Mitsubishi Triton 2017 Facelift, Engine

The Mitsubishi has marketed the new truck all over the world with different names including Hunter, Sportero Strada, and L200. The Mitsubishi Triton 2017 is different from its older cousins due to a reduction in weight thereby leading to increased engine efficiency. The vehicle is offered with either 17-inch rims or alternately 21-inch wheels for added clearance against both liquid and solid obstacles. In fact, the 21 inch rims are great for fording shallow rivers and streams. The high-quality tires that are a standard feature of the truck are great for both city driving as well as the Australian outback where its performance has given the Triton a highly justified reputation for reliability.

Mitsubishi Triton 2017 – Exterior and Interior Features:

For optimal performance in hot and demanding environments, the Mitsubishi Triton 2017 is equipped with no less than six openings in its chromed front grille so as to allow for better air circulation to ensure the engine does not overheat. Moreover, a snorkel may also be installed in the vehicle so that it would be able to cross water channels. The overall width of the truck has also been increased so as to increase stability at both high speeds and while tackling demanding off-road environments such as snow and mountain regions. Moreover, it also boasts off a bigger and roomier trunk bed correspondingly increasing its haulage capacity.

Many other external features include low mounted and chromed fog lamps for driving in low light and foggy conditions, rear haze lamps and a rear view camera amongst others.

Interior Features:

Based on earlier Mitsubishi models it may be speculated that the vehicle would be available in three different models. I.e GLX, GLS, and Exceed. The changes on all three models might be cosmetic at best and more concerned with external trims and garnishing. Some models may not have retractable mirrors and climate control etc. It is also expected to have more space in its cabin since it’s slightly bigger than older models.

It is widely expected that a 6.1-inch navigation system along with GPS and Bluetooth would be standard on all models. There is also a Google maps, ABS, anti-locking disc brakes along with anti-theft systems. All models of the Mitsubishi Triton 2017 have equipped with HID (High-intensity discharge) HID based LED lamps as an aid to navigating in the dark, in off-road conditions.
