Mitsubishi Motors Malaysia (MMM), the official distributor of Mitsubishi vehicles in Malaysia, made a bold statement today with the introduction of the Triton Knight.
Limited to only 120 units, the Triton Knight is based on the Triton VGT Adventure variant and is created in Pearl White with accessories to match its fierce yet noble presence.
The aesthetic of the Triton Knight is accentuated by 17-inch matte black alloy rims and matte black grille for an even more aggressive stance. This tougher outlook is complimented by sports bar with sports lid and matte black rear bumper highlighting the rugged profile.
Additionally, the Triton Knight comes with a front bumper extender and exclusive Knight Body stickers.
Moving into the cabin, the makeover is even more special with exclusive Knight embroidery leather seats.
Standard equipment in the Triton Knight includes first-in-class features such as Xenon HID Headlamps with Day Time Running (DRL) Lights, push start button, keyless operation, tilt and telescopic steering and paddle shifters for manual control of the automatic transmission when the driver wants it.
Other features found in the Triton Knight include 4WD selector, touch screen audio system with reverse camera, auto headlamps and wipers, and dual zone climate control.
Under the hood, the Triton Knight is powered by 2.5-litre 4-cylinder engine with an intercooled Variable Geometry Turbo (VGT) which offers 178 PS of power at 4,000 rpm and 400 Nm of torque at 2,000 rpm.
An efficient 5-speed automatic transmission with Sport mode is available, coupled to Mitsubishi’s Easy Select 4WD system which distributes power to the front and rear axles. The Easy Select 4WD system has been continuously improved over two decades and is a robust drivetrain able to handle high torque levels.
Just like other Mitsubishi models, the all-new Triton has Mitsubishi’s RISE (Reinforced Impact Safety Evolution) body construction which uses high tensile steel that effectively absorbs and disperses crash energy from all directions while also significantly reducing overall weight. Impact bars has been added within the side doors for additional protection against side collisions.
The Triton Knight is also equipped with top safety features including Anti-lock braking (ABS) with Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD). EBD reduces the possibility of skidding when the rear end is light and the wheels may lock up on slippery conditions while braking. Other safety features that are standard across the range include dual SRS airbags, a collapsible steering column and anti-intrusion brake pedal, which is made to fold away during an accident.
Priced at RM122, 487.84 the Triton Knight comes with 2 Years of Free Maintenance with RM2,000 cash rebates OR free labour with RM4,000 cash rebates. The Triton Knight also comes with a factory warranty of 3 years or the first 100,000 km.
