2012 Mitsubishi Triton Lite Turbo Now Open For Booking
Mitsubishi Motors Malaysia, busy from launching the Triton VGT, has opened booking for the Triton Lite Turbo 2.5 4x2 manual variant, an entry-level Triton that is priced at RM 65,997.10 (OTR pricing includes insurance, two-year free maintenance package and three-year/100,000km warranty). That price represents a less than RM 2K premium over the Triton Lite.
The highlight, as its name suggests, is the addition of a turbocharger to the 2.5-litre 8-valve non-direct-injected SOHC diesel engine, boosting the output to 89 HP at 4000 rpm and 196 Nm at 2000 rpm, up from 75 HP and 149 Nm which came at a higher 2500 rpm. A five-speed manual gearbox and front-wheel-drive configuration are the only options like in the Triton Lite.
Available in Cool Silver Metallic or White Solid, the Mitsubishi Triton Lite Turbo comes with redesigned 15" alloys and chrome finish on the door handles and side mirrors. Moving inside, the cabin is refreshed with a dual-tone colour scheme and counts a single-DIN audio head unit with Aux-in jack as new equipment.
