms).

  • What can I do about the red paint on my 2016 Mitsubishi Triton fading?

    I spoke to Mitsubishi Australia who told me that paint fade is not a common complaint among their customers. There is the possibility that your car could be covered by warranty, but that will all depend on the circumstances of that individual vehicle. That’s not as simple as it having been exposed to high temperatures or UV radiation on a regular basis, either; the car’s entire history will be taken into account including whether it has ever been treated with an aftermarket paint treatment or has had body repairs at any stage.

    Mitsubishi’s advice, then, is to take the vehicle to your nearest dealership and have the car examined to assess what the situation is. If that doesn’t satisfy you, you can also contact Mitsubishi Australia’s customer service division to discuss the issue.

    For the record, shades of red are historically the worst offenders when it comes to fading and paint degradation. Paint technology has come a long way, but it remains that red pigments do not appreciate Australian levels of heat and UV radiation. In some cases, the original colour of the vehicle can be restored without resorting to repainting and this process can take many forms.

  • Are there known problems with 2015 Mitsubishi Triton's intercooler pipes/hoses?

    The MQ Triton doesn’t seem any better or worse than its rivals in this department. But, like other makes and models, there’s a healthy aftermarket supply of replacement intercoolers and the pipework that feeds them, so it’s definitely not an unknown problem.

    But your experience is exceptional. Were all five vehicles bought brand-new at the same time? If so, they’re all likely to be from the same production run which could explain a faulty batch of hoses.

  • What is causing my Mitsubishi Triton GLX auto to shudder?

    When you say the suspension has been upgraded, did that, by any chance, involve raising the ride height? Problems centring around shuddering and vibrations, vague steering and the vehicle generally having a mind of its own are very common among owners who have paid good money to have the suspension hiked by anything from two to six inches.

    Aside from the legal and insurance implications of this, raising these vehicles can throw the wheel-alignment settings (particularly the caster angle) out of whack and lead to the problems you’re experiencing. There are fixes including eccentric suspension bushes to return the angles back to normal, but it’s a specialist job.

    Beyond that, a vibration at a particular speed can often be traced back to wheel balancing. The wheel and tyre combination on these vehicles is quite heavy, so making sure all the balance-weights are where they should be is critical.

Mitsubishi Triton Speed

The Mitsubishi Triton GLS can accelerate from 0-100km/h in approximately 10 seconds.

Mitsubishi Triton Seats

The Triton’s relatively narrow width is most noticeable in the cabin, which is cosy but not uncomfortable for front seat occupants as even tall adults can find comfortable seating positions. The rear seat, though, is particularly squeezy for three adults, so for any trips longer than local commutes we’d recommended a maximum of two adults in the rear stalls.
