For more than 30 years, the Mitsubishi Triton has prided itself as an out and out workhorse. It is a dependable mid-size ute, comfortable on the road (and off it), and has enough functional features to be a regular family vehicle. And its affordability and power make it a common sight in the city and the outback.
But with the advent of the new Tritons, the 2006-2015 models have fallen behind in technological specs. The good news is that we at Vhedia can assist you in the vehicle media department. If you plan to do a head unit upgrade soon, you’ve come to the right place!
A Quick Dive into the Triton
Also known as the Mitsubishi L200, the Mitsubishi Triton debuted in Australia in the 1980s and has since been a stalwart of the competitive one-tonne pick-up truck scene. This says a lot with a competition that includes the Ford Ranger and the Toyota Hilux.
The Triton’s (diesel) engine power, fuel efficiency, and modern comforts added to the attraction given by its relative affordability. Moreover, the detail given to safety and reliability makes it one of Australia’s best-selling utes.
Still, the 2006-2015 models have their share of shortcomings.
For one, these Tritons’ suspension system needs further improvement to handle the fantastic aerodynamic attributes of the vehicle. Also, the towing power is less than its contemporaries, though not that much (around 500kg difference).
However, one of the most glaring deficiencies of the 2006-2015 Mitsubishi Triton models is its vehicle media set-up. The OEM head unit cannot give you the technical support every driver needs today (i.e. navigation, hands-free controls, access to apps and the internet, etc.). The factory reverse camera also leaves more desired quality and is unavailable in all models.
If you own any of these models of the Mitsubishi Triton, you will want a head unit upgrade to be at par, in-car infotainment-wise, with the needs of drivers today.
