The 2017 Mitsubishi Triton will be durable and dependable compact pickup truck which is among the best offers in this workhorse class. Redesigned as the new generation model for the current model year it offers spacious and refined interior that is backed with modern and efficient turbo diesel engine but it is also good on safety. Its styling is unique and fresh and it is off-raod ready but it doesn’t meet class leaders in towing and payload capacity.
Redesigned as the fifth-generation model this model benefits from the new diesel engine, improved suspension and it wears revised styling. Reworked interior is more refined and better equipped and safety equipment is upgraded. The model is still based on the proven underpinning but it delivers among the best ride quality. All this leaves very small room for upgrades to the upcoming 2017 Triton and there won’t be big changes expect more standard features and some incremental upgrades.
