The next-generation Mitsubishi Triton pickup is not too far away, as previewed today by the Mitsubishi XRT Concept. Slated to launch later this year, the new Triton will base its design on the bold lines and muscular proportions of the XRT Concept.
The Triton is Mitsubishi’s top-selling model manufactured at the Laemchabang Factory in Thailand. With its first full redesign in approximately nine years, the all-new Triton will be the sixth generation of the brand’s midsize pickup truck.
The Mitsubishi XRT Concept is characterised by a prominent front fascia and a muscular bonnet that continues to the side with bold, horizontally-themed styling. The concept also boasts front and rear over fenders as well as mud-terrain tyres, giving it the “powerful drive to compete in grueling rallies and the dynamism to dash across the terrain”.
The body features a camouflage design inspired by lava rocks packed with condensed energy, and the sides have been adorned with a graphic of the 10-parallel line Ralliart brand icon that expresses Mitsubishi Motors’ passion for driving.
Mitsubishi says the all-new Triton is going through final touch-ups in preparation for its release. Rigorous endurance tests have been performed around the world with know-how gained from rally activities incorporated in the engineering.
