Australian pricing and specifications for the 2024 Mitsubishi Triton have been announced ahead of its entry into Australian showrooms in February 2024. Revealed in late July, the new-generation Triton will be priced from $43,690 plus on-road costs in Australia for the entry-level GLX 4×4 dual cab, which is an increase of $3,250. Mitsubishi will initially only sell six core variants, all with a 150kW twin-turbocharged diesel engine and a six-speed automatic transmission, though manual and other variants are due later.

“New-Gen Triton presents another step-change for the Mitsubishi Motors product portfolio,” said MMAL CEO, Shaun Westcott.

“The New-Gen Mitsubishi Triton takes the Triton’s essence – reliability, capability, dependability – and significantly enhances them, while adding latest-generation safety technologies, more power and torque, more space, more load carrying capacity and a truly distinctive style.

All 2024 Mitsubishi Triton models will use a new 150kW/470Nm 2.4-litre twin-turbocharged diesel engine, which is a nice improvement on the current model’s 133kW/430Nm 2.4-litre single-turbo diesel engine. At launch, all models will use a six-speed automatic transmission, while a six-speed manual will also come at some stage for some models in the range. All models now have start-stop functionality and fuel consumption ranges from a claimed 7.5L/100km for the GLX 4×2 to 7.7L/100km for all other models.

All new-generation Triton models have received Australia and New Zealand-specific suspension tuning, which was conducted at the Lang Lang proving ground in Victoria. All models can now tow a 3,500kg braked trailer, up from 3,100kg for the current model.

Compared with the current shape Triton, the new model has received a big increase in standard equipment, including a larger 9.0-inch touchscreen with wireless Apple CarPlay, a digital instrument cluster and a reversing camera. Safety equipment has seen a massive increase too, with eight airbags (including front centre and driver’s knee units) now standard across the range, as well as lane keeping assistance, blind-spot monitoring, front and rear-cross traffic alerts, front and rear parking sensors and auto high beam.

For now, Mitsubishi is only offering four models in the Triton range: the base GLX, mid-spec GLX+ and GLS and the top-spec GSR. The GLX+ is available in either dual cab or club cab bodystyles, while the rest of the range is solely available in dual cab form. Like manual variants, cab chassis bodystyles will be added to the range after its launch, suggesting that the entry price will fall.
