Being a teaser, not much can be seen apart from the Triton’s silhouette and the LED DRLs. The Triton Athlete appears to feature the “Flying Sports Bar” as seen in the Adventure X variant. Apart from that, we’ll need to wait until the reveal to find out the full details.
In Thailand, the facelifted Triton Athlete has been on the market since 2019. There are 3 colour options available – White Diamond, Jet Black Diamond, and Sunflare Orange. The non-black colour options get a 2-tone finish with a black roof.
Other black bits include rear bumper, front grille, side mirrors, wheels, and the sports bar. Inside, there are orange accents sprinkled around the cabin, chiefly the seats.
Powertrain remains the same – a 2.4-litre MIVEC turbodiesel engine that makes 181 PS and 430 Nm of torque, paired to a 6-speed automatic transmission.
Advanced Driver-Assistance Systems include Forward Collision Mitigation (AEB), Blind Spot Warning, Lane Change Assist, Rear Cross Traffic Alert, and Auto High Beam.
Back in 2018, the pre-facelift Mitsubishi Triton Athlete was launched at the same price as its Adventure X counterpart. The current Triton Adventure X variant goes for RM 137,900 (OTR without insurance), and we can expect that to be the ballpark figure of the new Triton Athlete.
The quest for automotive knowledge began as soon as the earliest memories. Various sources information, even questionable ones, have been explored including video games, television, magazines, or even internet forums. Still stuck in that rabbit hole.
