The specially-liveried SUVs and trucks promise to wow the crowd at the selected Red Peak Adventure venues with amazing feats, never before seen in this country. Heading the Red Peak Adventure limelight is the recently introduced Mitsubishi Triton pick-up, along with the Pajero Sport SUV and ASX Compact SUV. The allocated vehicles are scheduled to run a wide range of obstacles including a 45-degree and 25-feet tall “sky” ramp that points upwards to the sky. Other challenges include the roller ramp test, side traverse, uneven ramp test and staircase ramp test.
The Mitsubishi Red Peak Adventure makes its first stop at the MITC Mydin in Malacca from 15 – 16 August, then moves on to the Angsana Plaza in Johor Baru from 22 – 23 August. The show runs from 10a till 8p over the weekend at both venues, with the last test ride at 7p. Admission is free, and vehicle bookings made during the event entitle customers to complimentary limited edition Triton umbrellas (first 100 customers only). Test drive any Mitsubishis at the Red Peak event and receive free KFC vouchers. In addition, there are loads of lucky draw prizes, including a grand prize worth RM888, for visitors. Furthermore, kids who participate in the sand art competition stand a chance to take home a brand new bicycle.
The recently introduced Mitsubishi Triton is deemed the “Ultimate Sport Utility Truck”, as it combines the interior comfort of a sedan with the functionality and reliability of a pickup. The fully-imported Triton is offered in five versions, with prices ranging from RM 67,603.64 till 108,273.68.
The Mitsubishi ASX, MMM’s first locally-assembled variant, is a compact SUV that’s powered by a 2.0-liter MIVEC engine (150PS and 197Nm).
