Mitsubishi increases Triton towing capacity to three tonnes

Mitsubishi’s 4WD Triton truck has just been upgraded to a three tonne braked towing capacity across the range.

Improvements to the Triton range include a strengthened chassis to facilitate the new tow weight and a new high-efficiency air filter with pre-filter to improve cabin air quality on dusty roads.

“Triton’s new braked tow rating beats the segment leader by 20%,” said MMNZ head of sales and marketing strategy Daniel Cook. “That is a significant margin and, stacked with safety features that gain a four-star ANCAP rating, Triton is fast becoming the best spec’ed, best value 4WD ute in the NZ market.”

To improve ride, the mid-range 4WD GLX double cab gains the premium GLS Sport suspension package and a wider alloy wheel set with 245/70 R16 tyres. To showcase the new wheels, body colour guards give the GLX a high-end appearance.

“4WD GLX has been a very popular model for us,” said Mr Cook. “It has received a lot of interest and success in the fleet market where customers are looking for a value-priced ute with full safety specifications. Large organisations that work in rural areas such as PGG Wrightson and the NZ Fire Service have rigorously tested 4WD utes for their fleets and all have agreed Triton is the best of the bunch.”

Adding value beyond the specifications, Mitsubishi Motors’ 5/10 Diamond Advantage New Car Warranty leads the industry said Mr Cook. “It provides ten-years cover for the drive train and five years for the whole vehicle — that is two years more support than any of our competitors and we also throw in five years roadside assist. No other NZ distributor is prepared to back their product as strongly.”
