Mitsubishi Motors Malaysia recently launched the new Mitsubishi Triton VGT Euro. Made especially for those who enjoy the outdoors with an urban lifestyle, it is exclusively limited to just 180 units.

The latest Mitsubishi Triton VGT Euro adds on power sunroof (the first pick-up truck in Malaysia to offer this feature) power slide and vent rear window, new front bumper extender with LED day time running lights, short cargo bed with sports roll bar, color-keyed rear step bumper, tail lamp garnish and door handle protectors.

For comfort and convenience, the interior features Audio player with Bluetooth connectivity and new leather seats. Unique to the Triton, its informative RV meter displays travel data such as driving range, average speed, fuel consumption and also a digital compass, barometer, altimeter and outer temperature.

The Triton VGT was launched in March earlier this year and since then has sold close to 2,000 units in Malaysia.  With a new powerful and economical engine with Variable Geometry Turbo (VGT), it is now the most powerful pick-up truck in its class.
The 2.5-litre powertrain diesel engine provides optimal turbo aspect ratio at any given speed, harnessing the power of the exhaust gas, and ensuring a constant delivery of additional fresh air to the engine for optimum performance. As a result of the VGT and engine management, maximum power is significantly boosted to 178PS at 4,000rpm, while maximum torque rises to 350Nm.

Power is channeled to the wheels via Mitsubishi’s Easy Select 4WD system which allows the driver to ‘shift on the fly’ from 2WD to 4WD at speeds of up to 100km/h. The 5-speed Automatic Transmission with Sports Mode combines the convenience of an automatic transmission with direct control of a manual to give drivers the best of both worlds. It is also fitted with a Hybrid Limited Slip Differential (LSD) that gives excellent off-road response. Hybrid LSD combines the torque-sensing benefit of helical gears and the speed-sensing of a viscous coupling unit, all designed to work alongside ABS (Anti-Lock Braking System) and EBD (Electronic Brake-force Distribution), which are some of the standard features.

Priced at RM 110,998.00 on-the-road with insurance, the Triton VGT Euro is obtainable in three colors – White Solid, Black Mica and Red Solid.
