Ever since we at paultan.org started doing videos, we have been literally inundated with requests to feature pick-up trucks. We finally bring you our first-ever truck video – the start of many to come, I’m sure – and it’s a walk-around video of the latest hauler to launch in Malaysia: the 2015 Mitsubishi Triton.

The top-rung VGT Adventure is our lab specimen, and doesn’t it look a treat. Perhaps it won’t turn as many heads as its predecessor did when it first hit our roads, but the new Triton cuts a figure that would look equally at home in a concrete jungle or a proper jungle.

Exclusive to the Adventure are HID projector headlamps with LED DRLs, striking 17-inch alloys and chunky tubular side steps. Luxuries which are still rare in trucks feature inside, including shift paddles, cruise control leather seats, auto dual-zone air-con and a 6.1-inch touch-screen with reverse camera and Bluetooth.

Under the bonnet sits a 2.5 litre variable-geometry turbodiesel that develops 178 PS and 400 Nm of torque. It’s an improved version of the previous 178 PS/350 Nm DI-D motor, instead of the new 2.4 litre unit with 182 PS, 430 Nm of torque and 20% better efficiency that Thailand gets. In the Adventure, the engine is mated to a five-speed auto.

Nothing like seeing everything move and come to life before your very eyes. Just hit Play and we’ll take you on an in-depth, inside-and-out tour of the 2015 Mitsubishi Triton. Prefer words? Read our exhaustive launch report. Love numbers? See full equipment and specifications on CarBase.my.
