Mitsubishi Motors South Africa is expanding their Triton bakkie offering in order to make it a more attractive choice for fleet owners and small and medium enterprises.

 

As such they have added a Triton Double Cab GL to the range with an aggressive price point that will be attractive to lifestyle and fleet customers alike thanks to its accessibility, versatility and bold contemporary styling.

 

As an entry-level derivative to the Triton line up, the GL is available exclusively as a 4x2 with a six-speed manual transmission. A limited-slip differential, 75-litre fuel tank and 245/70R16 alloy wheels as well as seats that are covered with a high-grade durable fabric are befitting of its workhorse intent.

 

Under the bonnet

Mitsubishi’s proven DOHC intercooled turbo diesel engine, offering 100kW and 324Nm. Mitsubishi claim and impressive fuel consumption figure of 8.0 litres/100km on the combined cycle, which adds to the appeal for fleet owners.

 

The Triton is based on a rigid ladder chassis and double wishbones with coil springs and a stabiliser bar as well as an above the axle leaf spring rear suspension setup that offers great traction and load carrying capacity up to 1 ton.

 

A spacious load bed measuring 1520mm by 1470mm while being 475mm in depth has been reinforced for durability.

 

Despite its workhorse intentions the safety package on the GL includes ABS brakes with EBD, Isofix child seat anchors as well as airbags for the driver and front passenger.

 

Striking features

Convenience features include keyless entry, central locking, an immobiliser, electric windows as well as automatic air-conditioning and a touchscreen radio/CD player. A touchscreen infotainment system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay is available as an optional extra.

 

Striking exterior design features include Mitsubishi’s Dynamic Shield front design, which incorporates a high hood line, sculpted body curves with contrasting sharp lines, flared wheel arches and bright accents.

 

Mitsubishi’s entire commercial vehicle offering, including the new Triton Double Cab GL is now covered by a three-year/100 000km warranty as well as a five-year/90 000km service plan.
