The driver gets a 7-inch multi-informational display while at the center is a 9-inch infotainment screen that has a 360-degree camera function, smartphone connectivity, and also the Mitsubishi Connected Services which allows owners to control the vehicle from the smartphone.
The new ladder frame platform of the Triton is built with 60 percent higher torsional rigidity and 40 percent higher bending rigidity.
