There’s a new workhorse in town and it comes in the form of Mitsubishi’s new single-cab Triton GL. Mitsubishi Motors South Africa is targeting business or fleet consumers with the newcomer.
Refreshed exterior and interior
The most notable introduction of the range is the exterior design of the single cab triton GL, which includes a black grille, black door handles, size 205/R16C steel wheels, mirror, tailgate handle, black rear bumper and black side steps. The interior of GLS double cab models boast rear air vents, auto headlamps and auto wipers.
The Mitsubishi Triton 4×2 Single Cab is powered by Mitsubishi’s proven DOHC intercooled turbo-diesel engine, with 100 kW of power and 324 Nm of peak torque. The powerplant is exclusively available with a six-speed manual transmission. Mitsubishi claims an overall fuel consumption average of 8l/100 km.
The new single-cab Triton features a weight-saving limited-slip differential, which is said to provide traction when one wheel slips and controlled power is transmitted to all the driving wheels, redistributing the engine’s torque to the wheels with the most grip.
