Mitsubishi Triton VGT AT Premium with improved specs – dashcam, leather, Apple Carplay, Android Auto

Mitsubishi Motors Malaysia (MMM) launched the facelifted Triton Quest at Central i-City Mall today, and the company also brought out the rest of the Triton range for the weekend roadshow. Besides the updated workhorse, the range topping Triton Adventure X and the Triton VGT AT Premium – which sits one rung below – are also on display.

Both the Triton Adventure X and Triton VGT AT Premium have improved specs at slightly higher prices. When they were launched in January this year, the Adventure X and VGT AT Premium were priced at RM135,200 and RM118,600 respectively – the new prices are RM137,900 and RM121,000 on the road excluding insurance, which is an increase of RM2,700 and RM2,400, respectively.

Of course, there’s more kit to go along with the new pricing. As shown early last month, the Triton Adventure X gains an all round monitor for bird’s eye view parking, a dashcam, side body stickers, and solar/security tint – a fair bit for the RM2,700 bump.

Today is the first time we’re seeing the Triton VGT AT Premium, and the new features are the dashcam, leather seats and a seven-inch touchscreen head unit with Apple Carplay and Android Auto.

Quest aside, the updated Triton range with the Dynamic Shield face is powered by a 2.4 litre MIVEC turbodiesel with 181 PS and 430 Nm of torque at 2,500 rpm. This engine – which has an aluminium alloy block and variable geometry turbo – is mated to a six-speed automatic transmission, replacing the previous five speeder. The other gearbox in the range is a six-speed manual.

The Adventure X gets a new Super Select 4WD II system. It has 2WD (2H) and 4WD (4H, 4HLc) modes with shift-on-the-fly at up to 100 km/h. When the going gets tough, one can lock the center differential by entering the 4HLc, or the low range 4LLc for serious off-roading. The Easy Select 4WD system on the other variants allows for 2H-4H shift-on-the-fly at up to 100 km/h.

Both Adventure X and VGT AT Premium get the new Off-Road Mode, which has four presets (gravel, mud, sand, rock). Choosing a mode will see the system optimise engine power, transmission and braking to regulate the amount of wheel slip and maximise off-road performance. There’s also hill descent control, which frees the driver to focus on steering during steep descents. The Off-Road Mode and HDC buttons are behind the 4WD rotary knob.

The early 2019 update improved the MMC truck in the safety department. Driver assist features such as Forward Collision Mitigation (FCM), Blind Spot Warning with Lane Change Assist (BSW with LCA), Rear Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA), Ultrasonic Misacceleration Mitigation System (UMS), Auto High Beam (AHB) and seven airbags are now available on the Triton Adventure X.

    The only thing selling from Mitsubishi, even then it is not doing well. This brand will close shop any time.

        Open your eyes big, big and still you can’t see Outlander on the road here. Why is it not selling well?

    The Triton dynamic shield face is the ugliest in the mitsu line up. The other model in the family with similar face are not ugly at all. I wonder why
