Mitsubishi introduces new Triton Knight


MITSUBISHI Motors Malaysia Sdn Bhd (MMM), the official distributor of Mitsubishi vehicles in Malaysia, introduced the new Mitsubishi Triton Knight recently.

Limited to 120 units, the Triton Knight is based on the top-spec Triton Adventure X variant. It is made available only in White Diamond and packs on extra accessories to match its stylish, yet, powerful presence.

Aesthetically, the Triton Knight is accentuated by a grey front bumper garnish and hood protector for a more aggressive stance.

The tougher outlook is further complemented by exclusive Knight body stickers and side window deflectors.

In the cabin, it comes with scuff plates and exclusive red-stitching carpet mats with Knight embroidery.

Like the Triton Adventure X variant, the Triton Knight gets an all-round monitor (ARM), a feature that uses multiple cameras around the vehicle to create a bird’s-eye-view to aid parking and manoeuvring.

For an added peace-of-mind driving, the Triton Knight has a driving video recorder, a feature that captures every moment or incident while on the move.

Finally, it also comes with 7-inch touchscreen audio with Apple carplay and Android ready and sports bar as standard. Priced at RM137,900, it is priced the same as the current Triton Adventure X, but with added free accessories for a limited time only. Some of these accessories are offered by Mitsubishi Motors authorised dealers. It also comes with the best-in-class warranty of five years or 200,000km.

MMM’s current year-end promotions include a loyalty programme, exclusively for Mitsubishi Motors owners. Customers who purchase the selected Triton variants will be entitled to up to RM3,000 cash rebates on top of ongoing promotions.

In addition, any pick-up truck owners who purchase selected Triton variants are also entitled to additional RM2,000 cash rebates on top of current promotions.

The Triton is powered by 2.4-litre MIVEC turbodiesel engine, which produces 181 PS max power and 430Nm max torque with variable valve timing technology.

The new Triton also comes with six-speed AT transmission that provides seamless and more powerful acceleration resulting in greater response and performance.

For control, the Triton is fitted with Super Select 4WD II for optimum traction and handling characteristics in any given terrain. The off-road mode settings which control engine power, transmission and braking regulate the amount of wheel slip and maximise all-terrain performance.

The Triton is also equipped with Hill Descent Control where the vehicle speed is electronically controlled, while it is in a descent mode. It is further reinforced with class-leading advanced safety 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 SRS airbags (varies across variants). The Triton delivers a turning radius of 5.9m.
