Mitsubishi Triton 2024: Australian specifications and launch timing confirmed


Australia-specific details on Mitsubishi’s new-generation ute reveal an increase in power, better towing and improved technology

This is the all-new sixth-generation Mitsubishi Triton and in terms of specification, it’s a big jump over its predecessor with more power, better technologies and now a 3500kg towing capacity.

We’ve already been shown images of Mitsubishi’s new ute, but now have more information about the brand’s strongest seller and its Australian launch details.

The biggest news is that the Triton will be fitted with a new and improved 2.4-litre twin-turbo-diesel producing 150kW of power and 470Nm of torque. These are welcome increases over the outgoing model’s 133kW and 430Nm.

The engine, codenamed 4N16, has a second turbocharger (the current 2.4-litre has just one). It works in a twin-stage manner to help aid both low-end response and top-end power.

Mitsubishi says both 4×2 and 4×4 variants will be available at launch, with both setups to use an updated six-speed automatic transmission. A six-speed manual will be available on some variants at a later stage.

To compare against the current fifth-generation Triton, the new ute measures 5320mm long (up 15mm) , 1865mm wide (up 50mm) and with a 3130mm wheelbase (up 130mm). The rear tray is now 35mm longer, now offering 1555mm.

Maximum towing capacity has improved by a sizable 400kg to offer 3500kg across the range. This new rating means it aligns with the segment leading Ford Ranger and Toyota Hilux.

Mitsubishi Australia has confirmed the sixth-generation Triton will commence production in December 2023, arriving in Australian dealerships from February 2024.

Local Australian pricing will be confirmed at a later stage closer to launch.

What will the Triton line-up look like locally?

The new Mitsubishi Triton range will include both double cab and club cab body styles, and will use the variant names GLX, GLX+, GLS and GSR. Cab-chassis variants will be added at a later stage.

Standard equipment includes a new 9.0-inch infotainment touchscreen and 7.0-inch instrument cluster screen. Wireless Apple CarPlay (and likely wired Android Auto) is also standard, along with Bluetooth functionality.

The new Triton will have Mitsubishi’s conditional 10 year/200,000km warranty, along with 10 years of capped price servicing. The full 10 year warranty applies if the vehicle is serviced at Mitsubishi dealers, otherwise it expires after five years.

Standard safety features include driver monitoring, rear AEB and forward collision mitigation with pedestrian and cyclist detection.

A front-centre airbag is standard for the very first time in a Triton ute, following the lead of rivals Ford Ranger and Isuzu D-Max.

In 2022 sales figures, the Triton (in 4×4 guise) was Australia’s third best-selling ute behind only the Toyota HiLux and Ford Ranger.
