The new Triton is getting closer to its official unveiling on July 26th, likely with more power and tougher than before
It’s the latest teaser in the lead up to the official unveiling of the new-generation Mitsubishi Triton on Wednesday 26 July 2023.
The Japanese automaker says it has re-designed both the front double-wishbone suspension and the rear leaf suspension, while a “newly developed clean diesel turbo engine has improved environmental performance by significantly reducing friction loss, while achieving higher output”.
The next-gen Mitsubishi Triton is set to not only have a wider track and be larger in overall dimension, but its suspension is set to be revised and updated.
This could mean a more comfortable and better handling ute, along with more articulation built in for when going off road.
What we don’t know so far is the engine details, with its power and torque information not yet shared.
The engine shown among the teaser images appears to be a four-cylinder, which Mitsubishi has confirmed is turbo-diesel in nature.
It’s expected the engine will be a derivative of the current 2.4-litre turbo-diesel, now codenamed 4N16, that will bring increased outputs of around 160kW/500Nm – putting it roughly even with the Toyota Hilux.
The new Triton is expected to go on sale in Australia during 2024 with more information on local models expected to follow soon.
It’s expected that the all-new Triton will launch with a double cab, mega cab (space cab) and, eventually, a single cab bodystyle.
The new Triton is expected to be larger in almost every dimension and could feature a wider track to compete with the Ford Ranger.
We’ve seen a little bit of the Triton already, with the recent XRT concept showing the general shape and proportions of the vehicle.
A body-integrated snorkel, rear sail-plane and a redesigned front end with new LED lights are set to feature.
