Mitsubishi Triton 2016
Carsguide Contributing Journalist Tim Robson had this to say at the time: Dimensionally speaking, the Triton is physically the smallest of the current crop of 4x4 style-side pickups, and it shows in the car's relative agility on the road. Its impressively quiet interior and calm ride also play in its favour as well.You can read the full review here.
This is what Tim Robson liked most about this particular version of the Mitsubishi Triton: Settled, dynamic ride., Impressively quiet cabin., Surprisingly talented off road.

Mitsubishi Triton 2016 Q&As
Check out real-world situations relating to the Mitsubishi Triton here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.
Mitsubishi Triton 2016 or Isuzu D-Max 2015: Which one should I buy?
The D-Max is pretty well regarded in the trade for its ability to go the distance, but modern, common-rail diesel technology has shown that a vehicle with fewer kilometres is usually a better bet than one with more. Although they do an amazing job in terms of power, torque, towing and fuel economy, today’s turbo-diesels are pretty highly strung in some ways and really need their maintenance. And the older they get, the more attention they seem to need in terms of new injectors, filters and pumps.
A D-Max with those kilometres might be ready for a pretty big (and expensive) service, too, so make sure your first trip in it isn’t going to be to a workshop. Ultimately, price, condition and service history should steer your decision as they should in any second-hand vehicle purchase. I’d take a vehicle with 150,000km with a full service history over a 60,000km one with no service records.
Mitsubishi Triton 2016: How do I check the auto transmission fluid?
You can’t, the transmission is sealed and there’s no provision for checking it.
Mitusbishi Triton: Reversing camera overheating
We haven't had any other reports of the same problem. The only thing you can do at this stage is to work with the dealer in trying to a remedy for the problem. Press him to enlist the help of Mitsubishi head office.
Mitsubishi Triton 2016: Transmission shuddering
Without knowing more about the vibration you report it's hard to diagnose a cause, but we note that other Triton owners complain about a vibration on takeoff, which I suspect could be what you experienced. If it is I understand the problem has been referred to Mitsubishi in Japan for a fix, and that it could be a result of the changes made to the rear suspension on that model. We can't say it will get worse with age or when towing, but if you are concerned about it then you perhaps you shouldn't buy the car.
