The number of EVALUATIONS is in a very competitive tonnage market.
The Ford Ranger has turned to the top of the sales cards that looks like a tough F-Series truck-like, and Mitsubishi wants to follow the new Triton model.
A new, toothed, macho looking for Triton will arrive at a local showroom in January to fight Ranger and Australia's most popular vehicle, Toyota HiLux.
But Mitsubishi does not rely solely on the prospect of winning its competitors.
The company says that more than 2,400 changes have been made to the previous model, with accessories focused on new vehicle safety technologies and high-speed driving.
Australia's third most popular ute has been sold primarily to the rear of a sharp drive-away rebate, but the new model is likely to be more expensive and more desirable.
Carl Gehling, a spokeswoman for Carl Gehling, said price increases could increase "according to new vehicle technologies."
The new look was first introduced at Pajero Sport, which was manufactured at Ute, and the brand was a great success.
The previous Triton came back only three years ago, but the ever-increasing competition and customer expectations have led to a dramatic improvement, especially in the area of cabin refinement and security.
It is no longer just the fleet and job responsibilities. They have become family cars with big boots, and the best of them reflects this dual purpose.
The new Triton engine variants include 2.4 liters of petrol (94 kW / 194 Nm) and a turbo diesel engine (133 kW / 430 Nm) corresponding to five and six revolutions respectively. Diesel has a new six-speed car.
However, Triton will dramatically improve its safety suite, albeit with features that fit the Ranger and Mercedes-Benz X-Class and outperform competitors, including HiLux, VW Amarok and Nissan Navara.
Among the new items is the autonomous emergency braking (AEB), which helps to reduce or eliminate frontal crashes, technologies to avoid pedal uncertainty and rear-end traffic alert.
The AEB runs below 140 km / h using camera and laser radar. If tech recognizes the risk of frontal collision with a vehicle or pedestrian, it sounds like a beep – if the driver fails to respond, the brakes are applied automatically.
The security repertoire will be accompanied by a warning about a hidden place, a space-of-view camera and a rear cross-border traffic alert, and a "Reducing Ultrasound Extensions" – first for the segment.
Cameras and sensors recognize solid acceleration by pushing it forward or backward, and technology reduces engine power. This does not work in the low range, so it does not interfere when driving with a light corner.
It also has more technology. The rear seat has a USB charging socket and an air console, while the high-end models feature a 6.1-inch touchscreen as a smartphone.
The highest specification car models have more car shapes, soft-touch double stamping materials, darker color schemes and extra silver garners.
Outside there is a different curve in which the cubicle joins the cube, while the rest of the steel metal has been redesigned to make Triton more durable.
Profile folds goes from front to back. The fog lamp seat is larger on the grille to avoid damage when driving without a road; and the tail lights, now bold and square, are no longer in the cab.
"Looking at general market trends, they are moving to a rugged and enduring image," says Trevor Mann, chief executive of Mitsubishi.
"The previous generation had its own time. It was a market trend and at that time it was different from most of the other pickups, so it was not mine either."
The Australian Mitsubishi team played a decisive role in developing the 2019 model using the extensive Down Under testing program.
Engineers took over hundreds of thousands of kilometers over two years. They also spent time on customers who rated the vehicle in real-world conditions, while experts from other markets went down Under with off-road dynamic analysis.
Behind Thailand, Australia is Mitsubishi's second largest Triton market.
On the road
Improvement in driving comfort and sophistication is anticipated under the skin. Triton felt quieter and more accomplished on Bangkok highways.
The suspension – the double spatula's front and rear spring springs – does not change, but the rear increases the size of the larger damper.
In some of the main off-road road courses, Triton easily handled the conditions through its new downhill control system and the choice of four-wheel drive models that allow the driver to choose gravel, mud / snow, sand and stone models.
It considered it to be more appropriate for dirt, but we will provide a final judgment for a more comprehensive local analysis. It is easier to turn and park a parking space with a tighter turning circle.
It is claimed that fuel efficiency will be improved in diesel car models, which currently drink between 7.0L and 7.6L / 100km, although official numbers have not yet been released.
The braking power remains unchanged at 3.1 tons (3.0 tons per extended cab model), as well as a combined gross vehicle weight of 5885 kg.
It has the same layout with some improvements in the areas that you touch most, such as the central console and doors.
In front of the switch, there is a convenient storage space for phones and other devices near the 12 volt port, two USB slots and an HDMI plug. Two cubicles have two USB ports on the back.
Among the interesting new inclusions are the roof openings. In the central location, the machine sucks air from the front, and the fan pushes it back with a small blind directional flow.
Color choices include two white, gray, orange, red, silver, black, blue and brown. One cabin, extended cockpit and double cab body styles will continue.
Pricing and full specifications will be made available in December, and expect that drive-away deals will disappear as Mitsubishi tries to shift more of Triton's cons.
It is estimated that some models will be unloaded before Christmas, and most of the new Triton will be placed around the New Year.

Put it partner
Mitsubishi's service experience is used to support the next-generation Nissan and Renault equivalents. Mitsubishi boss Trevor Manns says the Triton platform is very likely to be the basis for future Nissan Navaras and Renault Alaska (not available in Australia). The Trio Alliance aims to "turbocharge" each company and provide economies of scale. Mann claims that each brand could give its lead, and in the case of Mitsubishi it would be Triton's basis. "The development of the platform is increasingly becoming more and more expensive as regulations are adopted in various parts of the world (security and emissions)," he says. "We will come closer to the platforms … which means that the next Outlander will be on the same platform as the Nissan and Renault equivalent. Everything that the customer sees is touching, will be Mitsubishi."
Rate on black
Orange might be new black with Triton next year. The world-wide discovery included the concept of Triton Plus with orange and black alloys, lattices and bumpers. Interior decoration combines orange leather and gray suede. Mitsubishi is waiting for feedback before progress, but given the release of blacklists by different makers, more than just a one-off will become a reality.
The next plug-in
Plug-in hybrid ute dawn is a matter of when, not if, says a Mitsubishi product strategist. According to vice president vice president Vincent Cobb, the response is increasing pressure on emissions and guillotine bodywork compared to diesel engines in Europe. He believes that increasing global regulation and "changing the horizons" will create plug-in hybrid technologies that are used by Outlander SUVs. "There will be limitations on what traditional internal combustion engines can offer, especially as there will still be a need for power, torque, drag. If you put it all together, there are not so many technologies that could provide an alarm range, high power , high torque and low CO2. "
