Pickup truck of the year – Mitsubishi Triton VGT
The urban cowboy in Malaysia has quite a range to choose from. Both American, and Japanese makes push as hard as they can to get attention of the pickup truck shopper. In this highly competitive market, some have lost the ball a little. The modern day pickup is too polished, too complicated to go through years of hard use without something going wrong.
Thankfully, there are still those with practical, focused products. Mitsubishi’s Triton may not be as expensive as the competition, but the company still has plenty to offer. With an unmatched 5-year/200,000km warranty programme, plenty of features and a new, modern 2.4-litre MIVEC diesel engine, Mitsubishi have themselves a winner with the new Triton.
