airbags to the front and side for both the driver and front passenger, curtain airbags and a
driver’s knee airbag.

“Triton is an enduring nameplate for the Mitsubishi brand,” said Mitsubishi Motors Australia
CEO, Shaun Westcott.

“Its reputation as a highly capable and reliable vehicle, combined with its wide array of
accessory options and unmatched 10-year warranty, have ensured its ongoing success.

“Whether looking for an everyday, rugged workhorse through to a fun family car, seeking
adventure or just needing to ‘get there’, there is a new Mitsubishi Triton available to suit,”
he said.

Prices range from $24,240 for a GLX Single Cab Chassis manual to $63,390 for the GSR
Tan Orange Interior Double Cab Pick-Up automatic with a Roll Top Tonneau Pack. On-
