Mitsubishi Motors Malaysia is introducing an updated 2017 Triton offering improved equipment levels, notably with regards to safety, but with prices increased for four out six variants.
The six-variant line-up from before is maintained. Except for the entry-level Triton Quest 4x2 and VGT manual variants, all models are subject to price hikes ranging from RM2,720 to RM3,700.
OTR prices of the 2017 Triton (excluding insurance) are listed below:
- Quest 4x2 M/T – RM77,390 (no change)

Key updates implemented in the 2017 Triton are focused on safety, with all VGT variants getting Brake Assist (BA), electronic stability control, traction control, Hill-Start Assist (HSA), and Trailer Sway Control (TSC).
These items complement existing safety features consisting of ABS, EBD, Reverse Sensors, ISOFIX and dual frontal airbags. The range-topping Adventure and Adventure X models additionally get side, curtain, and driver knee airbags – bringing the total airbag count to seven.
Other updates focus on interior features. All variants get a redesigned instrument cluster; the 2.5 4x4 Std and Quest 4x2 variants see their single DIN audio head unit enlarged to double DIN. All MIVEC VGT variants get the all-new Pajero Sport’s four-spoke steering to replace the previous three-spoke wheel. Lastly, the Adventure and Adventure X models get 8-way electric driver seat adjustment.
Launched locally in 2015, the current-generation Triton was updated last year with Mitsubishi’s latest generation 2.4-litre MIVEC turbodiesel with 181PS and 430Nm paired with either a 6-speed manual or 5-speed automatic transmission.
The lower-end 2.5 Std and Quest 4x2 variants continue with the previous model’s 2.5-litre turbodiesel engine. Outputs are rated at 110PS/200Nm for the Quest 4x2 model and 136PS/320Nm for the 2.5 Std. Both these variants are fitted with a 5-speed manual transmission.
