Mitsubishi has officially revealed the Triton Athlete, which is scheduled to make its public debut at the Thai Motor Expo commencing November 30 onwards. Prices of the Mitsubishi Triton Athlete variants have not been announced yet.
The Mitsubishi Triton Athlete gets a handful of cosmetic enhancements. Highlights include a blacked-out honeycomb grille, black cladding on the bumpers and wheel arches. The black theme continues with blacked out 17-inch alloy wheels, side steps, ORVMs, and door handles. Mitsubishi has been generous with black and orange decals all around.
The black and orange theme continues on inside as well. The seats are wrapped in black upholstery with orange inlays to match the body graphics. ‘Athlete’ lettering is present on the seat back and floor mats. Bits like the seat, steering wheel, gear knob, door panel, storage box, and center console get orange stitching. Feature additions include an 8-way electrically adjustable driver’s seat and a touchscreen AVN with Apple CarPlay support.
Mitsubishi will offer the Triton Athlete in three colours - White Pearl, Titanium Grey, and Black Diamond. There will be three variants on offer - Double Cab Plus MT, Double Cab Plus AT and Double Cab 4WD.
Powering the Mitsubishi Triton Athlete is a 2.4 L MIVEC engine producing 181 hp @ 3,500 rpm and 430 Nm @ 2,500 rpm. Transmission choices include a 6-speed manual and 5-speed automatic. The automatic variant is available in both 2WD and 4WD formats.
