The all-new Triton was designed to match the ride quality of an SUV without compromising the workhorse qualities that have made double cab bakkies so popular in South Africa. The Triton’s innovative design results in a class-leading turning radius of only 5.9 metres and makes it a pleasure to drive in congested urban areas and harsh off-road conditions. The fully revised suspension enables car-like ride comfort and superb driving stability which also reduces body roll, provides quicker handling response and ensures a safer, quieter and more comfortable ride. Numerous noise insulators as well as noise absorbing and damping materials are applied in many parts of the vehicle to further reduce NVH levels, resulting in a smooth and quiet car-like driving experience.
UNIQUE SUPER SELECT II 4WD SYSTEM
The latest version of Mitsubishi’s unique Super Select II four-wheel drive system is fitted to the all-new Triton 4×4 derivatives. The highly capable Super Select II 4WD system, which also improves cornering performance and manoeuvrability, provides the Triton with four drive modes giving the driver more control in challenging weather conditions or on difficult surfaces:
2H (2WD High range) gives quieter running and better fuel consumption during normal on-road driving;
4H (4WD High range), selectable at speeds up to 100 km/h, distributes torque in a 40:60 ratio between front and rear axles via a centre differential (CD) – the latter permits safer on-road driving in slippery conditions;
4HLc (4WD High range with CD locked) improves traction on sand, dirt and snow roads by distributing torque equally between the front and rear;
4LLc (4WD Low range with CD locked) provides greater torque for extreme off-road conditions.
