The next-generation Mitsubishi Triton engine will be electric, but exactly what kind of electric is not yet clear. This is because the new Triton should be launched around 2022 – in electric vehicle development far, far in the future.
Current mainstream electric vehicle technologies are hybrid electric (HEV), plug-in hybrid (PHEV) and dedicated plug-in battery-electric (BEV). While on the topic of acronyms, there is of course also ICE (internal combustion engine).
Fresh from showing off at the Bangkok Motor Show, the Mitsubishi Triton Absolute Concept bakkie could go into production in the near future. It certainly looks the part of a more robust, modified and performance-heavy off-roader fully stocked with everything you need.
Much has been said about the new facelifted Mitsubishi Triton since it was revealed back in November 2018. While the Japanese automaker confirmed a number of improvements, local pricing has eluded bakkie fanatics across South Africa. But now, after the official launch, it’s time to reveal what everyone’s been waiting for.
Late last year we covered the launch of the new long-awaited Mitsubishi Triton and now there may be more good news on the horizon. The Japanese automaker has hinted that there is a great opportunity to build an even bigger and better Triton to rival the new Ford Ranger Raptor.
Mitsubishi has done it again with a special edition, sporty Triton Athlete which is based on the international Triton Adventure X-development and the Mitsubishi Triton 4×4 automatic. There is a mixture of old and new inside and out which further adds to the allure.
This top-of-the-range Triton Athlete leaves no stone unturned in terms of design, technology, and performance. It looks incredible with modern, flashy design details including a two-tone, orange and black, body kit which compliments the interior trimmings.
Finally, the long wait is over as the vastly improved and impressive Mitsubishi Triton is coming to South African shores around April 2019. The Japanese automaker claims that the revised bakkie offers more powerful styling, an enhanced four-wheel-drive system, and new safety and driver assistance technologies.
So you love to drive bakkies, but would rather own something that is as reliable as the Toyota Hilux, as exciting as the Ford Ranger and yet still has plenty of luxury features such as the Volkswagen Amarok? Well then, maybe it is time that you took a test drive in a Mitsubishi Triton, because this exciting pickup is more than just a bakkie, it is an exciting addition to any family or fleet and will have you enjoying an adventurous life each and every time you get behind the wheel of this fun to drive vehicle!
