Mitsubishi 4x4 vehicles in Penang!

Inspired by Mitsubishi’s victory in the 2014 Pikes Peak International Hill Climb Challenge, Mitsubishi Motors Malaysia recently launched the Mitsubishi Red Peak Challenge which sees Mitsubishi 4×4 vehicles perform amazing feats on a specially outfitted obstacle truck – the first-of-its-kind in Malaysia.

The Mitsubishi Red Peak Challenge puts the Triton pick-up, the Pajero Sport SUV and the ASX Compact SUV through their paces on the purpose-built Mitsubishi truck featuring a wide range of obstacles including a 45-degree, 25-feet tall “peak” ramp that points upwards to the sky – an extreme test for any 4×4 vehicle. The giant ramp will no doubt challenge the capabilities of both man and machine while offering a bird’s eye view of the surroundings.
