In celebration of heritage month, Mitsubishi has revealed the Triton Heritage Edition, a limited-edition version of the Japanese firm’s double-cab bakkie celebrating the company’s contribution to the South African motoring landscape. 

Triton Heritage Edition

“Bakkies occupy a very special place in the hearts and lives of South Africans, and Mitsubishi bakkies have a long and distinguished heritage in South Africa, if you think about the legacy of the Colt and now the growth of the more improved Triton,” said Jeffrey Allison, General Manager of Marketing at Mitsubishi Motors South Africa (MMSA).

Limited to only 50 units, the Heritage Edition is based on the top-tier Triton 4×4 model. However, setting this model apart from the bakkie it’s based on, the special-edition model features a variety of black trim elements. This hue has been applied to the front grille, lower scuff plate, wheel arch cladding, and roof bars. The front wheel arches feature numbered ‘Heritage’ badges. As standard, the Triton Heritage Edition ships with a Keko roll bar, rubberised load bed, black tonneau cover, and a tow bar.

The cabin also features a numbered plaque to remind passengers of this model’s special-edition status. Standard items include touchscreen infotainment with screen-mirroring functionality, dual-zone climate control and leather-trimmed seats. 

The Triton Heritage Edition is equipped with Mitsubishi’s 2.4-litre turbocharged four-cylinder diesel engine producing 133 kW and 430 Nm of torque. The oil-burner is coupled with a six-speed automatic transmission. 

Priced at R719 990, the Heritage Edition slots into the line-up below the Xtreme variant (R748 990) and above the model it’s based on, priced at R679 990. A five-year/90 000 km service plan and a three years or 100 000 km warranty are included.

The Heritage Edition also comes with a bespoke gift box incorporating the limited-edition number, space for two keys and a host of experiential benefits, including the opportunity to join a bespoke 4×4 club. A unique Heritage Edition card allows owners access to a Heritage Edition portal where owners will be treated to VIP customer support.
