Mitsubishi has a line of pickup trucks but none are available in the United States. That’s too bad considering the Japanese automaker recently revealed the latest special edition model. The 2016 Mitsubishi Triton GLX+ packs more safety and convenience features compared to the current line.
The Mitsubishi Triton GLX+ builds on the existing GLX model. Under the hood is a 2.4L turbo diesel engine that produces 178 hp and 317 lb-ft of torque. Mated to a five-speed automatic transmission with Sport Mode, that engine certainly packs some capability. With a maximum towing capacity around 6,800 lbs (3,100 kg), this truck is more than capable for fulfilling the needs of most drivers.
Safety and driver assist features include seven airbags, emergency stop signal, a speed limited, trailer stability assist, and hill start assist as standard. That builds the GLX’s existing rear camera, 6.1-inch color touchscreen, rear step bumper, and 16-inch alloy wheels.
As for price, the Mitsubishi Triton GLX+ goes for AU$39,490 with an automatic transmission. Opting for the six-speed manual transmission runs in a good deal cheaper with a price tag of AU$36,990. Having undergone a redesign for the 2015 model year, this is a truck we’d be happy to see enter the United States market.
