With futuristic sports style bars and a durable hard tonneau cover, the Mitsubishi Triton Fastback oozes street credibility and takes the company’s popular utility range to the next level of stylish design.

The Triton Fastback was first conceived as part of the Panther range of concept vehicles, designed to change the profile of some of the company’s most popular commercial and passenger vehicles, including the Grandis, Pajero, Lancer and Triton vehicles, and was exhibited at last year’s Sydney show.  The Panther concepts sported striking black duco with signature Panther claw detail, aggressive body kits and huge alloy and chrome wheels.

Proving that style is critically important to the ever-increasing four-wheel drive utility segment, the Panther concept that attracted the most attention at last year’s Sydney show was the Triton utility.

According to MMAL’s president and chief executive officer, Robert McEniry, the huge amount of positive feedback the company received regarding the Triton Panther surprised the company.

“We knew that one of Triton’s strengths – apart from its rugged, go-anywhere four-wheel drive ability and excellent on road manners – was its out-there stylish design.  And we also knew that drivers in this segment were very switched on to styling trends.

“But we simply didn’t expect the avalanche of enquiry we received regarding this vehicle.  The interest was so great that we couldn’t resist introducing the Triton Fastback as an ongoing variant in the Triton utility range,” Mr McEniry said.

The Mitsubishi Triton Fastback stays true to the concept’s vision, and includes sports style bars, a distinctive hard tonneau cover, a unique front bumper protector and 17 inch alloy wheels.

Inside, the Triton Fastback features a comprehensive list of luxury appointments, including leather seat trim, steering wheel cover and gearshift and transfer lever, an electric sunroof and automatic climate control air-conditioning.

All Triton Fastbacks are based on the popular GLS model Triton, ensuring the vehicle receives top-of-the-line occupant comfort specifications and appointments and the full economic and performance benefits of the company’s award winning 3.2-litre intercooled and turbo charged diesel engine.

In addition, all Mitsubishi Triton GLS variants now come standard with the company’s acclaimed Super Select four-wheel drive system, a technologically advanced system which ensures sure-footed driveability and refinement no matter what surface you are driving on or what the road conditions are.

The Mitsubishi Super Select system offers four driving modes, including two-wheel drive high, four-wheel drive high, four wheel drive high range with locked centre differential, and four wheel drive low range with locked centre differential for when the going gets really tough.  The first three driving modes can be selected on the fly.

The Mitsubishi  Triton Fastback will be available from all Mitsubishi dealers around Australia in November and will be priced from a reasonable $51,990 for manual variants and $53,990 for automatic variants.

The Mitsubishi Triton Fastback will be on display at the Australian International Motor Show, Sydney, from October 9th to 19th.
