2006 Mitsubishi Triton
Coming soon to a Mitsubishi dealer near you? Exports of the new Triton pickup truck produced at Mitsubishi Thailand are due to move on to a full-scale footing in the second half of 2006, the company has announced. Shipments of the Triton to Europe, where it is known as the L200, started late last year. The vehicle is to be shipped to about 140 markets around the globe, including Australia, the Middle East, Latin America, the ASEAN region, and Japan. Developed as a global model and launched in Bangkok last August, the Triton has been well received in Thailand for what its makers describe as passenger car-like ride comfort, powerful common-rail direct injection diesel engine, and its styling.
