hehehe.... if you look at the pictures carefully and compare, you would find that the models are being recycled from car launch to car launch one. smile_big.gif

Hi Gunner!
True, not just car launch, even for motorshow, race & streettuner events. The models are from the same few modelling firms. Chinese people often mentioned, if you managed to meet the same gal coincidently for more than 3 times, she could be yours. Hahaha!!! See whether you have luck with her in future... smile_big.gif

well the cargo size did increase, it looks more mean for the facelift now than earlier... next inline i hope the engine will be tuned higher, but sadly... we got to wait till we get better diesel here... euro2 is still far behind euro tat's on euro 5 now n heading euro 6, but if the give euro3 here then i believe we can have triton running on their optimum... try thai or sing euro3 diesel... u feel the diff...

Hi alxand,

Yes, the cargo bed increase is really good. With that cargo space, it could really fit a Kawasaki ZX6R real well. The Triton engine is already tuned to the most optimum. Tuning it further will deteriorates its FC. It could only tune further to match Navara's 400Nm torque only if it replaced its turbocharger with Variable Geometry Turbocharger.

VGT is turbocharger version of valve timing like MIVEC, VVT-i, i-VTEC, etc. It could change the amount of air intake depends on engine speed could help saving fuel. More air requires more fuel. With VGT, at low speed, the actuator allows less air into the combustion, while at high speed will allow more air in. Without VGT, at low speed will receive same amount of air causing wastage of fuel.

Yes, higher grade fuel could generate better efficiency due to higher calories and less difficult to burn. Euro 2 and Ron 97 onwards are less encouraged to be brought in. There's reason why not giving you the nice fuel. If you get Euro 5 diesel, your Triton will get way better FC without side effect as using Euro 1.

It still dont look any better to me than before. I think it needed a butt-lift not a face lift! That saggy ass lookin rear also wobble like crazy over bump. definitely got little chassis rigid here. This Mitsu disappoint me from day one launch, compare with Storm big step backward in my opinion.



Comparing Triton and Navara, which one wobbles more when going thru bumpy roads?

Very much similar to the front end of the montero! Just like any other suv's it shares the same platform.
