Video road report - Mitsubishi Triton GLS

We video test the brand-new Mitsubishi Triton GLS.

The latest Mitsubishi Triton is new from the wheels up, including extensive use of hot pressed high tensile steel for a lighter but more rigid body.

In terms of its ride and handling, the new model is quite carlike, and we were very impressed by its taut roadholding and comfortable ride

This latest Triton also gets a new 2.4-litre intercooled turbo-diesel engine and new gearboxes to match its new bodywork.

It’s packed with features, with all models coming in with Bluetooth hands-free phone connection and a music system, with voice activation and steering wheel controls, plus cruise control, and a  6-inch touch screen while double cab versions also get a reversing camera..

All models also get electronic stability systems, including a trailer stability system, and built to 5-star ANCAP standard, with seven airbags on the double cab.

Towing capacity is 3,100kg, and total payload including trailer eclipses all the opposition because of its lighter weight.

The totally new interior is cheery and car-like, while total leg space, front and rear, is claimed to be best in class.

The GLS versions get the Pajero Super Select4-II drivetrain, with a separate and locking centre differential.

There are especially comfy seats, totally redesigned, in the back of the Double Cab as well as in front, while access to the back is also improved.

In summary, key features are the car-like ride and handling, the manoeuvrability, the very willing engines, and  the excellent gearboxes. Pricing for the range starts from $34,790 + ORC and with Mitsubishi’s 10 year Diamond advantage warranty, a good Ute for fleets.
