Mitsubishi has today announced that the new dual-cab Triton ute will be revealed in Thailand on 26 July 2023.
The Japanese carmaker also published a series of teaser images of the upcoming sixth-generation model which include glimpses of its updated front and rear end, as well as its refreshed side profile.
Much of the new Triton’s appearance looks as if it has taken inspiration from the camouflaged XRT Concept that was released back in March as well, most notably with regard to its daytime running lights which are supposed to resemble the ‘sharp gaze of a hawk’.
Seiji Watanabe, division general manager of design at Mitsubishi says that the new Triton has been designed with the concept of ‘Beast mode’ in mind which essentially means the model looks as ‘robust’ as it has ever been.
“While expressing the toughness and powerfulness expected of a pickup truck, the all-new Triton combines agility with the brand’s robust design to create an imposing look. Tough and reliable, the all-new Triton will make customers want to go on any adventure.”
Mitsubishi will share the Triton’s platform with the next generation of Nissan Navara, with the two being distinguished by unique styling.
No technical specifications have been released at this time but we can expect the new ute to ride on an all-new ladder-frame chassis and be given a newly-developed engine that makes more power than the current model.
With that in mind, the new Triton will need to make more than 133kW and 430Nm of torque, while supporting a maximum braked towing capacity of 3500kg.
For the time being, we’ll have to sit back and wait until the new Mitsubishi Triton is revealed in full on 26 July 2023.
