BOTHAVILLE – At this year’s Nampo Harvest Day Mitsubishi Motors will be unveiling the ultimate iteration of their popular Triton double cab.
The Mitsubishi Triton Halo AT35 is based on the flagship Triton double cab 4×4 and was developed in conjunction with Arctic Trucks, the Icelandic company with a reputation for building bakkies that can conquer the harsh Icelandic conditions, which makes them perfect for hard core off-roading in South Africa too.
“Bakkies are an integral part of the farming community, and we believe that the unveiling of the Mitsubishi Triton Halo AT35 at Nampo Harvest Day is the perfect drawcard to our stand where we will be showcasing four brand new models,” says Jeffrey Allison, General Manager: Marketing at Mitsubishi Motors South Africa (MMSA).
Bakkies and the modification of bakkies remain extremely popular in South Africa and the Mitsubishi Triton Halo AT35 prototype is a completely unique product that gives off-road enthusiasts and extremely capable vehicle that is well engineered and backed by Mitsubishi’s factory warranty.
The imposing styling of the Triton in standard form, dominated by the Dynamic Shield frontal design is further bolstered by a conversion that comprises a suspension lift and 17 -inch BF Goodrich off-road tyres fitted to Arctic Truck alloy wheels resulting in a wider track and ride height increase of approximately 35 mm. The suspension comprises of the rugged 4 x 4 Iron Man Suspension
The bodywork has been comprehensively modified to support these upgrades and includes a new front bumper, extended wheel arches and wider fender liners that all integrate perfectly with the Tritons sculpted exterior resulting in a vehicle that looks as good as what it is functional.
Additional accessories include a snorkel to assist the engine to breathe clean air when travelling in dusty conditions, improving performance and durability and a roof rack that houses accessories such as a high lift jack and spade.
The Mitsubishi Triton AT35 also features a number of Ralliart accessories, all of which are available from Mitsubishi dealers, including Ralliart floormats, mudflaps and decals all round.
Standard equipment includes a rubberised load bin that is fitted with a Keko Style Bar and Keko Tonneau cover.
Inside the infotainment system has been upgraded to a seven-inch Sony Display Audio system while the leather seats feature bespoke stitching.
“Mitsubishi vehicles are known for their durability and proof thereof is an industry leading very low warranty claim rate of 0.0032 warranty claims from a warranty car parc of just over 12 000 vehicles. As such we make sure that we partner with reputable suppliers that are able to enhance our models in a manner that accentuates the original equipment and character and retains the dependability and reliability that our customers expect,” concludes Allison.
The Mitsubishi Triton Halo AT35 prototype has been built by Arctic Trucks and is backed by the same warranty as regular Mitsubishi Triton models, allowing buyers to drive a vehicle that has been extensively modified for off-road use with peace of mind.
