    Interesting fact! The Mitsubishi Group was established in Japan in 1870. And since then she has never changed her logo. Three well-known rhombuses symbolize three diamonds, "three whales", on which the whole concept of the concern rests: honesty, responsibility and readiness for cooperation.

    After the off-road section we head into town, first back through the Hills but on some different roads, then the outer urban sprawl before being trapped in the late-arvo city rush…. This is tough 4x4 country. The verdict - Look after almost 6 months I like driving the car, it drives well and so far no more mechanical failures at almost 15,km now. Off road the Triton benefits from a deeper low-range reduction and a rear diff lock that is either standard or optional depending on the model. Has flat spot on acceleration.

    Mitsubishi Triton: First Drive

    Allow one to introduce the tradie with manners. Mitsubishi has launched its model Triton and it's raising the etiquette bar. Designed to be more "car-like", it's a far improved ute than the model it replaces. Rugged and hard-working, the Triton has been a success story.

    For now the Triton is only available with a turbo diesel. For the first time in a Triton there is telescopic steering wheel adjustment, while the seating has been vastly improved. Seat foam density increases and there is additional bolstering laterally and around the thighs…together these introductions make the cabin an improved location for taller passengers.

    Interior treatments are more practical than pretty. Base variants are typically basic, which is fair enough given the market, while upper spec derivatives have various shades of grey combined with piano black and silver finishes. Hefty strides forward have been made with cabin acoustics and the Triton is a far quieter ride. Passengers don't need to shout at highway speeds where there is only minor wind noise from the large side mirrors. The diesel generates typical clatter when cold and during hard work on inclines, although it doesn't dominate aurally.

    With more power underfoot and better steering, it lends itself to work or family duties. The new oil-burner generates slightly more power, just 2kW, but the hefty gains come in pulling power. Peak torque is up 30 Newton metres in manuals and 80Nm in automatics to Nm. Boosting the torque, as well as a new turbocharger which spools quicker, has delivered more instantaneous throttle response at low speed with greater acceleration prowess.

    Changes to the steering ratio mean lock-to-lock takes 3. Mid-spec variants get the "super" four-wheel drive system, which simply means changing from two-wheel drive to four-high and four-low can be done via a console dial rather than a shifter. We tested the Triton in sand on Fraser Island where it was unfazed throughout the boggy inland tracks and never looked like getting stuck.

    Soft sand saw the traction control step in on several occasions which proved frustrating, but it remained adept even without lowering tyre pressure. On the highway it proved composed, cruising at kmh around rpm. GLX models have inch steel wheels, cruise control, Bluetooth connectivity with voice command, speed limiter, CD stereo with USB port, trip computer, along with five-star safety courtesy of anti-lock brakes, seven airbags, stability control, trailer stability assist and hill start assist.

    The GLS has the "Super Select II" four-wheel drive system, inch alloys, high intensity discharge headlights, LED daytime running lamps, rear view camera, leather trimmed three-spoke steering wheel and gear shifter, interior with piano black and silver trim highlights, dual-zone air con, and an upgraded stereo with a Exceed also get paddle shifters on the steering wheel, diff lock, leather-look door trim, push button start, leather trimmed seats driver's pew is electrically adjustable , automatic lights and wipers, power driver's seat and Boasting outstanding fuel economy, the official figure is just above seven litres for every km.

    Our bitumen test route saw it climb into the nines but we'll do more analysis over a longer journey in future. Capped price servicing is available for the first four maintenance intervals, and there is a solid warranty backed by a large, well established dealership network. Hard plastics are used throughout the console and dash, and there is a pair of cup holders in the console and fold down arm rest in the back, along with a deep centre console and a handy spot for phones and audio players just below the USB port.

    Back seats of dual cabs haven't typically been inviting in the past, but the Triton pew is contoured with a degree recline. Legroom is good enough for two adults, three at a push, while there are excellent roof-mounted handles above the front doors to aid entry and exit.
