2018 MITSUBISHI TRITON 2WD
The only ute loaded like this.
All-new Triton is the only ute to bring you a 10-year warranty. From the ground up it’s been designed for reliability and durability. Safety’s taken care of with the highest safety 5 star safety rating thanks to 7 airbags, including a driver’s knee airbag on very model, Active Stability Control, Active Traction Control and Trailer Stability Assist.
Hard work is no sweat with the choice of 6-speed manual and 5-speed auto, increased power from the new 2.4L diesel engine and a tray that’s 10% bigger. Despite the rugged new good looks and the power to back it up, Triton’s very smooth and quiet on and off road with greatly reduced noise, vibration and harshness levels.
2.4L All-alloy DiD MIVEC Engine
Triton’s always been known for bringing the power when it counts. The brand new 2.4L all-alloy DiD MIVEC engine boosts the same torque output on all modes. That’s a massive 437Nm of trailer-pulling, hill climbing grunt.
At lower revs torque is smoother for better control and increased traction in off-road conditions. Power is up but fuel consumption is down by up to 21%, just 7.0 – 7.6L per 100km* across the range.
Triton 2WD Safety & Security
The new off road mode gives you great performance in the rough, the gravel, the snow or a mixture of them all. For better towing there’s now a Trailer Stability Assist system.
Active Traction Control
Active Traction Control (ATC) helps maintain the car’s traction on the most slippery or rugged surfaces by automatically controlling the engine’s output – so driving wheels are prevented from spinning. Sensing loss of traction in any wheel ATC applies braking force to it and sends extra power and torque to other wheels with traction, to keep your Mitsubishi Triton moving.
Active Stability Control
Active Stability Control provides the driver with greater control in tough cornering situations, reducing the chance of under-steer or over-steer by adjusting engine power and applying the brakes independently on each wheel. The result – a tighter, safer driving line.
Multi-Mode Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS) Electronic Brakeforce Distribution (EBD)
Triton’s intelligent 4 channel, 4-sensor braking system monitors different wheel speed and activates brakes to individual wheels when required. It allows you to keep manoeuvrability under heavy braking and slippery road conditions.
EBD detects when you are carrying passengers or heavier loads and automatically increases rear-braking force on demand.
Trailer Stability Assist system
You can use Triton’s improved towing weight safely thanks to Mitsubishi’s Trailer Stability Assist system. If the trailer steps out of line, sensors detect sway, brakeforce is applied to the appropriate wheel and engine power is adjusted to stabilise the motion. The stop lamp is illuminated while the brake control of the Trailer Stability Assist system operates.
Every model of Triton gives you 7 airbags, which include driver, passenger, side, curtain and driver’s knee airbags. The front passenger airbag can be deactivated to accommodate a child seat.
Here’s another innovative feature that’s there just in case. If you unintentionally hit your accelerator pedal as well as your brake pedal in an emergency situation, the new SmartBrake system sports the error, cancels out the message from the gas pedal and puts full concentration on your braking.
All models feature central locking and engine imobilisers for convenience and real security. Just one press of a button on the key ring and all doors are unlocked. GLS makes the working day even easier with the addition of keyless operating system.
Sports Bucket Seats Up Front
Another significant upgrade is the new front sports bucket seats on every model of Triton. They’re safer than bench seats and much nicer to ride in. They also protect their occupants with airbags. All seats across the range have 3-point seat belts. There are even front and rear seat belt warning lights to make sure those little ones are buckled up.
Even under load Triton gives you plenty of stopping power. The ABS braking system with EBD features large ventilated discs at the front and drums at the rear.
As with every aspect of the all-new Triton, safety is improved, achieving a 5-Star ANCAP safety rating on all models. A tough anti-corrosion steel chassis, combined with Mitsubishi’s Reinforced Impact Safety Evolution body design (RISE), makes Triton stiff and safer in a collision. RISE means the high-strength steel cabin keeps its shape and directs the energy of an impact away from occupants. It also means a lighter kerb weight which means impressive fuel economy, improved handling and greater payloads.
All models boast ASC and ATC, and surround all occupants with 7 airbags. The Multi-Mode ABS and EBD stop you locking up in tight situations. Wellside models features high-mounted rear stoplights, keeping you safe from the guy behind you. In emergency braking situations over 55km/h, the Emergency Stop Signals system instantly activates hazard lights to warn others. The speed limiter slows you down if you’re getting near your preset speed limit. The new ISOFIX system on double cabs is the safety way to secure child seats in the back.
