Mitsubishi Motors NZ (MMNZ) will showcase its own rare breed at this year’s Fieldays – the Triton GLS 4WD Black Edition. A sleek and powerful beast with plenty of bite, it will turn heads as much for its prowess as for its extremely lean price tag.
With an RSP starting at just $34,990 (plus GST and On-Road Costs), those with an eye for a bargain can bag a swag of premium GLS extras when stock lands across the country at the start of May.
“Following the huge interest Triton drew at last year’s event, and this being Fieldays’ 50th anniversary, we wanted to put a real barn burner of an offer on the table,” said Daniel Cook, MMNZ general manager vehicle sales and marketing.
“This limited deal really does offer a whole lot of bang for your buck; the premium GLS badge brings with it a host of top-of-the-range specifications and this special Black Edition model marks the much-anticipated return of a GLS to the Triton line-up.”
Back in black
Black is very definitely the new black for this special edition Triton GLS 4WD Double-Cab. Its factory-fitted body kit includes: black 17” wheels, black over-fenders, black sports bar, black door handles, black wing mirrors, black front grille, black tailgate handle, black running boards black rear bumper, black door sashes and black headlight surrounds.
Other exterior GLS features include fog lights, high-intensity discharge headlights with integrated daytime LED running lights, and electric fold mirrors with turn indicator.
Roam and away
Owners can let this beast run loose on even the toughest terrain, thanks to Mitsubishi’s class-leading Super Select 4WD, which allows drivers to switch between 2WD and 4WD modes on the fly, even on the open road. The centre diff lock gives drivers a 60/40 torque split for maximum traction. It’s all part of MATT; Mitsubishi All-Terrain Technology, which integrates nine different systems to make Triton surefooted on every surface.
At the heart of the beast, a 2.4L turbo diesel engine delivers a hefty 437Nm with 3.5T towing capacity – so you can pack more than a picnic on your next journey.
“On top of all the GLS extras, standard features such as Smartphone Link Display Audio (SDA) and New Zealand’s leading new car warranty, Diamond Advantage, add up to make this package our best Fieldays offer yet,” said Mr Cook.
