In this video, Jenny gives an in-depth full review of the 2020 Mitsubishi Triton GLX+ Dual Cab 4×4. UTEs are definitely gaining popularity as everyday cars and, consequently, getting more and plusher.
The new Triton brings back some of the nostalgia that UTEs were mostly used as working machines, price and ability was more important than stylishness of the cabin. The latest Mitsubishi Triton is simply focused on those traditional ute values rather than bling and is also more affordable.
The engine is a 2.4 l inline 4 diesel with variable valve timing that produces 133 kW and 430 Nm of torque from 2500 revs. Officially it consumes 8.6 l per 100 km and it packs a 6-speed automatic with a manual shift mode.
The bit rougher ride for the Triton also means more payload and with 945 kg in this respect the Triton delivers. Unbraked and braked towing capacities are at 750 and 3100 kg respectively and the max tow ball load is 310 kg.
The Triton weighs 1955 kg and it can carry a lot, so the engine is definitely not zippy in any way. It pulls evenly and that is very nice, the top torque is available from 2500 revs, so that’s OK, although not stunningly low.
Along with GLX and GLS trims, Mitsubishi has also added a Toby Price Edition which is limited in numbers. There are also single, club cab and dual cab bodies which, combined with the trims, drive options, and gearboxes give 22 variants of the Triton truck to choose from.
We love our utes in Australia and the Mitsubishi Triton against the sale-topping Toyota HiLux and Ford Ranger as well as strong offerings in the Isuzu D-Max, Nissan Navara, and Mazda BT-50.
