With a swag of premium cabin enhancements and some additional mechanical kit, the Warrior brings the Triton into line with Toyota‘s HiLux SR5. The Mitsubishi undercuts the flash Toyota on price, though: the special-edition Mitsubishi will list at $43,990 with the five-speed manual, and $45,990 for the five-speed automatic.
This one-off run of 300 vehicles will be based on the high-spec Triton GLX-R. The donor car brings a 2.5-litre four-cylinder diesel engine, four-wheel-drive, Bluetooth audio and audio controls on the steering wheel.
The Warrior brings a number of luxuries to the table: black leather seats – electrically-adjustable for the driver – an eight-speaker stereo, and satellite navigation are all thrown in. Outside, you’ll tell the difference through a couple of decals, as well as exclusive 17-inch wheels, a tonneau cover and a nudge bar.
While the motor is half-a-litre down on the Toyota’s 3.0L capacity, we’re confident that the Mitsubishi’s sharper pricing will attract quite a few buyers over the holiday season.
