Want a bigger deck? Mitsubishi NZ releases Triton Club Cab

For kiwi ute buyers who require a bigger deck and an increased storage capacity, Mitsubishi has just added two four-seat ‘club cabs’ to its 4WD Triton range. The club cab wellside’s deck now measures a full 300mm longer than its double cab sibling.

Club Cab models made up around 13% of the total 4WD ute market in 2009 and the introduction of the Triton GL Cab Chassis and Wellside models coincides with solid sales of the Triton workhorses.

Triton sales in 2010 have grown 65% over the previous year and the new Club Cabs are expected to provide a further boost claims Mitsubishi head of sales and marketing strategy Daniel Cook.

“Triton is really starting to come into its own,” he said. “We are getting record enquirys and our success in becoming one of only two government ute suppliers speaks volumes for the value and quality of our product. The Club Cabs will add a further option for buyers looking for a proven workhorse that provides the perfect compromise between tray length and seating capacity. The rear seat area also provides useful, secure storage, which isn’t available in single cabs.”

The new seating and tray configurations increases the Triton’s 4WD range to nine variants. All are powered by a 2.5 litre DID common rail diesel engine, which delivers 133kW and 407Nm. The new Club Cab models also receive driver and front passenger airbags, a four-star ANCAP safety rating and are the only models in the market that offer a rear differential lock as standard.
