Limited-edition ute hits showrooms

Mitsubishi has unveiled the Blackline, a limited-edition version of its ever-popular Triton GLS dual-cab ute.

The nameplate, which has also been used on Toyota and Nissan specials in the last few years, brings a black grille, black door mirrors, black door handles, dark sports bars and special graphics to the existing Triton GLS package.

There are three suitably monochrome paint colours on offer: Black, Starlight (white) and Titanium. You also get keyless entry, one-touch start and a rear-differential lock, features usually reserved for the range-topping Exceed model.

Power still comes from a 2.4-litre four-cylinder turbo-diesel engine, making 133kW of power and 430Nm of torque. It's put to the road through switchable four-wheel drive which, along with the usual 2H, 4H and 4L modes, offers a road-biased all-wheel drive option.

The Triton Blackline will be priced from $43,490 with a manual or $45,990 with an automatic transmission. All prices exclude on-road costs.
