A comprehensive review of the Mitsubishi Triton SUV

Mitsubishi Triton SUV pricing

There are quite a number of Tritons on sale in Australia. There are 18 variations in fact, when you consider the different fuel types, gearboxes, drivetrains and body styles.

2019 Single Cab Mitsubishi Triton

There are only three single cab Tritons on sale, each in the GLX trim. However, you can choose between having a 2.4-litre petrol, RWD, manual transmission and chassis cab model or the same with the 2.4-litre turbo diesel engine and an auto/manual cog swapper. Alternatively, there's the same again but with the addition of four-wheel drive.

The GLX trim petrol model has a five-speed manual gearbox and features heavy-duty suspension, a front skid plate, 16-inch steel wheels, halogen headlamps, mudflaps, vinyl floor coverings, A/C, tilt and telescopic steering column adjustment, cruise control, central locking (with keyless entry), electric door mirrors, steering mounted audio and phone controls, seats for two, a 6.1-inch touchscreen infotainment display plus a USB input. You may also be able to opt for a reverse camera in this model (it depends on whether you have a tray installed by Mitsubishi). It also has active stability control, active traction control, trailer stability assist and hill start assist. As you can imagine, this is a no-frills workhorse model aimed at tradies and fleet buyers. It's still not a bad spec list though.

The 2WD diesel model obviously brings a more powerful and torquey engine and does away with the five-speed manual for either a six-speed auto or manual transmission. Finally, the 4x4 diesel model gets selectable four-wheel drive, a two-speed transfer box and 17-inch steel wheels for raised ground clearance.

The drive-away cost starts at $24,990 (currently on offer until 31 July 2019).

2019 Mitsubishi Triton Club Cab models

Opting for a club cab Triton opens up additional spec levels: the GLX ADAS, the GLX+ and the GLX base trim. All club cabs are 4WD, but you can only order the GLX club cabs with a manual gearbox.

Club cabs have an additional two seats to carry four passengers total. They also get Bluetooth phone connectivity and double the number of speakers that GLX single cabs have. These models have a four-spoke steering wheel rather than a three-spoke one.

GLX ADAS Tritons have a six-speed auto transmission bolted in. They also have front fog lamps, an auto-dimming rear-view mirror and Mitsubishi's ECO Drive indicator. Additional safety technology is added in the form of forward collision mitigation, lane departure warning and dusk-sensing headlights. The wipers also have a rain sensor.

The GLX+ model is the highest spec club cab on offer. It's also the only pick-up club cab model, the rest are chassis/tray configurations. Steel wheels are done away with in favour of 16-inch alloy rims and all-terrain tyres. Mitsubishi adds side steps, a floor console with a faux-leather lid, a larger 7-inch touchscreen that has Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, the aircon becomes an automatic climate control system and there are rear parking sensors and a camera as standard. The load bed has six tie-down rings.

The two lower-end club cab models are priced on application, while the top-spec model is currently on offer at a drive-away price of $39,990.

2019 Mitsubishi Triton Dual Cab models

Lastly, there are the dual cab Tritons. There's a single 2WD model with the 2.4-litre MIVEC diesel engine in the GLX ADAS dual cab pick-up. These models have a six-speed manual gearbox, five seats and the GLX's 6.1-inch touchscreen. There's also a rear body guard frame. The 2WD GLX ADAS also gets more comprehensive safety assists such as forward collision mitigation, lane departure warnings, active stability control, active traction control, trailer stability assist, hill start assist plus rear parking sensors, a reversing camera in addition to dusk-sensing headlights and rain-sensing wipers.

As for 4WD dual cab utes, there's a GLX pick-up body. This ute builds on the RWD dual cab, adding an auto, selectable 4WD, a transfer box and all-terrain tyres. It doesn't get some of the safety swag like the dusk-sensing headlights or rain-sensing wipers, and it also forgoes FCM and LDW in addition to missing front fog lamps. A cab chassis version is also on sale, but as this has no pick-up tray, you also miss out on bits like a rear bumper, parking camera and sensors.

The 4WD GLX ADAS with a pick-up body has all the features of the 2WD version, but with the option of an automatic transmission, selectable 4WD, a hi-lo transfer case and all-terrain tyres. A cab chassis variant is also produced that misses out on the rear bumper, parking sensors and camera of its pick-up alternative.

Moving through the range, we have the Triton 4WD GLX+. This ute gets a pick-up body as well as 16-inch alloy wheels, side steps, a black door sash, chrome door handles, climate control A/C, a 7-inch touchscreen with smartphone support for Android and Apple devices as well as two USB ports. It's currently on sale as a manual for the drive-away price of $42,490. It's currently free to upgrade to an automatic.

