Mitsubishi Australia is jumping onto the special edition ute bandwagon, announcing the release of the new Triton GLX+ double cab. It, like the others, brings added equipment and boosted value to the tradies’ favourite.
Based on the new Triton GLX dual cab, the GLX+ comes with 16-inch alloy wheels (replacing standard steel items), and a 6.1-inch LCD touch-screen interface paired with a rear-view camera. A rear step bumper bar is also added, above the regular GLX.
Like the regular models, the GLX+ uses the company’s latest 2.4-litre MIVEC turbo-diesel four-cylinder engine. It produces 133kW and 430Nm, offering an average fuel consumption of 7.6L/100km for the auto and 7.2L/100km for the manual.
With these specs the Triton sits in the market with about average power and torque, and slightly better than average fuel economy. The Triton uses a five-speed auto while some modern rivals adopt a more efficient six-, seven-, or even eight-speed auto.
Standard features for the GLX+ include halogen headlights, a black grille, hill-start assist, trailer stability assist, side steps, Bluetooth, cruise control, and an Easy Select four-wheel drive system with low range. All Triton GLX models offer a braked towing capacity of 3100kg, and a payload capacity of 970kg.
The special edition will be on sale for a limited time only. Starting prices are as below (excludes on-road costs):
2016 Mitsubishi Triton GLX+ 4×4 double cab 6spd manual – $36,990
2016 Mitsubishi Triton GLX+ 4×4 double cab 5spd auto- $39,490
