Mitsubishi Motors Malaysia (MMM) has introduced a new variant for the Triton line-up – the Triton VGT AT GL – which is priced at RM103,800 on-the-road without insurance. That makes the it the most affordable Triton VGT variant you can buy today, being positioned beneath the range-topping VGT Adventure X (RM130,900), VGT Adventure (RM123,130) and VGT AT/MT (RM114,400 and RM107,600).

As with all Triton VGT variants, this new one is powered by 2.4 litre MIVEC turbodiesel engine with 181 PS at 3,500 rpm and 430 Nm of torque at 2,500 rpm. In this instance, the engine is paired with Mitsubishi’s Easy Select 4WD system and a five-speed automatic transmission.

The VGT AT GL is based on the VGT AT, and comes equipped with a dark chrome radiator grille, 16-inch alloy wheels, automatic climate control and fabric seats. Even so, several parts of the equipment list have been revised to reflect the new variant’s lower price point.

For starters, there are halogen reflector headlights instead of bi-xenon units, while LED daytime running lights, front fog lamps and side mirror indicators have been removed. Keyless entry is also omitted here, and the head unit is now a double-DIN system without a touchscreen. The speaker count is also down to four from the six that was found in the VGT AT.

Unchanged here is the safety kit, which continues to feature two airbags (front driver and passenger), ABS, EBD, brake assist, Active Stability Control, traction control, Hill-Start Assist, Trailer Stability Assist, reverse sensor and rear Isofix child seat anchors.

The price mentioned above also includes a five-year/200,000 km warranty, making the Triton VGT the only pick-up truck to boast such a warranty offer (previously three-year/100,000 km) since April 2017. To get up close with the new variant, visit MMM roadshows at Aeon Tebrau City, Johor from September 19 to 24, or Mid Valley Megamall from September 27 to October 1.
