Tokyo, 17 February 2015: The all-new Triton has been developed to be the “Ultimate Sport Utility Truck,” combining the comfortable interior of a passenger car with the functionality and reliability of a pickup.
Muscular, sleek and dynamic styling which evokes the form of a well-honed athlete, the all-new Triton also provides generous interior space, ample payload capacity, and class-leading handling. The all-new Triton achieves high levels of safety performance through its durable and sturdy chassis and frame structures along with MMC’s own RISE*2 impact safety body. The all-new Triton also delivers quietness and ride comfort on a par with a passenger car thanks to a new diesel engine, optimization of the suspension, the strategic placement of sound insulation, absorption and vibration damping materials.
The all-new Triton is available in Single Cab, Double Cab and Club Cab variants, with a three-engine lineup. A new 2.4-liter MIVEC*3 turbo diesel which provides environmental and motive performance among the best in its class joins improved versions of the well-proven 2.5-liter turbo diesel and 2.4-liter gasoline engines used to power its predecessor.
The all-new Triton accommodates the varying needs and requirements of consumers, everything from commercial to private use as cab type, engine, drivetrain and functional equipment specifications will be optimized for each region it is to be sold in.
At the launch ceremony MMC Chairman and CEO Osamu Masuko described the importance of the all-new Triton: “The previous Triton was launched in August of 2005 and has sold a total of 1,260,000 units worldwide as of September of this year. The Triton is one of our most important products since it contributed the most to our revitalization. Just as the previous Triton did we expect the all-new Triton to continue to be our core model, contributing to improving our corporate value and sustainable growth in the future.”
