After several months of being launched in Thailand, another Southeast Asian country is also preparing to welcome the all-new Mitsubishi Triton 2024 pickup truck.
Recently, Mitsubishi Motors Philippines (MMPC) has officially announced the specifications and prices of the all-new Triton 2024. The vehicle will be officially launched in this market in January 2024.
The truck is available in 7 versions, with prices ranging from 1,134 – 1,915 million PHP (equivalent to 490 – 828 million VND).
The Mitsubishi Triton 2024 is developed based on a new and more robust frame system compared to the old generation, improving off-road capabilities. The dimensions of the truck are 5,320 x 1,865 x 1,795 mm in length, width, and height respectively, accompanied by a wheelbase of 3,130 mm and a ground clearance of up to 222 mm.
Entering the 6th generation, the Mitsubishi Triton 2024 is still designed based on the distinctive Dynamic Shield language but has been improved to look more modern and fresh.
The front of the truck is impressive with an expanded grille, accompanied by horizontal slats with honeycomb shapes inside. The sides feature LED daytime running lights and LED projector headlights similar to the upgraded Mitsubishi Xpander, along with fog lights placed under the front bumper.
The new Triton also comes pre-equipped with a roof rack and sports bars on the truck bed. The tail section of the Triton 2024 has also been redesigned with 2 opposing L-shaped LED strips. The vehicle features new-patterned wheels, with the largest size being 18 inches, paired with 265/60R18 tires.
In terms of the interior, the cabin of the Triton 2024 is equipped with many modern amenities similar to the new Outlander, such as a 7-inch behind-the-wheel screen, a floating 10-inch center screen, support for Apple CarPlay/Android Auto, a smart key, push-button start, a 6-speaker audio system, 2 12V charging ports, USB Type A/Type C ports for rear seats, and wireless phone charging…
The Mitsubishi Triton 2024 is powered by a brand-new 2.4L turbocharged 4-cylinder diesel engine with two power levels: 184 horsepower/430 Nm and 204 horsepower/470 Nm. This engine is paired with a 6-speed manual or automatic transmission, 2WD or 4WD Super Select Full-time 4WD II.
Designed for off-road capabilities, the Mitsubishi Triton 2024 offers 7 driving modes, including Normal, Eco, Gravel, Snow, Mud, Sand, and Rock. Furthermore, this pickup truck also features an active locking differential with brake control, a rear differential lock, an Active Yaw Control cornering control system, an independent front suspension, and a rear dual-arm suspension with a stabilizer bar.
In terms of safety technology, the Japanese pickup truck is equipped with an advanced driver assistance system (ADAS) with features such as adaptive cruise control (ACC), collision and emergency braking warning (FCM), blind-spot warning (BSW), lane change assist (LCA), and rear cross-traffic alert (RCTA).
The new Triton also comes with Mitsubishi Connect technology, allowing users to locate the vehicle, access driving history, check service deadlines, and even control the air conditioning remotely through a smartphone.
After its debut in the Philippines, this vehicle is expected to be introduced to many other markets worldwide, including Vietnam.
