Mitsubishi Triton 4WD Dual Cab Ute 2024 first drive

What is the all new Triton really like

Mitsubishi Triton – Its no secret that Utes are becoming more popular, in fact three of the top ten selling vehicles in 2023 were Utes. 2024 Mitsubishi Triton GLS Front quarterMitsubishi has just launched their all-new Triton Ute.

Better is all aspects the new Triton is sure to shake up the buyer opinions.

With a big and bold frontal grill and bonnet the Triton makes a statement opposite to the model it replaces.

Sitting on a longer and wider chassis with revised suspension, the new Triton is

  • Bigger inside
  • More compliant as well as
  • Quieter and smoother

With more power and torque the Triton now has a bigger payload and will tow 3500kg,

Off road the Triton gets the clever and reliable Super Select 11 4WD system, seven drive modes and a rear diff lock.

One key improvement is the electronic power steering. It transforms the responses to steering inputs.  This is probably the greatest area of improvement.

I spent two days driving the Triton over a wide range of surfaces from motorway driving to some interesting 4WD tracks and came away impressed.

Triton is priced from $43,690 through to $63,840 plus the usual costs
