Two new variants of the Mitsubishi Triton pick-up truck wil be launched by Mitsubishi Motors Malaysia sometime in June 2008. Complementing the existing 2.5 litre 4X4 Triton double cab manual and automatic versions will be a 4X2 version of the 2.5 litre double cab model with manual transmission, and a 3.2 litre 4X4 double cab model with an automatic transmission.
The 2.5 litre 4X2 Mitsubishi Triton is estimated to retail at approximately RM60,000, while the 3.2 litre 4X4 automatic has an indicative price of about RM100,000. The exisitng Mitsubishi Triton 2.5 litre 4X4 goes for RM91,782.00 OTR with insurance for the automatic model, and RM86,782.00 for the manual model.
The 3.2 litre engine specifications have not been announced at the moment, but we can expect it to be similiar to the engine specifications of the 3.2 litre turbodiesel Triton in other countries. The inline-4 turbodiesel engine produces 158 horsepower at 3,800rpm, and 347Nm of torque from 2,000rpm.
