Triton receives a booster shot

Riley Riley

Mitsubishi has decided to give its Triton range a booster shot with the addition of a Sport Edition.

Limited to 400 examples, it’s priced from $56,440 plus on-roads.

It slots between the GLS Deluxe Double Cab Pick-Up ($54,940) and GSR Double Cab Pick-Up ($56,940).

The range tops out at $64,640 for the GSR Double Cab Pick-Up, fitted with Tan Orange Interior and Roll Top Tonneau Pack.

Based on the GLS Deluxe, the Sport Edition adds black exterior trims, red exterior accents and specific decals — but not much else from what we can see.

It treads a well trodden path because back in 2017 there was an earlier Sports Edition also based on the GLS, plus a couple of similarly spec’d black editions since then.

This one is available in white or black, the it features a dark theme throughout, contrasting the chrome dynamic shield badging with black exterior trims.

Red accents are applied to the skid plate, side steps and rear section, while bonnet and tailgate decals complete a truly unique exterior appearance.

Inside, the seats are upholstered in black leather with red stitching to complete the Sport Edition theme.

Production of the 23MY Triton range commences in September 2022 with first arrivals expected in dealerships from December.

Triton continues to perform well for Mitsubishi and is currently ranked five in the list of top 10 selling vehicles.

“We are very proud of Triton’s market performance throughout 2022,” Mitsubishi’s Shaun Westcott said.

“As part of continually evolving our product offer, we now welcome the new, limited-production Triton Sport Edition to Australia.

“This vehicle is perfectly placed to appeal to those who value a uniquely sporting style, combined with the capability, functionality and practicality that Triton is renowned for.”

All Triton Sport Editions are configured as Dual Cab Pick Ups with Mitsubishi’s Super Select 4×4 drivetrain with rear diff lock.

Being based on the highly-appointed GLS Deluxe grade, the Triton Sport Edition is only available with the six-speed automatic transmission.

The refreshed range sees the return of the factory-fitted SDA1 audio system to Triton GLX-R and GLS model grades, thanks to improved component supply conditions (presumably the Sport Edition too).

This integrated system features a 7.0-inch touchscreen, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity, as well as two USB points and a HDMI port to support multiple connections.
