2014 Mitsubishi Triton Thailand 8

After last week’s full unveil, the 2015 Mitsubishi Triton has taken the stage at the ongoing 2014 Thailand International Motor Expo, and we bring you a gallery of the new truck live on the stand.

Boasting handsome looks in an unassuming sort of way, Mitsu’s fifth-generation pick-up plies its wares in the Land of Smiles in Double Cab Plus and Double Cab 4×4 forms. Possible engine-gearbox combos are a 2.4 litre petrol 5MT, 2.4 litre diesel 6MT and 2.4 litre diesel 5AT. A total of nine variants are offered, priced from 791,000 to 1,008,000 baht (RM81,360-RM103,680).

The 2.4 litre turbodiesel MIVEC VGT engine is brand new, featuring an aluminium block and a lower 15.5 compression ratio. It makes 182 PS and 430 Nm of torque, while promising 20% better efficiency. You should hear less of it too, thanks to optimised suspension, sound insulation, absorption and vibration damping.

Closer to home, the 2015 Mitsubishi Triton recently appeared on oto.my, with a RM92,000 estimated starting price listed. A 2.5 litre engine is mentioned, leading us to suppose we won’t get the new motor. But here’s hoping!
