Seen at Mitsubishi Motors Malaysia’s Glenmarie showroom, the highest-spec 2015 Mitsubishi Triton features a restyled front fascia with a new grille, xenon HID headlamps with daytime-running lights, and new fog lamps. Moving along the side, the alloy wheels are now of a seven twin-spoke design and wrapped in 245/65 series tyres. At the rear, the taillights also receive a redesign and a reverse camera is fitted as well.
Previously, Mitsubishi Motors Malaysia posted a studio image of the top-spec Triton’s interior and it looks like there isn’t any huge departure from what was shown (on this variant at least).
Standard features on the 2015 Mitsubishi Triton VGT Adventure (5AT) variant are manually-adjustable leather seats with various pieces of trim made of soft touch and black gloss materials. A 6.1-inch touch-screen multimedia unit which is linked to the reverse camera sits just above the dual-zone climate control system, surrounded by black glossy plastic.
Below them are the cigarette lighter port with a USB input slot. Moving to the centre console is the five-speed automatic transmission gear shifter with sequential shifting and the Easy Select 4WD dial with shift-on-the-fly capability. The driver’s steering wheel features on-wheel controls for both the multimedia unit and cruise control function. Also available are paddle shifters, the first pick-up truck in Malaysia to feature them!
Meanwhile at the rear of the dual-cab pick-up, passengers have the luxury of a centre arm rest with cup holders.
Under the hood, the all-new Triton VGT Adventure (5AT) will not be receiving Mitsubishi’s new 2.4-litre MIVEC VG turbo diesel but instead will be equipped with the familiar 2.5-litre DI-D Hyper Common Rail DOHC Intercooled Turbocharged (VGT), delivering 178PS and 400Nm of torque to a five-speed automatic transmission.
Keep in mind that this is only one of five variants that will be offered come launch day with tentative prices starting from RM71k all the way up to RM114k.
