Mitsubishi GLS Triton Sport – Mitsubishi Triton is a few years old now and is due for replacement very soon. However, the current model still represents a robust and reliable 4WD Ute.
To help spark interest Mitsubishi released a while ago the GLS Sport model with several additions.
Limited to just 400 units, it comes in wither white or black, exterior colours. The Sport also features a dark theme with contrasting badging and exterior trims.
Red accents are applied to the skid plate, side steps and rear section, while bonnet and tailgate decals complete a truly unique exterior appearance.
Inside It comes with leather seats, heated for the front ones, and red stitching for visual appeal.
The model comes with the standard Super Select 4WD Drivetrain with rear diff lock. The 2.4L turbo diesel engine has reasonable power and torque as well as a six speed AT.
The Triton remains a solid and practical 4WD Ute with good off-road credentials. The Sport is priced from $56,440 plus the usual costs and there may not be too many left.

Final thoughts on the Triton GLS Sport 4WD Dual Cab
Triton has always been a robust and reliable 4WD Ute.
The current model is being replaced very soon.
However, the GLS Sport model has a few extra features at a good price that will make it popular.
But there were only 400 built and most of them are probably gone already.