If you desire a little more comfort and road presence, you could plump for Mitsubishi's GLS. These models are noticeably more lifestyle-buyer orientated, with an optional paddle shifting automatic transmission, Super Select II 4WD, a centre diff, a sports bar and wide-rimmed 18-inch alloys. The headlamps auto level and are fitted with LED daytime running lights, the door mirrors have integrated indicators and there is a four-spoke steering wheel in leather. The gear shift gets the same treatment, while the floor covering is upgraded to a plush carpet covering. There's dual-zone climate control, six-speakers, second row USB power and sports fabric trimming the seats. Mitsubishi also incorporates extra MiTEC safety tech. This includes off-road modes, forward collision mitigation that looks out for pedestrians, lane departure warning, automatic high beam, front-facing parking sensors, blind-spot warning and lane changing assist as well as rear cross traffic alert. You'll currently have to fork out $46,990 for this model.

Finally, for an extra $4,000, the GLS Premium brings an extra level of passenger comfort. This model gets the paddle shifting automatic gearbox as well as a rear diff lock (an odd choice, considering this is the more luxury focussed model). It also wears a nudge bar, synthetic look interior trims, smart key, one-touch start and leather seat facings with front seat heating elements. The driver can also power adjust the driver's seat. This model also boasts a multi-around monitor.

Overview

Mitsubishi's latest version of the Triton ute is a little more expensive and fuel thirsty than before, but it is still a keenly priced vehicle. It's not the best in class – it won't tow the heaviest trailers and it can't carry the weightiest payloads. It's also smaller in size than many of its rivals (a plus for many while it may also be a con for other buyers), most reviewers said it was the finest Triton Mitsubishi has ever built.

Engine and performance

Most ute owners will be looking for the low-end pull of a turbocharged diesel. Mitsubishi's 2.4-litre diesel donk will fit that description neatly, but with peak power of 133kW at 3,500rpm, it's not the brawniest ute power plant on sale. Torque is much more in line with its rivals, at 430Nm kicking in at 2,500rpm.

There's also a petrol model for those who want it – the capacity is again 2.4 litres. This engine is a lot more modest, and with no forced induction, the engine produces a peak of 94kW at a very revvy 5,250rpm. Max torque measures 194Nm, again at a high rate of throttle – 4,000rpm. The 2WD single cab chassis GLX is the only Triton with this engine. It's getting a bit long in the tooth, having been in production since 1983 under various guises.

Transmission wise, there are three gearboxes installed in the Triton. The petrol model gets a five-speed manual gearbox. Diesel manual models have six speeds. Auto-equipped Tritons are also six speed, but with an additional sports mode for manual gear changes as needed.

What did car reviewers say about the Mitsubishi Triton's gearbox and engine?

Broadly speaking, it seems motoring journalists agreed that Mitsubishi missed a trick by not upping the power or torque output of the engine. However, thanks to all the other revisions made by engineers (purportedly 4,000 on the new MR generation facelifted model against the MQ edition), this Triton is summed up to be generally a step forward.

However, there was universal praise for the inclusion of a sixth cog on automatic models, which previously only had five. Obviously, having an extra top-end gear means that the gear ratios can be played with, and some journos picked up on the lower revs and noise levels at higher speed thanks to this change. A few said that it was quicker off the mark. That makes sense considering the new box has closer gear ratios, whereas the older one had to rev that bit more to make it to the next cog. Apparently, the revised transmission by Aisin also switches cogs as smooth as butter.

Fuel Efficiency

Unusually for a model update, the Triton has made a slight step backwards in fuel efficiency.

The fuel efficiency of the four-cylinder petrol block is listed as follows:

  • Combined: 11.4L/100km
  • Urban: 14.4L/100km
  • Extra-urban: 9.7L/100km

The fuel efficiency of the RWD diesel GLX single cab models is listed as follows:

  • Combined: 7.8L/100km
  • Urban: 9L/100km
  • Extra-urban: 7L/100km

The fuel efficiency of the 4WD GLX single cab chassis, the GLX double cab chassis, the GLX pick-up 4WD, the GLX+ double cab pick-up, the 4WD GLS and the GLX ADAS double cab 4WD is listed as follows:

  • Combined: 7.9L/100km
  • Urban: 9.2L/100km
  • Extra-urban: 7.2L/100km

Moving through the range, fuel usage rises quite sharply. The fuel efficiency of the GLS ADAS and Premium Tritons is listed as follows:

  • Combined: 8.6L/100km
  • Urban: 9.9L/100km
  • Extra-urban: 7.8L/100km

With the facelift, it transpires the Triton now uses more fuel than before. In some cases, equivalent models might burn through an extra litre per 100kms. Added to this, the brochure supplied data is only really useable as a comparison figure due to the massive number of variables in real-world driving.

Journalists pinned the blame on improved specs, meaning more weight as well as a less aerodynamic shape. One outlet said they spent up to 20% more on fuel than the manufacturer's official fuel economy numbers.

