The sporty new Triton Athlete which is based on the international Triton Adventure X-development, boldly stands out in any famous crowd. This new Special Edition lifestyle double cab bakkie is assembled in Mitsubishi’s Thailand factory and shares the underpinnings of the top-of-the-range Triton double-cab 4x4 automatic derivative.
The new Triton Athlete with its bold orange and black highlights and exterior design cues with matching interior trimmings, caters for individuals and families who live life to the extreme, participating in adventure and sporty lifestyle activities such as surfing, mountain biking, paragliding, show jumping and even motocross or off-road motorcycling.
However, the new lifestyle-orientated Triton Athlete does not only look sportier and more athletic than its double-cab siblings, but also offers an upgraded towing capacity of 3.1 tons to tow any lifestyle equipment, as well as increased safety features such as 7 airbags and Isofix child seat anchors for increased passenger and child safety.
AGILE AND SMOOTH CAR-LIKE DRIVING
The new Triton Athlete is as nimble as an obstacle course athlete thanks to its manageable size which makes it easy to drive around town, great to manoeuvre in tight spots on and off the road and can be easily parked in most garages and parking bays. The Triton’s innovative design results in a class-leading turning radius of only 5.9 metres and makes it a pleasure to drive in congested urban areas and harsh off-road conditions.
The new Triton Athlete was designed to match the ride quality of an SUV without compromising the workhorse qualities that have made lifestyle double cab bakkies so popular in South Africa. Numerous noise insulators as well as noise absorbing and damping materials are applied in many parts of the Triton to further reduce NVH levels, resulting in a smooth and quiet car-like driving experience. The dynamic and sporty suspension enables car-like ride comfort and superb driving stability which also reduces body roll, provides quicker handling response and ensures a safer, quieter and more comfortable ride.
UNIQUE SUPER SELECT II 4WD SYSTEM
The latest version of Mitsubishi’s unique Super Select II four-wheel drive system is fitted to the new Triton Athlete which makes it the ideal extreme sport partner. The highly capable Super Select II 4WD system, which also improves cornering performance and manoeuvrability, provides the Triton Athlete with four drive modes to give the driver more control in challenging weather conditions or on difficult surfaces:
2H (2WD High range) gives quieter running and better fuel consumption during normal on-road driving;
4H (4WD High range), selectable at speeds up to 100 km/h, distributes torque in a 40:60 ratio between front and rear axles via a centre differential (CD) – the latter permits safer on-road driving in slippery conditions;
4HLc (4WD High range with CD locked) improves traction on sand, dirt and snow roads by distributing torque equally between the front and rear;
4LLc (4WD Low range with CD locked) provides greater torque for extreme off-road conditions.
Excellent axle reticulation, combined with Mitsubishi’s legendary Super-Select II four-wheel drive system, class-leading approach angle of 28°, departure angle of 22° and break-over angle of 25°, make the Triton Athlete a mean off-road competitor, which can be your ideal partner in all your extreme adventure lifestyle activities.
