The Mitsubishi Triton VGT Adventure has had its price revised to RM110,218 with on-the-road (OTR) costs sans insurance – an increase of close to RM2,000. At launch, the same variant retailed for RM108,274 inclusive of OTR costs without insurance. The reason, provided by Mitsubishi Motors Malaysia (MMM), is due to the volatile foreign exchange situation.
While the Triton VGT Adventure suffers from a price hike, MMM has stated that it will maintain “the prices of other models until the first quarter of 2016, as announced.” Despite carrying a heftier price tag, the Mitsubishi Triton VGT Adventure is now available with a complimentary Adventure Sports Bar with every purchase plus a RM2,000 rebate. Alternatively, customers can also opt for a RM3,500 cash rebate and forgo the sports bar.
