Mitsubishi South Africa has launched a brand-new derivative in its Triton bakkie line-up, with the local arm of the Japanese automaker revealing pricing and spec for the Triton GL single cab. 


“The launch of the Single Cab is firmly directed at the fleet and small business market and aimed to provide a cost-effective solution in the face of the steadily rising price of fuel and the recent repo rates hike,” said Jeffrey Allison, General Manager of Marketing at Mitsubishi Motors South Africa (MMSA). “Offering a more versatile commercial vehicle range is a clear indication of MMSA’s consumer-centric approach of listening to and acting on the needs of customers.”

Priced at R409 995 (R75 000 less than the double-cab model), the single-cab variant of the firm’s “robust” workhorse features a black grille and door and tailgate handles. The side steps and rear bumper are also black. The entry-level version further gains automatic headlamps and automatic windscreen wipers. Rear air vents are present in the cabin. Additionally included is manual air conditioning, as are two airbags for the front occupants. 

The Triton GL single cab 4×2 is exclusively available with a 2.4-litre engine and six-speed manual transmission. A limited-slip differential is present. The turbodiesel unit produces 100 kW and 324 N.m of torque. Mitsubishi claims an average fuel consumption figure of 8.0 L/100 km. 

This variant ships with Mitsubishi’s three-year/100 000 km warranty and a five-year/90 000 km service plan. Five-year/unlimited km roadside assistance is also included.
