A teaser was released on YouTube by the company last week. Now, Headlight Magazine has shared images revealing the highlights of the Mitsubishi Triton Athlete.
Cosmetic enhancements include a blacked-out honeycomb grille, black cladding on the bumpers and wheel arches, and blacked out 17-inch alloy wheels, side steps, ORVMs, and door handles. The Mitsubishi Triton Athlete features black and orange decals all around.
Inside, the seat upholstery is black with orange inlays to match the body graphics. The Seat, steering wheel, gear knob, door panel, storage box, and center console get orange stitching. There is 'Athlete' lettering on the seat back and floor mats. Feature additions include an 8-way electrically adjustable driver's seat and a touchscreen AVN with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto support.
The Mitsubishi Triton Athlete will be powered by a 2.4 L MIVEC engine capable of producing 181 hp and 430 Nm. There will be 6-speed manual and 5-speed automatic transmission choices on offer. Mitsubishi will offer the special edition Triton in three variants – Double Cab 2.4 MIVEC Plus MT, Double Cab 2.4 MIVEC Plus AT, and Double Cab 2.4 MIVEC 4×4 AT.
