2024 Mitsubishi Triton

2024 Mitsubishi Triton

Another well-built diesel ute for the worker comes to the forefront.  Built for both work and play, Mitsubishi’s latest Triton has what it takes to work hard and play hard.  All the important features you’ll need are on even the simplest Triton models, with all the bells and whistles added to higher-spec versions of the rather handsome 2024 Mitsubishi Triton Ute.  These nice utes initially come in single cab, double cab, rear-wheel-drive (RWD), and four-wheel-drive (4WD) too, which makes your choice that much easier to better suit your own daily needs and requirements. 

The day and week are finally over.  You close the office door, lock it, and sling the keys into your bag.  You turn around and head over the dry earth, and the Triton looks striking nestled under the acacia tree’s bright yellow canopy at the edge of the carpark.  Your new GLS Triton Ute awaits as the Impulse Blue metallic (GLX+, GLS) exterior glistens in the sun, just a picture as it poses like a thoroughbred ready to be raced.  Other exterior options for the 2024 Mitsubishi Triton Ute are solid White (GLX, GLX+, GLS), White Diamond prestige (GLS, GSR), Black Mica prestige (GLX+, GLS, GSR), solid Red (GLX+, GLS), Blade Silver metallic (GLX, GLX+, GLS), Graphite Grey metallic (all models), and Yamabuki Orange prestige (GSR).

As you walk back to the Triton, the dust puffs up under your boots, and as you sink back into the silver-stitched leather driver’s seat, the cares of the day slip away.  You start up the motor, turn and drive back out of the carpark in complete comfort, all ready for some proper weekend R&R.  The 18-inch rubber chirps over the tarmac as you press the accelerator down firmly to quickly accelerate up to 100 km/h, ready to merge with motorway traffic.  All the 2024 Mitsubishi Triton models feature a black interior, though the GLX+ and GLS feature silver stitching, and the GSR orange stitching.

The drive home will be a long one, as you need to pick up the generator from Bill who is out on the building site.  The dual-zone climate control is already working a treat to keep you cool for the journey home.  The softly padded interior surfaces look stylish, the silver accent stitching setting the trim off nicely, all making the Triton’s cabin feel upmarket. 

All new Tritons come with automatic high-beam, keyless entry, a 9.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system, wireless Apple CarPlay and wired Android Auto, satellite navigation, and a decent sound system.  The GLX models get a 4-speaker version, a 7.0-inch instrument cluster screen, black fabric upholstery, a manually adjustable driver’s seat with power lumbar support, vinyl flooring, air-conditioning, a heavy-duty rear suspension, a floor console box with a lid, a couple of cupholders along with two bottle holders, a compartment for storing your sunglasses, a second-row bench with a centre armrest, one USB-A outlet in the front, one USB-A outlet in the rear, one USB-C outlet in the front, and one USB-C outlet in the rear.  If you opt for the GLX+, you get some more goodies like a locking rear differential (great for the slippery access ways), side steps, front fog lights, rear privacy glass, rear AEB, a surround-view camera, DAB digital radio, and black fabric upholstery with silver stitching.

Your blue GLS Triton rides really nicely, totally composed and quick to respond to any changes in direction.  Equipped with the standard-duty rear suspension, the ride is supple.  You near the building site, selecting 4WD via the smooth Super Select 4WD II system.  The main road has been left half a kilometre back in the distance, and the gravel side road quickly turns to a rugged, bumpy trail that heads up the steep hillside’s flank, up to where the building site perches on top of levelled earthworks.  The new Triton gets down to the task of confidently traversing this climb, through ruts and over some dry rocky faces, flicking billows of dust behind you as you pounce over the levelled verge to pivot and turn sharply alongside Bill, waiting on his foldout chair and smoking a roll-up. 

“Gudday, mate. I wondered where you got to…  Sheez, you didn’t half blaze up the hillside. There’s dust for miles!”  He runs his gaze over your Triton – and did you detect a look of envy in there?

The 18-inch alloys are shod with decent off-road terrain tyres, necessary for excursions like this.  You lift the 60 kg generator into the back of the Triton double cab, with a thump being heard as it hits the tub liner, already fixed in the tray and ready to take any solid gear like this friendly piece of work equipment that the business purchased a long while back.  Quickly tying it down in place, you then turn to shake Bill’s hand and pass him a cold beer you snagged from out of the esky. 

