Mitsubishi Australia has announced the arrival of a new upgrade to its Triton four-wheel drive utility range across the diesel VR, GLX-R and GLS models.
They now boast Mitsubishi's advanced Super Select four-wheel drive system as found in the highly specified passenger four-wheel drive Pajero wagon.
The Super Select four-wheel drive system allows the driver to choose between four driving modes:
- 2H two-wheel drive high range is used for general commuting or highway touring in fine weather and promotes fuel economy.
- 4H full-time four-wheel drive provides added traction in inclement weather, or when the road surface becomes rough.
- 4HLC four-wheel drive high range with locked centre differential delivers power equally to all four wheels.
- 4LLC four-wheel drive low range with locked centre differential is suitable for rough terrain. A rear-diff lock is available as an option.
The new system provides a distinct advantage over its part-time all-wheel drive competitors, offering genuine all-terrain capabilities.
It will be included as standard on all diesel VR, GLX-R and GLS four-wheel drive Mitsubishi Tritons arriving between now and December 2008.
However Mitsubishi's Easy Select part time 4WD system is retained on GLX 4x4 models.
