We should not complain that Mitsubishi has not been too experimental with new Triton’s exterior. A lot of vehicle makers tend to go wrong by changing a perfectly working formula. The Triton has not changed much and this is great because Mitsubishi has had a winning formula with past double cab bakkies and there is no reason to make this one look too different from its predecessors.

Looking at the Mitsubishi triton’s rear, the car comes built with electronically adjustable exterior mirrors that come with a fold away function which is handy when you are parking in tight spaces or you just need to fold your mirrors for whatever reason.

While the wheels look different from previous models, the car comes with the standard 17 inch alloy wheels similar to most cars of the same size. In terms of colour you will be interested to know that a few new colours have been added to the new Triton range.

According to the official details put out about the car, the Triton for sale comes in; the classic solid white colour, pearl white, sterling silver metallic for the slightly more daring and titanium grey metallic for the more classy car drivers.

One difference you will certainly notice in the new Mitsubishi Triton’s exterior is the addition of a rear step bumper. For anyone who does not know too much about cars these bumpers are added for extra protection in cases where impact occurs. The bumpers act as a cushion reducing the damage the car takes on impact. This is a welcome addition to the Mitsubishi Triton as it makes the car more durable.

Safety Features

As highlighted previously, child safety has been made a priority in the Triton. However, the emphasis on safety did not stop there. The Triton comes fitted with the all new reinforced impact safety evolution body structure. With this structure the vehicle has been made to be more resilient to impact through the use of high tensile steel in building the car’s exterior. This tensile strength makes the car stronger and more capable of withstanding high levels of impact.

These technological features include, ABS, EBS (Electronic Brake force distribution and active stability and traction control. Collectively these features help the driver stay on the road, anticipate impacts and travel in a safer way.

Performance of the new Mitsubishi Triton

From a performance perspective you will certainly not be disappointed with the Triton’s sheer power output and efficiency. The Triton comes with 4 driving options, depending on the terrain you are travelling in. These driving options are; the 2 wheel high range drive option.

This option has been added to make your driving experience quieter and more fuel efficient, the 4 wheel high range option. This option helps your vehicle get more grip on the road in slippery conditions, but is ideally for slower speeds, the 4 wheel high range CD locked option. This option will help improve your vehicle’s traction off road and on snow terrain.

Fortunately you will not have to use this driving option too much in South Africa, unless of course you wish to drive your vehicle off road. The fourth driving option is the 4 wheel low range that is CD locked. This option will give you greater power for those uphill off road drives.
