Mitsubishi Triton Now With A New Engine
The all new Mitsubishi Triton comes with an all new engine which is a 2.4-litre turbo-diesel producing 133kW at 3500rpm and 430Nm of torque at 2500Nm at 2500rpm. This is a sizeable increase over the outgoing 2.5-litre’s 100kW and 314Nm, although on paper not a huge improvement on the High Performance Diesel’s 131kW and 400Nm (350Nm in the auto).
The on-road improvement, however, is undeniable with a wider torque spread (25 percent extra at 1500rpm) combining with lighter weight to make the Triton (in any variant) feel highly responsive and flexible.
Fuel consumption has come down by 11 to 21 percent, ranging from 7.0L/100km for the manual (an all-new six-speed unit) single-cab chassis to 7.6L/100km for the five-speed auto as used in the Pajero (but tweaked for the all new Triton).
