Mitsubishi has announced some running changes to its popular Triton ute range, which it’s calling a “22.5MY” vehicle.

Production commences in April, with arrivals expected in the middle of 2022.

Prices are up across the board, with most models up by $1000 but some slugged with price increases of up to $2450.

All models bar the petrol-powered GLX cab chassis 4×2 manual now feature the larger 7.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system with wired Android Auto and Apple CarPlay and a four-speaker sound system (six speakers in the GSR).

The petrol GLX sticks with the smaller 6.1-inch screen and two speakers.

The GSR regains its surround-view camera as standard fitment, having lost it as part of the so-called MY22 Triton changes announced last June unless buyers specified the Tan Orange Interior package.

It’s viewed on a 7.0-inch Display Audio infotainment system, different to the 7.0-inch MiDisplay unit found on other variants including the GLS one rung down.

The latest “22.5MY” update follows a raft of minor specification tweaks made as part of the aforementioned update last year, which saw prices increase by between $250 and $1200.

The GLX and GLX-R 4×4 dual-cab utes lost their manual variants, though a GLX-R 4×2 dual-cab auto joined the range. All GLX-R models received new black alloy wheels.

The GLX ADAS trim level was axed, but the GLX dual-cab ute and cab-chassis gained the additional active safety and driver assist features of the defunct variant.

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.

Fuel Economy

The base Mitsubishi Triton GLX, with the 2.4-litre petrol engine, consumes 11.4L/100km.

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.

All Tritons have a 75L fuel tank.

Dimensions

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.
