Triton Heritage Edition

This heritage month, Mitsubishi will be celebrating their heritage with the launch of a special edition Triton Heritage Edition that adds a number of special touches to the Triton double cab 4x4 on which it is based.

The Triton Heritage Edition will be limited to 50 units, all of which will be individually numbered. The purchase also includes a number of bespoke experiences as part of the special edition package.

The Triton is one of the best looking bakkies on the market and achieves this thanks to a rugged yet refined exterior that incorporates Mitsubishi’s Dynamic Shield front design, and features a high bonnet and muscular headlights. Sculpted bodylines all around complete the rugged look.

On Heritage Edition models the exterior styling is further enhanced by a variety of black trim pieces. The lower scuff plate, grille, roof bars and wheel arch cladding are now black. Front fenders are adorned with numbered Heritage badges, which solidify its special edition status.

Standard equipment includes a rear tow bar, rubberised load bin, black Keko roll bar and tonneau cover.

Inside story

The interior features a combination of robust design and modern high-quality materials on touch surfaces. A numbered plaque occupies pride of place and adds a special edition touch to the interior. Standard features include a tilt and telescopic adjustable steering column and multi-function leather steering wheel, Bluetooth, CarPlay, dual-zone automatic air-conditioning, leather seats and an electrically adjustable driver seat.

The ability to go places

The Triton features Mitsubishi’s legendary Super Select II 4WD system that is able to deliver optimum traction and handling on any surface, by transferring power to the wheels with grip as and when necessary. With ground clearance of 220mm, approach and departure angles of 31-degrees and 29-degrees respectively and a 25-degree ramp break over angle, the Triton Heritage has the capability to tackle the toughest 4x4 obstacles.

Under the bonnet

The Triton Heritage Edition is fitted with Mitsubishi’s tried and tested 2.4L MIVEC turbodiesel engine, offering 133kW and 430Nm and paired to a six-speed automatic transmission.

The Special Edition offering

The 50 motorists who are lucky enough to secure one of the Triton Heritage Edition models will also received a complimentary gift box, incorporating the limited-edition number, space for two keys and a host of experiential benefits. Included in the box is the opportunity to join a bespoke 4x4 club that will allow owners to get to know their vehicle intimately under the guidance of expert instructors and an invite to a curated off-roading experience that will allow owners to experience the beauty and heritage of South Africa from the seat of their own vehicles.

In addition owners will receive a unique Heritage Edition card that will allow them access to a bespoke Heritage Edition portal where owners will be treated to VIP customer support when necessary.

Model range and pricing

All Triton models are covered by Mitsubishi’s three-year/10 000km warranty and five-year/90 000km service plan.

The Triton Heritage edition sells for R40 000 more than its regular counterpart at a retail price of R719 990.
