Mitsubishi Australia has revealed a limited-run Sport model as part of an updated Triton range set to touch down in December.

    Just 400 examples of the Sport will be offered, based on the Triton GLS Deluxe with a range of styling add-ons.

    Red accents feature on the skid plate, side steps, and rear bumper, and there are unique decals on the bonnet and tailgate. The exterior trim is blacked out, and the badge on the front bumper is finished in chrome.

    The body can be painted white, black, or orange. Inside, the seats are trimmed in black leather with red stitching to round out the sporty theme.

    Power comes from the same 2.4-litre turbo-diesel four-cylinder making 133kW of power and 430Nm of torque featured elsewhere in the range, mated with a six-speed automatic and switchable four-wheel drive.

    A locking rear differential is standard, as is the more sophisticated version of Mitsubishi’s four-wheel drive system which allows four-wheel drive running on sealed surfaces.

    Pricing kicks off at $56,440 before on-road costs, $1500 more than the GLS Deluxe on which it’s based.

    Along with the Sport, the Triton has been treated to a number of rolling updates for 2023. Gone is the aftermarket head unit that was being fitted to GLX-R and GLS models, replaced with a factory 7.0-inch unit featuring Android Auto and Apple CarPlay.

    The GLX has gained black side steps as standard, while the base 2.4-litre petrol GLX Single Cab Chassis has been discontinued.

    With 23,205 deliveries to date across 4×2 and 4×4 models, the Triton is comfortably the best-selling member of the Mitsubishi range in Australia ahead of the Outlander (14,000) to date in 2022.

    That puts it behind the Toyota HiLux and Ford Ranger, and narrowly ahead of the Isuzu D-Max.
