Following its appearance at the recent Kuala Lumpur International Motor Show (KLIMS 18), the refreshed Mitsubishi Triton is currently on display at My Town Shopping Centre from December 7-9. This time, we are allowed inside the pick-up truck, giving us our first look at the Malaysian-spec interior that customers will get when the model is launched in the first quarter of 2019.
The unit you see here wears the Adventure trim (based on the badging) – similar to the one at KLIMS – and features exterior items like slim projector headlamps, 18-inch six twin-spoke alloy wheels with 265/60 profile tyres, chrome side mirror caps and door handles, LED taillights, reverse camera, keyless entry, side steps, as well as front and rear parking sensors.
Meanwhile, the interior equipment list includes a leather-wrapped, multi-function, four-spoke steering wheel; multi-info coloured instrument display; dual-zone climate control with rear ceiling vents; touchscreen infotainment system; leather upholstery; Super Select 4WD II dial; keyless engine start; powered driver’s seat; along with front and rear USB charging ports.
Based on the visible switches and sensors on the pick-up, the Triton in Adventure trim also gets a suite of advanced safety systems like Forward Collision Mitigation, Blind Spot Warning with Lane Change Assist, which should be accompanied by Ultrasonic Misacceleration Mitigation System and Rear Cross Traffic Alert.
Other safety features as mentioned before are seven airbags, electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD), Brake Assist (BA), Active Stability with Traction Control(ASTC), Hill-Start Assist (HSA), Hill Descend Control (HDC) and Trailer Stability Assist (TSA).
MMM has already confirmed that the new Triton will come with the 4N15 2.4 litre MIVEC turbodiesel engine, as well as the new six-speed automatic transmission that replaces the five-speed INVECS II unit.
Order books are now open for the Triton, with prices estimated to be around RM100k to RM140k on-the-road without insurance. The pick-up will next be on display IOI Mall Puchong (December 17-23), Alan Central Mall (January 10-13), IOI City Mall (January 23-27) and other places. The full list of locations can be found on MMM’s official website, here.
