  • 5 years ago I was in the market for a dual cab ute and for my price range it came down to a year old Hilux SR5 or year old Triton GLX-R. I was after an Automatic and the Triton’s 5 speed felt a lot more intuitive than the 4 speed Hilux box. The Triton came with a longer.

    More Power, Load-Space And Safety Launching the Triton ute range, Mitsubishi has thrown down the gauntlet to segment rivals by.

    Interesting fact! The Mitsubishi Group was established in Japan in 1870. And since then she has never changed her logo. Three well-known rhombuses symbolize three diamonds, "three whales", on which the whole concept of the concern rests: honesty, responsibility and readiness for cooperation.

    At first glance, the new Mitsubishi Triton appears largely unchanged, but dig deeper and you'll find that Mitsubishi have addressed any shortcomings and .

    Front seating is improved over the previous model. To also mention my car had been taken to Waurnponds branch last week where Sean was involved and helpfully tried to keep me in the loop, but to find know faults. Last visit number 7 I believe, the car was kept for one week with still no answers. Door cards unfortunately remain all plastic, and its hard to find a soft place to rest the right elbow, but at least it makes for easy cleaning. Is this a solution or another gimmick?

    Mitsubishi MN Triton GLX-R Automatic Road Test Review

    Protect yourself against fraud. Your IP address will be logged. Read about our Security Policy and Privacy Policy. But order the automatic and you'll get a detuned version of the new 2. The old four-speed automatic has been replaced with a five-speed and stability and traction control now ensure that the Triton is safer than ever. Tradies will appreciate the substantially larger ute tray, that has replaced the more petite, but less user friendly tray found on the ML.

    Space, and lots of it. The MN Triton offers class leading interior space especially in the back seat , and it now has a ute tray to match. The Triton can spend the week hauling loads and the weekend hauling families. Bluetooth connectivity is standard. You could bank the considerable change. In combination with the manual gearbox the 2. However, there is a catch for those preferring an automatic gearbox.

    Mitsubishi has chosen to replace the old four-speed auto with an electronically controlled five-speed transmission in the GLX-R; "a good thing" it would be fair to presume. Unfortunately however this particular five-speed auto isn't able to deal with the 2. Mitsubishi's solution has been to de-tune the 2. Super Select allows all-wheel-drive to be selected for added safety on hard surfaces and in regular around town driving. In MN guise the Triton has lost none of its on-road dynamic ability.

    The steering wheel is smaller and suites a Lancer more than it does a 4WD ute, but the MN remains a comfortable highway tourer, for both passengers and driver. The most 'car-like' of all the dual-cab utes, the MN Triton really is an easy 'truck' to drive. Our only issue at cruise speed was with the cruise control, which could be heard - and felt -constantly every few seconds varying the throttle. Unfortunately the Nm version of the 2.

    Weighing close to two tonnes, the Triton is no lightweight and the handicapped little diesel struggles off the mark. Once on boost, things improve, but it's never close to performing like the more powerful manual. Mitsubishi has tuned the five-speed auto to work harder to cover the torque deficit, but the results are mixed.

    Most disconcerting is that each downchange is followed by an off-boost pause, which makes progress in these situations painful. Under load the 2. Of course the best place to test a 4x4 is off-road, and we took the Triton up past Dargo and onto the challenging terrain in the ranges around the old mining town of Grant. Our issues with the Triton's on-road performance disappeared once low range was selected. There is little to complain about when the going gets tough. The Triton climbed steep rutted mountain trails, straddled berms and carefully picked its way down shaley slopes with surprising ease.

    Our test car was equipped with the optional rear diff-lock, but we left that off for the greater part of the drive and relied on the traction control to keep the wheels turning. At higher speeds off-road - trying to make up a bit of time across the high-country spurs - the Triton's ordinary stock suspension reveals a few shortcomings. Where a Hilux absorbs bumps, the Triton tends to bounce from one to the next.

    Corrugations can also find it out. You need to either drop tyre pressures and slow down or fit aftermarket suspension. The Triton remains the class-leader for rear-seat accommodation, and, aside from some complaints about uncomfortable headrests, our adult passengers were impressed with the amount of room available.

    Families with young children will find the Triton dual-cab range to be quite accommodating. Front seating is improved over the previous model. With height and rake adjustment now a feature, the front seats are a vast improvement over the previous model's flat and uncomfortable offerings. There is still room for improvement there though. Another welcome improvement is the addition of an armrest between the front seats. Triton drivers now finally have a place to rest their left elbow.