Handling

Reviewing the handling of a ute is a bit like getting behind the wheel of a truck or tractor and trying to evaluate its ride dynamics. They are designed to carry out a set of specific jobs, some off-road, some on. However, as more and more utes are now used for dual purposes, it seems fair to expect a little bit of driving comfort.

With many models sporting all-terrain tyres, steering is now slightly imprecise, according to the reviewers. One wrote it was bettered by the top-end HiLux, Ranger and Amarok models on-road. They did add though that they discerned Mitsubishi was squeezing the maximum possible level of comfort and handling from the chassis they've designed. Other outlets suggested the ride quality had improved. On top-end models, Mitsubishi has removed a leaf from the rear suspension that brings benefits like more give on-road but also carries the disadvantage of a lower payload capacity. On other models, you get the six-leaf heavy-duty suspension for better weight-carrying properties but a slightly more bouncy on-road/unladen ride.

One journalist commented that when empty, the ute was quite lively. This is likely because the suspension is designed with the ability to handle a reasonable trailer ball download and load in the tray. Most journalists praised Mitsubishi for still retaining the Triton's very small 11.8m turning circle (it's small for a ute).

Off-road, it seems that some testers weren't bowled over by the suspension and steering set-up, which vibrated noticeably at lower speeds when held against comparable utes. Finally, one publication seemingly summed the Triton's dynamics up well, when they said it was a lighter and sportier feeling ute than its rivals.

Interior and features

The Triton is built in GLX, GLX ADAS, GLX+, GLS and GLS Premium models.

The single cab models come in the base spec GLX trim only. These models have a modest suite of safety assists for the driver, two seats, cruise control, a 6.1-inch touchscreen, Bluetooth connectivity, AM/FM radio with a CD player, USB input, two speakers, keyless entry, manual temperature control, steering column adjustment, vinyl floor coverings, fabric seats and manual seat adjustment. For storage, there's a centre cubby box and tray, plus room for two cups and two bottles. These models are designed for working. They have fewer passenger comforts but can carry larger payloads than higher spec 4x4 models. The payload for a single-cab GLX Triton is as much as 1,284kg.

Club cab Tritons are all four-wheel drive. They come in GLX, GLX ADAS or GLX+ trim. The GLX trim is similar to the single cab trucks, quite minimalist and well suited to life as a tradie's ute. The GLX ADAS has extra active safety assists, like forward collision mitigation and lane departure warning. The GLX ADAS and the GLX+ also have dimming rear-view mirrors, dusk-detecting headlamps and rain-sensing wipers. As a pick-up, the GLX+ club cab also gets rear parking sensors and a camera. The GLX+ model offers a little more by way of passenger comforts, with a larger 7.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system and Apple CarPlay/Android Auto. In place of a CD player, buyers get access to DAB radio.

If you're after a ute that can haul five passengers and shorter loads, the double cab Tritons will be of more interest. You get extra tech too, especially on the top of the range GLS Premium, which features additional active safety assists, larger alloy wheels, a rear diff lock, LED headlights and other touches.

Reviewers liked the changes Mitsubishi made for this iteration of the Triton, mostly. They said the little touches of adding leather and softer touchpoints sparingly helped give it an air of a more premium space. The air circulator on some of the double cabs was apparently better than traditional dedicated air vents, though one reviewer complained it was as loud as a 747.

However, the Triton was knocked down for a lack of places to put bits and bobs like small change. Journalists said you'll likely end up sacrificing a cup holder or two to use for this purpose. Some reviewers criticised the re-use of parts from other Mitsubishi models, saying it detracted from the overall package.

Experts spoke about how the seats were nice and spacious, although quite upright in the rear of double cab Tritons. Overall, it seems the Triton doesn't massively shine here, but you must remember it is still cheaper than most mainstream ute builder's offerings.

Off-road

Comparing the findings of the reviewers, it transpires that the Triton isn't leading the class off-road. The Super-Select 4WD attracted a lot of praise but ground clearance became an issue, with some testers bottoming out. Fortunately, Mitsubishi installs thick underbody plating to protect vulnerable mechanical components.

However, only the top-spec GLS Triton has a diff locker, so serious off-roaders will either have to go for the highest-specced model or look to an aftermarket company to supply an air locker and bolt that into one of the other 4x4 Tritons.

Verdict

If you had to review the Triton in just one word, it would be value. Despite elevated prices across the range after a redesign, it's still one of the cheaper utes on the market. And you get a good amount for your money. It's also a physically trim ute, which makes it ideal for those who work in cities or have a tight driveway. However, the Triton has a much lower tow capacity than the majority of rivals who claim 3.5 tonnes. Realistically, Mitsubishi's figures are probably more true to life than competitors after factoring in payloads. Fuel usage has risen slightly too, but you do get more active safety tech and the best-looking Triton built to date.
