The Mitsubishi Triton Absolute concept has been revealed at the Bangkok motor show, if it enters production it will give the brand a rival to the HiLux Rugged X and Ranger Wildtrak.
In concept form, the Mitsubishi Triton Absolute exudes a robust stance with protective body panelling, rugged styling elements and enhanced LED lighting.
Built as a hardcore off-roader, the Triton Absolute is underpinned by a wider track which accommodates heavy-duty muddies. The body is raised by 50mm due to upgraded suspension allowing for more ground clearance and suspension travel which in turn delivers better ride and handling when the going gets tough.
Mitsubishi Motors Australia CEO, John Signoriello, commented on the concept saying, “The Triton Absolute concept is more robust, dynamic and powerful. It demonstrates our commitment to exploring a vision of the future Triton that will deliver on our ‘engineered beyond tough’ commitment to the Triton series - bold enough to be taken on even more adventurous treks to explore Australia's rugged outback, which is one of Mitsubishi’s defining strengths."
Mitsubishi will showcase the Triton Absolute over the coming 12 months to gauge public interest and feedback. He also mentioned that even though the vehicle was still in its concept phase, customer interest and feedback from Triton markets including Australia would be assessed to determine the development of the project.
The Triton is a popular ute Down Under and there’s little doubt the Absolute would be a success if it reaches showrooms at the right price.
