Mitsubishi Triton 2020 toughens up! New range-topping GSR and GLX-R variants pump up the street cred

Two new trim levels have joined the Mitsubishi Triton line-up, wth the GSR and GLX-R designed to add touch of tough to the Japanese brand’s popular dual-cab. 

It starts with the GSR, which will sit at the top of the Triton lineup, where it will command a $50,990 price tag (or more with a soft, hard or rolltop tonneau), and which has been designed to lend the ute a “tough and modern-looking presence”.

Mitsubishi has equiped the GSR with 18-inch black alloy wheels, and the black-on-black theme continues with the grille, headlights, skid plate, mirrors, door handles and sidesteps. Inside, you’ll find black leather (tan orange is an option, too) on the seats, steering wheel and shift knob, and the seats up front are heated, while a Multi Around Monitor has also been added to the standard equipment. 

To further up the tough factor, you can opt for a soft ($2699), hard ($4699) or rolltop ($4999) tonneau pack, each of which includes a black sports bar, a under rail tub liner, tail gate assist and floor mats. 

The GSR will hit Mitsubishi dealerships in March, and remains powered by the Triton’s 2.4-litre diesel donk good for 133kW and 430Nm. 

But if you can’t wait for that, Mitsubishi has also pulled the covers off the GLX-R, which will sit between the GLX+ and the GLS on the Triton lineup, and is in dealerships now.

That car gets 18-inch alloys, new fog lamps, and chrome on the door mirrors and handles, front bumper and grille. 

“These new grades bring a new level of style and functionality to the Triton range and will ensure we have the ideal vehicle for all Triton customers,” says Mitsubishi Motors Australia’s senior manager of product strategy, Owen Thomson.
