Mitsubishi Triton 2021

The 2021 Mitsubishi Triton range of configurations is currently priced from $23,490. Our most recent review of the 2021 Mitsubishi Triton resulted in a score of 8.8 out of 10 for that particular example.

Carsguide Contributing Journalist Mark Oastler had this to say at the time: For under $50K, the Triton GLS represents outstanding value for money in a high quality Japanese 4x4 dual cab ute. If you compare its pricing and standard equipment with mainstream rivals, combined with excellent performance, bulletproof reliability and 10-year warranty, you’ll understand why Triton perpetually holds its ground as one of Australia’s top three 4x4 utes.

The Mitsubishi Triton Ute competes with similar models like the Ford Ranger, Toyota HiLux and Isuzu D-Max in the Under $30k category category.

The 2021 Mitsubishi Triton carries a braked towing capacity of up to 3100 Kg, but check to ensure this applies to the configuration you're considering.

The Mitsubishi Triton is also known as the Mitsubishi Forte, the Strada, the Dodge Ram 50, the Plymouth Arrow Truck and the Mitsubishi Mighty Max in markets outside Australia.

Mitsubishi Triton 2021 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 2021 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.
