Mitsubishi Triton Passenger Vehicles
Mitsubishi Triton has been around for a long time as both a work and recreation vehicle. While older models were low on luxury, newer Tritons have the benefit of both performance and finishing touches. The right year and model for you depends on your needs and budget, but keep in mind some key factors.
One Ute, Many Cab Options
Tritons come in single, double or club cab options. There isn't really a universal best option; rather consider what your main goals are. Luckily, if you need the extra space in the cab, many of the double and club cabs have a good amount of load space in back. Additionally, you can count on finding single cab models with a Triton cab chassis to give you the flexibility to mount whatever equipment you need.
Triton utes also have decent towing capability. All of the newer models can tow up to 3 tonnes of weight. This may not be enough for a horse and trailer, but it does cover a lot of options. With older models, make sure to verify their towing capacity.
Diesel engines used to be a given in terms of fuel economy. These days, however, they still cost more than petrol, both to buy as well as maintain. With the cost of diesel itself, the question remains if it is really a less expensive choice over the life of the car. Tests have shown that newer Triton models are significantly more fuel-efficient than older model diesel engines, so do take that into consideration.
Of course, pre-owned Tritons come with some options, such as air conditioning or power seats. You can always look into adding others after purchase. For example, you can invest in Mitsubishi car and truck tow bars, weathershields and bonnet protectors after purchase.
