While Mitsubishi's rivals (Toyota and Ford) launched their latest-generation double-cab bakkies in South Africa early 2016, consumers have had to wait until relatively recently to get their hands on the new Triton. Was it worth waiting for and where does the newcomer slot into the market?
The delay was a long one... after all, even the Fiat Fullback, a clone of the Triton, arrived before this bakkie (its official launch was late January 2017). And the reason? Well, Mitsubishi South Africa wanted to offer the latest engine available to the South African consumer and we think the new 2.4-litre turbodiesel motor is certainly a highlight of the new bakkie.
In this video we take the new Mitsubishi Triton for a test drive on tarmac and gravel roads, we take a detailed look at the interior and tech features, as well as trying out the all-important rear seats. Towing and load carrying figures are also discussed as well as pricing for the top of the range 4x4 Auto model.
