Mitsubishi exec says new Triton will double it’s sales

Triton2015-4xMitsubishi Motors New Zealand is predicting that the first all-new Triton ute in nine years will have a five-star safety rating, and will double its sales tally here.

The Triton and the L200 from which it was derived have been around since 1978, and this is the first full redesign of Triton in nine years.

Mitsubishi’s head of sales Daniel Cook says the new Triton ute has; a bigger tray capacity, a stronger body, a driver’s knee air bag, significantly greater torque than before, requires less frequent servicing, and it offers fuel economy from 7L/100km.

The new Triton is also a class leader in various respects, he says, naming highest figures for torque to weight ratio, lowest for fuel economy, and turning circle, and class leading interior comfort, legroom and ride quality.

Cook predicts that Triton sales will almost double to 2500 units a year, and also says it remains the only ute in New Zealand with a 10-year warranty.

The new range offers ten models, all with the new 2.4l DiD MIVEC engine: (4WD) GLX manual single cab/club cab, GLX/GLS manual/auto double cab: (2WD) GLX manual single cab, GLX-R manual/auto double cab.

Retail prices remain unchanged for this new model:

  • GLX single cab chassis manual $34,790
  • GLXR double cab manual $45,120
  • GLXR double cab auto $47,120
