Previous - Next



The TMR Triton is a concept vehicle which closely represents a production reality.  Prepared by Alan Heaphy’s TMR engineering centre at Dandenong, Victoria, the TMR Triton delivers increased power and enhanced performance and handling, whilst preserving the tough, dependable spirit for which Triton is known.

With a 3.2L common rail turbo diesel engine generating a 12 per cent increase in power to an impressive 132kW @ 3,800rpm and a 31 per cent increase in torque to a phenomenal 450Nm @ 2,000rpm above the base model Triton, the TMR Triton has plenty of extra grunt.

In terms of handling capabilities, the TMR Triton is unparalleled.  Improved suspension is achieved through the addition of Koni 8240 series shock absorbers fitted to the front and rear.  A front brake package consisting of large 4 piston callipers with 343mm x 29mm ventilated and slotted two piece discs with high performance Ferodo DS25HP brake pads provides increased braking power, and an ABS system with EBD is standard.

With stylish 18 inch by 8 inch Dakar alloy wheels, Pirelli Scorpion ATR 255/55R18 tyres with a symmetrical tread design delivering the all-terrain versatility required, the TMR Triton has excellent traction on every surface, reduced aquaplaning, top braking efficiency, the highest resistance to damage, and comfortable driving on sealed roads.

Exterior upgrades to the TMR Triton include the addition of a sports headlamp kit and chrome upper and lower sports grille.  Unique TMR Triton badging gives the TMR Triton a distinctive sense of style.

Inside, the TMR Triton receives quality stitched TMR logos to the front and rear leather seats. Stainless steel scuff plates and a full carpet mat set give this Triton variant its own personal style.

And the Triton TMR takes good care of technical and audio buffs, too.  The vehicle’s audio system has been improved with the addition of a highly functional Eclipse CD3200 Multi Source Sound System which has a powerful 50W x 4 internal amplifiers along with USB input, integrated Bluetooth hands-free and full iPod control.

The TMR Triton will be a feature of the Mitsubishi display at the Australian International Motor Show, Sydney from October 9th-19th.
