Tri­ton gets tough

Eastern Reporter Bayswater & Bassendean - - DRIVEWAY - Sam Jeremic

MIT­SUBISHI is the lat­est brand to add a tough-guy vari­ant to its ute range, an­nounc­ing a new GSR vari­ant.

The brand says the new trim level brings a “tough and modern-look­ing” vari­ant to the range, how­ever un­like many of its ri­vals there are no me­chan­i­cal or sus­pen­sion up­grades.

Start­ing at $51,890 plus on roads, it adds ex­te­rior touches in­clud­ing 18-inch black al­loy wheels, black dy­namic shield de­sign, grille, head­lamp gar­nish, skid plate, door mir­rors, door han­dles and side­steps, while in­side ad­di­tions in­clude 360-de­gree cam­era with steer­ing wheel cam­era switch, leather trimmed seats, steer­ing wheel and park brake level/shift knob, power driver seat ad­just­ment and heated front seats.

There are a num­ber of op­tion packs, in­clud­ing a tan orange in­te­rior with tan orange high­lights on leather seats, orange con­sole box and knee pads, while there is also a choice of ton­neau packs: soft ($2699), hard ($4699) and roll­top ($4999).

Each also adds a black sports bar, un­der rail tub liner, tail­gate as­sist, floor mat set and more.

Mit­subishi has also an­nounced a new mid-spec Tri­ton, with the GLX-R.

Sit­ting be­tween the GLX+ and GLS and priced from $41,990, the GLX-R adds 18-inch al­loy wheels, large fog lamps, chrome door mir­rors, front bumper gar­nish, door han­dles and a sil­ver front grille.

The GLX-R is avail­able now, while the GSR will ar­rive in deal­er­ships this month.
