Mitsubishi have gone above and beyond with the brand-new Mitsubishi Triton; it's got a fresh, muscular front-end, a 5-star safety rating, as well as oodles of mod cons and creature comforts like a 7" Touchscreen, SmartPhone connectivity (via CarPlay and Android Auto) and full Bluetooth functionality.
But perhaps the most impressive element of the new ute is the dominant engine which, combined with new and improved structural elements, makes this a hugely versatile and powerful automobile. More than ever before, the Mitsubishi Triton towing power will blow you away. It's a huge step-up from previous models. Here are just a few facts about the Triton's glorious tow capacity and some ideas about how you might put it to good use.
Push it to the Max
4WD Double Cab models of the Triton can tow up to 3.5T. No wonder it's got so much grunt; the 2.4L Turbo Diesel engine supplies the vehicle with a whopping 135kW of Power, and 437Nm of Torque. The transmission comes in your choice of 6-Speed Manual or 6-Speed Auto (which we recommend for those towing the heaviest of loads), so you'll be able to haul however you feel most comfortable.
What can you do with all that Towing Power?
The 3.5T towing power of the most recent model will be a boon for tradies and agricultural workers, but that's not all; there's more than enough oomph in this car for both work and play. If you're looking for an automobile to drive around New Zealand, on a weekend or extended trip, and are looking to tow a boat or haul a great big caravan around with you, this is the ute you'll want. For the Mitsubishi Triton, towing caravan-type attachments presents no worries at all—almost totally irrespective of incline or terrain.
The Triton has some truly tremendous features to help you get the most out of its towing power. There's a top-quality reversing camera that makes it easier than ever to hook up a trailer to your ute. When you're driving, you'll also benefit from computerised Trailer Stability Assist. It detects potentially dangerous trailer sway, then automatically applies the breaks on one side of your car to correct it. Towing has never been so easy, or so safe.
