Mitsubishi Triton Pricing and Specs

2022 price from

The Mitsubishi Triton is available from $23,740 to $55,690 for the 2022 Ute across a range of models.

Variety is key to success in the always booming Australian utility market, and so Mitsubishi's popular Triton workhorse is available as a single cab, double cab or king cab set-up, with a cab chassis or pick-up body style, and with a choice of petrol or diesel engines. All of which has helped contribute to the more than 300,000 sold here since its launch in 1986. Depending on where you plan on driving it, you can choose a four-wheel drive, or save your pennies and opt for a cheaper rear-wheel drive variant, but a wide choice of trims and options ensures the Triton can vary from a purely agricultural offering to a comfortable and car-like vehicle.

The Triton GLX (4X2) starts off at $23,740, while the range-topping, Triton GSR (4X4) is priced at $55,690.

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

Mitsubishi Triton FAQs

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

  • What 4WD should I buy for towing?

    To get a vehicle with meaningful (as opposed to a theoretical) towing ability of 2.5 tonnes, you really need to shop for a relatively late-model dual-cab 4X4 ute. The reason for that is that many vehicles that claim a 2.5-tonne limit in the brochure fail to explain that there’s also a Gross Vehicle Combination Mass in play and, by the time you’ve added passengers, gear and a full tank of fuel to the towing vehicle, there might not be much of that GCM to devote to a towed load.

    Going for a vehicle with 3000kg or even 35000kg towing capacity in the first place is a good way to ensure you do accidentally start driving around in an overloaded vehicle with all the legal and insurance connotations that involves.

    A lot of the current shape dual-cab utes fall within your budget on a second-hand basis, but there are caveats. Make sure you only buy a ute with a full service history. Some of these vehicles were worked hard by their original owners, so be very careful before handing over the cash. Avoid ex-mine fleet vehicles and don’t be afraid to buy a base-model vehicle if it offers better value. Even a single-cab version of these utes will be a lot cheaper than the dual-cab and, if you don’t need the rear seat, are often a more practical solution. Makes and models include the Ford Ranger, Toyota HiLux, Mazda BT50, Mitsubishi Triton and Isuzu D-Max. For real value for money, vehicles like the Ssangyong Musso can tow 3.5 tonnes, are well equipped and can be had for less than $35,000 drive-away, brand-new. That also gets you a seven-year factory warranty. All of these options are available with the automatic transmission you want and, indeed, this is the best option for a tow vehicle.

  • What is the towing capacity of the Mitsubishi Triton?

    According to my specifications, the MK Triton, depending on its specification (engine type, body layout and drive system) has a towing capacity (of a braked trailer) of between 1500kg and 2200kg. At the lower end of that, your caravan when fully loaded would exceed that limit. Older utes like the MK Triton also – generally – have smaller payload and towing ratings than their newer relatives, but it’s also important to take into account the Gross Combination Mass limit which amounts to the total weight of the vehicle and whatever it’s towing. Again, in some cases, the Triton has a low GVM limit of just 4010kg which, even with your caravan at its lightest (unladen) would take your combination very close to that limit. At that point you also need to consider what you carry, including all your gear and even the weight of passengers on board. Fill the fuel tank or the van’s water tank and you could be in legal trouble if anything goes wrong. A visit to a weighbridge (some council tips have them) might be a good idea to see how close to the edge you really are.

  • 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).
