Bangkok – November 8, 2021: The latest Mitsubishi Triton pickup truck has been proven to be a popular choice amongst customers in Thailand and around the globe for various reasons. Apart from its strong and powerful exterior design, the pickup truck is also recognized for its technology and features, engine performance and driving dynamics, reliability and durability. All these traits are put together in a package that has been ‘Engineered Beyond Tough’, giving Thai drivers one of the most competitively-placed model in its category. And here are the top seven reasons why Mitsubishi Triton is a popular buy.
1. Powerful and Stylish Design
The first striking feature of Mitsubishi Triton is its powerful exterior design. The advanced ‘Dynamic Shield’ design language gives the required robust, size and presence of a pickup truck with an upmarket and premium disposition. Designed with a ‘Rock Solid’ concept reflects toughness that is fully underpinned by engineering prowess and knowhow.
The front-end is accentuated by the higher positioning of the Bi-LED headlamps and fog lamps, giving Mitsubishi Triton a bold look. At 700 mm above ground level, the head- and fog lamps are less vulnerable to water damage on flooded roads or stone chips from vehicles in front.
Inside, the stylish interior of Mitsubishi Triton is an expression of a progressive and robust theme with frame surroundings for switch panels and air outlets. A premium high-quality look and feel is created by soft-touch materials and stitching on the center console, armrests and parking brake for the complete premium feel.
2. Advanced Safety Features
Another quality of Mitsubishi Triton that has endeared it to so many drivers is its high impact-safety cabin structure or RISE (Reinforced Impact Safety Evolution) body. RISE body has been tested in challenging conditions around the world. Consequently, occupants are protected by an efficient energy-absorbing structure that is highly deformation-resistant.
To augment that, Mitsubishi Triton is equipped with class leading and advanced active safety and driver assistance systems. They include Forward Collision Mitigation (FCM) system that detects vehicles and pedestrians ahead; Blind Spot Warning with Lane Change Assist (BSW with LCA) that helps avoid sideswiping another vehicle when changing lanes by alerting the driver. The system detects a collision probability with a vehicle coming from behind moving to the same direction from the side or rear bumper.
Mitsubishi Triton also comes with Rear Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA) that helps avoid collisions when reversing and Ultrasonic Misacceleration Mitigation System (UMS) that reduces accidents resulting from improper use of the accelerator when moving off or reversing in car parks and other confined spaces. Other advanced safety technologies also include the Multi Around Monitor that uses 4 cameras to monitor the area around the vehicle, with a bird’s eye view image of obstacles on the display, and Parking Sensors that provide assisted parking.
3. 4WD System Gives Enhanced All-terrain Performance
For its capability on the move, Mitsubishi Triton comes with Active Stability Traction Control (ASTC) that features the tough and proven Super Select 4WD-II system. This provides the pickup truck with superior all-terrain performance. Super Select 4WD-II features 4 drive modes. 2H (2WD High-Range) is best used for normal road conditions and for fuel efficiency. 4H (4WD High-Range) is on full-time all wheel control allowing to drive relatively high speed on slippery surfaces, 4HLc (4WD High-Range with Locked Transfer) is ideal for rugged terrain with low-grip surfaces while running on relatively high speed. And 4LLc (4WD Low-Range with Locked Transfer) provides maximum traction for off-road conditions. In 4LLc, drivers can choose from 4 off-road modes including Gravel, Mud/Snow, Sand, and Rock settings.
4. Responsive Performance
Mitsubishi Triton powered by 2.4L MIVEC Turbo Clean Diesel engine with 430 Nm and 181 ps. It is a class leading output that is channeled through the six-speed automatic transmission that improves performance and enhances fuel economy and engine durability. It also results in more powerful acceleration with improved refinement. It is also biodiesel B20-compatible.
5. Worry-free Experiences
All Mitsubishi vehicles will be supported by Mitsubishi Motors Thailand’s aftersales services that promise 'Rao Doo Lare, Khun Khae Kab‘ (We Take Care, You Just Drive), provided by 240 dealership nationwide. The company’s aftersales initiative promises drivers access to Genuine Service, Genuine Parts, Genuine Technician, Genuine Performance and Genuine Network and Accessibility.
Additionally, customers will also be eligible for ‘Mitsubishi Service Package’ that includes 5-year free periodical maintenance services and 5-year free roadside service. Mitsubishi Motors Thailand is also raising the aftersales benchmark by offering a 5-year warranty and 5-year free labor cost as standard, with an option for Warranty Plus Program that extends the period up to seven years. This allows customers to enjoy Mitsubishi vehicles backed by reliable services with affordable cost of ownership and desirable resale value.
6. Awards and Recognitions
Mitsubishi Triton was named Car of the Year for 2021 in the category of ‘The Best 4WD Pickup under 2,500 cc’ award. It continues to reign as the most winning 4WD truck in its segment from Thailand Car of the Year Awards, judged by automotive experts in cooperation with Grand Prix International Public Company Limited.
