Mitsubishi has announced that the all-new Triton one-ton pickup truck has earned a maximum five-star rating in the 2024 ANCAP (Australasian New Car Assessment Program) as the first double-cab pickup to receive the highest rating in the current 2023-2025 protocols.

ANCAP evaluates the overall safety performance of new vehicles in Australia and New Zealand. In December 2023, the new Triton also achieved a five-star safety rating in the 2023 ASEAN NCAP, a comprehensive safety performance assessment for new vehicles in the ASEAN region.

According to Mitsubishi, the Triton adopts the high-rigidity RISE body that both absorbs energy and minimizes cabin deformation in the event of a crash, as well as eight SRS airbags. Safety features such as Active Stability Control (ASC) and Forward Collision Mitigation system (FCM) with cyclist and pedestrian detection are also standard on all models.

The Triton one-ton pickup truck traces its roots back to the Forte launched in 1978. During the past 45 years, approximately 5.7 million units have been produced over five generations and sold in 150 countries around the world, making it one of Mitsubishi Motors’ most important products.

The 2024 Triton features a complete overhaul ranging from the interior and exterior design to chassis, ladder frame and engine. It was first launched in Thailand in July 2023, followed by the Philippines in January, Japan in February, and Australia and New Zealand in March, with another 100 market launches set to take place.
