The Mitsubishi Triton 2024 - Bigger, Bolder And More Powerful
While Christmas is in December, for Ute fans it's February thanks to the soon-to-be released 2024 Mitsubishi Triton. The Triton range has a well deserved Kiwi fanbase and the latest iteration of the iconic ute is looking to surpass all their expectations. Sporting a bigger, bolder and more aggressive new design, the latest Triton has been upgraded from the ground up. This isn't a case of all bark with no bite - the latest Triton is more powerful, efficient and technologically advanced than its forbearers.
Bigger is Better
“While it matches its predecessor's towing capacity of 3.5 T, it is now able to do so while no longer requiring a triple axle trailer.”
The first thing you'll notice is its stature - the latest Triton range boasts a bigger silhouette than all previous generations. Everything from the wheelbase, tray size and length have increased to offer more space for both passengers and cargo. In fact, the new tray can hold a Euro-size pallet (1200mm x 800mm), further cementing the Triton's reputation as a reliable workhorse. But if that's not enough cargo room for you, the increased wheelbase of 130mm helps in improving the Triton's already stellar reputation for towing. While it matches its predecessor's towing capacity of 3.5 T, it is now able to do so while no longer requiring a triple axle trailer.
Mitsubishi has completely redesigned the chassis frame. This reinforced chassis frame, made with high tensile materials, reduces road noise and vibrations for a comfortable driving experience. The larger size and higher rigidity of the frame enhance stability, handling, and energy absorption. Furthermore, it's resistant to corrosion, ensuring the durability of the latest Triton. Couple this with the upgraded suspension system, and the latest Triton is ready for any challenge you can throw at it.
Power, Power and more Power
Now, let's talk about the heart of the Triton – its engine. Under the hood, you'll find the new Mitsubishi Motors 2.4L 4N16 bi-turbo engine, delivering an impressive 150kW of power and 470Nm of torque. The power of this engine is apparent from the minute you put your foot on the pedal - the twin stage turbo charging delivers a noticeably reduced takeoff lag, providing punchy power with incredible manoeuvrability. The icing on the cake is that not only does this engine bring a whole new level of performance to the Triton range, it's frictionless design actually improves fuel efficacy and reduces CO2 emissions - making the Next Generation Triton Euro6B emission compliant with the inclusions of the engines stop/start and AdBlue Technology. To further the efficiency of Mitsubishi's innovative engine, all models feature a 6 speed automatic transmission that is specifically adapted for the new technology.
Filled With Tech
When it comes to technology, the Triton excels. One technologic feature that many are waiting to hear about is the 4WD system, and the next generation Triton delivers. All 4WD variants of the 2024 Mitsubishi Triton feature the latest iteration of Mitsubishi's highly regarded Super Select II AWD system - providing the Triton with 7 drive modes and four 4WD modes. Add to this the new Active Yaw Control and the latest Triton's 4WD specs offer an incredible level of versatility.

- Forward Collision Mitigation System with Junction Assist
- Rear Automatic Emergency Braking
