Mitsubishi’s 2015 Triton Facts You Need To Know
Mitsubishi’s fifth-generation Triton has made significant advances in every area and represents a big leap forward in the pickup segment.
The new Mitsubishi Triton rides on the same 3.0 metre wheelbase of its predecessor, although the body sits a little further forward on the chassis compared to the outgoing model, maintaining a 30 degree approach angle and with an improved 22 degree departure angle. This change provides better weight distribution across all four wheels.
This all new 2015 Triton also benefits from a strong rear sub-frame design, allowing the suspension to be tuned for “maximum ride comfort”. Mitsubishi says one of its major focus points was in “overcoming the ride comfort and manoeuvrability issues normally associated with conventional light commercial vehicles”.
In all, the latest Triton boasts a new rear shock and spring design and rates, new front droplink mounting and a bigger front stabiliser bar.
