Apparently, the Triton VGT Euro is the first pick-up truck in Malaysia to offer a power sunroof.

 

For comfort and convenience, the interior of the new Triton VGT Euro adds on Audio player with Bluetooth connectivity and new leather seats.

 

Priced at RM 110,998.00 on-the-road with insurance, the Triton VGT Euro is available in 3 colors – White Solid, Black Mica and Red Solid. 

 

The Triton VGT was launched in March earlier this year and since then has sold close to 2,000 units in Malaysia.  With a new powerful and economical engine with Variable Geometry Turbo (VGT), Malaysia’s most awarded pick-up truck is also now the most powerful pick-up truck in its class.

 

The 2.5-litre common-rail turbocharged diesel engine provides optimal turbo aspect ratio at any given speed, harnessing the power of the exhaust gas, and ensuring a constant delivery of additional fresh air to the engine for optimum performance.

 

As a result of the VGT and engine management, maximum power is significantly boosted to 178 PS at 4,000 rpm, while maximum torque rises to 350 Nm.

 

The Triton offers the best in class turning radius of 5.9 metres. It is also fitted with a Hybrid Limited Slip Differential (LSD) that gives excellent off-road response. Hybrid LSD combines the torque-sensing benefit of helical gears and the speed-sensing of a viscous coupling unit, all designed to work alongside ABS (Anti-Lock Braking System) and EBD (Electronic Brake-force Distribution), which are some of the standard features.

 

Power is transferred to the wheels via Mitsubishi’s Easy Select 4WD system which allows the driver to ‘shift on the fly’ from 2WD to 4WD at speeds of up to 100km/h. The 5-speed Automatic Transmission with Sports Mode combines the convenience of an automatic transmission with direct control of a manual to give drivers the best of both worlds.

 

Unique to the all the Mitsubishi’s 4WD line-up, its informative RV meter displays travel data such as driving range, average speed, fuel consumption and also a digital compass, barometer, altimeter and outer temperature.
