This is the Mitsubishi Triton VGT Euro, which is specially ordered by Mitsubishi Motors Malaysia from Thailand and is limited to just 180 units. Its claim to fame is the first pick-up truck in Malaysia to come with a powered sunroof, although there are other unique bits as well.
Sunroof apart, the Triton VGT Euro comes with a powered slide and vent auto down rear window (that’s the glass panel behind the rear seats), new front bumper extender with LED daytime running lights, short cargo bed with sports roll bar, colour-keyed rear step bumper, tail lamp garnish and door handle protectors.
Short cargo bed? We called MMM up and yes, the Euro’s cargo bed measures 1,325 mm, which is shorter than the regular truck‘s 1,505 mm. This is the length of the orginal Triton bed, before it underwent a facelift here in 2009. It never went out of production, because some markets liked it short. Less space, but I’ve always thought that the short deck suited the Triton’s overall design better.
Inside, there’s an audio player with Bluetooth and new leather seats. Priced at RM 110,998 on-the-road with insurance, the Triton VGT Euro is available in three colors – White Solid, Black Mica and Red Solid. Read our review of the Triton VGT here.
