The Mitsubishi Triton

Written by

Shaun McGowan

This car is routinely among Australia’s 10 top-selling novated vehicles. It’s a proven package representing excellent value for money, with decent performance and economy - especially in model grades near the top of the range, such as GLS and GSR.

While the Triton can’t go head-to-head on features with range-topping Hilux and Ranger models, it comes in substantially cheaper and still manages to field an impressive features set.

4WD with a difference

GLS and GSR Triton variants get Mitsubishi’s excellent Super Select 2 transfer case, which allows the vehicle to do something most other 4X4 utes cannot: It can be operated in 4WD high range, with the centre diff unlocked.

This means you can use 4WD high range for added surefootedness on high traction surfaces - for example wet or dry bitumen, or dirt roads. If you tried that in most other utes with conventional 4X4 architecture, the risk of transmission damage is excessive.

Mitsubishi Triton towing power

Tow capacity of the Triton is 3100kg in most model grades (except the entry-level 2.4 petrol models) whereas in most competing utes it’s 3500kg. Don’t let this fool you, however: it’s typically impractical to achieve 3500kg towing in essentially any dual-cab ute without grossly compromising the payload. (Often, simply putting a person in every seating position is enough to overload the vehicle while towing 3500kg.)

In summary

One important feature missing from the top Triton model grades - which is available in competitors - is adaptive cruise control. This is an important consideration for owners who will spend a lot of time driving on the freeway.

Top-spec Ranger and Hilux also feature onboard 240-volt AC power via an inbuilt inverter, which is useful if you need to charge a laptop, or power tool batteries, for example, on the fly.

Triton is certainly not the best ute on the market at any single thing - such as performance, features, off-road ability, towing, or load-carrying capacity - but a compelling case can be made that it is perhaps the best all-rounder.

Mitsubishi offers an industry-leading 10-year warranty - the only catch being that you must get the vehicle serviced, on time, at an authorised Mitsubishi dealer to qualify for that, otherwise, the warranty reverts to five years.
