2022 Mitsubishi Triton Phantom Plus Edition teased ahead of imminent Malaysian launch – ROI open

Mitsubishi Motors Malaysia (MMM) has teased a new variant of the Triton on its social media channels. Called the Phantom Plus Edition, the company says the new offering is for those who “crave for something extra?”

Just how “extra” is it? Hard to tell as the model is heavily censored in the teaser image, although we should expect quite a few changes to the exterior and interior of the double cab pick-up truck, like we’ve seen on previous special Tritons like the Knight. On a related note, the previous generation of the Triton was also offered as the limited edition Phantom Edition.

To go along with the teaser, there’s a link to a page where interested parties can register their interest. We didn’t find any details about the Triton Phantom Plus Edition on the website aside from the company telling us that this will be “a beast different from the rest.”

Currently, the range-topping variant of the Triton is the Athlete, which is priced at RM146,600 on-the-road without insurance. It comes with a 2.4 litre turbodiesel engine that pumps out 181 PS at 3,500 rpm and 430 Nm of torque at 2,500 rpm, with drive sent to all wheels via a six-speed automatic transmission and four-wheel drive system – the latter comes with several modes selectable via the Super Select 4WD-II control dial.

Notable items that are part of the Athlete’s kit list include bi-LED projector headlamps, LED DRLs, 18-inch gloss black alloy wheels, keyless entry and engine start, a touchscreen infotainment with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay support, automatic air-conditioning, paddle shifters, cruise control, leatherette upholstery, AEB, a blind spot monitor, Lane Change Assist, rear cross traffic alert and automatic high beam. Just how much the Phantom Plus Edition improves upon the Athlete, we’ll have to wait till its launch.

    I Mitsubishi Malaysia would release a automatic Triton variant that comes with 6 airbags, leather upholstery, 360 camers and is priced around RM110k, but then again I can only dream. The Triton Standard A/T VGT is just too barebones, what with only 2 airbags, and no reverse cameras.
