2017 Mitsubishi Triton GLS Review

MITSUBISHI TRITON GLS SPORTS EDITION DOUBLE CAB

Mitsubishi’s Triton is a popular choice for tradies and lifestylers who value its reliability reputation, large dealer network and good value for money.

When the new model arrived a while back it brought some new technology and a new engine along with completely new styling.

Some like the look of it some don’t but the GLS Sport Edition addresses that issue with a comprehensive black-out treatment to wheels, bumpers side steps, sports bar, grille, headlight surrounds and rear bumper.

The effect takes Triton right up to Ford’s striking Ranger in terms Triton LTD of visual appeal.

Triton GLS gains additional equipment for the money including a locking rear differential that combines with the advanced Super Select 4WD system to allow this ute to go just about anywhere… and get back.

When the new model arrived a while back it brought some new technology and a new engine along with completely new styling.

It will tow 3100kg, has a payload of a tonne, a 1520mm long tray and the new 2.4-litre turbo diesel engine scores variable cam timing called MIVEC for efficiency gains.

It’s a good thing by any measure
