While it has been confirmed as early as April of last year that the Mitsubishi Triton will be brought and sold in the Philippines, it has not exactly been firmly committed by the Japanese company that the near favorite American truck will indeed come to Manila.

Now, however, all doubts have been erased as the official launch of the Triton will definitely be held on January 26, 2024 (the Friday after this date of posting) at the Bridgetown destination Estate in Quezon City.

Initially pegged to start selling at about P1.34 million pesos, the GTriton should be a stiff competition for the more popular pick-up trucks like the Toyota Hilux and the Nissan Navara.

Of course we also know that the Triton is also called the Strada in other territories but that is beside the point. The mere fact that it was announced a full year before actually coming to the Philippines by no less than Mitsubishi Philippines President Takeshi Hara speaks a lot about how large the car company is putting itys stake on this model.

The all-new Triton features the latest iteration of Mitsubishi’s Dynamic Shield front fascia design that is highlighted by its split LED headlight and L-shaped DRLs. Rear part is highlighted by its T-shaped tail lights which complement the squarish design of the all-new Triton. Very close to the XRT Concept, the all-new Triton features boxy exterior details.

The Triton’s interior is designed using the Horizontal Axis concept which uses horizontally-themed and strong shapes throughout the dash to allow drivers to easily see changes while driving. As per the brand, attention has been given in designing the monitor, meters, switches, selectors, and dials, which all have the optimum level of sensitivity, to allow access while wearing gloves.

The all-new Mitsubishi Triton is powered by the same 4N15 inline-four cylinder turbocharged diesel engine that has been improved to be cleaner yet more powerful than the previous generation. The updated diesel mill of the new Triton now has 200 ps and 470 Nm torque. Almost 20 ps and 40 Nm increase over the current gen Strada in our market.

Available in six-speed automatic transmission or six-speed manual shift-by-wire transmission, the 4WD variants of the Triton are equipped with Mitsubishi’s proprietary Super Select 4WD-II and Easy Select 4WD systems.
