Throughout the lifespan of the current Triton, Mitsubishi Motors South Africa (MMSA) has continued to offer models that cater for the needs of customers.

This has resulted in a variety of locally developed special edition models, including the Triton Xtreme in 2020, and the launch of the Triton GL single and double cab derivatives and the Triton Heritage Edition in 2022.

The Triton Xtreme was shown earlier this year at Nampo and just recently the Triton Athlete hit the road in South Africa.

Jeffrey Allison, general manager of marketing at MMSA, says: “The launch of the Triton GL double cab in 2022 has been beneficial in allowing MMSA to offer our customers greater versatility in the commercial vehicle market and attract more of those customers to the Mitsubishi brand.”

For these customers, the level of specification included, along with modern styling and legendary Mitsubishi reliability at a more affordable price point, continue to represent a sweet spot in terms of value for money.

“The fitment of a number of choice accessories to the limited edition GLX should cement its position as a vehicle that can appeal to leisure customers as much as it does to those looking for a stylish workhorse,” says Allison.

Performance and fuel economy
The Triton GLX Double Cab utilises a 4×2 drivetrain, limited-slip differential and six-speed manual transmission that is capable of handling a wide variety of work and leisure tasks and doesn’t shy away from light off-roading or gravel road driving.

This engine and drivetrain combination also offers an excellent balance of performance and fuel economy, utilising just 8ℓ/100km on the combined cycle, which is a real boon giving the record-high fuel prices.

As with all Triton models, the limited edition GLX rides on a rigid ladder frame chassis that facilitates excellent handling and stability across a wide variety of road surfaces. The towing of leisure items or work trailers is now possible thanks to a neatly integrated double tube tow bar.

Ready for work or play
The spacious load bed measures 1 520mm in length, 1 470mm in width and is 475mm deep.

The list of creature comforts is comprehensive and includes keyless entry, central locking, an immobiliser, electric windows, air conditioning and a touchscreen radio/CD player that has been upgraded with a Sony audio system in this limited edition model.

The limited edition Triton GLX is fitted with an extensive list of standard safety equipment including ABS brakes with EBD as well as Isofix child seat anchors. Occupant safety is ensured by a high-impact safety structure and airbags for the driver and front passenger.

Warranty and service
Mitsubishi’s entire commercial vehicle line-up, including the Triton GLX double cab, is covered by a three- year/100 000km manufacturer’s warranty as standard.

A five-year/90 000km service plan and five-year/unlimited roadside assistance ensures peace of mind and cost-effective motoring. Service intervals are set for every 10 000km.
