Next-gen Mitsubishi Triton Club Cab spotted testing in South Australia


Enough room for you, your mate and two other mates you don’t like. Mitsubishi seems to be committed to the Club Cab with the new-gen Triton

An eagle-eyed Aussie has spotted what appears to be the new-generation Triton in 2+2 Club Cab form, all but confirming the body style will be retained.

Mitsubishi’s XRT Concept, which previews the upcoming Triton, was shown off in the popular dual-cab body style at the recent Bangkok show, however further options have yet to be detailed for the sixth generation that’s expected to launch in 2024.

While the dual cab is a favourite of private buyers, single- and space-cab (which Mitsubishi calls the Club Cab) are largely sought after by tradies due to the added bed length.

Although not offering the comfort and legroom of a dual-cab, the space cab offers drivers the added flexibility of two extra seats in a pinch. 

Mitsubishi currently offers the current Triton’s single and space-cab options in both ute and cab-chassis body styles.

Currently, the Ford Ranger, Toyota Hilux, Nissan Navara, Isuzu D-Max and Mazda BT-50 all offer the space cab body style, but the LDV T60, GWM Ute and the incoming Volkswagen Amarok are dual-cab only.

Triton’s local testing well underway

Mitsubishi has been vocal about the fact the new-generation Triton is being developed on Australian roads so it’s no surprise to see a camouflage model in Adelaide’s south, not far from the headquarters of Mitsubishi Australia.

The model seen here does bear a strong resemblance to previous prototypes seen out on the road. Backgrounding on its registration reveals it as a ‘Black Mitsubishi Utility’.

The next-gen Triton was tested thoroughly in Australia

Mitsubishi Motors Australia declined to comment on if the spotted ute was a legitimate new-generation prototype but added the following:

“As a core, strategic market for Mitsubishi globally, we support MMC in the development and testing of both current and future models in Australia, to ensure our vehicles are optimised to meet tough Australian conditions,” a spokesperson said.

“We appreciate this opportunity to work closely with our Head Office colleagues but can make no further comment at this time.”
