We’re not quite halfway through 2021 and there’s a 2022 Mitsubishi Triton with a reshuffled range.
The mid-range GLX-R is no longer available as a 4×4 dual-cab manual, though the surviving 4×4 auto model has been joined by a 4×2 dual-cab auto. It’s also picked up new black alloy wheels.
The GLX 4×4 dual-cab ute is also now auto-only.
The GLX ADAS trim level, which adds active safety and driver assist technology to the base GLX grade, has been axed.
However, the GLX dual-cab ute and cab-chassis now include the additional features of the old GLX ADAS.
The GLX ADAS club-cab chassis auto has been renamed GLX, though its manual equivalent – plus any single-cab GLX models – still lack features like autonomous emergency braking and automatic headlights.
There have been some other feature adjustments across the range.
The GSR no longer comes standard with a surround-view camera.
Instead, you’ll need to select the Tan Orange interior option to get this, much as the feature is only available on GLS models when you select the Deluxe option package.
Prices increased across the board for MY21 and they’ve done so again for MY22, except for one model.
That’s the GSR, which is $250 cheaper than before at $53,240 before on-road costs.
The rest of the range has seen price increases of between $250 and $1200.
The Triton received a substantial refresh for 2019, featuring a bold, more truck-like front fascia.
It’s available in either a cab chassis or a regular ute with a tub, and can be had in either Single Cab, Double Cab or in-between Club Cab body styles.

The 2022 Mitsubishi Triton is available with two engines.
Available only in the base GLX Single Cab cab chassis is a naturally-aspirated 2.4-litre four-cylinder petrol engine producing 94kW of power and 194Nm of torque. It’s available only with a five-speed manual transmission.
All other 2022 Mitsubishi Triton models use a 2.4-litre turbo-diesel four-cylinder engine producing 133kW of power and 430Nm of torque. It’s available with either a six-speed manual or six-speed automatic transmission.
In rear-wheel drive form, the 2022 Mitsubishi Triton diesel consumes 7.8L/100km on the combined cycle in Single Cab with a manual transmission and 8.3L/100km with an automatic.
In Double Cab auto guise, it uses 8.4L/100km.
With four-wheel drive, the Mitsubishi Triton diesel consumes 7.9L/100km on the combined cycle with a manual transmission and 8.6L/100km with an automatic.
The base Mitsubishi Triton GLX, with the 2.4-litre petrol engine, consumes 11.4L/100km.
All Tritons have a 75L fuel tank.
The 2022 Mitsubishi Triton measures 5295mm long in Club Cab guise and 5305mm in Double Cab ute guise. Cab Chassis length is dependent on the tray.
The Triton is 1775mm tall as a rear-wheel drive Single Cab and 1780mm as a rear-wheel drive Double Cab or any four-wheel drive variant.
This excludes the Single Cab 4WD (1785mm) and the GLX-R, GLS and GSR Double Cabs (1790mm).
All Tritons measure 1815mm wide.
Two different four-wheel drive systems are available on the Triton, with the GLS and GSR models using Mitsubishi’s Super Select II system that adds a full-time four-wheel drive mode.
Four-wheel drive models use All-Terrain tyres except for the GLX-R, GLS and GSR, while only the GLX+, GLX-R, GLS and GSR have a rear differential lock.
The approach and departure angles of 4×4 Triton models are 30 degrees and 22 degrees, respectively (31 degrees and 23 degrees in the GSR). Ramp breakover angle is between 25 and 26 degrees on all models.
Unbraked towing capacity is 750kg across the entire range, while braked varies. It’s 1800kg in the petrol GLX, 2500kg in the diesel single cab-chassis, and 3000-3100kg across the rest of the range.
Mitsubishi’s standard warranty covers five years or 100,000km, but so long as you return to one of its dealerships at each service this extends to 10 years or 200,000km.
Servicing at dealerships also lets you take advantage of Mitsubishi’s 10 years of capped-price servicing.
Maintenance in the Triton is required every 12 months or 15,000km. There are two different capped-price service schedules for the different powertrains on offer.
First is the base 4×2 petrol:
And the 4×2 and 4×4 turbo-diesel:
