Mitsubishi & Triton Edit
Since 2006, the famous Mitsubishi Triton pickup truck has taken the market by storm. From the harsh jungles of Borneo in East Malaysia, to the streets of West Malaysia, the award-winning pickup truck has become a staple among Malaysians. Currently, Mitsubishi Malaysia offers 6 variants for sale. The Triton today goes toe-to-toe with the likes of the Toyota Hilux, Mazda BT-50, Ford Ranger and Isuzu D-max in the country.
Mitsubishi Motors Malaysia currently offers up to 6 variants of the Mitsubishi Triton for sale. It starts with the base Quest, M/T, A/T. Then, the mid-tier M/T Premium, A/T Premium, and the range-topping Athlete.

The Mitsubishi Triton can be had in Sun Flare Orange Pearl, Jet Black Mica, White Diamond, Graphite Gray, and Sterling Silver.
For a vehicle that is designed for rugged terrains, there is nothing much to shout about the interior as Mitsubishi has blown all their budget for the features and exterior of the truck. It comes with bog standard leather seats and upholstery with piano black and chrome trims.
Currently the facelifted version has most of its shiny, chrome materials swapped out in place for black matte plastic trims. In addition, the facelifted version is fitted with a more aggressive, boxy design. All variants come with Halogen headlights with the exception of the Athlete variant which comes with LED projector headlights. The Triton also comes with 18” Alloy wheels for the Athlete and A/T Premium. The M/T Premium gets 17” Alloy wheels while the A/T and M/T spec get 16” Alloy Wheels.

All the Mitsubishi Tritons in Malaysia get a 6.1-inch infotainment screen as standard with the only exception of the M/T and A/T. For the A/T Premium and Athlete, both these specs get a 7-inch screen with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay.
The Mitsubishi Triton is powered by the 2.4L, 4-cylinder MIVEC turbo diesel engine. It is capable of dishing out 181 PS/ 430 Nm of torque. For transmissions, only the M/T, M/T Premium, and Quest are available with a 6-speed Manual Transmission while the A/T, A/T Premium, and Athlete can be had with a 6-speed automatic transmission with Sport Mode to send power to all four wheels.
For an off-road-ready pickup, the Triton is armed with a set of Independent, Wishbone suspension for the front and a Rigid, Elliptic Leaf Suspension at the rear. The wheels are also controlled by a rack and pinion steering wheel.
The Triton Athlete comes with Mitsubishi’s state of the art Mitsubishi Advanced Safety System (Forward Collision Mitigation, Blind Spot Warning, Lane Change Assist, Rear Cross Traffic Alert, Auto High Beam, and 360-degree parking camera).
In addition, all specs come with ABS, Ultrasonic Misacceleration Mitigation System, Brake Assist, Stability Control, Traction control, Hill-start Assist, and Trailer stability assist. Only the Athlete and A/T Premium can be had with a built-in dash cam on board along with Hill Decent Control. All specs come with reverse sensors as standard but only the Athlete, A/T Premium, and M/T Premium come with a reverse camera.
All in all, the Mitsubishi Triton has been a staple as a workhorse truck for Malaysians. It’s done everything from racing through the desert dunes of the Dakar Rally to traversing the harsh terrains of our tropical jungle and even for daily, commercial use. The Triton triumphs above all as an affordable performance machine packaged neatly inside a compact pickup truck.
