Bakkie Buffs Rate The Mitsubishi Triton – Here’s Why

Mitsubishi Triton

The Mitsubishi Triton bakkie

The popularity of cars, and especially bakkies, is often driven by herd behaviour. “He drives one, and she, and they, so I had better drive one as well.” Some say a bakkie is a bakkie, but they are wrong. Those who truly know bakkies, and know what is important in a top-range one, rate the Mitsubishi Triton very highly indeed. Why? Let’s look at a couple of standout attributes.

The Blend Of Stylish And Practical Design

The Triton looks like it should be streaked with mud, even brand new on the showroom floor. The Dynamic Shield design gives it a robust, bundu-ready appearance. But it is not just the looks – the huge 18-inch wheels and high mounted headlamps and fog lights immediately suggest serious off-road capability.

Yet the Triton is a premium twin cab and needs to take you on- or off-road in comfort. Features not found, or optional extras on other bakkies, come standard with the Triton. These include tilt and telescopic adjustable steering column with a multi-function leather steering wheel that has audio and cruise control, voice control Bluetooth, touchscreen infotainment, dual-zone aircon, electric windows, USB and accessory plugs, leather seats, chromatic rearview mirror and electrically adjustable driver seat.

As Safe As You Can Make A Bakkie

Not all South African drivers always drive safely, to put it mildly. Vehicle safety, therefore, rates as one of the most important areas drivers consider. Consider the safety features of the Triton.

The whole range comes with RISE – Reinforced Impact Safety Evolution, seven airbags, side-impact bars, ISOFIX for child seats, active stability and traction control, ABS and EBD, brake assist, hill-start assist, DRL, auto door lock, rear camera, keyless operating and high brake light on the tailgate.

A Choice Of 4×2 And 4×4 Models

The Mitsubishi Triton double cab comes in both manual and 6 speed auto for both 4×2 and 4×4 versions, but there is more. You know that neighbour who recently bought a bakkie that looks like it was used in the last Mad Max movie? You can now cruise past in your new Triton Xtreme 4×4 Auto and give him a friendly smile…

Power, Torque And Great Mileage

All Mitsubishi Triton models come with the exceptional 2.4-litre turbo-diesel with common rail direct injection. The low compression offers very low fuel consumption without sacrificing either power or torque – 133kW at 3500rpm and 430Nm at 2500rpm.

Peace Of Mind

You will get a 3 year/100 000km manufacturer’s warranty, unlimited mileage roadside assistance for five years and a 5 year/90 000km service plan. You can enjoy driving your Triton and not worry about a thing.
