The Mitsubishi Triton has been upgraded for 2013 with an enhanced standard equipment list and price reductions of up to $3250.
Mitsubishi Australia has taken the axe to the Triton range, halving the number of 4×2 models to five while also simplifying the 4×4 line-up.
The entry-level Mitsubishi Triton GL single cab chassis 4×2 continues as the only variant to feature the 94kW/194Nm 2.4-litre petrol engine. The base model benefits from new front seats with updated cloth upholstery as well as silver accents on the instrument cluster.
The Triton GLX single cab 4×2 and 4×4 models get the same cabin upgrades as the GL, while versions fitted with the four-speed automatic transmission score a new floor console with storage box.
The new manual seats in single and dual cab variants offer extended travel and greater front legroom compared with the old pews.
The Triton GLX dual cab 4×2 has been upgraded from the standard 100kW/314Nm 2.5-litre four-cylinder diesel engine to the ‘Hi Power’ version, which produces 131kW and 400Nm (350Nm with the auto). The updated model also adds high-grade seats, body-coloured exterior panels and side steps.
The same upgrades apply to the Triton GLX dual cab 4×4, which is also available with 16-inch alloy wheels as an option.
The Triton GL-R benefits from 16-inch alloys, sports bar, rear step, and a leather-wrapped steering wheel and gear knob.
The range-topping Triton GLX-R scores auto-folding side mirrors and new seats and upholstery for 2013, along with the 17-inch alloys, nudge bar, fog lamps and side steps that were already standard.
An optional Luxury pack for GLX-R variants includes a differential lock, leather upholstery, power driver’s seat and an eight-speaker audio system.
All Mitsubishi Triton dual cab models have been upgraded to include side and curtain airbags, combining with the already standard front airbags for six in total.
