Where would a reversing camera go on a car like this? It has a folding tray lid and then a large plastic tray. This is still first and foremost a commercial vehicle.
It is mounted just above the license plate
The Triton is a good looking vehicle when it’s clean (like the one in the photos), but I’ve never seen one on the road maintained in that kind of condition.
I know it was done for practical reasons but I think the new longer tray has ruined the proportions of the Triton. It is a shame that Mitsubishi don’t still offer the shorter tray as an option for those who want one of these as a life style vehicle instead of just catering to the tradies who actually need to carry Chep pallets in the back. Otherwise, they are still one of the better looking dual cabs on the market.
I find the Triton’s look starting to show its age and the design will aged very quickly. I think the new Ranger look much better than this.
Looking at the future models from Mitsubishi (new Colt and Outlander) I don’t hold much hope on the next Triton, look wise…
better than mahindra and great wall…and not much else.worst cabin plastics i’ve seen in a long time….
I think that is the first time CarAdvice has bettered the claimed fuel economy of any vehicle!
And probably due to no highway mileage in this case.
Commercial utes have few aerodynamic considerations as standard but a good tonneau cover on the tray does make a big difference at speed.
I think the only reason its ahead of the Bt50 and the holden is because of supply issues out of thailand for those two vehicles? I know thats the case for Bt50 anyway.
Kind of hard to sell what you cant get.
Anyone know when the 3.5L V6 is due to replaced? They discontinued it a few years ago, I thought it would have been replaced by now with the 3.8L MIVEC (from Pajero?).
I don’t think they’re going to replace it. Hilux is pretty much the only Ute you can still get with a V6 and they’ve gone all Diesel in Pajero to except the Exceed.
Coming from a SR5 Hilux to a Triton. The Triton is a more comfy ride.. More economical and without the factory recalls. Value for money and plenty of torque. And its not trying to be a big american rig.
No EGO I put money on it that you are either an employee of Mitsubishi or paid to say this. How dare do you compare a Mitsubish…..t with the Might of TOYOTA
I have a fleet of 4×4 with my business ,and would not get another Toyota hilux to many breakdowns and repairs I have tritons and dmax
Sorry to say, but Mitsubishi not that bad “Shamess”. Triton pull a caravan with no problem…. We have both Triton and Toyota and we use Triton to pull our exclusive caravan. It is a lot faster, more economical, more comfy ride. It is also the only “bakkie” with a rear electric window. What do you need more?
