Triton gets tough
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.
