Mitsubishi Motors Malaysia (MMM) has introduced a new Mitsubishi Triton variant – the Triton VGT AT Premium, as well as a limited edition Mitsubishi ASX Adventure variant.
The Triton pick-up is a ‘rally inspired’ model built on Mitsubishi Motors’ experience and success in such events as the tough Dakar Rally (7 consecutive wins and 12 overall victories). The new variant, Triton VGT AT Premium is made to cater to those with an active lifestyle but desire an affordable pick-up truck for daily use. Included with a new 17” alloy wheel design, leather seats and reverse camera with guidelines, this variant is priced at RM 116,300.
This new Triton is powered by the award-winning 2.4-litre MIVEC turbo diesel engine with variable valve timing and variable geometry turbo (VGT), that produces 181 PS and 430 Nm of torque. Safety kit includes Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD), Brake Assist (BA), Active Stability with Traction Control and Hill-Start Assist (HSA) and Trailer Stability Assists (TSA).
The Triton is imported from Mitsubishi Motors’ global production hub in Thailand. Incidentally, the Triton is the only pick-up* truck with a 200,000 km or 5 years warranty (*up to 2.4L category, except Quest variant which still gets 5 years but up to 100,000 km only).
Its interior sports the signature Sporty Blue lining accents on the door trim and leather seats. The ASX Adventure also comes with aluminum pedals and air vent rings for a sportier look.
The ASX Adventure comes in a metallic Sporty Blue paint job and is 2WD. It is priced at RM 123,988 and includes a 5 year, unlimited mileage warranty. All prices quoted here are on-the-road without insurance for private registration in Peninsular Malaysia.
Aside from these, MMM is offering year-end goodies i.e. cash bonus of up to RM 11,000 for selected ASX variants and RM 8,000 for selected Triton variants for bookings and registrations made before 31 December 2017.
