2019 Mitsubishi Triton Spied
The 2019 Mitsubishi Triton spied testing in Outback South Australia undergoing possible ride and handling calibration.
THE 2019 MITSUBISHI TRITON has been spotted in Outback South Australia undergoing the last bits of testing ahead of a likely release later this year. The Triton spotted locally was potentially here for a local ride and handling, NVH, and steering calibration validation.
Mitsubishi most recently tested Down Under with the Eclipse Cross, to ensure that vehicle would work as well on Australia’s rubbish roads as it does in the heart of Tokyo. Mitsubishi hasn’t said anything about the new Triton, but you can clearly see from the images that it’s got the same ‘Dynamic Shield’ snout as other vehicles in the range, taking on almost identical front-end styling to the recently revised Pajero Sport.
While the photographer who shared the images with our Robert Pepper didn’t get snaps of the inside, we’re expecting there to be tweaks to the interior of the refreshed Triton that’ll, again, borrow from the Pajero Sport’s interior, especially in top-spec versions.
There’s no word on whether there’ll be new engines on offer, remember now that Nissan owns Mitsubishi the development of this Triton will have been a collaborative affair. The Triton is likely to carry on with the 2.4-litre turbo-diesel it shares with the Pajero Sport as well as the eight-speed automatic from that vehicle. The major running gear is expected to be carry over too, but we’re expecting tweaks to the way the rides and handles…just what changes to things like approach and departure angle the new nose and rear will make we don’t know.
