About the Mitsubishi Triton

Show More

Utes make up a huge portion of new cars sold in Australia, and the Mitsubishi Triton represents one of the best options on the market. Mitsubishi competes strongly on value, and there’s arguably no greater value vehicle in its line-up than the Triton.

The top-spec GSR we have here is a good candidate against the Ranger XLT and Isuzu D-Max X-Terrain, but it undercuts its competitors by quite a substantial margin.

If you are coming out of a Toyota HiLux or Ford Ranger and want to save some coin without compromising on practicality and reliability, the Triton is a good choice and certainly worth a test drive from our Experience Centre.

The Triton GSR is priced at $52,740 before on-road costs.

While the defunct GLS Premium made extensive use of chrome for its exterior, the GSR relies on gloss black exterior trim and includes matching black-finish 18-inch alloy wheels.

As a top-spec ute, the GSR has all the features you’d expect. That includes leather upholstery, heated front seats, and power adjustment for the driver’s pew.

These are in addition to features found elsewhere in the Triton range, including a 7.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, as well as proximity entry with push-button start, power-folding exterior mirrors, front and rear parking sensors, dual-zone climate control, and LED headlights.

There’s a surround-view camera, blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert standard.

Under the bonnet sits a 2.4-litre four-cylinder turbo-diesel producing 133kW of power and 430Nm of torque, mated with either a six-speed manual or six-speed automatic transmission. Only the auto is available with the GSR.

Payload is 901kg, or 69kg and 102kg less than that of a D-Max X-Terrain or Ranger XLT.

Braked towing capacity also falls short of key rivals. At 3100kg, it hauls 400kg less than a HiLux, D-Max or Ranger.

Over a mix of city, suburban and highway driving, we averaged 10.1L/100km. Mitsubishi claims a combined cycle rating of 8.6L/100km.

Mitsubishi recently rolled out a 10-year, 200,000km warranty, though if you don’t service your Triton at a Mitsubishi dealer it’s reduced to five years and 100,000km.

Mitsubishi offers 10 years of capped-price servicing, with services costing $399 (year 1), $499 (years 2, 3, 5 and 7), $599 (year 9), $699 (years 4, 6 and 10) and $999 (year 8).
