2017 Mitsubishi Triton Updated

The 2017 Mitsubishi Triton range is getting a big list of changes, in a bid to make the value-packed ute even more competitive. The changes are all to do with kit and specification; with the full Triton range benefitting from some extra additions.

One area that has been very fast-moving for this segment is no doubt the Infotainment unit. These days, they’re colour, touchscreen, easy to use and very powerful. Mitsubishi’s GLS and Exceed Tritons will get the ‘Smartphone Display Audio’ 7″ colour touchscreen infotainment unit, sporting the latest-and-greatest in smartphone connectivity: Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. These two models also get a ‘dark chrome’ finish, a leather-clad steering wheel and ‘platform style’ side steps.

Towards the lower end of the spec-spectrum, a reversing camera has been made standard on all style-side utes, the GLX now sports a ‘rear step bumper’, and all-terrain tyres are standard on GLX and GLX+ models. The all-terrain tyres look to be a Bridgestone Dueler A/T D693 in a 245/70 R16 flavour which will give better off-road performance compared to the normal highway-spec OE tyre. GLX model also gets Mitsubishi’s 6.1-inch touchscreen infotainment display, which used to find it’s home in the dash of the GLS model (before it updated).

2017 Mitsubishi Triton GLX – sporting new all-terrain tyres.

“With All-Terrain tyres, reversing camera and rear step bumper now available on GLX 4×4 manual at $37,000 recommended retail, the 2017 Triton range continues to offer compelling value for savvy light commercial buyers,” MMAL Executive Director of Marketing Tony Principe said. And we tend to agree; the Triton does represent very solid value in the lower specification ranks, especially when you add in the five year warranty.

    The full potential of this ute will not be reached until the GCM is raised to 6500 -6800kgs! That’s the only way they will become practical!
