Mitsubishi has launched a limited edition variant of its aging Triton dual cab 4×4 pick-up and added new features across the Triton range, to try to keep sales buoyant during the countdown to its all-new replacement in 2015.

The GLX-R Warrior comes with a range of extra features including a diff lock, Mitsubishi’s Multi Communication System with USB input, voice recognition and Bluetooth, iPhone and iPod connectivity, eight-speaker audio system and MPSS power amplifier, black leather seat trim and six-way power adjustable driver’s seat.

The Warrior’s exterior styling includes an alloy front nudge bar (a bull bar is also available), flush-fit soft tonneau cover and Warrior decals on the front doors. It’s available in a choice of Charcoal, Cool Silver, Ironbark and White and only 200 are being made available.

Drive-away pricing for the GLX-R Warrior is $43,990 with five-speed manual transmission, while the five-speed automatic is $45,990. By comparison, the standard GLX-R manual is $45,740 plus on-roads.

Running changes to the Triton range include an upgraded audio system across all models. GL and GLX also feature Bluetooth functionality, mobile phone and iPod hands-free operation with voice recognition and steering wheel-mounted audio controls.

All dual cab Triton models are also equipped with two ISOFIX child seat anchorage points, while GLX-R Triton gains a black interior colour theme.

With early 2014 sales of the ageing Triton 4×4 range in freefall compared to the same time last year, Mitsubishi will no doubt be looking forward to the Triton’s replacement due for release early in 2015.

The new generation one-tonner is tipped to take its styling cues from the striking GR-HEV concept unveiled last year. The current Triton range, which was launched in 2006, is now one of the oldest on the Australian market.
