Concept XRT outs real next Triton. We strip off the camo
Mitsubishi has outed its 2024 Triton bakkie via the so-called Ralliart Mitsubishi XRT Concept Triton 411. The concept which albeit clad in garish cracked camo, reveals the full skin of the much anticipated bakkie set to share its heart with the all-new Nissan Navara. Auto has wasted no time to update our previous render to reveal the actual look of the new bakkie.
Concept XRT proves original Auto concept
Concept XRT proves our original render of the orange pickup to be close to the fact. Now with sight of the real skin and face, we are able to show you exactly how Triton will loon in the black sketch on top of this page. The other two images are of the concept.
Featuring the expected split LED headlights and daytime running lights, that aggressive stance is enhanced by the expected boldly flared wheel arches and a muscular shoulder line. Its kicked-up rear window and square arch design are a tribute to the outgoing bakkie.
XRT hints at possible Ralliart Raptor rival
Ralliart is of course Mitsubishi’s sporting arm that won it all those World Rally and Dakar titles. Do this concept’s Ralliart get-up hint to a future Ford Ranger Raptor super bakkie rival? Time will tell, but Mitsubishi Motors president and CEO Takao Kato added fuel to that fire at the Bangkok reveal…
“The all-new Triton is going through final touch-ups in preparation for its release of the Concept,” Kato-san explained. “We have performed rigorous endurance tests around the world while also incorporating the know-how gained from rally activities as we continue our drive toward further growth.”
Hybrid, EV versions likely
Powertrains will be confirmed. A hybrid version, likely a plug-in, and a battery-electric versions are expected to join the range anon. Triton will be built at Mitsubishi’s Laemchabang Thailand, plant. The final bakkie set to break cover sometime this year
The next Triton will be unveiled in Thailand, before making its way to South Africa. Its Nissan Navara and also Renault Arctic siblings will follow as part of this all-new Nissan-Mitsubishi Alliance bakkie generation. – Michele Lupini
