Mitsubishi Triton Quest facelift launched in Malaysia – low rider 4×2 workhorse gets Dynamic Shield, RM80k

Mitsubishi Triton Quest facelift launched in Malaysia – low rider 4×2 workhorse gets Dynamic Shield, RM80k

When Mitsubishi Motors Malaysia (MMM) launched the facelifted Triton range early this year, the workhorse Triton Quest was not included. Now, MMM is ready, and the workhorse Triton Quest is available in Malaysia with the Dynamic Shield face and revised specs.

Priced at RM79,890 on the road without insurance, the Triton Quest “comes with a stylish design with a ‘sedan’ outlook” according to MMM, and it’s the most affordable pick-up truck in the market. The factory warranty is five years or 100,000 km, whichever comes first.

The Triton Quest is of course not powered by the 2.4 litre MIVEC turbodiesel engine that’s now standard across the Triton range. Instead, under the hood lies a 2.5 litre commonrail turbodiesel with 110 PS and 200 Nm of torque at 2,000 rpm. Not a VGT motor, this is basic, as is expected for the workhorse category. Also retained are the five-speed manual gearbox and 4×2 rear-wheel-drive. MMM also highlights the best in class turning radius of 5.7 metres (5.9m for 4WD Tritons).

As before, the Triton Quest is a low rider truck. The bed, which is easier to access due to the low load lip, is claimed to be the largest in the low rider category. Inclusive of passengers, total load capacity is 970 kg.

Listed in the spec sheet is the Electronic Time and Alarm Control System (ETACS), which comes with a lane change turn signals, power window timer, headlamp auto off, open door alarm, auto door relock system, auto speed adjustable wipers and a 15-second interior light delay after switching off the car.

Also, there’s a multi-info display with readouts for range, average fuel consumption and service reminders. The head unit is a 2-DIN non-touchscreen unit with Bluetooth. Basic stuff perhaps, but the Triton Quest is a basic workhorse. As for safety kit, there’s dual airbags, and ABS with EBD. Reverse sensors, too. Choose from any exterior colour, as long as it’s pearl white.

At the Quest launch, MMM also announced a couple of product enhancements for the rest of the Triton range. The range topping Triton Adventure X now gets an all round monitor for bird’s eye view parking, a dashcam, side body stickers, and solar/security tint. One rung down is the Triton AT Premium, which now gets the dashcam, leather seats and a seven-inch touchscreen head unit with Apple Carplay and Android Auto.

      Pity that Proton cut ties with Mitsubishi. If Proton still partners with Mitsubishi, this game changing pick-up truck will be the next gen Proton Arena

    Good one PT, reminds of Henry Ford’s famous quote.

      Slap on those deep-dish 3 pieces super-alloy wheels with fat tires will definitely transforms into eye candy low-riders
