New Mit­subishi Tri­ton re­vealed

Motor Equipment News - - OEM -

Mit­subishi’s new-gen­er­a­tion 2015 Tri­ton ute has made its in­ter­na­tional de­but at a launch in Thai­land, where it will be built.

Mit­subishi says the new Tri­ton will be more ef­fi­cient, of­fer high lev­els of safety, and raise the bar for pas­sen­ger car-like driv­ing per­for­mance, while re­tain­ing the dura­bil­ity and re­li­a­bil­ity it’s be­come renowned for.

Power comes from a new all-alu­minium 2.4-litre Mivec vari­able-ge­om­e­try turbo-diesel, with a mas­sive 20 per­cent im­prove­ment in fuel econ­omy, ex­pected to be best in class., and paired to a new six-speed man­ual trans­mis­sion or op­tional five-speed auto.

The new Tri­ton’s bold, ath­letic de­sign is out­stand­ingly aero­dy­namic for a util­ity, con­tribut­ing to fuel ef­fi­ciency and quiet per­for­mance.

In­te­rior space and load ca­pac­ity are fur­ther im­proved, while a fo­cus on sound in­su­la­tion, ab­sorp­tion and vi­bra­tion damp­ing con­trib­utes sig­nif­i­cantly to cabin quiet­ness.

The new Tri­ton is de­signed to be as easy to ma­noeu­vre as a pas­sen­ger car, with a turn­ing cir­cle of 11.8m.

“This very sharp new Tri­ton will per­form the dual role of work truck and fam­ily car bet­ter than ever,” said Mit­subishi Mo­tors sales and mar­ket­ing head Daniel Cook.

“Whether as a tough-as-nails, dol­lar-earn­ing business as­set or a comfy, sporty, fam­ily ad­ven­ture ve­hi­cle, Tri­ton al­ready en­joys a mas­sive New Zealand rep­u­ta­tion with busi­nesses and pri­vate own­ers alike.

“Now there’s a sig­nif­i­cant leap for­ward in pas­sen­ger com­fort, ma­noeu­vra­bil­ity and fuel ef­fi­ciency, while de­liv­er­ing even more of the tough­ness, re­li­a­bil­ity and safe of­froad per­for­mance that have made Tri­ton such a suc­cess.”

The new Tri­ton will launch in New Zealand dur­ing Q2 2015. No de­tail is yet avail­able on the New Zealand model range.