“Yep, there’s lots to like about these new Tritons, Bill.  Your Ranger would have its hands full coming up here, eh?”

He laughs and acknowledges the nice styling of the new Mitsi ute, commenting on how good the new headlights looked as they came up peering over the rise.  “It looks better than mine; that’s for sure!”, and he puffs another long, slow draw on his cigarette.

Inside the 2024 Mitsubishi Triton.

The GLS model does look particularly nice, featuring things like heated, power-adjustable exterior mirrors, LED headlights, fog lights, side turn lights, and even taillights, as well as the dual-zone climate control, terrain control and hill descent control, an electrochromic interior rear-view mirror, keyless start and a wireless phone charger, in case you’ve spent the day listening too long to sales pitches.  A $1500 GLS leather option brings nice natural leather upholstery into the mix, plus some heated front seats and a power driver’s seat for even more comfort, albeit the heated bit not being much use on a day like this one.

“I reckon, you’d be more into the brand new GSR model of the Triton, Bill,” you add as you make your way back around to the cool cockpit of the Triton cab, the blue exterior now covered with a fine layer of pale brown dust.  “It’s got the black-finished 18-inch alloy wheels, a body-coloured grille, a sports bar and roof rails, black leather upholstery with orange stitching, and some cool dark Titanium interior accents…  See ya Wednesday, Bill.”

“Yeah mate! Maybe I should take a geezer at a Triton next week,” Another puff billows up as you smile and wave goodbye.

The new Triton utes are more powerful, more efficient, more technologically advanced, safer, stronger, larger, and even more comfortable than before.  The increased towing capacity (3500 kg) and off-road ability will come in handy for towing the digger up to Bill on Wednesday afternoon.  It even comes with trailer sway control.  The 2024 Tritons have a redesigned ladder chassis for superior handling and for accommodating a larger tray, as well as for providing some new powertrain options further down the track. 

There were six variants to choose between, all of them boasting the new bi-turbo diesel 4-cylinder engine, and all equipped with the slick six-speed automatic transmission.  Five of them were dual-cab utes, like this one, and all, bar one, featured 4WD.  There is definitely no shortage of power, the new 2.4-litre four-cylinder diesel engine making short work of any tough tasks.  Mitsubishi have given the engine design a twin-turbo layout: one small turbo unit for fast response at low revs, and a larger one for greater top-end grunt.  A peak power of 150 kW can be had at 3500 rpm, and the maximum of 470 Nm of torque is all muscle and on song from 1500 to 2750 rpm.  All of the 4WD Mitsubishi Triton models use are said to return around 7.7 litres/100 km on a combined cycle, except for the GLX 4×2 dual-cab ute, which uses a bit less.  They all feature an automatic stop/start system. 

A six-speed manual gearbox will be offered on some other variants further down the track.  GLX and GLX+ models offer an Easy Select 4WD system with selectable low- and high-range gearing as you need them.  The GLX+ also features the locking rear differential.  GLS and GSR models get the Super Select 4WD II system, which also features a full-time four-wheel drive mode for use on the tarmac.  These models also feature the terrain control and hill descent control – hence the light work the blue ute made coming up to Bill on the building site.

The 2024 Mitsubishi Triton is as solid as Uluru, boasting all the right safety gear to back it up.  Mitsubishi claims a segment-first inclusion of front cross-traffic alert and driver monitoring systems, while this is also the first generation of Mitsubishi Triton to feature a centre airbag and reverse autonomous emergency braking, which has pedestrian and cyclist detection plus a junction assist feature.  Other safety kit includes things like autonomous emergency braking (AEB), pedestrian detection, cyclist detection, junction assist, adaptive cruise control, blind-spot monitoring, emergency lane-keeping and lane assist, lane-keep assist, rear cross-traffic alert, multi-collision braking systems, driver attention monitoring, a speed limiter, trailer stability assist, heaps of airbags, a reversing camera, front and rear parking sensors, and a tyre pressure monitoring system.  The GLX+ and above get a surround-view camera and the rear AEB system.

Brand new 2024 Mitsubishi Tritons are backed by a 10-year/200,000 km – whatever comes first – warranty.  And if you service the ute through Mitsubishi dealerships, there is 10 years of capped-price servicing.
