Mitsubishi Triton Phantom Launched, Loads of Kit for Just RM115,680
Mitsubishi Motors Malaysia (MMM), the official distributor of Mitsubishi vehicles in Malaysia, made a tough statement today with the introduction of the Triton Phantom. Limited to 200 units, the Triton Phantom is based on the Triton VGT Adventure variant and is created in all-black with accessories to match its tough yet sinister look.
The aesthetic of the Triton Phantom is accentuated by 17 inch matte black alloy rims and matte black grille for an even more aggressive stance. This tougher outlook is complimented by sports bar with full box and matte black rear bumper highlighting the rugged profile.
Additionally, the Triton Phantom also comes with a front bumper extender, Xenon HID Headlamps with Day Time Running (DRL) Lights and special Phantom body stickers and decals. Moving into the cabin, the makeover is even tougher with exclusive Phantom black leather seats.
Priced at RM 115,680.76*, the Triton Phantom comes with 2 Years of Free Maintenance with RM2, 000 cash rebates OR free labour with RM4, 000 cash rebates. The Triton Phantom also comes with a factory warranty of 3 years or the first 100,000 km.
Standard equipment in the Triton Phantom includes first-in-class features such as push start button, keyless operation, tilt and telescopic steering and paddle shifters for manual control of the automatic transmission when the driver wants it.
Other features in the Triton Phantom include 4WD selector, touch screen audio system with reverse camera, auto headlamps and wipers, and dual zone climate control.
In addition, the Triton Phantom comes with an improved and proven 2.5-litre 4-cylinder engine with an intercooled Variable Geometry Turbo (VGT) which offers High Performance with High Fuel Economy. This technologically-advanced Double Overhead Cam (DOHC) 16-valve turbodiesel engine with a common-rail system now produces 178 PS of power at 4,000 rpm and 400 Nm of torque at 2,000 rpm (50 Nm more torque than before) to give the Triton even stronger performance in any conditions. The Triton Phantom comes with a turning radius of 5.9 metres.
An efficient 5-speed automatic transmission with Sport mode is available, coupled to Mitsubishi’s Easy Select 4WD system which distributes power to the front and rear axles. The Easy Select 4WD system has been continuously improved over two decades and is a robust drivetrain able to handle high torque levels.
Like other Mitsubishi models, High Safety performance is a top priority. The all-new Triton has Mitsubishi’s RISE (Reinforced Impact Safety Evolution) body construction which uses high tensile steel that effectively absorbs and disperses crash energy from all directions while also significantly reducing overall weight. Impact bars has been added within the side doors for additional protection against side collisions.
Other safety features that are standard across the range include dual SRS airbags, a collapsible steering column and anti-intrusion brake pedal, which is made to fold away during an accident. Anti-lock braking (ABS) with Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD) is also available. EBD reduces the possibility of skidding when the rear end is light and the wheels may lock up on slippery conditions while braking.
Imported as a Completely Built-Up (CBU) vehicle from Mitsubishi Motors’ global production hub in Thailand, the all-new Triton is also available in five other variants for the Malaysian market. The following prices (without insurance, GST inclusive for private registration) are quoted for the all-new Triton in Peninsular Malaysia:
