Renowned Aussie-tuner Walkinshaw Performance recently unveiled a limited edition version of the 2023 Mitsubishi Triton, exclusive to the Australian market, which looks so mean, we think it makes the Toyota Hilux GR Sport look a tad soft.
Dubbed the Triton Xtreme, the tuning package takes an Australian-market Triton GSR – which bears many similarities to our Triton Athlete – and upgrades the suspension, wheels and tyre package; and adds other bits to further enhance the Xtreme’s on- and offroad capabilities.

Starting with the suspension, the Xtreme gets a complete Supashock suspension setup, all four units have remote reservoirs for better durability and predictability in offroad driving.
Elsewhere, the wheel and tyre package is also upgraded with 18-inch wheels running top-shelf 265/60/R18 BF Goodrich KO2 tyres. Accommodating the wider rubber are flared wheel arches, which also serve to beef up the Triton Xtreme's stance.

At the front, the Xtreme features a bash plate for better underbody protection and a modified front bumper designed to adapt a thin auxiliary light bar further up.
Elsewhere, a custom vinyl graphics feature on the car, as does a four-inch, dual tube sports bar for the rear bed.

The 2.4-litre MIVEC four-cylinder turbodiesel powerplant however, remains stock, delivering 180 PS and 430 Nm to all four-wheels through 6-speed automatic transmission.
Only 500 units of the Triton Xtreme will be prepared by Walkinshaw Performance, 400 of which have reportedly been snapped up by Australian Mitsubishi dealers, deliveries are slated to start in H2 of this year.
