Mitsubishi Triton Ute Sales

Mitsubishi Triton

In October last year Mitsubishi release an update of their Triton ute with particular emphasis on improved capability for mid-spec 4 wd models.

While recreational vehicles have shown promise in recent car sales, it is a bit of a fickle market.

The market responded well.  In November and December 2019 sales of their 4 wd models were up over 25%.

But for November 2020 their sales are down some 50%.

When we recently tested a Triton ute, of course, a friend needed to move some furniture.

When he rode in the Mitsubishi, he was surprised at how relatively quiet it was, showing that utes are getting more car like.

The Ford Ranger and Toyota Hilux are the class leading dual cab utes but the Triton is quite a few thousand dollars cheaper and at the moment they have driveaway prices from $37,000.
