Mitsubishi Triton 2024: Australian release date and price confirmed for new-generation ute


The new-generation ute from Mitsubishi had taken a big step up in capability and scored a modern interior but it’s also a lot more expensive than before

Mitsubishi has revealed the full specifications for its new-generation Triton dual-cab ute and outlined how much you can expect to pay when it goes on sale in February 2024.

Priced from $43,690 (before on-roads) in 4×2 GLX dual-cab automatic guise, the entry price of the Triton is $3250 more than the equivalent outgoing model, with increases of up to $7600 seen on the GLS grade.

Similar increases have been seen in the recent generation update to the Ford Ranger and Volkswagen Amarok utes, with Mitsubishi keen to point out the newer and larger Triton is significantly enhanced with key upgrades including a more powerful bi-turbo engine, modern interior and an enhanced 3.5-tonne towing capacity.

Other factors such as new component and supplier sources, along with increased costs across the supply chain were also blamed for the rising cost of producing, and finally delivering, the new Triton.

Cab-chassis, manual options to follow after launch

The Triton will launch exclusively in dual-cab and club cab, both in the popular pick-up body style with a six-speed automatic transmission. Cab-chassis and a six-speed manual option will be available later on select grades.

So far, the GLX, GLX+, GLS and GSR have been confirmed, with only the former available in both 4×2 and 4×4 while the rest send drive to all four wheels.

As expected, the Triton has grown significantly in size, with the wheelbase some 130mm longer at 3130mm, but also 50mm wider (1865mm), 15mm taller (5320mm) and has an extra 35mm in the 1555mm tray. Mitsubishi also boasts an additional 49mm in cabin shoulder room.

Twin-turbo powertrain to bring 3.5-tonne towing

In February, all models on sale will use Mitsubishi’s newly developed 2.4-litre bi-turbo-diesel engine, producing 150kW of power at 3500rpm and 470Nm of torque between 1500rpm and 2750rpm – reflecting a 17kW/40Nm increase over the previous model.

In terms of efficiency, all dual- and club-cab models announced today carry a combined fuel-efficiency rating of 7.7L/100km except for the GLX 4×2, which uses 7.5L/100km

A 3.5-tonne towing capacity will also be standard across dual-cab models, reflecting a 400kg setup over the previous generation.

How safe is the 2024 Mitsubishi Triton?

Although it’s yet to be officially rated by ANCAP, the Triton has taken a notable step up in safety equipment with a front-centre airbag joining the expected list of front, knee and curtain airbags.

Mitsubishi says the Triton also debuts some first-in-segment technology in Australia, including front-cross traffic assist (along with rear) and a driver monitoring system.
