One of the best value utes on the market has gone up in price again.

The 2021 Mitsubishi Triton has gone up in price, making it the second price rise for the ute since October 2020.

Mitsubishi has increased prices by $500 across the Triton range – with the exception of the dual-cab GLS and GSR variants, which have risen in price by $750.

The cost of entry into a Triton ute is now $23,490 plus on-road costs for a two-door cab-chassis GLX ute with a 2.4-litre petrol engine and a manual transmission.

The range-topping GSR dual-cab with a 2.4-litre diesel engine and an automatic transmission now costs $53,490 plus on-road costs.

In October 2020, Mitsubishi increased prices of the Thai-built Triton by $450-$1250.

At the time, a spokesperson for Mitsubishi told CarAdvice there were multiple factors which contributed to the price increases, including economic factors such as exchange rates. However, the Australian dollar has strengthened against both the Japanese Yen and the Thai Baht in recent months.

While the Triton has received a host of updates in recent years, the ageing model was praised for its value during the 2020 Ute mega test.
