Not long after the Triton Phantom release at the start of the year, Mitsubishi Motors Malaysia has came up with another version of the Triton; this time it is the Triton Knight. The newly announced Mitsubishi Triton Knight is limited to only 120 units in the country.
The Mitsubishi Triton Knight is based on the Triton VGT Adventure and available in only the Pearl White body hue. Mitsubishi Malaysia has input numerous addition accessories to match its aggressive and so-called “Noble” presence. Among the addition exterior elements on the Triton Knight are the matte black front grille, 17-inch matte black alloy wheels, sport bar with lid and matte black rear bumper. To infuse a more rugged look, the Triton Knight has a front bumper extender and special decals at the rear end.
Inside, the Triton Knight pick up comes with the exclusive Knight embroidery leather seats. Standard equipment in the Triton Knight should include push start button, keyless operation, tilt, telescopic steering with paddle shifters, 4WD selector, touch screen audio system with reverse camera, auto head lighting, auto wipers and dual zone climate control.
The Triton Knight is powered by a 2.5-liter 4-cylinder with VGT powerplant, coupled with the Double Overhead Cam (DOHC) 16-valve turbodiesel and common-rail system. Unless otherwise noted, the Triton Knight should match the Triton Phantom’s output of 178 PS and 400 Nm of torque at 2,000 rpm. The engine is paired to a 5-speed automatic transmission with Sport mode.
Mitsubishi Malaysia has listed the limited edition Triton Knight at RM 122, 487.84, along with a two-year warranty. In addition, this model comes with RM2, 000 – 4,000 cash rebates with free labor and an additional factory warranty of 3 years. The Mitsubishi Triton line-up in the country is offered in five variants: Triton VGT Adventure Automatic at RM116,053.20 in Earth Green, Pearl White, Shadow Black and Red Solid shades; Triton VGT Automatic at RM104,383.92 in Sterling Silver, Pearl White and Shadow Black shades; Triton VGT Manual at RM97,949.28; Triton Manual at RM87,052.44 in Sterling Silver and White Solid colors; and Triton Quest (4×2) at RM71,294.24.
